random BSOD, restarts for the past 2 months

Q: random BSOD, restarts for the past 2 months

Hey everybody,
I've been getting system crashes and restarts for the past two months. It seems to be completely random and I never use any programs that are too intensive - at most photoshop. In the first day it happened, it restarted 5 times within half an hour. This was helped by me doing a system restore. Still had the problem but it was around once a day. After talking to HP support a few days ago and doing that the guy told me to do, it got waaay worse and I restored it again. It's still worse than before but slightly better.
Anyway, I have no idea what I should do. Please help!

HP p6330f refurb
Windows 7 x64 OEM,
Intel Core i3 530, 2.93 Ghz
age - about 3 months.

Attached is the BSOD .rar and the blue screen error

Preferred Solution: random BSOD, restarts for the past 2 months

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I suspect ZoneAlarm is the cause here. Please remove it with with this tool: http://download.zonealarm.com/bin/fr...cpes_clean.exe

Reset the Windows Firewall. Open an elevated command prompt and enter netsh advfirewall reset.

I believe CCleaner is deleting your memory dumps. Please disable it for now, until you determine the BSODs have stopped.

Hello all,

Over the past 6 months or so I have been getting random BSODs with no obvious symptoms of what is causing them.

They started happening last September after I got back from the Summer. To begin with I tried to diagnose the problem following various guides to try and work out what could be causing them. I did the following:
Reg check
Driver Verifier
Updated Drivers
Checked for any physical damage on hardware
Tried restoring

No matter what I did I could not either fix the problem or find the cause of the problem. The main reason for this was the "ntoskrnl.exe+XXXXX" would appear each time on each crash, and searching online I could not find a definitive reason or answer to the crashes.

So I decided in the meantime to live with the possible chance that I would BSOD every now and then. For the most part this was fine as they became less frequent.

Then came today. I've had 3 BSOD in one day and now its starting to irritate me. Knowing that my previous efforts to try and find a solution were to no results, I just don't know what to do. I'm getting the point that I might just rip out all my hardware and start fresh, but that won't be for another 3 months or so.

So here are the .dmps from September till now. Looking at them in BlueScreenView the Caused Driver and Address are all different, there are some common patterns such as the "Qualcomm Atheros Driver" I did update this but ended up making the problem worse, as it made m... Read more

Hi there this is my first post on these forums so apologies if I'm not too familiar with the layout. I'm not too computer savy so if anyone could try simplify any answers/solutions that would be great. Basically the problem is for the past few months around start up of windows 7 I was getting freezes, BSOD errors (in particular IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and Page_fault_in_non_paged_area being the main ones) and my pc would be in a continuous loop of booting then freezing or shutting down and I couldn't get the pc to work. I thought the problem could be corrupted windows files so I reinstalled windows onto my computer using the isntallation disk and installed drivers and all was working fine for around 4 days. Each day my windows would have importaint updates so I installed them when prompted. One day I all of a sudden started getting the same errors I got before, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGEED_AREA and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and no new software had been installed at this point. I have tested ram and my hard drive with no errors showing although when looking at properties of my computer I have 20GB of ram (16GB Available) not sure if this has anything to do with it (2 x 8 GB sticks 1 X 4 GB stick). Hopefully you guys can help me out and prevent me shelling out on a new rig. Thank you, Conor .

I have a HP pavilion a720n desktop. Runs very well for its age and has had no previous issues. Well for months now I have had random freezing that varies. It could have 2-3 times a day or not happen for a couple days or be gone for a week. I also have random restarts. I will be doing something on my computer such as web browsing or watching a video and all the sudden my computer reboots out of nowhere. It usually only does this a couple times a week. I've taken it to several places and they check my hardware check for viruses everything was fine last time they checked and it still hasn't gotten better. I also did a fresh install of XP about 3 months ago and it was fine for maybe.. 3 weeks? I am getting very annoyed with this and I cannot figure it out! If anyone can please help me it would be greatly appreciated! Thank-you!
***Also at any given time it says I have 220-440mb available physical memory out of my 1GB. I'm not sure what that means and the number changes a lot can this have anything to do with it? I don't even have a lot of programs on my computer so why is this number so low?

