Hello,

I have win xp home ed. SP2 and when I go to "C" properties I see as used
space 11.1 GB, but if I open "C" then "select all" -- showing hidden
files and folders -- I have a total of 7.5 GB in used space, how come
that I have a difference of almost 3 GB?? Does anyone know?
Thanks so much.

E.

Additional hard drive space is used by the Page File, the Hibernation File,
and the System Restore file.

That's normal, because Windows always hide system files.
