    System Shrinks ?


    Hello Forum,
    My win 10 system, including office and several installed programs, and one restore point, occupies approx. 30.6 GB on "C" drive at starting the pc.Along the day it 'grows' up to approx. 32 GB, no installations or updates.Yesterday I ran a small (portable) program, it was a "thumb cache viewer", and since it did not suit me, I deleted it.Occasionally I checked "C" properties and it became 29.3 GB ?!The only change I noticed was a newer restore point, strangely the previous one gone. (It was created automatically)Checked my system by rebooting - everything fine, ran full scan with defender - no findings.Any explanation please, or am I just worried about nothing.Answers will be appreciated.Thanks

    :)

  2. AMD to Give 20 nm Optical Shrinks to Console SoCs First

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_360_technical_specifications

    Scroll down to list of revisions. Die shrinks are not consumer relevant with consoles. They bring no performance changes because consistency is the entire point of them. Unless you're batshit crazy Nintendo that is, then you get the "new 3DS" half step BS.

    SHRINK C VOLUME TO SMALLER CAPACITY

    Hi,

    Thanks for replying to us with the status of your issue.

    While shrinking the volume, you cannot use the upper arrow because, while shrinking the system will take the max amount of space that can be shrink. However, you can use the down arrow button to reduce the amount of space, which you want to shrink.

    Since, both up and down buttons are not working, it might be an issue with system file corruption.

    I suggest you to try running System File Checker (SFC)
    and check if it helps.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    To perform SFC Scan, refer to the below link:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833

    Note: Steps mentioned for Windows 8/8.1, will work fine with Windows 10.

    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.
