    Default C drive space reduced drastically/reducing automatically

    this is something serious which is giving me a real worry & headache. my c drive's space has reduced drastically than it should have been. it's total space is 50.7 gb. but now it's only showing 3.95gb left as i write. but each time i go back to check it reduces again & at one stage it showed 0 bytes left. as per my calculation the drive should be filled with 35gb max. only win 7 is installed along with few softwares those were installed by the shop at purchase. i always install my softwares on D. i even calculated the spaces taken by Windows, Program Files, and Users folders. is sum totals to 34.14gb.

    so please help. i am really freaking out.

    Do you've system restore on? Try turning it off and delete the restore points, and try deleting the temporary files you might have from c:/users/youruseraccountname/local settings or local data or something like that/temp folder, can't rule out the chances for a virus infection too, and do check where you're saving your downloaded contents, if it's in the downloads folder within your documents, it's taking space up from your C drive as well.

    Page files can't take up 34 gigabytes of space! Just type system restore or system protection in the start menu and you'll see windows will come up with the guide for you, or you can right click on the my computer icon, go to properties and disable system protection aka system restore from there.

    1. Right click on Computer, select properties. Click on Advanced System Settings on the left pane. Click on 'System protection' tab and select 'configure' on the bottom right with C; drive selected and from where you should be able to figure out how to turn off system restore and delete previous restore points.

    2. Manage virtual memory, go to Advance system settings as mentioned previously and this time select the 'Advanced' tab. Of the 3 settings listed here, click on the first. select advanced tab from the new window and click change and select a cstom size for drive c:. Set both the initial and maximum sizes as 2048. click ok, and accept all further queries. Restart.

    3. click on your taskbar windows logo (the start button) and type in the following - %temp% . Delete all the files and folders here. If anything is being used and cannot be removed, let them be there, delete the rest.

    These should solve your issues.

    @gamefreak , are you sure this is not a problem due to virus? i had a similar problem. install microsoft security essential, get update and do a full scan.

    Windows.old is a backup of your previously installed/remains of a previous version of windows, if you're sure that you didn't have any valuable documents along with your previously installed windows, go ahead and delete it.
