Constantly losing space on Boot Drive? Why?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I usually don't care, but my Boot Drive is down to 12.8Gb right now. It used to be at 20Gb like two months ago. I haven't installed anything on my computer really, and if I install anything I usually put it on my Raid or other SSD.

Anyways, is there a way to see where all the space is being allocated so I can try to figure out what's going on?

Thanks.
Alice

Sounds like Windows System Restore. Only way I know to delete them is to download CC Cleaner and go to the restore section and delete them from there.

System restore? Hibernation? Have you checked just the basic disk cleanup?

Disable Hibernation "powercfg -h off" in elevated command prompt. Set a static 1-2GB pagefile on SSD. Disable system restore.

If you have office installed, take control of the MSOCache folder and delete it. If you have the disc you won't need those files. The cache is for repairing office without the disk. Not needed if you have the disk and need more SSD space.

Just a thought, but Win updates are small, but the sheer amount of them fill a sizable amount of space rather quickly....

System Restores always caused more issues later on for me anyways. It's a automatic turn off for me on every fresh install of Windows.

I did a disk Cleanup and cleared out like 4 gigs of Temp files, so that helped a bit. I don't have a Paging file on my SSDs, it's setup on my Raid drives.
