    Storage keeps filling up for no reason

    This is a real problem I am having - Whenever I have about 210 MB left on my hard disk, the storage just fills itself up to like 16.9 MB. I did not save anything or download anything that time. Can someone help?

    Do you mean MB or GB?

    210 MB is very very little free space. 210 GB should be plenty of free space for most users.

    You need a bigger hard drive.

    To look at what is using the space, run Everything (portable version).

    Stupid question -- could it be the pagefile doing that?
