    hundreds of thousands of files, oh my

    Hi,

    I noticed that I now have over 600,000 files that seems like a bit much. Is there anyway I can create a report of all my directories/folders and list the number of files in each folder?

    Any suggestions for how to clean this mess up???

    I know this sounds stupid but what kind of files are they. Music, program, data, movies?

    Well actually i might suggest WinRAR Or WinZip and you can archive yourfiles. Which will make them some what smaller and you can catagorize them as you please. But thats just my opinion.

    When you make the archive as i stated above you can name it what or want or give it a name according to the number of files in it.

    WinRAR: http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm
    Winzip:http://www.winzip.com/downwzeval.htm, Download the evaluation version its FREE

    Here's some shareware you could try.. http://www.soft32.com/download_8397.html. I've used it before and it's pretty helpful showing you which files are taking up all your hard drive space.

    For a quick and dirty listing, run a Command Prompt and type (for the C: drive, change for other drives) : DIR C:\ /S /A > files.txt

    This will produce a (large) file called files.txt which can be viewed in a text editor or word processor and will list what files exist in which folders, with total at the end, but I don't recall for sure if there's anything hidden in XP that this won't reveal.

    And here's another freeware reporting program:

    ^^ Free directory printing/listing tool, I use it quite often and havent had any problems with it, useful when you burn alot of data to a dvd and can easily print out a content page for it.

    Any idea why you have so many files? where are you looking to see 600,000 files?

    For all the browsers you have installed, remember to Clean Up temporary files

    also do a Disk Clean: Start-->Programs-->Accessories-->SystemTools-->DiskCleanup

    When I run norton to do a scan it says it scanned over 600,000 files. I don't think the problem is the temp files but I'll check. What I notice is that my system volume information is over 99 gigs. Can I safely remove it? I thought it was used for the restore function in xp but I find that 90% of the time you can't restore. I would like to delete it and start over. any suggestions of how to do that>

    Simply right click on My Computer, Go to System Restore, put a check in the Turn Off System Restore, and click OK. Reboot and then go back and uncheck the turn off system restore.
    It's not the computers that keep having problems, it's the users!!

    Wow! Lots o' files there! How big is your hard drive, anyway? Have you just tried looking at the properties of some folders to see how large they are? And have you run any spyware removal tools like Ad Aware SE Personal, Spybot Search & Destroy, etc? I'm curious because some current adware can write 2 or 3 GB worth of files to your machine, and create thousands of infected small files such as .dll files, along with thousands of registry entries. NAV is just not that good a tool for adware/spyware removal, and often misses things that should be removed and flags things that are unimportant.

    Just to give you a reference point, one of my home machines has 4 or 5 of my larger games on it (1 to 6 GB each), 30 or so kid games (Zoo Tycoon, Putt-Putt, Pajama Sam, etc), lots of software, 4 or 5 hours of video, etc. All in all my 120 GB drive is about 57% full, and I have around 257,000 files on it.

    I think I would run malware scans (if you haven't) before anything else. Update the software before you scan. Be sure System Restore is turned off before scanning, and if things still seem weird, shut the machine down for at least thirty seconds, boot in Safe Mode, and re-scan.

    definitely not normal... start with an online virus scan....
    Never, ever approach a computer saying or even thinking "I will just do this quickly."

    I've run both norton and ms spyware scans and also ran the everest program you mentioned. the scans came up clean. Here's the output from everest: What's next?

    Well I tried to send you the everst report but its 183000 kb and I can only put 10,000 on the message. Is there anything in particular that you would like to see?
