    Hi Guys

    anyone know an app/way of displaying disk space utilisation? I have recently setup a system with Vista 64 on a 24gig partition but, between it and a the couple of apps (nothing big!) all the space has gone....:confused:

    I'v done the usual stuff like clearing explorer, temp files, deleting page files etc.

    scratch that, got one :thumbsup:

    Now I have two large files, a hibernation and pagefile. Problem is, I have set the system to "no pagefile" but it won't remove it or delete it - keeps saying its locked. I managed to get rid of the hibernation file. I'm using Vista 64.

    After you set your system to no pagefile, did you reboot straight away?

    Cheers

    Yeap - although I have solved it now.

    Basically, i reset the pagefile to 16meg, rebooted, then set it to zero again. All gone now all though I dont know why I had to do it a long way roung.

    Thanks anyway!
