This is kind of time-sensitive as I leave for school next week and this machine is staying behind as a donation to a local school as a video editing terminal. Faster responses would be greatly appreciated.
So, I just built a computer based off of a Shuttle XPC Glamor barebones box (C2D 2.66GHz, 4GB RAM, 1.5TB HDD), and after everything's all set up I've hit a bit of a problem. OS is XP Pro 64-bit SP2.
So the hard drive is 1.5TB, SATA3. My Computer currently reports the drive as having 386GB used (that's over a quarter
of the drive). If I un-hide hidden and system files, select everything in C:\, and right-click -> "Properties", it reports the total size of everything as ~13GB (images included). I'm inclined to agree with the 13GB reading, because what I've installed should not total 386GB. The things I've done to the computer so far:
- (long) Format drive as NTFS/Install OS
- Install system drivers (VGA, sound, LAN, etc.)
- Windows Update for OS updates
- Install AVG Free edition and update
- Install Adobe Premiere CS4 and Encore CS4
I noticed the (HUGE) discrepancy after I installed the Adobe software, but to be honest I didn't actually look at it before that point so I can't say for sure when anything changed.
I've also run most of a virus scan (ran out of time, will be running another, full scan soon), CHKDSK, and defragged and it didn't fix the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Please and thanks,
