    I just bought my Acer nitro five (windows ten) and I downloaded a few apps witch took up around 30 gigabytes of storage and after this it says I have used 200 gigabytes of space with I have counted up the amount of space I used and it is way under 200 like I said earlier around 30 gigabytes I am wondering if this is a virus or a glitch, and how do I solve it?

    Hi George,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern and will assist you to resolve this issue.


    • Did you make any changes in BIOS?

    I suggest you to update Storage controller drivers and check if it helps.

    Steps 1:


    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Select Device manager.

    • Expand Storage controller.

    Steps 2: Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with hardware and devices. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue
    is with device. Refer these steps:


    • Press Windows key +X, select Control panel.

    • Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel.
