Lenovo Ideapad 500s

How to clean out storage space. I have tried disc clean and have deleted many programs and files but keep running out of Space. I have an external drive but how to use this to relieve space ?

Re: Lenovo Ideapad 500s

Hi there, Garry                  -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

What apps do you use?  Perhaps try emptying the cache for each app under that app's settings?  Eg. Google Maps or Google Earth, YouTube could be set up to hold browsed content, same with your web browser?

 

Are you streaming video or music that is being held onto your device? Go to settings for each app & adjust the app settings to empty content on closing or to set storage limits? If you go into Settings>Storage or Settings>Apps, you should be able to see almost exactly what app or where the storage use is?

 

It's difficult to advise you exactly without your telling us more specific things about your apps, usage & device. Maybe add some screen shots of Settings>Storage so we can see what that looks like.  What OS version are you using? How familiar are you with computers & file management?

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 

Regards,

The problem turned out to be a virus that was gradually using storage space. I have had it cleaned and the computer ckecked. All seems good now. By using up the storage space the virus had pushed out the functionality of the Virus protector i.e. Trend Micro.
