    Hi All,

    Looking at the Vista Ultimate x64 it took already 45.9 GB while Windows is
    16.8 gb and the rest of the other folders are 5gb. Where are the rest of the
    files?

    For instant when Vista does and a Window update where does it hide the older
    files?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Probably shadow copy files which you may not be able to see.
    Google is your friend, so is Windows Help & Support...

  3. It could be Restore points. It could also be because you have Hibernation
    enabled. Hibernation uses hard drive space that is equal to the amount of
    RAM you have. Could be temp files. There are various things it could be.
    Till you delete temp files and things like that we wont know for sure what
    it is.
