How can I recover lost disk space in Windows 7?

Svetlio September 25, 2011

After an installation, I lost half of my memory in disk D. I looked in disk management, but there is nothing.

How can I recover all of my free space in D when it’s gone and is not in C? I don’t undestand what happened! I’m with Windows 7.

    seems strange but not unusual .

    heres what you can try ....

    >First of all , run a Defragmenter Tool . Avoid the Default Windows tool , 
    you can use Auslogics (
    or if you are an advanced user and willing to pay for a software , try Ultimate Defrag or Perfect Disk Pro . you can also go for there Trial Versions . just use it during the trial and then uninstall . 
    >Run a system cleaner utility . Run the default windows system cleaner and then run the CCleaner (

    >Now run the CCleaner again . and go to the section where it says Utilities , and under utilities go to section System Restore .
    now see , how many system restore points are there . 
    if too many , they might also be eating up the disk space .
    delete the unnecessary and keep only which you want .

    >restart and see if some thing worked .

    >try running a disk analyser and see for what all is going in the disk esp pertaining to segments and sectors . you can use this tool -- EAseus Partition Master . just download the Home Free Version (

    >as a last resort , run the Gparted Live utility .
    its one the most powerful and efficient Disk Partition Editors .
    you will find all the instructions and guide on creating a Live USB or CD and how to use .here --
