    C drive filled with more than 120 Gb with no evidence of files of this size!


    Hello everyone,


    I am having a problem of C drive disk space.

    My C drive is 240 Gb. All of my C files including the hidden ones are about 90 Gb. Just two days ago suddenly the C drive got full. I tried to look for files of huge size and nothing exists. I cleared all temp and unnecessary files, which freed up around 1 Gb but that got occupied again in one second. I cleared my downloads files and the recycle bin (around 10 Gb both) and again within two minutes the C drive got full again! I tried all programs out there, one by one (Microsoft anti malicious software, Mcafee antivirus program, Malwarebytes, Adwcleaner, Regrun, Unhackme), and nothing worked!

    When I see the storage specifics from the settings, it shows that temp files occupy 140 Gb, yet it is not able to detect any files and I have deleted all temp files in the C drive but nothing has changed. I believe it is a virus/malware.

    I would appreciate any help. Thanks!

    :)

  2. Extend C drive Size

    Your Image does not show a D partition. It does show an F partition which if reduced in size would enable you to increase the size of the C partition.



    These are the steps needed to enable you to increase the size of your C partition:




    • Reduce F by 20 gb placing the unallocated space before F.

    • Increase the Recovery partition by 20 gb taking up unallocated space created by Step 1.

    • Reduce the Recovery partition by 20 gb placing the unallocated space before the Recovery partition.

    • Increase the C partition by 20 gb to take in the unallocated space before the Recovery partition.


    You can use Easeus Partition Manager (freeware) to carry out these tasks. The files in each partition are automatically moved when you carry out each step detailed above.

    How to extend system partition when there is no unallocated space next to it?

  4. C drive filled with more than 120 Gb with no evidence of files of this size!

    Duel drive system with 120 GB SSD and 1 TeraBit Hard Drive

    I have a I7 core 120 GB SSD and 1 Terabit Hard Drive with Windows 10 and Office 2016 installed, with my large email ost files my SSD drive is down to about 11 GB free and I have already moved all documents, photos, music and anything else I can think of
    the D: hard drive. Any suggestions on what Windows or Office Files can be moved to the D: drive in the same computer. Please note that it does not appear that any attempt to move the Outlook .ost file is allowed and no move button or change in the file location
    has worked.
