disk space on c:

i have a strange thing happening on my pc:

i have 2 GB free disk space on c:
if i copy a larger file onto c: and get over the 2gb i find myself with 16 gb free space on my harddrive.

if i free space again, i get back to 2 GB free space..

is windows assigning other space to c: if it gets full ?

does anybody know what and why this happens ?

kind regards
stucki

Does Windows is not reducing the file size of virtual memory to free up space on HD?
