Programs, restore points, doesn't take much space so deleting them is not sufficient to restore spaces (unless your programs are games that can take up to 10GB).



However, pagefile does big. It can be 4GB or more, you can reduce the size from Performance setting.



Another method is moving your default folders (Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos, Downloadss) from C:\User\You\#DIRECTORY# to another dirive/partition such as D:\#DIRECTORY#

If you do not have another drive/partition, there is no other way but replace your disk drove with a bigger one.

Hi @HFAvery

Move your desktop document video music download folder to another drive will clear more space in c drive.

The proper way to do is explained in this article.

Here are some solutions

Reasons for usage:

1) System Restore:
can DISABLE your system using this (Google for how)

2) Pagefile:
can set max/min to say 2GB

3) Hibernation:
You can disable this (uses up to the amount of DDR3 memory you have such as 8GB)

4) Downloads

5) Microsoft updates:
can't do anything about that really though once most are installed after initial Windows install you shouldn't see too much more space used.

6) Games:
Games can add SAVES to your C-drive documents or in some cases MOD or other data.

@HFAvery
Check the size of your hyber files and your page files and make sure their settings are not above your RAM size.

If your RAM size is 4Gb for instance your page file and hyber files settings from the system administrator, system control panel, should be 3Gb for each for the required operating system type. Not too low or too high per say.

Run a space analyzer on your hard drive to detect the cause of the space issue with a space sniffer, a freeware that is very resourceful. Goodluck

Hi
@HFAvery if you have NVIDIA in your system.then you can follow below steps to make some space.

NVIDIA sometimes leaves some garbage laying around that can take up a lot of space. The first is the following:

C:\NVIDIA

This one is directly referenced with NVIDIA's installer. However, after the installation, the following folder can also rack up space over time:

C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Installer2

Both locations can be emptied out without harming your computer. While you're clearing out your hard drive, though, use a space visualizer to find any other places that may be squatting on your hard drive's scarce property.

C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\Downloader

Most subfolders contain installer executables. Simply remove all folders with a random name, only leave config and latest. For example on my system the folder 0cfd1195e705a478237a4db99f7ce77c contains GeForce_Experience_Update_v3.4.0.70.exe.

Hope this will help

Use Acronic Partition Magic, take some free space from another local disk and add to the disk C. Normally I have 100gb for disk C, although I keep all my data at the different local disks: such as photoes, music, movies, downloads.
