    My OS C: Drive is mysteriously eating up space….


    So, about a week ago my C: drive space is about 101 GB and yesterday after I did my windows update, it went down to 74 GB. Now, I am stuck at 80.6 GB. Why is the Hard Drive keeps filling up by itself automatically for no reason on Windows 10? It will probably will go down some more once I start using Opera browser or Google Chrome using Blue Stacks. Down below is the list what I did to solve my issue:

    * I tried the Disk Clean up process from my computer to delete Temporary files and some other stuff.

    * I have a Ashampoo WinOptimizer18 that cleans my disk drive and delete stuff. Used it, but no dice.

    * I tried what Partition website says except doing the partition thing.

    * I did what this guide says except Extend C drive without data loss.

    * I did the CHKDSK Command Prompt thing.

    But I’ve no luck. It’s still the same. Why could possibly be the problem? Please help.

    :)

  3. Updates eating c drive space in Windows 10

    Frequent updates suggestion keep coming from Windows as well as from HP. As I keep all the applications updated I have observed my c drive space has become less and it has slowed down my laptop.

    After the installation of new updates my c drive space is shrinking incessantly .

    Could you please suggest what can be done so that machine doesn't become slow and c drive has enough space.

    What's eating up my \C: drive?

    That reduced System Volume Information to 662 KB, left $GetCurrent at 3.8 GB which is called media when clicking the little arrow. Storage sense or Disk cleanup gave no reference to $GetCurrent, and the [2 files] are pagefile.sys and swapfile.sys.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I will thank everyone and mark this thread as solved, I now have over 27 GB of free space on my C: drive, it must just slowly get down to size where Windows warned me with a red "flag" when viewing This PC.
