    Guys, my 100GB C drive is showing it's running out of space, but when I highlight all folders and check the size it shows only 50GB. It is set to show hidden files too.

    Where is the rest of the drive space?

    I'd use Treesize to get a real look at whats on your drive. Have you carried out disk cleanup and all the regular jazz?

    Or Is the drive only showing a 50gb total capacity? You may have created an even partition and one half hasn't been recognised?

    hiberfil.sys!

    Thanks for your tip, this program showed that hiberfil.sys took rest of the space.

    Can I kill it? :worried:

    Odd. Was it a clean install of W8(.1), or have you gone all W10?

    I'll do it all again and see if that changes anything. Whole process again.
