    Those other two answers could be correct.

    It is also possible for you to have a self-replicating-to-infinity virus too. It's less likely than the first two answers here, but still a possibility.

    Yes this may happen as hard drives with limited storage capacity, after its limit might not store or delete data. The rule of hard drives goes; that hard drives store entire data in its sectors and when the storage space gets decreased, it starts deleting the old saved data and accumulates new data to store.

    is this can happen if files not deleted permanantly i.e. they are in recycle bin .

    if u empty recycle bin then the space will be available or delete files using shift+delete

    If the recycle bin never gets emptied and you always delete to the recycle bin. Normally, however, recycle bin space gets, you know, recycled.
