I have 2.75 Gb of 675Gb free space on my lap top running Win 8.1 I do not have any music of thousands of photos,or any big apps,so I was wondering what could be using the disc space and how I could check and reclaim the disc space
Many thanks for any help
In your case, if you updated from Windows 8, see if there is a a folder called windows.old. Read and do all the stuff on the other thread and come back. Usually the Operating system and programmes are less than 100 Gigabytes.
Thanks ganesh naik and MarekCRO
I have followed Fruit Bat and John bunyans'advice.
I have downloaded and run a scan on Treesize,but not sure what to delete,I have run cc cleaner and it has only left the latest restore point,so that appears ok.
Any Help on what to look for and delete in Treesize will be appreciated
Treesize only shows you what folders are using the most space.
Sometimes you have to be ruthless and get rid of those programs you never or rarely use and only keep the day to day stuff on the laptop and transfer everything else to an external drive (they are cheap enough nowadays).
I would look ay your self generated data, such as films/ videos, music,etc. Are you sure your drive is not partitioned and you are looking at the C drive only? I think it unusual, unless you are into films, that you have so much used space.
