Pc Issue Using Ty's Editor

Recommended Posts

I was having aissue with xp machine running out of space and space was just disappearing. I thought I had a virus as all information I was getting from support forums poinnted to that.

I ran full scans using malwarebytes-security esstionals and spybot but all showed nothing,

I then ran them is safe mode and malware picked up 4 items which were removed. I even tried to use macfee tools for rootkits and stinger and ran other virus scans from MS and kapervisy and still nothing found.

I then ralized the machine was running fast while I was making changes to my season files using the editor, so I went to check the size and it went down from 484 mg to 3 and was telling me disk was full.

I was really stuck but then I tried something I went into a folder that was created when editor was installed and saw many backup files in there and the folder size was 13 gigs.

I then remembered that there wasa option in the editor off to the left that says dele backups but I did not know what this was for.

I copied all the files to a external hard drive in case and then pressed delete backups and now have 13 gigs back and no more issues. I had a whole year of backups I did not know was getting created and taking up space.

Did anyone have this issue before and are those files needed or can then just be cleaned up?
