    SSD storage keeps filling up on its own

    Hi Ash,

    There's a possibility that the files are just hidden. As an initial troubleshooting, we suggest following the steps below on how to display hidden files that's eating space of your SSD:

    • On the Search bar, type folder, and then select
      Show hidden files and folders from the search results.
    • Under Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives,
      and then select OK.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.

  3. SSD keeps filling up

    My SSD keeps slowly filling up, when my computer is on. Then when i restart my computer, i takes around an hour, and it says the message "configuring windows". When the computer is launched again, my ssd i back to normal capacity, but slowly fills up again.
    But the wierd thing is, it only started to happen, after i did a complete re installation of my computer.

    SSD keeps filling up

    Hey Carlos

    So i just did reinstall my windows operating system, through windows it self. And before i did it, the problem wasn't there.

    And by slowly filling up, i mean that over time the SSD (or c drive) is being filled up with files. But when i look in the c drive, nothing has changed. And yes i have done so i can see all the hidden folders. Its a 120gb SSD and the windows installation
    fills up around 30-40gbit, so the rest is free space. It is slowly filling up the ~80gb up over 4-5 hours. Then when i restart the pc is back to the ~80gb of free space and slowly fills up again.
