Been monitoring this the past few days when I first noticed it, at the moment this is only affecting my boot drive, it went down by 2GB a day over the past two days.

Today I downloaded some gaming videos to test this and even though I only downloaded about 700MB of video, my drive space has gone down by almost 30GB :shock:

I have ran several virus checks just to be sure and they have all come up with nothing, has anyone else encountered this problem before? I must admit it's very worrying, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Download and run WinDirStat. It should show you what's taking up all the space

I would place bets on the Hiberfil.sys file, but you need WinDirStat to confirm this.

Thanks for that program, did the trick :D I got some new video editing software and that was the problem, was saving backups of every project I ever did.
