    System & Reserved taking up 45GB - Now I'm out of space on my laptop!


    So I recently got this laptop, a HUAWEI Matebook 13, about a week ago now. I'm definitely no pro with computers so I'll try and explain the issue the best I can. I have 2 drives when I press on my files, Windows (CSystem & Reserved taking up 45GB - Now I'm out of space on my laptop! :) and Data (DSystem & Reserved taking up 45GB - Now I'm out of space on my laptop! :). The Data drive has 0GBs used on it, whereas the Windows drive is now full. After checking what is taking up all my room on the C: drive, I found that 45GBs of storage is being dedicated to system & reserved. This seems abnormally large, any help?!?


    Thanks.

    :)

    windows 10 system and reserve taking up too much space

    Hi,



    Windows Restore Points does eat up tremendous amount of your disk space and clearing it would indeed help free up some space. Aside from restore points, there are other invisible factors that can eat away your hard drive space like temporary and cached files.
    For us to better understand why you keep on getting error messages about your storage space being full, we would like to ask the following questions:

    • When did you first encounter the issue?
    • Which Windows version and build is you device running? Type winver on the search bar, and then press
      Enter to find out.
    • What specific error message or error code did you get?
    • Could you repost the screenshots again?


    In the meantime, we suggest you check the steps provided by Greg Carmack on this

    thread
    about clearing system and reserve after an upgrade and see if it helps.



    We look forward to your response.

    System & Reserved taking up 45GB - Now I'm out of space on my laptop!

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

    In the window in your screenshot, click on "System and reserved" to see what's taking up the space.
