I have noticed before that disk space is slowly eroded over time for no apparent reason. What is eating the free disk space? Confused | :confused:
Some programs insist on cluttering your C with temp downloads and log files; search the "ProgramData" folder in the root - my WinPC is 3 months now, and already it has 5Gb there. One of the offending ProgramData subfolders is "PackageCache" (1.7 Gb) and there's NVIDIA taking 1.87Gb in their private "downloader" folder there.

There's another downloadfolder on "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download" which has a few MB in it. If your machine was older, there's some minidumps you might want to get rid of, but I don't think there's a lot of them on a fresh machine.

Makes me wonder though how much download-folders are present on the drive Smile | :)
