    Something eating my HD

    I just noticed (I must have been blind) that there is a file on my HD size 120GB. Let me state that this pc is used to surf and email, that's it.
    The file is arc01031119255971 made 3-1-11 and is 123GB in size, upon opening it there is diff101311203218995 which 76.7GB

    arc010311192559979.PBF 98KB
    arc010311192559979 0000pooo 3.9GB
    Followed by 001 thru 090 each 3.9GB made the same day at five minute intervals. When I check properties, it identifies nothing and when I ask for previous versions I get more, of the same file each 3.9, even made today.
    I can't identify it and it seems to be slowly using up my 266GB HD, only 75GB left.
    Needless to say I need some help. I will send any further info you may require to help you in helping with this problem.

    Probably should have only 60-70GB on this HD

    Do you have Paragon Drive Backup installed?

    Where exactly is the file located, under which directory.

    The ".PBF" File Extension is from Paragon (backup file).

    For "arc010311192559979 0000pooo", ensure explorer is able to see the hidden file extentions.

    My thanks to all.....

    Thanks for the responses, you guys are great. Yes it was "Paragon Back up and Recovery". Evidently when I configured it I screwed up. I have deleted Paragon and all the 123GB of backups and have reclaimed all my free space. Once again thanks to all...Stan
