  1. Disk space getting used very fast


    So to put it into context I cleared up close to 2 gigs of space yesterday. I go back today and I have 70mb space, there were no updates to my knowledge. What’s happening to my storage space?

  2. hard disk space

    Hello,

    Taking into consideration that the free space is shrinking fast, it is possible that your system is creating restore points. To
    delete restore points except for the recent one, simply follow the steps below:

    • From the Cortana search box, type Disk Cleanup and click on the first result.
    • Once the Disk Cleanup window appears, select the
      More Options
      tab.
    • Under the System Restore and Shadow Copies column, click on the
      Clean up... button.

    Once done with the steps, see if your disk space has expanded.

    If you have further questions, please let us know.

    disk space reduced after media creation tool

    Hi Sarah,

    One of the possible reasons why your disk space was reduced is due to an unallocated disk space on your partitions. For us to isolate your concern, we suggest that you check your device's partition. To do this, follow the steps provided below:

    • Type Computer Management on Ask me anything and press
      Enter.
    • Select Storage and click on Disk Management.
    • Send us a screenshot.
    We look forward to your response.
