    Discs/Partitions disappear from my computer


    Hello

    When i enter to "My Computer" my Discs/Partitions E(its was called D before), F besides C are gone!
    Imgur: The magic of the Internet Before
    Imgur: The magic of the Internet After

    (Disc C had reduced space because ive installed 18 Wheels of Steel - American Long Haul game)

    Where are they go!? i see them in computer management but not my computer.

    When ive restart my laptop they return but still...they soon disappear for no reason
    How do I clean the disks of unnecessary programs when they disappear before my eyes!

    I am not surprised you have problems
    It is not ONLY the OS - partition - lettered C - that is full to dangerous levels with hardly any free capacity
    but also the other disks.

    Have you written all this data to these drives - or is the lack of free space not accounted for in that regard
    I do appreciate that you have explained why C is full - Wheels of Steel

    So when you ask
    How do I clean the disks of unnecessary programs when they disappear before my eyes!
    that very much depends on the answer to the question I have asked.

    Hello @Pablo89,

    How do I clean the disks . . .

    There are a few ways to achieve this.

    As a start . . .

    > How to Open and Use Disk Cleanup in Windows 10

    Then to see which Programs and Files are using your Disk Space . . .

     WizTree - Disk Space Analyser

    About WizTree:

    WizTree makes it very easy to locate and remove Space Hogs from your hard drive. The visual tree map displays the sizes of all of your files visually, helping you to quickly locate large files and folders.

    When scanning NTFS formatted drives, WizTree reads the hard drive's Master File Table (MFT) directly from the disk (like Everything Search does). It can also quickly scan non NTFS and network drives.

    Unlike similar applications, WizTree correctly handles hard linked files (doesn't count them more than once). The total allocated space reported by WizTree will actually match what Windows reports.

    File details can be exported to a CSV file.

    > Website => WizTree - The FASTEST Disk Space Analyser
    > Download => Download WizTree - Includes Portable Version.

    I hope this helps.
