    Default Attempted to backup database --- HEM froze and ate 30~gb of harddisk space instead

    I'm in the process of backing up some of my files before reinstalling my computer, and while attempting to backup my HEM2 database, the program froze and created abou 30gb of space on my main drive (instead of on the target drive of the backup).

    How do I 1) locate this excess waste 2) delete it?

    I can't seem to find it in PGAdminIII... If I go to add/remove programs, it now informs me that my postgresql entry is taking up a nice 108 gb of harddrive space.

    Halp ?
