    What Bitdefender version are you using? AV, AV+, IS, TS?
    I'm currently using BitDefender IS 2016 but I recently downgraded from TS about a month ago, but the disk space problems been happening for alot longer than that.

    I do use the vault, but I have very little in it so I'm not sure thats what the problem would be.

    Post your treesize then.

    80GB is a lot (unless you have games or something else huge installed). You should run compact /compactOS:always and then run the compression mentioned above by @eLPuSHeR in post #11.

    We found (with a bit of half hearted testing admitedly, but the best we could think of) that compression in fact improved performance in almost all cases. The only time it would be bad is if you had very fast IO (like a SSD) and a really crappy CPU from the year 1936.

    See here for a start for some numbers : Any useful scenario for NTFS compression? - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

    Aren't there any problems when using compression?

    You're welcome. Start saving for bigger SSD.

    No real problems. The only drawback is that when you update something (written over) it will get decompressed. So you have to issue a compact command again. For instance, let's say you have just updated Mozilla Firefox (x86), you should run compact /c /a /i /s /exe:xpress16k "c:\program files (x86)\Mozilla firefox"\*
    Using TAB key to complete names makes it faster than it sounds.

    Good point. You can use compact without the /exe:xxx and that persists for new stuff but it only compresses 4k (the default) which is a shame. Hopefully in the future you'll be able to chose the default but I don't think you can at the moment.
