ardi Posted April 10, 2008 Report Share Posted April 10, 2008 I was using utorrent for 3 days, I realized that my harddisk was full (80gb all full). I erased some files but I found out that some files are NOT even in the hard disk and utorrent was responsble form that . This may seem complicated, but I'll make it clear by giving an example75 GB of my hard disk was seemed to be full when I clicked C; properties (the graphic showing the free space in pink and used space in blue). I erased some files and checked again for C, and saw it was freer(?) from the start; lets say 60 GB. Then I realised (by clicking on the yellow folders seperately in C) that the sum of the bytes I used was only 10 GB!! If I calculated indivually all the files in C; it was only 10 GB at total. But when I checked my hard disk from C (by properties) it said 60 GB was in use! where the hell was the difference? The difference was like vaporized, all gone!! (not hidden folders, I checked them) I made a virus scan but there was nothing to find.Then I formatted my computer thinking I had a problem. the format finished, and I had a clean and fresh 78 or 77 GB (the rest is used in windows XP and my private folders) I thought the problem was over and downloaded utorrent.I opened a torrent that was totally 4.9 GB's. when the torrent was downloaded like %1, I accidentally deleted the torrent and the FİLES. I was a little bit suspicious about my pre-system, so I checked for my hard disk to figure out how much space was let. I was astonished when I realized that 13 GB was being used (whereas only 2 ACTUALLY were used by me). I made some tests in utorrent by putting in torrents and deleting them. I found out at last that the problem was utorrent. my system works normal without utorrent but somehow utorrent makes my system fall apart by filling my system with junk that I cannot even find!The program (utorrent) downloaded much much more things than the torrent, but the worst part is I cannot delete them because I cannot even FİND them. They truly don't exist (or I can't find) , but they are in the system somehow.Can someone please help me?? Note: I searched the forums about my problem but couldn't find any topics. if there is any other issue about this problem; I apologize. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
