Re: Extremely low space, where all space go!! PLEASE HELP HELP

No dual boot, it is just windows which came with this computer. I got this computer a year ago from one of the distributer and I was a 100% new. I contact the agent but they did not provide any help at all.. The computer operating perfectly but I realized this problem when i was tried to upgrade the windows from 8 to 10 !

Re: Extremely low space, where all space go!! PLEASE HELP HELP

Can you show a screenshot of the disk management like Sabin requested?

Re: Extremely low space, where all space go!! PLEASE HELP HELP

Thanks for the new screenshot, ali-50.

 

If you look at the leftmost info about halfway down, you'll see the Disk 0 size reported as 119.12 GB. This is due to the way Windows reports size vs the way disk size is reported on packaging. 128 GB=128,000,000,000 on packaging. Divide by 1024^3 and you get the size as reported by the OS/Disk Management.

 

So with that in mind, you've got a couple of very small system partitions, a main Windows partition and a 12.93 GB partition where all of the resources needed to recover your machine to it's factory state are stored (invoked by the Novo button). Those partitions are not included in how your stats are shown in your prior screenshot.

 

Your Windows partition is 103.98 GB, out of the total size. The 30 GB used / 74 GB free matches.

 

Does this help?

Regards.

Re: Extremely low space, where all space go!! PLEASE HELP HELP

Hmmm... I missed that. Sorry.

I saw "74" and "30" and mistakenly did bad math.

 

Do you have any kind of automatic backup software running that could be filling up the drive?

 

Try this, please: start typing disk cleanup in the Search box and then launch the tool. Don't delete anything, but please see if anything is reported as using a lot of space. When done with that query, press the Clean up system files button, and take a look at what it reports, comparing to the first window. There may be leftover Windows update packages, or Windows.old directories. No need to delete anything yet.

 

Regards.

Re: Extremely low space, where all space go!! PLEASE HELP HELP

Look into your documents folder. Do you have a lot of files there? is it possible to move it to an external drive to see if it lowers?

Re: Extremely low space, where all space go!! PLEASE HELP HELP

OK.

 

At this point, I'd recommend that you get one of the free disk space reporting tools that are available. There are some listed here: http://www.howtogeek.com/113012/10-best-free-tools-to-analyze-hard-drive-space-on-your-windows-pc/

 

I don't have any particular favorite, and as always, please be cautious downloading anything, but hopefully this will pinpoint where your disk space is being used and what is filling it. After that, it should be easier to decide how to proceed.

 

Regards.
