    Hi, I recently installed Ultradefrag 6.0.2 and let it run a complete optimization over night.
    The next day I found out I had from previous 800GB of a 3TB disk only 12GB free space left.
    UD has bloated my system volume information up to over 700GB.
    I have no clue how to undo this and get my disk space back.

    Why would UD do this??? This was my first and last use of UD ever.

     
    • Hello,

      When the program moved files on the disk Windows decided to make
      shadow copies due to some reason. Usually it doesn't happen, but in
      some rare cases it does. To clean up your system you should use the
      cleanmgr tool included in Windows (at least in XP and earlier
      versions).
