There's probably one of these drive image programs running. they often
save data to the end of the drive. You could have a look in 'doze for
hidden, system files (set "Show all files" in My computer / view / Folder
Options to see hidden files). Un hide and unsystem these files, keep note
of the files you changed, do a defrag, do fips, boot windows again and
hide / system these files again. that should do you. That's all I can
remember but it's detailed in some howto somewhere.
