I have a HP Pavilion Home PC with Windows 8 Consumer Preview x64 with 3GB RAM. Recently, the C: Drive space has been filling automatically. Until yesterday I had nearly 20GB, and I got 0KB today. I do not put anything on my C: Drive because it is partitioned into C:, D: and E: with C: having 49GB, 156GB and 102GB respectively. I ran an antivirus scan with Kaspersky 2013, but no viruses. I also ran the Disk Cleanup and moved some heavy files, but the space keeps filling up. Please help me. Thank You.

I think Kaspersky is making that problem. Kaspersky even makes such problem with windows XP.

Get a program like SPACESNIFFER or WINDIRSTAT, run them and look for the LARGE file, more than likely able to figure out who and where it is happening.
