Re­cover drive stor­age space

Windows 7 Help & Advice - - FEATURE -

Once you ’re up and run­ning with Win­dows 10, and con­vinced you won’t need to go back to your pre­vi­ous ver­sion of Win­dows, it’s time to free up some drive space. Open File Ex­plorer, go to This PC, right-click your ‘C’ drive, choose Prop­er­ties, then click Disk Clean-up. As soon as the di­a­log opens, click ‘Clean up sys­tem files’, and wait for it to scan again. Go through the list, tick­ing those items you don’t need – the big­gest item by far will be ‘Pre­vi­ous Win­dows in­stal­la­tion(s)’. Tick this to free up space, but re­mem­ber there’s no go­ing back once the files are gone.
