    Run Disk Clean Up and see how many queued error reports you have, once I had 11GB of data...

    Thanks, found the issue.

    I use qdipp for font smoothing in Windows (works great). For some reason it created a MASSIVE crash dump folder (>25GB). Deleted that and problem solved. Been using that for years and that never happened before.

    Bizarre.

    Thanks Ruffles. I used WinDirStat years ago on another computer but lost it along the way. Just the other day I was thinking "didn't I used to have an app that showed file size?" Going to download it now, a must for small SSD.

    Lol, thanks new guy, I wasn't sure exactly when and where I should post in here. I'll make sure I clear it with you first in the future.

    Agreed. Just tried it. WinDirStat is prettier, but SpaceSniffer has some more useful feature. On a small SSD it's nice to have both.
