I'm stumped on this one, I have a user that has a WinXP PC...it was running out of HHD space before (only a 40GB HHD) and I copied the data over to a 150GB HHD using the tools that Western Digital gives you to do so. Anyways, he was just telling me that he was logged using the local user account then logged onto the domain that he belongs too. After doing so, the new HHD was reporting it was totally out of space on it. He rebooted the PC yesterday and logged in locally and on to the domain without any issues with the HHD running out of space....

Anyone care to venture a guess as to what is going on?

Domain GPO that gives a quota to a user's profile folder?

right-click on the C: drive and properties; does that screen show it's out of space?

I just checked the Domain he's logging into and GPO isn't setup for anything on it. Everything is set to not enabled.

I haven't seen new drive filled up with data personally, he checked himself, and I have no reason to doubt him since hes a SW dev

I wish our business apps/programmers were that trustworthy! :p

well if the drive is actually being shown as full... I couldn't even guess why that drive just got filled up.

have him run disk cleanup and see how much that will clear out (sans Compress Old Files)
just to see if something is downloading a crapton of temp files?

edit: or... does he have some huge network share set to "Make available offline"?
Check the size of the folder: C:\Windows\CSC (it's a hidden folder)
