If you’re wondering what have been taking up space on your hard disk, then you have come to the right place. In today’s article, we’ll show you how to get rid of unneeded files from your computer.
First of all let’s find out what’s hogging your hard disk. We recommend that you download SpaceSniffer. Once you start it up, it will map your hard drive, and shows big files and folder in your system. SpaceSniffer comes with a user manual that shows you every neat stuff that you can do with SpaceSniffer.
some of our favourite ones are: filtering temporary files …
… or finding files that we have not touched for more than a year; they are usually good candidates for removal.
Among all the files, Pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys stood out in SpaceSniffer; They occupied six GB of our hard disk.
In a default installation, Windows creates a page file (pagefile.sys) that Windows uses to hold part of a program or memory that does not fit the memory. Microsoft recommends us not to remove this file – even when you have lots of memory. However, we can remove hiberfil.sys from our system, and we wrote an instruction on how to do it.
