So yesterday i felt like my laptop has been running awfully slow. So i decided to defrag my laptop. After the defrag, things look better. BUT i just recently opened up "my computer" and saw that i have lost 28gb off my hard drive :eek: i don't know what happened, but i really want to know where the 28 gb went and want it back.

I don't know, even if the OP ran disk cleanup beforehand, 28 GB is more temp files than I've ever seen. If the compress old files option was set on, then 28 gigs is nothing.

Another idea is if the Recycle bin hadn't ever been emptied and was for the defrag, that can hold a tremendous amount of scraped files by default these days. I was pretty amazed one time when I emptied it on one system and it was 43 gigs.
