    Hi folks
    I have just lost about 4Gb of hard-drive space and I don't know why!
    Just prior to this I had burned a DVD using Nero 7 Startsmart. The file copied where AVI & Nero recode files.
    I'd burned them as Data files as nero wouldn't let me copy them 'as they were' 5 onto one 4.7G DVDR.
    Being new to Nero (and computing generally) I am still finding out what it Will do. I realised from this that nero apparently recodes AVI files to normal dvd file to copy to a 4.7G disc. I started to copy one of these movies to a disc for a friend but wanted to watch another movie that was on my H/drive. The system crashed and I aborted the burn process. It was after watching my movie that I noticed I was about 4G down on free space. This is annoying as there is now only about 2G left on my C drive.
    I've tried to find the offending data files but without success.

    Can anyone give me any leads to regain my lost 4G of free space?

      I think you answered your own question.

      Nero copies to the HDD before burning the DVD.

      Since your computer crashed before the burn operation was complete, Nero did not have a chance to delete the intermediate files or ask you if you wanted to delete them.
