What or who occupies the space in partition C and how to recover it - video tutorial

Hi friends, in today's tutorial we will see in detail what we occupy space on partition C 7 Windows operating system, Vista or XP and how you recover. Every operating system uses and reserve a part of the free space on a partition that was installed to be used in various tasks such as:
- an amount equal to (or more) of the RAM is reserved on the hard disk by the operating system to be used as "virtual memory" pagefile or swap as it is also called in Linux.
- a quantity of 70-80% of the RAM memory is reserved on the hard disk and used for hibernation (if hibernation is activated)
- an amount of hard disk capacity (which may vary depending on its capacity) is reserved for the Recycle Bin
- 3% of partition C space is reserved for storing System Restore points
- 50 MB from partition C are reserved for internet explorer in which it will store browsing history, coockies
- Temp folder that increases in size due to the accumulation of temporary files that the operating system or applications needed at one time.
All these "reservations" on the free space on the C partition and our hard disk that the Windows operating system makes, can be adjusted, limited or even disabled. By disabling or limiting them, we can gain a lot of precious free space, extremely useful for those with an older PC who have a hard drive of a smaller capacity.
That said, I invite you to watch the video tutorial to see exactly how the free space limit of the C drive on Windows it aside for various tasks and functions.

      Somehow you made changes to your browser settings? And if so, where have you been, what you have checked, and unchecked? Probably start in private browsing, not the browser in normal mode. This happens to you for a reason. Things do not spoil themselves. Without giving us details, we can not help.

  28. good tutorial! I use BoostSpeed ​​Auslogic only paid version (I think and I know how to prosecutors), is much more than in tutorial is intuitive, blocks Services of the win, suggesting to be disabled, optimizes internet connection, etc, much better any little program like my opinion. Remove the floor with CClener. a tutorial would be welcome even if you have one or two with free software such as Auslogic drive of Defragmenter

    • Adrian Gudus said

      You have to use the administrator account, most likely you do not have full rights on the system that you are logged in as usual

    • florian said

      for those who cannot disable hibernation because the system does not recognize you as an administrator even if you are logged in as such (the message "you do not have permission to enable / disable Hibernate future" appears), you can try this:

      - click on Start> enter CMD in the search
      - right click on the CMD shortcut that appears in the window
      - select "Run as Administrator".
      and ready

    Hi,
    I have a C partition based programs and a partition 48 188 Gb Gb called D.
    In the C partition I only 2 GB free and although I cleaned and I defragmented disk, I got too much space.
    I have space in partition D of 187 Gb.
    My Asked Question: How can I transfer the space created after the partition D basic C to have more space in C and computer go faster!

    Regards,
    Constantin

    • Download Mini Tool Partition Wizard. See that you have a tutorial here on the site. Click on the partition you want to zoom in and Extend. From there I think you can handle. According to GB transferred from one partition to another one to show you real-time Part C and D. After size changes Apply and software you will invite you to restart your PC Yorkers changes to take effect. When the PC starts after resart, the boot process will make changes.

  40. It was very helpful this video tutorial, because decreasing the space system protection GB lost not knowing where we recovered lost. Thank You.

  41. Good evening. I have a misunderstanding .. I installed CyberLink, I watched a tutorial on reading a stick, I followed step by step the set and finally asked me to give him restart. He made the update, and gave restart, and then there appeared nothing to me .. How can I get windows?

A few days ago I installed the update from Windows 10 anniversary .A day I wanted to delete temporary files with the Disk Cleanup and noticed a 27,4 GB file size with the old version of my Windows.Intrebarea is whether this file can make a bootable USB for subsequent installation in case of problems that require reinstalling Windows-ului.Nu are a connoisseur in the iT so better ask who knows. Regards Razvan.
