    Storage Problem


    Hey,
    I've recently been having issues with my storage, and when i've gone to look at what is taking up all the space, it turns out to be 65.3GB of temporary files which I can't delete!
    Please help as this affects me when making YouTube video's
    Thanks

    Have you tried running disk cleanup, selecting the option for cleaning system files and making sure everything on the list is checked?

    Download: TreeSize Portable Free then run as admin to find out where all the space taken.
    In addition, download: TFC Temporary file removal tool then run as admin to delete all temp files. This program will kill some background processes to unlock temp files in order to delete, will need to sign out and sign back in when done.

    Thank you ever so much! All the temp files we're hidden away and was able to pinpoint all of them. Turns out it was a temporary file for all my video's!