A:Freezing and random restarts for months now cant figure it out! Can someone please help?

FWIW: IMO, the numbers/stats you mention re RAM...are not useful. What's more important is how the system functions.Restarts can be caused by a number of things.

OS: Win 8 pro

System: x64

Originally, there was no windows in my laptop since I bought the DOS version. But the first OS that I installed was win 8 pro and I switched back to win 7 ultimate at some time and finally switched back to win 8 pro. Both are full retail version.

Age of system: 8 months

Age of installed OS : 1 month

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @2.4GHz (Quadcore but my dxdiag says that I have 8CPUs?)

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M

MotherBoard: I tried with CPU-z but it says invalid in motherboard field. So I googled and found out that I can use cmd to find it. Below is some command that I type through google. Not sure which one is my motherboard model.

Power Supply: Lenovo 19.5v == 6.15A

System Manufacturer : Lenovo

I've been getting BSOD since early october. I already tried to use system restore back to previous month before I got BSOD and still getting it.
I've tried to re install windows several times and still get this BSOD.
There was a time I was just freshly installed the windows and in the middle of installing drivers of my laptop and I got BSOD.
I noticed I only get BSOD if I connect to the internet, specifically while browsing or downloading. I never get BSOD while being offline.
So here I am, finally given up on how to solve this and search for help from expert.

Thanks in advance for the input.
Apologize if I happen to miss some details.

A:BSOD out of no where 3rd time past 2 months.

Don't bother checking for solutions. Can't remember a time that has actually worked for me. I am also going to ignore the codes for the moment as they do not enjoy telling the exact issue at hand.

1. What are you doing when the BSOD pops up? You say you keep it in sleep mode, etc?

2. It is a very rare issue. Give us your computer specs (I recommend Speccy for a more thorough deluge of information).

3. Toss us a small list of your most used programs (that you actually have to open yourself) and any consistent programs such as Anti-Spyware and Anti-Virus.

4. There is a chance you do have a minor (or very sneaky) virus on your computer causing the issue. Run a thorough virus scan via Avast or maybe Avira (free-versions) and nab yourself Comodo (free again) while you are at it.

5. Finally (and last on the list) how often do you actually turn off your computer? What are your core temperatures? When was the last time you applied Thermal? Can you cook an egg on the darn thing? Let us know.

Hi -

Probable issues with RAM are a likely cause.

Run memtest86+ - http://www.techsupportforum.com/2863029-post5.html

Before you run memtest86+. . . .

- remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120

- Run the Driver Verifier -- http://www.sysnative.com/0x1/Driver_Verifier.htm

I see several old drivers in the dumps. If BSODs are software related, D/V can help find the culprit.

Regards. . .

A:Daily-ish BSOD past few months :(

One of your dumpfiles blames Probably caused by : dxgmms1.sys ( dxgmms1!VIDMM_SEGMENT::MarkResourcesForEviction+cf ).
Driver Description: DirectX Graphics MMS./ this is probably related to your videocards and you mentioned that the bsods mostly happens when gaming.

In your msinfo32 report i found:

<Device><![CDATA[Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600]]></Device>
<Error_Code><![CDATA[This device is disabled.]]></Error_Code>


Why is this device disabled did you have problems with it?
How did you disabled it, through device manager or did you disabled it in your Biossettings?.
Your Logitech G710 keyboard drivers are outdated(2009), please update the latest drivers from here Support + Downloads: G710 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Logitech and also update the drivers(2012) for your Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910.

Please also update your Intel Watchdog Timer driver(2010), it is (probably) part of the intel mangement engine.
Check the support/driver downloadsite of your OEM model or system(mainboard) for the latest windows 8.1 driver here GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1150 - GA-Z87X-D3H (rev. 1.x).
And please also update all the other drivers to the latest version.

I'm throwing in the towel.
I have received numerous BSOD's over the past 8 months or so. They reference different errors, but most are memory related. The last one (today) was saying that I was attempting to execute non-executable memory.

