Clear space clearing WINDOWS duplicate deletion
Everyone already knows that on Windows you have to do some maintenance from time to time, so we do not have problems or slow down the operating system.

Windows has some "brooms" and "rags", but that's not enough.
An operating system, to work perfectly, needs free space, a fast disk, removing unnecessary or duplicate files.
A fast disk must have at least 20% free space. It must also have defragmentation (HDD) or optimization (SSD) done; but these operations are done only after I have cleaned. Optimization and defragmentation are done at the end, because they are like "internal order" operations.

Aid for cleaning and space clearance.
When we take care of ourselves, of course, we also need some hopeful helpers. We need a team of cleaning tools and efficient solutions. Dirt must be removed and the order restored. Surprisingly, how clean is the cleanliness in the house with the computer.

1. CCleaner, it no longer requires any introduction. It's the application you can rely on to clean your windows, applications, registry, and remove your duplicates.

2. WinDirStat, which we presented on another occasion, is a software that shows us at a glance, visually, everything that is on the disk and what size it is. This way you have a "satellite" view of all the files that consume space, regardless of the cracks through which they hid.

Also with WinDirStat we found two files that occupy a lot of space.
"Hiberfil.sys" and "Pagefile.sys"
To disable hibernation, which is responsible for the existence of the hiberfil.sys file, use the command:

Powercfg.exe / hibernate off (to stop hibernation)
Powercfg.exe / hibernate on (to start hibernation

Download applications used in the tutorial:

CCleaner (the free version is very good)

      When using windows, we use Privazer a very good program in my opinion, but it was annoying with so many recent updates. WinDirStat as if you were presenting some 10 years ago, from the first tutorials we learned very much from you, from Adrian I learned and then worship Linux Mint (based on Ubuntu) every day I open to see what news you show to everyone when you can ask Adrian with the new Ubuntu LTS to make a videotutorial and his opinion about going to Gnome, Thanks

    2. Cristi, I knew that SSD does not need to defragment it because the data is stored on those memory chips, it's not like HDDs where the read head has to move on the platters from one side in another to read the necessary data.

    3. Good to find! I'm George and please tell me if I can delete the install.wim and install.esd files which each take up 2,7 GB. I upgraded from Windows 10 Pro v. 1809 to v 1909. I deleted the Windows Old folder which measured 27.2 GB and I also checked with WinDirStat to see if there are any more files that should be deleted. I have an OS on a 250 GB SSD. Before upgrading I had 198 Gb of free space and now it is 185 GB
      Thank you!
