I recently cleaned up an old "7" computer and got rid of over 40 gigabytes of junk in the windows update folder alone. It also had a windows old folder since the OS had been reinstalled. I don't remember how large it was, but it was a biggie.
Open disk cleanup, click on clean system files. Put a checkmark by everything on the list. Especially "windows update cleanup" and " Windows old" if you have it. You'll have to scroll down to see all of the list. Now look at your hard drive properties. It will look a lot better.
P.S. I know this will work on 7,8, and 10. Will probably work on XP and Vista.
P.E.T.A (People Eating Tasty Animals) I'm deplorable and proud of it.

A very timely idea. Thank you. I recently got rid of a bunch of junk on my computer's hard drive. I was amazed at some of the stuff I'd forgotten about or that was just cluttering up the place. The stuff that I absolutely want to keep, but don't look at much got shipped off to an external "archive" drive.
