    Hi, I have a hard drive space of 256GB. Windows 10 is installed, along with Linux Ubuntu.I don't have any significant programs installed. One game and the usual library contents.Free space was usually at 25GB, it's currently at 18GB.Every day the space becomes less. I lose about 7GB in a short afternoon. I do a restart every day, and then whatever space was taken up before, I get back, however, the total free space is still getting smaller. As stated above, it used to be at 25GB, but over time, even after a regular restart, it's now at 18GB of available storage.I've got Avast Free Antivirus in
