Something does not work -> Restart Computer
Still doesn't work -> Restart again, just in case
Still?! -> Virus scan ->Restart (third time is a charm)
F*** this -> back up and reformat
(EDIT: Put stuff back on)
Wow How come i have 200 gigs of space I didn't have before.
No longer need to do thing that you reformatted for but your computer is awesome again.

I actually heard Windows 7 auto defrags whenever it is in sleep mode. And this happened to me because I realized that I only needed a few gigs of stuff on my computer. The rest was just old files and garbage that I never got around to deleting.

windows 7 has no such feature...You can scheduled a defrag like every other windows though..But i hope it works out for you either way

Perhaps it was a Pagefile that was eating up HD space. Usually it's set to match your RAM, but it can be tweaked higher or lower. Personally, I disabled mine since I never put my PC into sleep mode and, from my understanding, that's mainly what it's for since the partial power-down would otherwise wipe your active memory.

Randomly, I wish I could find out what eats my memory from time to time. Win7 lists 5 types in the manager (Free, In Use, Modified, Standby, Hardware) and the Modified memory steadily creeps up over time to where anywhere from 4 to 40 days after a boot I'll start getting low memory messages despite having few programs open or active. For example, right now I have 1845mb in use, 4762mb sucked up by modified, 1453mb in standby with 128mb free. Uptime's nearing 18 days. Checking processes shows nothing out of the ordinary, matching more along with the in use. I've tried process trimmers and memory cleaners to see if they'd help, but no go.

Not that this necessarily pertains to the topic, but it reminded me of a great program i've used. WinDirStat will search your harddrive(s) and tell you where your space is being used up. Ive found many things to delete like installers, and old games that didnt uninstall correctly.

Yeah, I've used that from time to time to trim old things I've forgotten about. Sadly, my issue's more related to RAM use and google isn't very helpful since all it says is modified memory is supposed to release over time, but if it isn't something is leaking somewhere with no real explanation how to find a leak since my task manager isn't showing anything out of the ordinary.

There's another program I use called Glary Utilities, that has the same feature, it's great.
