Hi. The last week or so I had noticed my C drive filling up at an alarming rate. Each time I turned on my computer, there would be less available space on the drive. Once in a while, if I restarted, it would free up a few MBs, but the general trend was that the drive was becoming more full. Finally, last night, I used Partition Manager to allocate more space to C drive from the D drive. (I had forgotten that repartitioning would render the Novo button useless - is there any way to get back its functionality? Or to get a disk with Windows on it?) I added 10 more gigs to C drive. I then defragged with PerfectDisk, uninstalled a couple programs I didn't need, and used the Windows Disk Cleanup utility. I had 9.75 gigs available on C drive after all this. I restarted this morning, and now I only have 8.09 gb free. It's great to have more space available on C drive, but the contents of C drive do not seem to be large enough to be taking up 30 gb of space, and the fact that the drive is constantly growing in size for no apparent reason is definitely concerning me. I tried the options listed in the first post (except the hibernation one, since I use the hibernate feature), but none of them really made a difference.
Does anyone have any idea as to what might be causing the problem? I do not think I have a virus - I am running Sophos and SpySweeper and did a sweep of both this morning.

Questions to skripatch:
I purchased Y530 with larger C and smaller D. I want to change the size ot those partitions. So:
1. I made disc recovery with original settings.
2. Now I want change partitions.
3. When I will do it, restoring from partition recovery will be disabled but it will be able to restore the system from disc recovery which I was made in step one. Am I right?
4. Preparing the next disc recovery just after repartitioning and using that disc in the future provides me the sizes of both partitions which existed while creating disc recovery. Am I right? What about the data on partition C and D in such situation ?
But using previous disc recovery created in step one, will bring me back to the original size of partitions and will erase all data from C and D ?
