    And you can also download this disk cleaner which finds much more than CCleaner. I have used this for years without any issues; however, make sure you run it at default values (no deep clean). I am only suggesting this because it sounds like you are in a real pinch to recover some space: Wise Disk Cleaner - Free Disk Cleanup and Defrag Tool

    It comes in a portable version as well:
    WiseCleaner Downloads - Download Free Registry Cleaner, Download Free Disk Cleaner, Download Wise Care 365
