Cleaning out Your Hard Drive Space and Freeing up Disk Space

Even the newest, fastest, most advanced computers can fall prey to slowdown and space shortage. After all, computers might have higher processing power and more disk space every year but software is also becoming more advanced along with it. For most of us a time will come when we’re forced to do some hard drive cleanup so that we can free up disk space. This guide will show you how to do just that. Do a Scan Before you remove anything from your computer, do a system scan to check for any lost clusters, fragmented data, and otherwise junk files. Getting rid of all this stuff is often a great way to make a head start when cleaning up a hard drive. You should also run a disk defragmenter. Windows has its own cleanup software but if you can spare the dough you might want to consider one of the more dependable programs available in stores or online. Applications and Programs In your system tools section you’ll see an option that allows you to do a disk cleanup. Click on it and take a look at all of your icons. Drag the ones that are of no use to you to the recycle bin. Now it is time to uninstall. Go to the control panel and then select add/remove. This will present you with a list of your programs and how often you use them. The ones that you never or rarely use should be removed but if any of them say that they are used by other programs, don’t delete them just yet. They may cause unwanted errors...
