Free Space Quest...
Hi, like everyone....I'm on the continuing quest for free space!

I have a custom box with a 500gb main drive, and a hot swappable 1T drive.
Also... 8 Xeon processors and 12 gigs of ram on a supermicro server board & a GTX260 video card. All in a Thermaltake portable case! She runs sweet!! Never had a problem w/ the box or Vista U!

My biggest problem is "keeping" open space on my main drive! I have about 25gb's in apps and "maybe" 20gigs of files on my main drive (that I can see!)...

What gives?

I have used utilities and qimmicks to free up "dead" & "temp" & "shadow" files but nothing substantial has happened! Except the first time I used a utility, it freed up about 50gb's! Then it quickly disappeared within a month!!

I have 3.7 gigs of free space on my drive...and it's very frustrating!

I use this computer for both graphics and video editing & creation and store everything on my swappable drive...which doesn't have any issue w/ space.

Should I use another windows OS and be better served? I have several 64bit apps, could that be an issue?

Is there something I'm overlooking as far as utilities for freeing space?

I pride myself on being somewhat computer literate...but this "space issue" is a black science, and very frustrating to me!!

Thanks for your help! Ron
