    Can't find files in HDD after update


    when I upgraded to windows ten I selected keep nothing when it asked me what files I wanted to keep thing it would delete all the junk I don't need on my pc, but after the upgrade my HDD was just as full as it was before. so I tried to manually delete stuff but now when I look through my cdrive I says all the file are empty except for the windows one. When I look to see how much room I left no my hard drive it says one out of two TB is full but I cant find what's taking up that 1 TB anywhere

    Upgrading is not going to get rid of applications had on previous operating system unless there incompatible would let you know during the process. Saying keep nothing is basically talking about settings, certain apps and files. Need to do a clean install to get rid of this.

    Not sure if i understand this part
    " when I look through my cdrive I says all the file are empty except for the windows one "

    Can get rid of backup folder from upgrade to save space, need to know more on this first. Plus have 30 days before can roll back mattering to i believe on day you upgraded.
