Diminished Disk Space after running file encryption
Tue Jul 22 13:56:02 2003
I posted a few days ago. Problem was my disk space plumetted after
running GnuPG under WinPT (under Win 98SE) and remained very low (posted
a few days ago).
I have found where the disk space went - I think! As I mentioned I was
running GnuPG from WinPT which I invoked from a file management program
called Directory Opus (via a right click of the mouse - menu - select
WinPT options etc.). I have just found six files totalling 1,477 Mb in
the Opus program files directory all created on the day I started having
the problems with similarly prefixed names (to each other) and sizes
similar to the files that I was encrypting/trying to encrypt. I have
renamed these and run the Opus program with no ill effects. I do not
know why the Opus program itself did not list these files when I
searched (using it!) for files greater than 50Mb as the smallest is 160Mb.
Anyway I have now deleted them all and regained my spare capacity - and
enhanced as I was forced to clear out a load of other stuff to get some
Many thanks to all that tried to help - I'm still unsure why these files
were created and left on the system but at least I know where to look
from now on!
