Hey guys I have a problem with storage space with my SSD. I have a Intel X25-V 40GB. I am using it as a boot drive for W7 Ultmiate 64bit. Allong with Windows on this drive I only have a few other very small programs installed on it. For some reason I now only have 1.4Gb of free space! I have used Ccleaner to wipe temp internetfiles (I don't like to do that) but that only frees up about 1Gb. What on earth is eating up all my space?

I have done a search on C: drive (my SSD) with the following *.* to bring up all the files on C: and then sorted them by size. Then moved some large media files I found to one of my HDD. I got about 2Gb free from that but it quickly fills right back up within a few days. I have uninstalled some small programs but that really dosent do much.

Is there a location that Windows stores temp files that are safe to delete? If so is there a way to change that location to one of my other HDD's? I have 2 500gb in RAID 0 and 1 500Gb I use for media storage. You can see my system in my sig below.

I have had this problem for a while now and have read and done many things to stop this from happening but it just fills right back up wuithin a few days or a week.

Thanks my peeps!

System restore could be taking up a boatload of space. Also virtual memory

Ahh yes, I forgot to mention I have System Restore & Virtual Memory turned off. I have tried so many things over time it's hard to remember all the steps I have taken to solve this issue.

Thank You

Here is something that I found out concerning boot up time and mapped drives. I searched this thread and it returned no hits. Anyway, if you have any mapped drives that are set to 'reconnect at startup' you might have added a minute or so to your boot up time. I was trying to figure out why I had such a long delay after the welcome screen. My monitor was black with a cursor for almost a minute. I went in and disconnected my two mapped drives and now I boot up in about 15-16 seconds. Doesn't even show the welcome screen anymore. I was amazed at the difference. Heck, if I need to go into one of my other computers it doesn't take no time at all to map it. Maybe this will help someone.


FYI

Newegg has the Agility 3 240GB on sale for $324.99 with a MIR of $30 which makes it just $294.99. This is really a pretty good deal for that size ssd.

Just get an SSD, they're worth it, end of story. I really want a 120GB version for Windows, since my 60GB can only hold about 3 big games.

I've got Crysis, Crysis 2 and BF3 beta installed and I only have 10GB free.
