 How big is your hard drive?  When you can buy a 1 TB drive for $40 these days, I'd consider replacing the one you have.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

I recommend using Piriform's ccleaner as a starting point.  Avoid flagging everything you see.  Best to do things in small clumps.  I use Wise Disk Cleaner as well, however, let's start with Piriform ccleaner.  If need be, we can do Wise Disk Cleaner later.  I do not recommend "tree-climbing and deleting" via explorer.exe, you might end up with more grief than joy.

- A 100 GB HD is - in my opinion - too small for a Win 7 OS. Or do you have more drives (D:, E:  ???) on the same physical drive ?

- You mean the folderpaths that contain the word "AppData" ? No, DO NOT delete those folders !!!!

- Outlook: go through ALL the emails (even the archived emails) and I am sure you can delete A LOT OF emails. You also can save the content & attachments of those emails.

- Run the build-in "Disk Clean Up" tool. If you have no intention of removing any of the Windows Updates then you could also delete the archived system files. Just tick all the boxes.

"...A 100 GB HD is - in my opinion - too small for a Win 7 OS..."  +1 in a big way.  My OS partition now has 150 GB +- OS and 3rd party stuff.  Willy22, do you happen to remember WordPerfect5.1/DOS. dBASE/DOS, Lotus123/DOS - all on a 20MB HD?

FWIW:  I have had both Win 7 and XP installed on a 60GB SSD, along with programs.  I keep all data files on hard drives, with no problems, so the Windows partitions for each O/S had no reason to be any larger than they were.  It's the data which users collect...which eats up disk space, not the O/S and programs.

- Agree. It also depens on how much stuff one is storing on one's HD. But on my Win 7 system the "C:\Windows" folder is already a bit smaller than 20 GB in size. That would 20% of a 100 GB HD.


@TrevorCork:
- What is "hiding" in those 2 "Google Apps Sync" folders ? Can they be reduced in size ?
- Those "CBS" & "CBS persist" logs can be deleted.
