  1. My C: drive is filling up for no reason


    A few days ago I had over 170 GB free space on my C: drive, and yesterday when I checked I only had 50 GB free space.

  2. C drive filling for no apparent reason

    Hello, these few days I have been continuously using disk cleanup and deleting junk in the temp files to free up space in my C drive. After that, it only saved up around 3 GB of space which were then used up again, and my drive is almost full again. I
    am not downloading any programs or anything, so I have no reason why it keeps filling up. When I try to clean up now, I'll only be saving KB's of space, and the temp files are not filled with junk. Please help.

    My C Drive keeps filling for no reason...

    no sense to me. Ive looked through articles and cant find anything and im beginning to get frustrated.

    Can anyone help,
