Hi,

so my disc shows that there is around 15GB of free space left from 213GB.  Well check the imgur here : https://imgur.com/a/WCeOa . I used WinDirStat to check it and it seems that there should be around 90GB of free space not 15GB. Sorry for my language, english is not my native one. I use laptop Dell windows 8, there is only one disc inside. Can some1 help me find out how to fix that, thanks in advance.

I would run a hard drive inventory on your C:\ drive to see what applications takes up the most space. If it also shows you are 15GB, it should show you have the the rest what applications is using them.

 

That what I usually do. It usually caused by a sync program or the temp folder being full because the windows updates downloads are broken causing thousands of temp files to created.

So its a SSD that makes sense.

 

Maybe its time to clean up unsused or unwanted apps?

Do you use TRIM on it?

Also make sure windows auto defrag is off.

 

Do you have an external or cloud based storage?

https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/why-trim-important-to-solid-state-hard-drives/

 

In short TRIM is like defrag on a normal hard drive but you should never use normal defrag tools on a SSD.

 

Here is a list of options:

Doesnt matter what one you use as SSD tools are near universal
