I recently had to do a system restore on my laptop but now I can't download anything because I don't have any useable space on the hard drive. I keep getting an error message that

says it is full. I was able to download Ccleaner but it still shows I only have 4gb available out of 24 gb. I've used the disc clean up in system tools but there really isn't anything there to remove. Somehow I think the files that were there before the recovery are still on the harddrive but I can't sem to get rid of them and free up any space.
