    Hi, I'd just like to ask like sometimes when i check my storage the amount of gigabytes used is always not the same. Why is that so? Like when I check my apps and games section they tell me that it went from 3 GB to 6.66GB, but I did not install anything! Also, when I click temporary files there is this section updates that is always about like 3-4GB. Why is it so much?

    :)

    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?

    • Are you getting any error message?
    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.

    • Right click on the driver and Update the drivers.


    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.
