My computer has a 64GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. When I first installed the SSD, I did a complete wipe on everything and set it up so Windows and essential boot and running files would be on the SSD, while my HDD served as a drive for storage and programs, basically everything else.
It's been running fine for a while, but over time my SSD has been filling up and I'm not exactly sure what's been causing it. I try and make a point to place everything I install into my E drive (the hdd). Most of the time it's automatic. Right now it only has 10.1 GB left in it's capacity, so I'm not in the red yet, but I wanna get this problem taken care of early and keep it taken care of so it won't be a problem again.
Alright then, so let's go over it.
10.1 GB free of 59.5 GB, so that means 49.4 GB is being used up.
Going down the properties of each folder in my C drive... (including hidden)
AMD, 138 KB
Intel, 921 KB
PerfLogs, 0 B
Program Files, 525 MB
Program Files (x86), 6.50 GB
ProgramData (hidden), 16.8 GB
SuperChargerProfile (hidden), 270 B
Users, 5.24 GB
Windows, 23.0 GB
Using a byte calculator, this adds up to 52.05371 GB. hey, that's not 49.4. what gives? My folder options are set to show everything hidden.
Anyway, the size of my Windows file has more than doubled since I did my initial tweaks. How can I fix this and keep it from happening again?
Also, is there any way I can set it so I can view the size of my folder contents in the size category? It's all blank, and it would be a lot easier to manage this if I didn't have to right click properties on every single folder to see where my space is going.
