You can't add more memory to your hard disk. If you have a phone with a lot of storage space, you can store your data on it. The other solution is to buy an external hard drive or usb flash drive to store more data like this one:

Wow, a 1 TB hard drive for $1.97.

2) in the same window on system cleaner go to advanced cleaner --> look down click on Advanced Settings --> then do "select all " -->press OK --> do a scan and delete all founded files .
3) disable reserved space for trash to do this go to trash ---> right click on it --> propreties ---> and select 2nd option "dont transfer files to trash" ---> apply and ok

4) disable reserved space for system restore to do this go to --> start --> type this in search filed " SystemPropertiesAdvanced " --> click on the result --> go to system protection tab --> if you look down you will find its activated on your C:\ so slect it and press configure like this image :

You can squeeze and free up space using for example WinRAR.

1.) Run the included "Disk cleanup" utility inside Windows. Go to the partition that is full, right click it and select Properties. On the Properties page, somply click Disk Cleanup, select all possible files in that list, click OK. Done.


2.) Use free cleaning softwaare, like:

https://www.ccleaner.com/ccleaner/download
https://privazer.com
https://www.kcsoftwares.com/?kcleaner

Install all of them, they work complementary to each other, they are all good for keeping your HDD clean and they delete useless files.


2.) Run the DISM utility.
https://blog.brankovucinec.com/2014/11/06/use-dism-to-cleanup-winsxs-after-windows-update/

I will summarize the useful commands for you:
dism /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
dism /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
dism /online /Cleanup-Image /SPSuperseded


These commands above work both in Command Prompt and also in Windows Powershell. Pay attention because you will need to run CMD or Powershell with Admin privileges.


Do all of the above and you should be able to save a lot of good storage space.


3.) Buy a cheap external USB hard disk drive.

Good luck!

you can also buy a larger hard disk size and put it inside your laptop. You will take your laptop to a person who fixes laptops and give him the larger internal hard disk size but buying a new external hard disk is better because you will incur cost of formatting new harddisk.
