I have a Fujitsu AH530 win 7 64bit. I had a warning about there being a lack of space on one of my hard disc drives. I looked at "my computer" and system C shows 1.93GB free of 50GB. Is there anyway I can increase this drivespace?

before getting that screenshot I can tell you that you wont be able to get it much below 20-25 GB used even with uninstalling every program that you have put on there.

 

You may be able to remove backups (system restore points) and save some space, but again your end space used is going to be 20-25GB +whatever files and programs that you have on there.

I have tried to reduce the number of things on my computer. The last one I got rid of was google earth. I thought that this was a bit big.

Are you installing files on the C Drive? Looks like the partition is only for the Windows OS, and the D partition is used for your data? Is the drive filling up on it's own without you installing anything?

 

Below is a program that we use here for company use, and works really well when finding out what is where:

With all due respecct...that program is rather dated (which indicates that there have been no improvements/updating, etc) , IMO.

 

One alternative, http://www.downloadbestsoft.com/WinDirStat.html

I have run WinDirStat. Little "pacmen" seemed to do their job, and I now have 3.29GB. With regard to Chrisd87 I do not choose where my downloads go. I do like them to be on the desktop so I know where they are.
