Solved GB size decreasing...

Post by restrung on Tue 20 Jan 2009, 1:48 am

I am having a problem with my Toshiba Satellite A205-S5812 running on Windows Vista. It randomly keeps taking chunks of GB away from me. I went to bed last night with 110GB of free space and I wake up today with 106. Yea I don't have a problem with 106GB but it keeps happening and I'm worried that eventually it will get into the double or even single digits. Please help, thanks.

How often do you clean temp files? compress unused files? etc

Download ATF Cleaner

  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Click Select All found at the bottom of the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browser, do this also:

  • Click Firefox at the top and choose Select All from the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browser, do this also:

  • Click Opera at the top and choose Select All from the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

Press Start > Run (Right click the Run and select Run as administrator)
Type in:
cleanmgr
Press enter.
Allow it to scan and tick everything, and let it do what it needs to.

No, ATF-Cleaner and CCleaner are different.
CCleaner has an option to clean the registry, I do not recommend this as it has the potential to turn your machine into a paperweight.

ATF-Cleaner doesn't clean the registry, only files, much safer.
