    User folder loop eating up hard drive space

    I installed Windows 10 a few weeks ago, but today I noticed that my 1TB hard drive only had 50GB left, despite it only being ~400GB full before the install. I ran Disk Cleanup and removed as much as I could, but it only cleared an additional 100GB. I then ran WinDirStat, and this is what I got:

    Is this normal? My user folder seems to be looping.

    As far as I can tell, the $OF folder is for backups. I've disabled File Backup, and deleted everything except for the latest file version (I would clear everything if I could), but it didn't make much difference. I'm really not sure what's going on.

    Hello hxt,

    Welcome to TenForums :)

    There is an extended disk clean you can run that might clean up more of your system. Please see option 2 of the tutorial below:
