Disk Space

Postby ƒrosty » Fri Jul 24, 2009 4:36 am

I was in the process of a download when a notice popped up saying I was running low on disk space. About two seconds after, a notice popped up saying holy shit, bro, you're fucking critically low on disk space.
Right now, the only option I can think of is deleting all the music files on my computer, since any music I give two shits about is on my player.

I do see the risks in that, though, so I was wondering if there are hunks of files somewhere, like temps or something, that would benefit my computer by ceasing to exist.

Pop up¿ Or windows alert¿ If pop-up I'm afraid you've misunderstood.

Do you keep a lot of movies¿ 1 movie is like .7 gigs saved.

the regular ccleaner options can help, it should clean some excess baggage, ignore voly's topic and the reg cleaner option.
and if you've many restore points, you can remove all and just make a single new one, that can save a lot of space.
uninstall games and the like, those are usually a few gigs.

I know how to restore my computer and create a restore point, but where do I view / delete those points?

An alert from the task bar.

That's sort of the point; I'm asking about any unnecessary files I may not know of.

CCleaner does do removal. To do it manually, just go to where you'd create one, it should have an option to delete one as well.

Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup

Cleared eight gigabytes of temp files and unused restore points. I also deleted about eighty percent of the music on my computer for another couple gigs.

80% of the music on your computer only comes to about 2 gigs? o_O

I'm very picky about what gets on here.

I mean, shit; with this laptop, I have to be careful about disk space. I obviously wasn't careful enough.

picky what gets on, but not in what quality?
oh, and save up for an external harddrive man, they're fairly cheap these days.
