Re: Losing a bit of free space on HDD day by day... Is this related to daily full scans?

So you think it is fair to say I am just worrying about nothing?

It just feels weird that this time I could not get the space back, but before I could.

I think you are over-concerned with it, but continue to do normal maintenance.  Windows itself actually clears out things from time to time withoiut intervention anyway.

I am thinking Windows is being stupid now.

I let Windows defrag and my space fell to 186.9. Windows said I have less space after defraging. Also, each time I try to remove shadow copies it goes down 0.01.

Re: Losing a bit of free space on HDD day by day... Is this related to daily full scans?

Well defrag only moves files around to make them easier to access and it possibly broke up areas of free space.   Who knows?   I use a paid defragger as they have more options on how to defrag.

Re: Losing a bit of free space on HDD day by day... Is this related to daily full scans?

I had 183.51 before doing a McAfee scan and a Malwarebytes can, afterwards I got down to 183.39. Looks like the scans are causing this.
