I need some help guys..
I was dowloaing the trail version of After Effects off adobe.com.
After the installation I downloaded a few torrents.
Computer is running smooth, but it went from 64gb to 263gb within a few hours.
Can someone help me?

RE: 263 GBs taken up within hours.
Hi Nick85,

I hope that it is your free space that has gone down from 64GB to 26.3GB and
not your used space that has gone up from 64GB to 263GB. Either way, to lose
this amount of storage space in a few hours is quite dramatic. Did you have
any problems prior to downloading the torrents? Check your network for
excessive activity. Personally, I would never use torrents as you don't know
what is being installed along with the requested files. My advice to you
would be to uninstall the torrent program and run a full system check with
all of your malware detection software. If you find anything, allow the
software to automatically deal with it, restarting your machine if necessary.
Note that for these checks I strongly recommend that you disconnect from the
Internet and only reconnect when you have finished.
