Quickly find and delete useless files from your computer with WinDirStat - video tutorial

Hi friends, today we will clean the computer and we recover all the space used by files useless, we use WinDirStat application we show a chart on what we have in PC and allows us to erase what we all so easily.
With the tools in Windows is hard to figure out what the computer gather dirt, even with such applications CCleaner can not free space on the hard disk, These applications are excellent cleaning temporarelor cleaning but for more advanced management of disk space to use anything else.
WinDirStat is a great open source tool to manage files and folders on hard drives, USB sticks or memory cards, WinDirStat is a very soft because we look and size of certain folders so that Windows does not it is (do not know why).
With one look we will find the files that consume more space and so we can eliminate wherever they are located, can be in the C partition, the other partitions or hard drives, USB sticks or memory cards .
On Windows you have to go from one folder to another and look like crazy large files with WinDirStat do this without entering into any folder, even the application interface you can delete anything you want permanently (can not be restored) or trash (can be restored in case of mistakes).
Careful:
First of all, I advise you to make a backup, I recommend one of the Our tutorials about backup if you can not do that.

          Yes, and addictive tips is a site with interesting articles that I read, just as are many others.
          Again, we do not take over but video tutorials articles with much more detail than can provide an article.
          The guys who write on these sites where you think you breathe?
          Off the record:
          Look at the date the tutorial was published on any android giga 50 after going on addictive tips and look at it when it was posted.
          That is, each must draw from somewhere, I invented neither we nor they these softwares.
          About how we do our job as much to say, perhaps one day I will make a video about this item.

  9. Hello,
    I want to inform you first that the site http://www.softpedia.com are available to download all Windows versions 7 with integrated SP1 (Search: Windows 7 SP1 Included).
    Secondly, I want to introduce you to a software that I think is worth doing a video tutorial, it's about WinAIO Maker Professional v1.3. The program is a small tool with which you can practically put together in the same DVD the installation kits of several versions of Windows 7 (Ultimate, Professional, Home Premium, Home Basic, Enterprise, Starter - both 32-bit and 64-bit variants) . Basically the software is able to use Windows Imaging Format files (WIMs - which are located in the sources directory of the Windows 7 kit). This disk image format introduced with Windows Vista allows you to create multiple installation kits that use the same set of files. For the program to work properly, you will need to have the .NET Framework v3.5 and Windows Automated Installation Kit 2.x or 3.0 (WAIK) installed on your system.

    PS: 7 Ultimate Windows installation kit with integrated sp1 (available on http://www.softpedia.com ) Includes the following versions of win that can be managed 7 WinAIO Maker Professional v1.3: Ultimate, Professional, Home Premium, Home Basic and Starter. If you want to add in the installation kit and an Enterprise version can be integrated SP1 char if you have this kit. I tried and it works, install Windows Enterprise SP 7 1 even if the initial kit was not integrated enterprise sp1 WIMS provided the first file to be loaded at the WinAIO Maker Installation Kit Windows Ultimate 7 SP1.

      As long as you do not give details about the computer, operating system, what is going on, who can help? Tell the shortcomings of detail. It may be necessary to reinstall Windows, most likely.

  24. Hi, excellent idea of ​​tutorials, I would ask you to make a tutorial with the topic "How to make a video tutorial", or at least give me an address for a software product that solves this problem. Regards

  25. this is the message: ARE trying TO USE THE INSTALLER IS IN COMPLETE OR corupted. THIS COULD RESULT OF A DAMAGED THE DISK A FAILED OR DOWNLOAD A VIRUS.IT MAY SKIP THIS POSSIBLE TO CHECK USING THE / NCRC command line SWITCH

      Open a command prompt: Start => Run, type cmd and press OK or Enter. In the command prompt write chkdsk and wait to see what it tells you. Most likely you will have to restart to check. There would be another version with a regenerating HDD from Hiren Boot CD, but if you don't have them with your PC, I don't think you will be able to do anything, it can ruin more.

  27. Hi… .I scanned my pc with windirstat and it shows me in partition C a large yellow rectangle of 3,5 Gb
    called unknown, and the partition D another big yellow rectangle 1,6 GB. I tried to erase the idea
    to my great recover space on hard, but I managed. I do not know what these large spaces because
    when I click right, do not let me open them. We calculate the space occupied on both partitions and indeed
    I miss about 5 GB.Am tried RidNacs program and gave me the same result.
    What do you advise me to get my that space called Unknown.

    I recommend that you acknowledge what was said in a previous tutorial. Write up the SEARCH box in the sidebar, top right: What or who occupy our space and how we recover the C partition, press Enter and you will find the tutorial

  29. Alexandra said

    Thank you very much Cristi, after watching the tutorial I managed to identify 7 gb hidden on the dir. C - a few days ago I downloaded data and pictures from a gmail account in Outlook and, although I deleted what I downloaded and deactivated that account in Outlook, 7 gb more appeared on C: - I tried to escape of them using cleaning programs: CCleaner, WinUtilities, IOBit - but in vain.
    WinDirStat immediately identified an archive in Outlook that I otherwise could not reach! It's not the first time you've helped me and I always thanked you only in my mind (and probably many do the same) - now thank you in writing and I wish you success!
    Alexandra

  30. I try WinDirStat to see what I used before SpaceSniffer (freeware) and I thought excelent.Chiar'm curious to see if it is easier to use than SpaceSniffer WinDirStat from what I see in the movie above seems more cumbersome.

  31. I have a question 😀 😀 how to make a back up? that is, what it means

    • WindowsCluj said

      Backup is the process of copying the data in order to be restored in eventualitaea the original data is lost. There are many backup programs, some that start and botabile CD. It backs up the entire operating system and if something bad happens, you can recover exactly the same as when run before all installed software.

  32. many ms is very useful application, I got rid of any 5 gb from some programs and some games we have uninstalled and with this program I was able to delete them all. ms over again

    Hello,
    I bought a TOSHIBA DESKTOP LX 830 107-25.11.2013 on.
    For a while the shutdown appears
    TASK WINDOWS HOST and then closes the revocation although I checked and all programs were closed.
    Now time to shutdown appears only TOSHIBASERVICESTATION block closure and disconnected from the network can stop him.
    I specify that I bought with license 7 premium windows
    Please give me a solution.
    Thank you!

    • One solution would be to uninstall Toshiba Service Station or PC before closing to go into Task Manager and forced to close the service.

  34. Extraordinary!… From 8,45 GB I reached 28,1 GB free on partition C, running the WinDirStat application I searched so much and I did not understand where any 10 GB free disappeared and now I got more than I hoped!… I I did a BECKup before (the first one of my life!), I cut emotions but I succeeded I followed exactly your instructions
    Thank you very much and I am very happy that you exist !!!!

    • Adrian Gudus said

      I also recommend our tutorial on "who occupies our space in partition C" which you can find using the search box on the top right.

  35. I still didn't understand how to select all the files with a certain extension and delete them. however, 90% of the explanations are childish. you don't really know what the program does. but don't give up: insist. you seem to have a rested mind….

  1. […] To load the phone memory. A similar application exists for the desktop, it is called WinDirStat and we have a tutorial for it here on videotutorial.ro. With Memory Map we can only delete those files […]
