  1. WHERE DID MY DISK SPACE GO


    I went to go eat dinner and i decide to check my c drive for how much space it had on it, and it says 3 gb, which is pretty good because i never have any space on my c drive and mostly all of the space leaves just like this, so i go to eat dinner which took about 15 minutes, then i come back and i look at my c drive space, and it says... 17 mb of disk space remaining. This is just insane for me, and honestly makes me want to grab my pc and make a Mr. Beast video with it where i smash it into pieces. please help.

    :)

    I suggest you to delete the unwanted applications or games installed on the device and also perform a Disk Cleanup.

    In order to delete the games or applications, which has been downloaded from the Windows Store you need to right click on the game and select

    To do so, please follow the below steps.

    • Right Click on Start Menu.
    • Open Control Panel.

    • Click Programs and Features.
