    Hey guys, i was trying to have a clean-out in my PC and i defragged and everything else and my biggest program now stands at like 1GB, i have one folder which is 2GB and the rest are around 500mb, but looks at how much memory i have free compared to how much my HD can hold


    Any ideas?

    I mean, obv my OS will take up some but cmon, i cant think where or what is taking up all the space ^^

    Cached data and Temporary storage? Whenever you visit a webpage it'll store images and data on your hard drive so the page will load faster next time you visit it and just load up new changes to your cache.

    Try clearing it, if you use Firefox there should be an option under Tools > Options > Advanced > Network

    I use these two for finding such things in different ways:
    WinDirStat better visualizes specific files or types of files that are eating space up.
    Overdisk is better at showing you folders that are eating up space.
