    Black screen after restarting for disk cleanup


    So my pc has been having some problems lately and I googled what to do for them and one of the recommendations was to run risk cleanup. I went on my computer selected the drive C: and clicked to restart and do it. It’s been 4 hours and all it is is a loading circle in my monitor and the cursorI’ve unplugged all usbs except kb+m. I gonna leave it overnight but i’m afraid i’m gonna wake up to the same view. What should I do?Should it be talking this long considering my drive is 256Gb 7200rpm?

    disk cleanup

    Hi joysoder, to properly and safely delete any files not required by your system, run Disk Cleanup twice as explained below. Each time select everything in the list and delete them. Disk Cleanup will not suggest deleting anything that is not safe to delete
    . . .

    Open File Explorer

    Click on your hard drive

    On the Manage Tab, click Cleanup

    Let Disk Cleanup do its initial scan

    Select Everything in the list and choose Delete

    Start Disk Cleanup again

    Let Disk Cleanup do its initial scan

    This time in the resulting dialog, click 'Cleanup System Files'

    Let Disk Cleanup run another scan

    Select Everything in the list and choose Delete
