Low Disk Space

Post by magicm00n on Fri 21 May 2010, 12:45 pm

What problem is this? Low this space? Is this a virus? I have over 20gb of free space and today morning it keeps giving the alert that my comp is low on disk space. So i went to check and i have only like 1mb of free space. What the hell is going on? How can I resolve this? Please help.

Try a cleaner like PureRa by RaProducts. Download from here.

  • First, unzip the program, e.g. to your desktop.
  • Double click PureRa.exe to run it.
  • When it opens, click the "Next" button to open up a menu of options.
  • Tick the box that says "Check All"
  • If you want detailed information about what got deleted, check the "Create Log" option.
  • Then press the "Clean" button to start the cleaning process.
  • It may look like nothing is happening, but let it run.
  • When the tool finishes, It will show you how much data it cleaned.
  • If you choose to create a log, it will open this log (C:\PureRa.txt, you can delete it afterwards)


How much did it clean up for you?

After that I recommend you download Windirstat from here and run it.
You can analyze which are the big files and folders. Especially the coloured diagram is very clear (click big squares to see the filename).
