    storage


    so i realised recently that on my 256gb ssd i only had access to very little of it which was suppressing because i had barley anything downloaded. i did some digging and found this file on my pc under system volume info which was taking up 52gb; so i tried to delete it and it wouldn't let me and i did a bit of research but never came to a conclusion so any advice would be helpful so help delete it or lessen the amount of storage it uses.

    :)

    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?

    • 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.
