  2. C: drive progressively loses space

    Hi Piglet. Welcome to the TenForums @Piglet

    I would suggest that you install a tool like Everything from Voidtools.

    Downloads - voidtools

    With this tool you should be able to sort by size and at least identify the file names of the offending space stealers. You can also sort by date modified and you should be able to see these new files being creating.

    Once you have some file names then members may have a better idea of what the next steps are.

    C: drive progressively loses space

    Hello,

    My C: drive is progressively losing space the longer my computer is on. I am currently experiencing the worst example of it so far, which has prompted me to post this support request.

    • Three hours ago, I turned my computer on. C: had 32GB of free space.
    • Thirty minutes ago, I received a 'low disk space' warning. C: had been reduced to 0 bytes.
    • I moved 3.6GB of personal files to an external drive. After checking in 'This PC', however, C: showed just 2.2GB of free space.
    • At the time of writing, C: now has 1.3GB of space remaining. This will occasionally drop in increments of 50MB to 100MB. It will also sometimes stabilise for a short time before continuing to drop again.
    The only programs I have used in the past three hours are Chrome, Firefox, Foxtel Go (a streaming application), and Media Player Classic. It does not seem to matter which applications I use - if I use any applications at all - for the space to continue disappearing. Malwarebytes has not discovered any threats, either, and nothing appears to be abnormal in Task Manager.

    How can I figure out what is going on? Can anyone help, or suggest anything? This is incredibly frustrating and inconveniencing as you can imagine.

    Thank you in advance.

    Computer: Toshiba Satellite
    Processor: Intel Core i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz
    System type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
    Operating system: Windows 10 Pro

  4. Losing Space

    My lenovo laptop keep losing space and I don't know why. Help please.

    Hello,

    An update that was recently installed in your PC, or a malware might be the cause why you are losing space in your Windows 10 PC. To help you resolve this, kindly provide us with more information by answering the questions below.

    • Were there any recent update or program you installed prior to the memory space issue?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps that you have done in an attempt to resolve the issue?

    For case isolation, kindly perform a clean boot. A clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update or when you run
    a program in Windows 10. The steps in performing a clean boot are provided in the article below.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    Your response will be highly appreciated.
