CAN you people STOP TRYING TO BYPASS the censor filter.
You guys know exactly what word I'm talking about
since you used a k rather than a c.
That word, though not as harmful as a generic swear word, is more
of a 12 rated word (I'm going by what's said on the Simpsons....and they get away with nasty stuff.)
and this forum is a.....Universal (U) to Parental Guidance (PG) kinda rating. (Don't ask why I use film ratings...
But seriously, can you people stop using that word...You seriously could have said something
like 'I need to clear up the trash/rubbish/garbage/useless stuff on my computer...'
Ok, back to your hard drive space problem.
I have the same problem.
BUT, I have hundreds of FusionFall recordings, :lies:a few games,
lots of graphics, 3D/game projects and so on.
I use software called WinDirStat (always scan a download with VirusTotal, your antivirus software
and maybe Malwarebytes too.)
and this software shows you graphically, what's taking up the most space
in your hard drive.
It's awesome. You can even click the graphical blocks and right click
and view the folder they're in so you can delete them straight away if you want.
So it can help you delete the stuff you really don't need.
Also, try uninstalling software and games that you don't like anymore or hardly ever play
and don't feel like playing most of the time. You can keep your game CDs handy for a time you change your mind
Hope that helps.
ALSO, Disk Cleanup (it comes with Windows) can delete some unnecessary files.
This also includes Windows Restore points...this can be a dangerous move because
if your computer stops working and you're desperate for a restore...you won't have any restore points. :/
But they take a pretty decent chunk (usually a few GB in most cases I've seen)
of hard drive space. When I do it, I try to make sure I won't have random problems.
Sure, restore points get recreated but I don't know when they do. (Maybe a few days? A week?)
Well I hope that helps. Also, CCleaner can be a good option as someone mentioned but
I would advice you DON'T use the registry cleaner....I don't trust them because I used reg cleaners
on an old laptop and dodgy stuff happened.
(In the Help thing on the laptop, links stopped working if I remember correctly.
But the actual cleaning part of the programme should be helpful and safe. (I hope so anyway.)
And as always, scan downloads before you even think about opening them.
