  1. Cannot delete 2 huge files.


    My storage on SSD had suddenly reduced o I tried disk clean up and checked every option but it did not work. I came across an application named TreeSize and it shows that 2 files. one is 8gb and the other has 3.2gb. pagefile.sys and hiberfil are the names of the files. plus, I cannot find this even after using the search tab in windows explorer.

    :)

    windows 10 deleted my desktop files

    Step 1 - I upgraded to Win 10 and lost all my files on Desktop.

    Step 2 - Found the files in Network - USers- Desktop

    copied all files again to desktop.

    Step 3- Restarted my machine again and lost desktop files again.

    Step 4 - As suggested did the following as listed below but dont find my files.

    • Press “Windows + E”, open This PC/Computer
    • Open Local Disc C, open Windows.old
    • Click on Users, select your User name
    • Go to desktop folder
    Cant find my files. Why is Win 10 deleted files again and again from Desktop ?.

    deleting hard drive files

    Hi,

    May we know what type of file are you trying to delete? Would it be Office documents, media files, or picture files? If you're trying to delete files for free some space on your device. We suggest to perform a Disc Cleanup. Kindly follow the steps below to
    perform the task:

    • Type in Cortana Disc Cleanup
    • Choose the files to delete
    • Click on "Clean up system files"
    • Click on Ok

    For any concerns, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Regards.

    How to Delete huge gamebuild.bin files from windows updates

    Hi Nikhar,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I do not have the app showing in apps and features, I had uninstalled all the games including Royal Revolt when I first got the laptop.When I try to delete these
    huge files, I'm told I do not have permission, even as an administrator.

    When trying to change the security settings for windowsapps folder I keep getting the message Error Applying Attributes to the folder access is denied.

    Do you know of any way around this, so I can delete the files and stop them from updating? Since October of last year, all five of the gamebuild.bin files are 1.89 GB.
