Solved GB size decreasing...

Post by restrung on 19th January 2009, 2:48 pm

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.

  • 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.
