Why does my Windows 7 machine suddenly have no disk space? I can't find the files that take up the space.

Run the program WinDirStat. It might be that temporary files have exploded in C:\Windows\Temp. You can delete these files with DOS.

How can I restart a Samba file server on Windows 7 without restarting the computer?

  1. Go to Run on the start menu and enter
  2. Type services.msc.
  3. RIght click on "server" and click "restart".
