    drive C is getting fatter


    After I upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10, drive C (the system drive) shrink to less than 60GB.
    Now it grew back to 80GB. Disk cleanup (incl. system cleanup) didn't change a bit.
    I already erased everything related to windows 7.
    Is there anything else I can do?
    thanks

    Hello, really hard to answer.. for example, C: might contain
    - lots of user data
    - programs you've installed and all their temporary files
    - Windows itself, current files
    - Windows.old and files related to a Windows upgrade (which will be deleted after 10 days in the case of the anniversary upgrade).
    - temporary files related to browsers
    etc etc

    If you want to see what's taking space, try Windirstat (free).
    After it scans, it will create a rather cute picture for you.

    Ccleaner is an extremely well-known cleanup tool, and safe to use.

    No problem .. do try Windirstat - interesting style.

    Ccleaner is an extremely well-known cleanup tool, and safe to use.
    I use it prior to updating my disk image.

    Never bother with registry cleaners.

    of course I tried windirstat immediately only to remember that I used it in... windows 95!
