I didn't even download anything...

Seriously.

 

What the f*ck is going on?

 

I didn't download anything. I didn't make a copy of anything. I didn't delete anything.

 

And I suddenly have 1 less GB of space on my hard drive.

 

I can't post this in the Tech & PC Chat place, because nobody has responded to me there.

 

 

Please keep the replies clean, logical, and on-topic.

 

 

And DON'T YOU DARE tell me that I must have downloaded something, because I didn't.

Impossible.

 

I only download things from Steam.

Steam can automatically download updates for games (does that to me all the time) without any notice, sometimes can be around 1gb updates.

Steam updates almost every day, it could be that. Also, getting a virus can be as simple as visiting a site.

The question topic might also be appropriate. icon14.gif

 

It's probably some sort of automatic software update like what was already suggested (which lots of programs can do). That or you made a huge file and didn't realize how big it was.

 

HD space doesn't deteriorate, so you or your system definitely did it purposefully. (Welcome to the SS Jagoff, I'm your captain, Captain Obvious!)

 

 

I think it's because of virus.

And you can catch viruses in many different ways, it's not limited to intentionally downloading programs. You should be running weekly or bi-weekly malware scans regardless of whether you think you've got sh*t on there or not.

When your computer runs out of physical RAM, it expands the virtual memory which takes up hard drive space. Check your virtual RAM setting.

 

Also check your system restore settings. Those restore images take about that much space.

Search for all files and see the most recently modified ones. Note if they are big and in which places.
