Very Large But Unknown File

Well I was trying to install somthing and suddenly realised I had a few gigs of drive space left. I calculated out all my big personal files and it didn't use up near the amount that was said to be used...
Anyway, I found a file called "Persis0.dsk" which is taking up 19 gigs. I cannot find any site that tells me what this file is. Supposidly DSk is a disk image, though I haven't made any images or anything. The strangest part is that it's telling me the file was created in 2006. I didn't even have my laptop in 2006... Anyone have any ideas what this file could be?
Thanks

Howdy and welcome to CTH:

What were you installing and from media was the installation (cd, downloaded-from where), etc?

Can you give the system specs of your computer - make and model, ram, hdd size, etc.

I think that is deep freeze... http://www.faronics.com/html/deepfreeze.asp

Put on School computers & others so no changes can be made to the computer. When you log off the computer goes back to it's original state. I could be wrong in this case though...

Murray - The installing isn't the problem, thats just when I noticed I had no drive space left.

w1che - Well I have a file called "Persis0.sys" as well which I did find to be a deepfreeze file. But no where could I find any info about Persis0.dsk.
I had to have deepfreeze to use this laptop on my old boards network. Now I have it off.. Still, it should not be 19 gigs should it? Or could that be the 'image' it uses to restore back to? But as I said, I don't believe I even had the laptop when it was created...

Specs:

OS: Windows XP 5.1, build 2600
Manufacturer: HP
Model: HP Compaq NC6320
Processor: Intel Core2 CPU T5500 @ 1.66GHz (2CPUs)
Memory: 1024 MB RAM
Hard Drive: About 80 gigs I think...

Yeah, I don't think any of that is going to be relevant to the problem at hand.
But thanks for the help so far

Yes that is an image file for deep freeze & it's more than likely password protected. I don't know how you uninstall it without the password but you may find out in google some place..

Alright, thanks.
I figured out the password years ago so I could install things on school computers.
Anyway, I'm going to attemp to get rid of it.
Thanks again
