filling harddrive

  civicr 20:40 28 Dec 2007

Hi all ,
Hope you all had a good chrimbo , but i think my harddrive had to much turkey this year . For a good while now ive not been able to understand why the space has been getting less . So i ran a prog to see which prog has been eating my space and it turns out to be windows with a massive 29gb . Does anyone know whats going on and how to get my space back .
Thanks ,

Clear out all temporay files and folders -- use Crap Cleaner click here

Limit the amount of space sytem restore uses click here

Uninstall Windows update restore points if your PC is ok after updates, these are all marked in Blue starting with $ in the windows folder.

What like $nyuninstallwmfd1h11$
Also a file called installer takes up 21.30gb
do you know what this is and can it be rid of.