I have not had a lot of time to sit and fix the issue. I finally decided to come here and get help.

I am attaching the required zip files.
By the way, this happens on all 4 accounts on the computer, not just admin, etc.
The dump files are processed from my personal account, which is also the admin account.
Do I need to attach the zip files from every profile on the host?

Like the topic title says my Windows 7 computer has been getting Blue Screens on and off for a while now.  This is a fairly recent computer that I built at the start of last year.  I don't know how much help this information would be but at the start of this year I installed a new 2TB hard drive, and made a switch from WIFI to Ethernet, and sometime after that the BSODs started happening.  I bring up the Ethernet bit because one of the BSODs happened after I accidentally knocked out the Ethernet cable.
I decided to stop putting it off after i got two Blue Screens within the same hour today.
I've attached the minidump files down below.

Since about 7 months back I've been experiencing a BSOD on my Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5529 laptop. It would happen upon logging into my account and would only stop if I booted up in safe mode. Other people use the computer too so I can't be quite sure what may have caused it but since this week it has actually booted up twice, including now, without being in safe mode and hasn't blue screened. The BOSD always returns though so I'm sure this time will be no different. I was wondering if anyone could help me resolve this issue as I would love to be able to use this laptop again. Any help is greatly appreciated.

About 1 year prior to this I started experiencing very slow performance; startup and logon would average between 6 to 7 minutes. So, in May of this year, I added more memory, increased from 8GB to 16GB, and I added an additional internal hard drive and moved most of my media files to it, so the original hard drive contains only windows, software and my document files. I also, removed Norton Internet Security and replaced with Windows Security Essential. When I started experiencing BSODs I ran mem86tst, but it did not turn up any problems. Also, I ran Tweakbit PCcleaner which cleaned up my registry. I also ran Tweakbit Driver updater which recommend a bunch of driver updates, but I was reluctant to make that many changes so I updated only my graphics card.

I have been getting random restarts and BSOD for 2 months, but in the last 2 weeks it has been fine. It just started again today and this time i decided to post it up. I have run memory diognostics tools and so problems there.

It restarts very randomly so i cant even be specific, however i have deleted previous(very old) dump files but i do have some of the recent ones.

Thanks for any help

A:Many BSOD and restarts for 2 months

Your dumps bugcheck:
0x50 = This indicates that invalid system memory has been referenced.
0x3b = This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.
0xa = This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.
0x7f_8 = indicates that the Intel CPU generated a trap and the kernel failed to catch this trap.
Start with remove Avast and replace it with MSE.
Reinstall your VLC player since there are lot errors reported on WER. (update to newer version if any).

Update these drivers:
adfs.SYS --> adobe software
nvhda64v.sys --> nVidia HDMI Audio Device (nForce chipset driver)
Rt64win7.sys --> Realtek NIC

If the problem persist , test your RAM with memtest86 at least 7 passes.

Three days ago my water cooling failed (got up to 77C while gaming is when I noticed the problem as my CPU should not go over 62C). I decided to install an aftermarket heatsink instead of a new water cooling system ,and add a few more fans just to make sure my whole motherboard was getting plenty of air flow. I installed a Cool Mater Hyper Plus 212 heatsink. I followed the instructions, and looked at a few installation videos on my phone just to be sure. I'm pretty positive everything was done correctly including the thermal paste as my system has not gone over 45C while gaming even playing games on Ultra settings.

I got one BSOD late last night, after about 6 hours of it being on but no other problems after that. Today however I have been having BSOD issues the entire time at random times from just 5 minutes up to 2 and a half hours between BSODs. They have ranged from: NTSF_FILE_SYSTEM, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

I have researched the errors on google all day and tried fixes for each one such as running memory diagnostic tool, deleting the old page info from memory and creating a new one, deleted all of my video drivers and reinstalled them, and I've even opened my case to make sure all my memory and cards are plugged in all the way.

