  1. Storage keeps filling up for no reason


    This is a real problem I am having - Whenever I have about 210 MB left on my hard disk, the storage just fills itself up to like 16.9 MB. I did not save anything or download anything that time. Can someone help?

    :)

  2. My storage space keeps filling up for no apparent reason.

    My storage space on my PC keeps filling up for no apparent reason. I'm using Windows 10. Most files are "other". I did a search on .cab files after seeing another fix (which didn't work) & have 417 winzip files. Is this likely to be the problem & is it
    safe to delete them?

    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.

    SSD storage keeps filling up on its own

    I don't have any games or anything larger than 5GB installed on my SSD but for some reason all of my storage keeps getting used up and I don't know by what I cant empty any space either. When I try to do a computer reset and choose the option to only clean
    the drive with windows installed on it (SSD) it stays at 1% and then says that rest failed I don't know what is going on. I am running on windows 10 and another thing i've tried is to use disk cleanup but the storage keeps filling up again on my solid state.
