Vinnie played Creatures Fest and it was as bad as I imagined it would be. Ace made a few cracks about there not being a drummer. Lmao!

Almost shat myself when my C-drive suddenly showed only 2Gb of free space when it was 14Gb just a couple of days ago. I had no idea what was wrong since all the folders on the C-drive only added up to like 30Gb (and the full capacity is 55Gb). But luckily the most desperate solution helped and that is rebooting my PC a couple of times and now it's back to healthly 16Gb (since I hastily removed some unused programs). W7 masterrace still lives strong. :lol:

^ windirstat is your friend when trying to figure out where your disk space is going. Sometimes it doesn't go where you think it's going. Could be Windows using too much swap space. Could be Spotify gobbling up as much as it can get it's hands on for cache. Could be any number of things.

Did a clean out of a foreclosed home with a family member today for some cash. Ended up finding a bunch of old gold rings and a few loose diamonds. Dude has no living relatives and the stuff has been sitting there for years. Mine now lol.

Nice. I need to download that if run into the same problem again. :)

Edit: Holy shit, just got extra 11Gb because I deleted some file callled "hiberfil.sys". :O

hiberfil.sys

AFAIK that's where Windows saves data to reload when your PC wakes up from hibernation, so if you delete that, hibernation will be basically the same as a full shutdown. I haven't used Windows in years though, so I could be mistaken...

I live in California instead of bumfuck nowhere Missouri as of yesterday. No more coworkers yelling at me about "injecting aborted fetuses" (translation: COVID vacccine but NSFW and yelled at me at 8AM)
Their stupid, why would anyone waste a vaccine on an already aborted fetus? It's already dead. jk.

I vaguely remember you can disable hibernation and the file will go away on it's own without just deleting files and hoping for the best.

Cautious amateurs.

I'm a big fan of random deletes followed by reboots. Live a little! Do it without backups!
