This should free up a good chunk of space as well if you're wondering where all your space went.

Are you guys using windows 7 or older? Didn't save much at all on windows 8. Curious if MS made some changes or if I've just not had many updates.


Make sure you choose to clean up system files, it doesn't show up by default.

Funny this got brought up, I did this last night and cleared 1.2GB. Still think there must be something I'm missing though, a manual count of folders shows about 50GB of files, yet it's showing about 100GB used on disk properties.

You can also disable hibernate freeing up as much space as your RAM holds.

I'm not a muckaluck mang. I saved a total of 400mb and mostly from temp files.

Edit: Also your system files and other hidden files aren't always counted in the manual count. As mentioned above, a hibernation file, system restore, and cache/pagefile could be taking up some space as well. Unless you REALLY need the space I wouldn't bother fooling around with any of those.

Yeah I'm not dying for space, it's a 250GB SSD, enough for Windoze and a handful of games currently being played, main storage is on a 2TB HDD. Mostly just annoys me to see the weird numbers and since it's a new build I'm trying to keep things nice and clean.

Freed about 500 on Windows 8.

I cleaned up system or update files on a Windows 8 machine and core sytem files like cmd.exe suddenly got deleted until I could no longer startup into Windows and I eventually had to format the entire drive.

Exactly how did you 'clean up' these files? Sounds like user error not system error. Yes I'm defending windows 8 and yes I'm blaming you for that situation.
