forgot the system specs;
Asus P6T Deluxe, i7 920, 6GB, GTX260-218 55nm, intel SSD X25-M 160GB G2
I got 10GB extra back by deleting windows 7 restore points. ( http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/how-to-delete-system-restore-points-windows-7/ )
so the score is now:
Total Files Listed:
142506 File(s) 30,200,760,844 bytes
61164 Dir(s) 40,100,790,272 bytes free
30+40 = 70Gb on a 160 GB drive, 90GB is unaccounted for.
anyone a suggestion?
thanks in advance
found it! ran treesize pro as admin, (does NOT work when you run a dosbox as admin and do dir * /s)
It has nothing to do with my SSD. its thanks to windows 7
C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player\Art Cache
2.1 Million files in one directory! thanks Media Player!
ill try to find out what causes it. and find out how to delete them, for the sake of completion. i'll post the solution here.
You can try running Crap Cleaner to delete those files--it does delete stuff from Windows Media Player.
deleting was easy, and 100% straight forward;
I browsed to the directory, right clck LocalMLS and
press shift while choosing delete, resolved the issue (although it took 30
minutes to delete even on SSD it saved up 78GB of space.)
