    My hard disk space shows different amount sometimes


    That isnt actuall a problem, but I usually make some videos and then I put those on ripping software and that
    makes the windows to create some temp files. I know that windows doesnt delete them at all, but I saw that yesterday,
    and windows cleared about of 7 gb from temp files. My system restore is on 1% (10GB) but I rare make restore points.
    As I say again, I dont encounter HDD problems or failures, my hard disk health is ok, and I didnt got any of my personal
    files deleted.

    You should probably just run Disk Cleanup once a day.

    Ok, so that means windows itself auto cleans temp files ?

    I just saw that on cleanup and yes, there are many folder with dozens of GBs.

    When you run Disk cleanup, yes.

    I'm impressed you got Win 10 running on that computer (the one in your specs?)

    yep. The good thing is that it started from w8 back on 2013, and still going <<strong>> (moreover it dying slowly, but who cares), although I have had hard times in past to make it controlable, with various formats, tweaks etc.