These are the errors that BlueScreenView gave me:

I bought a new computer a few months ago, it never worked properly and even after i sent it back to the shop multiple times it has never been properly fixed. The BSOD happen at random times, sometimes it will go two weeks without issues and other times it will crash 2 or 3 times in one night. I've looked through a few forums to try and find a solution but i've had no luck, i've given up trying to solve it myself as i have no idea what could be wrong with it at this point.

Is all the information you need attached in the zip?

Thanks in advanced.

EDIT: 12/24/2010 - SOLVED!

Hey guys!, I'm posting here cause I'm really desperate. For 6 months I've been getting random BSOD, some of them I already solved by changing my old memory stick. When I thought it was ok, more BSOD... I really don't know what to do anymore, I already tested my news memory sticks with memtest and tried to verify my drivers with verifier, please help me to solve this, I'm getting mad, cause I think I tried everything...
some of the BSOD that I've got are:
*pfn_list_corrupt - solved changing my older mem stick (2 months ago)
*memory management - appeared after I update my windows, but I undo this update and it didn't happened ultil now (1 week)
*PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA "STOP: 0x00000050" - I think I solved this creating a new pagefile in another HD, after that it didn't happened until now (2 days)
*SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION "0x0000003b" - this one started a month ago, but it's very random, it can happen one time a week or even a month :S, but still a problem for me

here is my minidump file of the last BSOD (SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION"0x0000003b")

Remove Alcohol/Daemon software and uninstall its driver (sptd.sys) with this tools --> DuplexSecure - Downloads
Because sptd.sys have some issue with Windows 7 and for alternative software you may use MagicISO.

Then while troubleshoot your problem, it's better to remove Avira and replace it with MSE. You may go back to Avira after the BSOD gone but that's not recommended by me.

Update these drivers:

BS_I2cIo.sys Sun Jun 15 23:45:18 2008 --> BIOSTAR I2C I/O driver

Both of these were caused by memory management. Your friends Image of win 7 I think is suspect as that standard MS symbols are wrong for the critical system files.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Over the past 3-4 months my computer has been having some bad crash issues. I need help determining whether the issue is because of overheating due to having to use my brothers oldstock cooler (which has very little thermal compound on it) or if the problem is driver related.

It all started when I was forced to replace my cpu cooler as it was broken. The only option I had (tight for money) was to use my brothers old stock cpu cooler. It had a little bit of thermal paste on it so I didn't feel like it would be much of an issue. While I was playing CS:GO suddenly my computer crashes, sometimes the sound would loop and sometimes I would get a BSOD. I have read countless forum posts about other people with similar problems but I have had no luck so far. The crashing seemed to become more and more frequent, and eventually the only way I could run my computer consistently without crashes was if I used the integrated graphics to hopefully bottleneck the cpu, and I also changed power plan to power saver. Doing this seemed to have helped - although I do still get crashes. My cpu would be running at 70-80 degrees IDLE. I cleaned a hell of a load of dust out of the cooler and running with integrated graphics/power saver it would run at 30 degrees idle. Despite this, I was still getting crashes, and every now and again I would get a BSOD. Some of the errors I have had include;
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (or something)
there are 3-4 more different errors I have had but... Read more

Hello, as the title says I have been have random BSOD's recently for the past two months and, for the 1st time, I feel unable to fix this problem myself and am in desperate need of help.

My system is a new build and has been fine since its construction at Christmas [by myself] until recently. For the past two months the system will randomly crash to a blue screen [usually with the screen going all..fuzzy].

I have ran MemTest for a few hours: O errors found.
I have tried updating numerous drivers [I still think this is the issue] to no avail.
I have tried using the windows debugger but I cant get it to stop telling me im using the wrong symbols.
I have ran 'WhoCrashed' and it just states its a ntoskrnl error.
Also scanned for HD errors and came up with nothing.

