5GBs off my hardrive disappear?
so I have a really crappy hard drive it only has 30gb, it was full and i wanted to download a game so i deleted a bunch of big applications (mostly old games) giving me 7.5gb to spare, the installer to the game required 4.5gb so i downloaded that and after it finished i had 1.9gb left. so the installer downloads and it says its corrupted so im ****ed off at this point after waiting 3 1/2 hours for it to complete, so i erase the files it downloaded to my desktop and went to check how much gb i had left and it said i had 2.5gb so i did a disk cleanup and now i have 3gb out of an original 7.5, i went to see if there was anything in the add/remove programs that got downloaded from the installer but there isnt anything there, i also checked my program files and it didnt download anything there either, it seems as though it only downloaded the files to the desktop, which i already erased.
so to sum it up i started with 7.5gb then downloaded the game installer leaving me with 1.9gb then erased the game installer (never installed the actual game) and am now left with 3gb, .5 of which came from erasing my temp internet files. I'm thinking more pieces to the installer are somewhere on my hard drive but I have no idea where else to look, can anyone help?
