    Hey mate, :)

    Are you able to use any of the other options to disable hibernate?

    You might see if restarting the computer may allow you to afterwards.

    I think i covered all four of them,
    registry manually
    download and merge reg file
    copy and paste powercfg -h off in elevated cmd
    via power options-plan.
    What process could be holding hiberfil to be accessed,as stated in TreeSize? (second snippet)

    Odd. You might try in Safe Mode to see if it may be able to disable then.

    Excellent thinking,restarted,didnt make it to safe mode (damn them SSD's are fast),gave it a shot whilst "wide open",no error,hibernation and its file gone.
    Great to have you by our side,thanks for the quick response and help,bless you Admin!

    Since I have 16 GB of physical memory, disabling hibernation saved me 12 GB of valuable space on my boot drive.

    Thank you!

    Thanks again.

    I wonder whether hibernation is always turned on by default on all new installations.
