i used to have about 2GB of free HDD space on my C: drive about a couple of weeks ago. i never install things on C: (where windows is) but only on D: and E:.
i know 2GB isnt enough for win7 but i had no issues with this amount of space.
however now i have about 400MB which is too little and gets little every few days for a reason i dont understand. i know certain games have their save files on C: but im regulating
the save folders of my newer games and they are always small and meaningless.
i am afraid i have some temporary files that windows used for isntalling stuff and never removed these files, or something else that got bloated on my HDD and was never deleted.
i tried disk cleanup (didnt help much at all) and i looked in c:\windows\temp ( empty) but something is fishy around here.
i had an issue a few days ago where the computer wouldnt restart without a BSOD first (the BSOD on restart has resolved itself, somehow) so maybe that was a period where files didnt get deleted properly. i dont know.
in any case - i want to clear room on C:. i never install programs on C: so it's weird that it gets clogged. i would appreciate any help on what is the best way to look for unnecessary files in c: or just plain big files i could delete.
dont tell me to get a new Harddrive i am aware of the option ;)
