How can I clean up my hard drive?

1.Start by deleting large, unnecessary files that you no longer need. Examples include programs that you don’t use anymore; duplicate or temporary files created by programs, such as browser cache and history; large multimedia files (e.g., videos and music); and documents that you no longer need.

2. Uninstall programs you don’t use anymore. This will free up space on your hard drive and reduce the amount of clutter on your system.

3. Disable startup programs. A lot of programs will automatically start when you turn on your computer. Reduce the number of programs that launch at startup to improve system performance and free up more space on your hard drive.

4. Use disk cleanup. Disk cleanup is a built-in Windows tool for getting rid of unnecessary files. It can help you quickly and easily delete temporary files, cookies, downloaded program files, and other digital detritus.

5. Defragment your drive. Over time, data can become fragmented on your hard drive, meaning it’s scattered across different parts of the drive. Defragmenting your drive can reorganize this data and make your system run more efficiently.
