I don't speak what ever language that is, but it looks like about a quarter of C: is used. What is the problem?

EDIT--

if space is the problem, after windows updates and all of your programs, even with that stuff disabled, that's a realistic number. Your options:

1. uninstall programs
2. get a bigger ssd
3. switch to *nix


thats it.

thanks for the appreciation of my native language...

the thing is if i select all my folders including the hidden ones windows tells me that they are using 54.2Gb but if i select the disk properties it states that its being used 70,7Gb so where is the difference being used (16.5Gb)?

likely meta-data. meta data allows it be appear in one place and be in another, which is how a lot of thing work. There's over head involved.

also, no disrespect what so ever, I myself speak two differant languages, I just expected a bit more of an explaination since the forum is in english smile.gif

for example,



they just use different ways of defining data. Unless you count the single threads on the actually hard disk, it's not an exact science. (ignore the 2.1TB thing the disk isn't even that big.I think that must be raw or something, I don't know.

Its your page file taking up the other space. You need to uncheck hide protected operating system files, not just show hidden files and folders.
