Dear Sirs,

On the 12-07-2017, after turning on my computer, and going through my files, I noticed that I lost 22 gig of space? I haven't downloaded any thing the day before.  I pretty much kept my free space between 142 to 144 gigs of free space. Overnight, it dropped to 122 gigs, a 22 gig loss.

Here's my system set-up: Dell Studio Laptop 1558, 223 SSD, 8 gig Memory.  The utilities That I currently have: Malwarebytes Premium: Superantispyware Professional: Hitman Pro Alert: and at the time of the attack, Bitdefender free version. None of the utilities never conflicted with each other.

I did run Malwarebytes in "safe mode," and nothing was detected. Going to regular mode, I then ran all the other regular utilities-nothing was found? I went to Norton NP Eraser site and downloaded it, and ran it. It tagged one of my old writing programs and three other things from the registry. I let it delete the four idems listed. The computer is running smoothly, but I still have the loss of the 22 gig space.

Next, I came here and downloaded the "Farber" software and ran it twice: once on normal setting mode: and once on the 90 day file mode only. I labeled them Addition 1, and Addition 2.  In Addition 2, it shows something called "Shadow Copy."  I believe this was the culprit. Not sure if it was deleted in the scans-I'll let you be the judge. But even so, is there any way to delete the shadow copies to regain the space?

Thanks for your time.

Hi @dwdraw2, I moved your thread to the Malware Removal section so a community expert can help you.

I see you posted a couple of logs, but our experts usually need a couple of more especially from FRST. See the details here:
