TreeSize


In an effort to find all the stuff that is clogging up my main drive I came by this. It was really useful to find stuff in the AppData especially - I had many GBs being used by stuff that wasn't uninstalled fully.

After all my tidying up tonight I freed up about 40-50GBs of space.

Re: TreeSize


I've used TreeSize too, pretty good.

I have a 50 GIG C: drive and I keep it around 20 GIG free, I know if it's less than that it needs a clean up.

Of course all my documents and work are on another drive and I have 3 more drives for games.

Re: TreeSize


I'm wary of using registry cleaners - I've borked my PC in the distant past by using those - the other tools might be useful though.

Yeah me too, I don't go near that option but the software does clean up rubbish files very well.  thumbsup

There are few more things you can do to get back a lot of space on C: drive, I do all of them.

Disable hibernation and delete the hiberfil.sys file.

Move the windows page file to another SSD

Re: TreeSize


I wondered about moving the page file, but it's probably not a problem for me and I don't want to mess it up.

I have about 100GB free on C: now so plenty of room.

I just noticed that the AI Suite has a windows cleaner, that seemed to work okay.
