    I assume by "usage" you mean the amount of disk space that is being used. I suggest 2 things:

    1. run this program and post the resulting picture --> https://windirstat.info/

    2. Run the command below in an elevated command prompt and tell me what it says under "Allocated" and Maximum"

    vssadmin list shadowstorage

    If it's not a good idea, then no. But, I am afraid I won't have any space on my hard drive for Windows 10 from looking at that screenshot and what I circled.

    You just need to get rid of some of the garbage on there. You have over 200 GB taken up out of 282, that`s alot of stuff.

    If you clean install windows, all your data and programs will be gone.

    A 320 GB hard drive is only 298 in windows, and you have another partition taking up space. (recovery)

    Post a shot of disk management when you get back.

    Buy an external hard drive while you`re out LOL

    Help him what ?

    He`s done.

    One more thing Jesse, when you create a VM for windows, by default it makes up a 60 GB hard drive, I`m not sure if that stays in affect all the time.

    Wolfgang might know for sure.

    So that`s 60 GB right there.
