Just at a guess, you might not have your view settings to display hidden or system files. If so, you will not see the system page file.

Also, the system does not show space reserved for PC health (system recovery). How much RAM is installed on your server? How long has it been in service? The backup files for PC health may be using up a huge percent of your drive.

There are also tons of update files from Microsoft stored in the Windows directory one can safely remove.

If you would like me to remote into your system, we can arrange for a time for a remote session and I can take a look at the space on your hard drive.

Let me know if that would be something you'd like to try.

    I am not familiar with Netbackup, but it is possible it is caching the files on your C: drive.

    Look at all the options and configurations for Netbackup to see if it stores files temporarily on the C: drive. You may be able to change a configuration from C: to D: or some other drive.

    Have you tried going to Control panel > Folder options and set your view to show hidden files and folders?

How to Maximize and Fix the Size of Your Windows Swapfile


<b> <br /></b> Whenever Windows needs more memory than the RAM that you have installed, it uses some of your hard drive space as memory. This memory is referred to as virtual memory, and the space it uses on the hard drive is called the Swapfile.<br /> At the time Microsoft incorporated the Swapfile concept into Windows, hard drive space was at a premium. We were referring to hard drive sizes in megabytes, not in terrabybes as we do today. <br /> According, Microsoft allowed windows to dynamially change the size of the Swapfile (between pre-determined minimum and maximum values) proportional to real-time system memory requirements. This method insured that the "premium" hard drive space would be not be used by the system when there were minimal or no virtual memory requirements.<br /> However, there is some overhead involved with this method of determining Swapfile size as Windows has to continuously allocate and de-allocate hard drive space for use by the Swapfile. Considering the size of today's hard drives, we frequently find 30 or more Gigabytes of hard drive space available (especially on today's home computers). And Swapfile requirements are usually between 1 Mb. And 1 Gb. (1 Gb. = 1,000 Mb.). <br /> Considering the above, if you have an extra 10 or 20 Gb. of available hard drive space, why not set the minimum and maximum values of your Swapfile size to be equal, and relieve Windows of the task of managing your Swapfile size?<br /> To do this, perform the following procedure in Windows XP:<br /> NOTE: This procedure will be somewhat different for other operating systems.<br /> Click on START, and then CONTROL PANEL.<br /> Set contol panel to the "classic mode"<br /> Double click on SYSTEM. And in the Systems Properties box, click on ADVANCED<br /> In the Performance Box click on SETTINGS and then click on ADVANCED<br /> In the virtual memory box click on CHANGE<br /> NOTE: If you have more that 1 drive (volume), all will be listed. Only change the swapfile setting for the volume that presently contains the swapfile.<br /> In the virtual memory dialog box, click on the SWAPFILE DRIVE and click on CUSTOM SIZE.<br /> The initial and maximum sizes of the Swapfile will now be highlighted.<br /> The maximum size should be less than 20% of the available space (listed above the swapfile sizes). If it is not, you may not want to apply this procedure as your hard drive free space is somewhat limited.<br /> To continue, click on the INITIAL SIZE box and change the size to be the same as the size contained in the MAXIMUM SIZE box. Then click on SET and then OK.<br /> Close all dialog boxes and re-boot your computer.<br /> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If there is a large number of unused space on other partition you could directly allocate the free space the your system partition, but keep in mind backup your important files is recommended no matter which way you use when re-partition hard drive, learn more from this link: http://www.extend-partition.com/help/allocate-free-space.html

Total space problem. i have a buffalo turbo usb ministation 160GB but when i open my computer it has only a total size of 149GB...how to make it 160GB?......please help


The windows use some space for space addresing but not that much

It shoves 149 GB because manufacterers use the terms gigabyte in metric (base ten) way.

IT means 160 GB = 160 * 1000 MB = 160 000 * 1000 KB= 160 000 000 * 1000 Bytes

when you convert that in Gigabyte that computer use (1GB = 1024MB, 1MB = 1024 KB, 1 KB = 1024 Bytes) you get:

160 000 000 000 Bytes = 160 000 000 000 /1024 KB = 156250000 / 1024 MB = 152587,890625 / 1024 GB = 149,011 GB

Hi Bijay.
Neither is at fault. Please click on this Seagate link:

Scroll down to: Partitioning the drive in Windows XP / Windows 2000 (for systems where this is the 2nd drive in the system).
Follow the instruction on the web site.
This Seagate web site will help you setup the Seagate 160 drive.

If you feel the drive is still at fault you can run Seagate’s SeaTools. Click on the next link:
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools
This software will check the 160GB drive.
(Follow the online instructions for), SeaTools for DOS.

In a Windows XP system & using a FAT 32 & a cluster size of 16kb instead of NTFS. Windows will see the total size of the drive but can only access 149GB of drive space. 11GB of drive space will be used by the FAT. File Allocation Table. The FAT is windows guide to every cluster on the drive.
XP uses NTFS & sets each cluster to 4kb. This 4kb size lowers the total usable GB size & uses more GB's for the FAT. You're 127GB size may be correct for a Win XP system using a NTFS file system. The FAT is using 33GB of drive space as a locator for every cluster on the 160GB drive.
Help with understanding the NTFS file system: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/expert/russel_october01.mspx

Bijay if you are still having trouble understanding please post any questions here.

Good luck!
