I have a Vista HomePremium box here that has been exhibiting very strange behavior. All of it's free hard drive space has been disappearing. It has a 200 GB drive that was only 1/4 full, and starting a month or so ago it began filling up rapidly.
Recently I went to install something and found that the hard drive was completely full. I deleted about a gig of data, and found that that space was GONE in only a few minutes.
When I fired up WinDirStat, I found that the report queue in Windows/WER was taking up 171 GB!!! 99% of those files were created since the middle of last month.
I'm looking for an explanation of why this is happening and how to stop it. I can copy some of the log file info here if necessary, but the fact that they are being created so quickly and taking up so much space is just outrageous. Although I am fluent in XP, Vista is kinda new to me. Has anyone seen this before? Any ideas?
