    Windows 10 Disk D FULL???

    Hi,

    When you scan your computer using Windows Defender, it will delete those files automatically or it will move those files to Quarantine which you can delete later on. Upon seeing the scan results of Windows Defender, it seems that it is detecting that your
    backup files are threats. Since the files are backup files, it is possible that they are the reason why your Local Disk (DWill my files on Local Disk (D:) get deleted if i reinstall Windows 10 :) drive is full. Like what
    lacrumb mentioned, if you're using a backup program that backs up your files in the Local Disk (CWill my files on Local Disk (D:) get deleted if i reinstall Windows 10 :) and saves it in the Local Disk (DWill my files on Local Disk (D:) get deleted if i reinstall Windows 10 :), it will definitely take the majority of the disk space. We recommend that you access the Local Disk (DWill my files on Local Disk (D:) get deleted if i reinstall Windows 10 :)
    and check what are the files there that you can delete.

    Let us know how it goes.

    as long as you re-install to partition C - you should be fine with the files on partition D
    As long as you do not delete the current partition scheme

  5. What if (D*Smile becomes full? I just finished transferring my files to (D*Smile and found out i had insufficient space and now i still have 8 gb worth of data left on (C*Smile. Is it okay to leave them there? I put them C:\Users\Username\Documents. I heard that Windows always leaves the User's Folder untouched during Reinstallation/Reset. Is this true?

    Is D: a separate physical disk or just a partition? If a partition it is not a good location for backups. If the drive fails you will lose everything. That happens even with new drives and often without warning or apparent cause.

    Suggest you back up REALLY CRITICAL files to cloud as well, just in case things go pearshaped.
