    System Taking Like All of my space ._.

    Windows File Explorer is not great at finding out where your hard drive space is being used . . .

    • Click HERE to download a small free utility Called TreeSize.
    • Run that utility as Administrator
    • Point it to your C Drive
    • Let the list of files/folders build
    • Expand out the folder(s) that are taking all your hard drive space
    • Please provide a screenshot of the resulting window in order for us to make a better analysis of what is happening with your system and suggest a remedy

  3. System and Reserved Files are taking too much space. 350GB

    Hello,

    The system and reserved files may continue to consume space due to a certain service log that could add to your system as a result of multiple operations. At this moment, we suggest that you run
    CHKDSK command prompt by following the steps below:

    • Plug in your external hard drive, USB drive or memory card to PC.
    • Open Command Prompt; then, press Windows key + X button and select the
      Command Prompt (Admin) option.
    • In the new Command Prompt window, type chkdskE: /f /r. Here, you should replace E with the drive letter of your external hard drive or USB device.

    Note: This operation will run CHKDSK to check and repair file system corruption, errors, corruptions or bad sectors on the external hard drive or USB disk.

    It is also advisable to manually delete files in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS. To do so, follow the steps on this article:

    Clean Up Component-Based Servicing logs
    .

    Let us know the result and progress of your troubleshooting.

  4. system files taking so much space

    Not enough space even though there is space

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    We will surely assist you with the issue. Refer the below steps.

    Step 1:

    I suggest you to change the file system to NTFS while formatting and then try copying the files and check.



    Step 2:

      • Take the backup of the data, if you have any important data in it?
      • Let’s format the drive and check.
      • Go to this PC.
      • Right click on the external USB device.
      • Select Format.

    Note: Formatting will delete all the data in the device, taking a backup of the data is recommended before performing a format.

    Keep us posted for further assistance, we will be glad to help.