I am gutted at this and would be very grateful for your help.

ok, I am new to this forum and I am pretty frustrated with my desktop. Its one I built a couple years ago and its given me no problems...until the last few months. I had not (before it began happening) installed any new hardware to the system. It just would randomly blue screen. Some times I would get a few hours in, sometimes it would get as far as the desktop and go right into a BS. Really pretty random.
In the course of my troubleshooting, i ran memtest, which produced no errors. I have ran disk check, ran SFC, etc. I saw in my BIOS that my CPU temp was running a bit on the high side so I replaced my heat sink and put new thermal compound down. That helped my temps enormously but still getting random BS. I replaced the video card with a new one, I replaced the RAM with new...and it still occurs. Like I said though, absolutely random. I was just on the PC for two hours or so, walked away to shower, and came back to BS. This time i got a critiocal object termination error, which was new. Usually its a IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error or a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA or a KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED error.

Anyways, I don't have it set to overwrite the dump files, since its seemingly different every time...

I attached my zip file, per the instructions (nice little program by the way, to whomever wrote that). I hope the upload of the file worked ok.

Any help you could give would be appreciated...

I've been getting these at random times, it'll do it no matter what programs I'm running. I use chrome, firefox, and SR ware iron for browsers. trillian for messaging. sometimes have open excel. and always have my sticky note up. i don't have a firewall or antivirus installed, as i'm pretty confident in my ability to not get viruses (i've had this system almost a year with no problems) but i do run housecall every couple months to be sure. i also ran a malware detector yesterday and it came up clear.
i did a system restore to the 14th, when i had installed the new java upgrade (java 7, update 17) and didn't solve the problem. i did a system restore to the 7th (automatic restore point) and didn't get the BSOD for about 12 hours so i thought it was fixed. now it's back.
at one point yesterday, i couldn't even boot windows without the BSOD - would just give me a continuous loop of "loading" "bsod" and options to start normally or run startup repair (which didn't help)
i used the SF diagnostic tool and attached the zip as instructed.

thanks for any help you can give!

Over the past few weeks my PC has started to BSOD randomly. Before I go through and test RAM and HDD, update drivers etc I'd appreciate if someone would have a look at the minidump file attached.

This is really starting to bug me

Thanks so much.

This is a newish computer (Built in July 2009) and up until a few days ago I haven't had any issues with it. For whatever reason though, while I was playing the Starcraft 2 beta, it crashed to BSOD and had to restart. The event viewer was largely unhelpful in figuring out the problem, so I went ahead and ran a few utilities to make sure my computer is running as well as I think it could be (CCleaner, Spybot, etc., just to get rid of junk). All seemed fine until last night when I went to shut down my computer and it blue screened again, with once again an unhelpful event file entry.

I only have the minidump from last night's crash (when I shut down my system), as when I ran the utilities to clean up my comp the minidump from the first crash was deleted. Hopefully someone can help me out with this... Your time is much appreciated.

A:BSOD over past few days at random times

This is the second Starcraft2 issue I've seen today - I wonder if there's an issue with the beta? I'd check their forums to see if it's the problem.

BUT there is a driver on your system that's known to cause BSOD's - so I'd suggest that you replace the ASACPI.SYS driver (dated from 2005) with the most recent one available for your system from the Asus website ( ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt ). It'll be listed under the Utilities section and is known as the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit" .

The memory dump points to a memory corruption as the issue - so I'd try this free memory test just to rule that out: Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link).

More info on the STOP 0x7E error here: BSOD Index (Please note the "Usual causes" listed at the top of that section).

Beyond that, I'd wait and see if there were further BSOD's. If so, post the memory dump files and we'll move on from there.

Summary of the BSOD:

Built by: 7600.16539.amd64fre.win7_gdr.100226-1909

Hi all. My Acer Aspire V3-571G laptop has been suffering from multiple BSOD crashes recently. Some observations:

- The laptop will often go for days without crashing, but then crash multiple times within minutes.

- Lots of crashes do not generate dump files and simply restart the computer or display glitched graphics and freeze

- BSOD crashes are often preempted by glitched graphics displaying on the screen briefly.

- BSOD crashes often, but not always, happen after slightly adjusting the position of the laptop

- BSODs most often happen when browsing the web (i.e. in Chrome) but have also happened while playing games and shortly after booting.

- I ran chkdsk last night on the laptop. It stayed at 29% forever then went straight to 100% and then the computer suffered a BSOD on the login screen almost immediately afterwards.

