How can I clear up unnecessary clutter from my hard drive to speed up my system?

1. Uninstall unnecessary programs – Take some time to review your installed programs, and uninstall any software that you no longer use or need.

2. Delete temporary files – Temporary files are created by many different types of programs, and can take up a lot of space on your hard drive. Use a program such as CCleaner to delete these files.

3. Reduce the size of your hibernation file – Windows will create a large file on your hard drive to store your current session when you hibernate your computer. You can reduce the size of this file by changing the settings in your power options.

4. Defragment your hard drive – Over time, data can become fragmented on your hard drive, resulting in slower performance. To prevent this, regularly run a disk defragmenter such as the one built into Windows.

5. Backup your data – Make sure that you have a backup of your important data, so that you can easily restore it if something were to happen to your hard drive.
