Tidying up after Windows spilled over from SSD?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have seen a few systems like this now, where a small OS SSD has filled up and now Windows has "overflowed" a bunch of Program Files etc onto the storage HDD.

Is there a relatively non-invasive / streamlined way to clean this up? I have searched for info to no avail.

Thanks,

The only way i find is doing it manually with WinDirStat and careful deleting files. That tool help you visualize the folders and files size much better than the Windows Explorer. thumb.gif
