where's my hard drive being used????
i have just got a 2nd hand laptop and i have deleted everything i can find on it that was from previous users but i have still only got 10 gb free, that means that there is 50gb being used somewhere and for the life of me i cant find it. i have gone through the hard drive all afternoon and deleted loads of stuff, removed loads of programs and then run a file shred program. is it possible that there are other users and files somewhere , it was previously owned by a family and i know the kids used it but i cant find any user info for them, is there a way to just wipe the HD just leaving the OS or retrurning to the factory settings like on a apple computer.
sorry if this is a dumb question but i am used to an ibook on which i could do this easily
