What steps should I take to free up disk space?

1. Check for and delete old, unnecessary files. Use a disk cleanup tool to search for large, outdated, and unnecessary files and remove them.

2. Uninstall programs or apps that you no longer use.

3. Move documents, music, photos, and other type of large files to an external hard drive or cloud storage.

4. Empty the recycle bin.

5. Disable hibernation if you don’t use it.

6. Compress large files.

7. Clean up system files by running Disk Cleanup.

8. Defragment your hard drive.

9. Install drivers and software updates. Outdated drivers and software often take up a lot of disk space.

10. Enable TRIM for your solid-state drive (SSD). TRIM helps keep your drive clean and running quickly.
