    Hibernation still taking up space after disabling?


    Hello, In Storage settings I noticed that the "Hibernation file" takes 6,37GB of space. After disabling Hibernation mode as well as Hybrid mode in the Advanced Power settings the Hibernation file still takes up the same amount of space. I do have Sleep mode enabled but that shouldn't be using the Hibernation file if I'm right, since Hybrid mode is disabled. I can see that the Hibernation file hiberfil.sys is still in C:/ when showing system files. Shouldn't disabling Hibernation mode free up that reserved space? I'm using Windows 10 Pro x64 20H2

    :)

    Hello,

    In Storage settings I noticed that the "Hibernation file" takes 6,37GB of space. After disabling Hibernation mode as well as Hybrid mode in the Advanced Power settings the Hibernation file still takes up the same amount of space. I do have Sleep mode enabled but that shouldn't be using the Hibernation file if I'm right, since Hybrid mode is disabled.

    I can see that the Hibernation file hiberfil.sys is still in C:/ when showing system files.

    Shouldn't disabling Hibernation mode free up that reserved space? I'm using Windows 10 Pro x64 20H2

    On may SSD setting hybrid shutdown (fast startup) and disabling hibernation results in a slight delay on boot but I can wait 20 or 30 seconds longer for everything to load. It's not an issue for me.

    To quote the tutorial:
    I.e. if you follow the tutorial, you have the option.

    Last link from the tutorial ->
    Specify Hiberfile Type as Full or Reduced in Windows 10

    You need to decide what you want.. no hiberfil.sys = no fast startup.
