    Hi,

    Today I used Spacemonger to display the contents of my C drive which is rapidly filling up. I was horrified to see that almost 100Gb of space was assigned to useless pgbleach files - each about 1Gb in size. These are located on the root drive. I was able to delete about half of them freeing up a useful 50Gb but cannot get rid of the rest.

    How can I achieve that, please?

    Many thanks

    Uninstall Spacemonger and see if the files are removed. If they are still there are uninstalling it, use either MoveOnBoot or Unlocker to get rid of them.

    I use and recommend Treesize Free for checking drive space...

    Thanks Arctos.

    When I uninstalled and reinstalled Spacemonger the pgbleach files had vanished as if by magic.

    Problem solved! :)
