Ref: Lost 40GB Disc Space of My Hard Drive
I’m again. I should write the query in detail. Please have a look.
My only user account got corrupted yesterday and whenever I was logging into it, it used to open with a TEMP profile. Then I made a NEW administrative user account and copied all the data from my OLD account.
That way I could recover 40GB data from my OLD user account.
Now, logging into the NEW user account I deleted the corrupted OLD user account through “Control Panel”> “User account”.
OLD account was deleted, I didn’t let windows keep any files as I already copied earlier. I let windows delete all the files in the OLD account BUT probably nothing was deleted.
Though I can’t see the old account, I didn’t gain 30 GB disk space. As I copied all data from OLD to NEW I already used 40 GB. So after deleting OLD account I should recover 40 GB but donno what happened. Please guide me how to recover 40GB space. Please help.
Well, I have Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2.
