My C drive says I only have 10.4GB Free Space  I am not a computer geek so am limited as to what I can do  I have checked TaskManager and Google chrome seems to be using 380 MB but everything else is less than 40 MB  I don't download films, music, photos etc so wondered what else it could be please - be kind!!

Hi Shamick,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Usually virus are common in consuming spaces but if you so not feel anything as such then I am thinking of possible recurrent auto backup made by Windows.

 

First, ensure that your data is backed up in a separate location.

 

I suggest that you share the machine type model / MTM (ex. 81C70000RK) from the sticker as it would help us detail more about your machine variant.

 

Check disk management to examine the content of the drives, perhaps you can share a screenshot too.

 

See if auto back is enabled in task scheduler (type task scheduler in the search box below) and disable it as it maybe ones causing it.

 

Then if all data is backed then you can decide if you need disk cleanup.

This would also give options to remove previous Windows installation aside from systembackup image done before.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards
