  1. How Is There Little Disk Space


    Dear MSCS


    I am in a dilemma concerning the amount of PC Disk Space that has been used up on this laptop.

    This is the data I have compiled using the properties utility available.


    This is my old laptop which was a WinXP, by changing the hard-drive, it was upgraded to a Win7 and now running Insiders Win10.


    Am I reading this right.

    I have (30GB) of iTunes back-up files and wondering that if I remove these, I should gain some space back, but I believe I would have to uninstall iTunes as well.


    There is 6 installations Apple have placed on this laptop for the iTunes to function.


    iTunes

    Apple Support 32

    Apple Support 64

    Apple Support Mobile Device

    Apple Software Update

    iCloud (Optional)


    The only thing is, I am not sure in which order I should uninstall these.

    I did this before on another PC an I couldn't update or uninstall, which to me became a security issue with the lack of control available and I cannot imagine in what order I should uninstall, but that is just the start of 30GB from what is taking up the disk space.


    OneDrive isn't taking up much space and I am connected to a 1TB external hard-drive.


    The Disk Space GB Used


    Local Disk 297 GB

    Local Disk Used 10.4 GB


    3D Objects 3.56 GB

    Desktop 2.56 MB

    Downloads 7.74 GB

    Music 30.9 GB

    Pictures 124 MB

    Videos 506 bytes


    OneDrive 3.29 GB

    DropBox 1 290 MB

    DropBox 2 290 MB

    iCloudPhotos 123 MB

    CreativeCloud 2.83 MB

    :)

    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.

    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.
