    @Vellaura,
    When my SSD space is running low, I like to use WizTree (portable) to visually see what's using up disk space. I've found WizTree to be the fastest of similarly recommended software.

    How much free space is left on the 128 GB SSD. IMHO, you should try to maintain 30 GB free if possible.

    I concur with following his advice in the video.

    I would have bought at least 256 GB to avoid some of the gymnastics.

    The video's not really gymnastics - it's some of the other suggestions outside of the video and just trying to keep the SSD usage tame with only 128 GB. So I asked before and don't think you replied .... how much free space on the SSD ATM?

    No comment on my post, so I'll point out just one more thing for you.

    Keep as much personal data as you can off C:

    Why? The most likely thing you'll have to do assuming you use disk imaging routinely as is recommended here so frequently is at some point to restore an image of Windows. That means all data on C: is restored as it was on the date the image was created.

    If your data is on the HDD not the SSD, it's unaffected.

    I follow this good advice.

    @Vellaura,

    Hard drive 100% free? Must be something you can move over there from C: drive WizTree can be useful seeing what you might want to move, if anything's taking up a lot of space and can be moved like document, pictures, music, other data files.

    Wondering why you didn't install Windows as UEFI as I don't see any EFI partition on C:. Does you BIOS not support UEFI? Don't change/break anything right now .

    Aha yea, I just did a fresh install of everything! That's why its 100% free , dw it will fill up soon, but it all looks good yeah? Windows didn't go messing things up?

    My Mobo is a Asus Rampage 3 Formula, very old mobo, pretty sure it doesn't have UEFI, so that could be why.

    Thank you :)