- I ran memtest86+ for one pass without any errors earlier (I'll go for longer if advised)

- BSOD error codes are broken down as follows:
Often memory_corruption or the NT kernel are blamed for the BSOD's in Windbg (there was one caused by a Norton driver, one by an Atheros Wireless Network Driver, according to WinDbg)

OS: Windows 8.1 x64. Windows 8 was initially installed and then w... Read more

It seems like issue with one of the drivers, have you recently added/changed any hardware on your laptop?
Also may I know which Norton product/version are you running?

So I started playing TF2 again recently, so I've been using my brother's Xornet mouse. However, since I started using it, it would occasionally just stop working. Also, I've been getting BSOD screens that say "BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER" (I didn't have enough time to write down all the other information on that screen, but I changed the settings so it doesn't automatically restart, so I should have them if it happens again). The BSODs seem to happen at completely random times, except for one thing: they are always preceded by random "USB unplug noises" (i.e. the "da-dun" sound that you hear when you unplug a USB device). These noises can start happening up to 30 minutes before the BSOD, and they seem to happen at random times anywhere from 2 seconds to 3 minutes apart.

I followed some advice from another forum that said to uninstall your USB drivers, reboot, and allow windows to reinstall them. I did, and everything seemed to be going fine for awhile, but after using my mouse for a couple of minutes, it started happening again, and I got the BSOD. I don't know if the mouse is the cause or just coincidence.

This seems to happen whether or not I have USB devices plugged in. Dump file attached.

A:BSOD at random times for past 2 days, BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER

Oh snap: As soon as I posted this, windows popped up these windows (see attached pic). I currently have no devices plugged in to any USB ports.

I have no idea what any of this means.

Hey SevenForums.

I've had my system just comming upto 12 months now and this is the first time ive experienced a BSOD. Since the 18th January ive had 2 BSOD's a day. The first time I noticed it I was playing music with WMP, then a couple where from browsing the internet with Firefox, and the most recent one was when I was copying some files to a CD with Nero.

Not sure what has caused the problem either. The only recent thing I can think of is when I plugged in a 3.5mm jack into my Soundcard for Line-Input, thats about it.

Included is the .zip recomended by the sticky, below is a minidump i get when Windows recovers.

A:Hello everybody for the past two months i been having problem with my laptop

I'm not sure what you mean by this?
What is the make and model of your computer? You may have a Recovery Partition on your computer. If you start up your computer, you may have a quick message over the logo that says Press (key) to Enter Recovery, sometimes this is F11. If so, this will set your computer back to Factory Defaults. This will remove all personal data, so backup first.
If you do not have a recovery partition, then read up on the link in my signature PC Running Slow? And try those things.

On my C: Drive that is SSD I used to have around 38GB free (was even 42GB but after accidental turning the windows update on I lost to 38GB). Since I stayed at 38GB without wasting space with silly windows updates (turned off ofc) and I installed only tiny programs, I don't see how did I become from 38GB to 23GB of free space?? I may have searched files through 15K photos a month ago if such thing ever reduces disk space (such as indexing) but I checked one windows.ecb (or something like that) file was only 133MB, I don't see where all the space got lost?? I was installing a few (3-4) small programs that when I saw are of no use to me - uninstalled. I have run disk cleanup many times and I don't see where all that space went?

I may have accidently enabled 'Windows 7 file recovery' but I made sure to disable this trash immediately, meaning I do not have any folders on the disk space that would take so much memory.

I know that sometimes if you delete a lot of files like thousands of files, 20GB + of space, the space doesn't restore immediately (whenever it comes from many deleted files) but for that reason I deleted files from removable disk, to not get any traces on the main HDD.

Is there any tool to check over the months, how your free space got lowered, I could then see on a graph if the drop of space got sudden or not, to identify what could have caused it. And I dislike using any 3rd party 'cleaners' or whatever software

A:Lost 15 GB over the past months for nothing.. realized now

You can set how much space is used for System Restore, check and see how much space is allotted and how much percent wise is being used.

Check it here:
