100% Hard Disk taken? Solve this problem in your Windows 10 already!
This time, compromised HDs are that they can be “defused.” Is your disk being 100% used? Follow our guidelines and solve this problem in Windows 10!
Attention: it is worth noting that the cleaning of temporary files results in the exclusion of all accessory data for the initialization of programs. The causes for full HD occupancy are varied – hidden folders or bugs in the restore process can result in disk unusable.
By Command Prompt
Type in the “Search in Web and Windows” command “CMD,” without quotation marks. Right click on “Command Prompt” and then “Run as administrator.” Then enter the code below:
Dism / Online / Cleanup-Image / ScanHealth
After completing the system check, enter this other command:
Dism / Online / Cleanup-Image / RestoreHealth
Restart your machine. Did it work?
Access advanced system settings
Disabling automatic system pagings can also solve the problem of total HD occupancy. Access the system settings from the following commands.
Type “Control Panel” in the search box of your Windows 10.
Find the “Advanced System Configuration” link and, in the open window, click on “Advanced.” Go to “Performance / Settings / Advanced / Virtual Memory (Change)”.
Did you find the option shown in the image above? Uncheck the “Automatically manage all paging file size for all drives” box. Still, in the same window, check the “No paging file” option. Finish the settings in “Set” and restart your machine.
Note: You can set a limit for the storage of paging files (such as up to 4 GB, for example). PCs with low RAM may have problems downloading data in system memory and therefore do not allow the execution of one or other application.
“Clean Boot” can diagnose any problems presented by third-party software. It is possible to manage the programs that are started with the system and to evaluate the performance of the applications.
Press the “Win + R” keys and enter the code “MSconfig.” Click “OK” and in the “System Settings” window, open the “Services” tab. Select the “Hide All Microsoft Services” option and click “Disable All.”
Now, under “Program Initialization,” open the “Open Task Manager” field. Under “Initialize,” select software not developed by Microsoft and click “OK.” Restart your computer.
As Microsoft, itself states, “This disables all third-party services and programs. If the problem is solved in this way, you can enable the programs and services that will be initialized with Windows, selectively, instead of keeping them all disabled. If the problem comes back after enabling the initialization of a specific service or program, the problem is exactly at startup of this software, and it is recommended to remove it. ”
Delete temporary files
Press the “Win + R” keys, type “temp” and click “OK.” Select the files listed by the folder and then click “Delete.” Again in “Win + R”, type “% temp%”.
Be sure to delete all temporary files that are not running also via “Win + R,” through the “Prefetch” code. Select the folders displayed by the address and delete the records that may be choking your PC.
Warning: By disabling automatic restore point creation, you eliminate the system-wide smart markup for emergency backup cases.
Right click on “This Computer” and select “Properties.” Go to the “Advanced System Settings” and on the “System Protection” tab, open the “Configure” window. Check the option “Disable system protection”; In “Disk Space Usage,” leave the pointer at “0%”.
