My computer system is windows8. When I try to download something or just run some programs, a warning would show up and said that I have low disk space. How can I clear my disk space? Also, I wonder a simple disk defragmentation could be enough. Many thanks.

You don't need to buy software to obtain some extra disk space Windows has its own built in cleaner just double click on My Computer (or This PC for Win 8.1) then right click on the drive you want to clean, Click on Properties, and then on Disk Cleanup. You will be given a list of Files that can be removed. Click Here

Or a simpler method is to download the free version of CCleaner Click Here and it will guide you through cleaning unwanted files and also give you the option of cleaning the Registry. Disk defragmentation does not remove any files from your PC it just organises them in a more useful form.

Should have added that Thomasis is spamming in other forums and that the Forum Editor has been informed.
