my thinkpad with 300gb HD is 98% full and I got 10gb a week ago using disc clean up tool, and 4gb last night, not much time left at that rate. I do not have windows 7pro discs to allow wipe and reinstall. the trash is empty, there are no photos, videos, or music to speak of. How can I see what is hogging all the HD and how to delete it? Look forward to a reply.
