    My dear friend

    If you want to free some space in C drive then you have to use the two software which delete the unnecessary data means which is not useful.Those two software are:

    1.C-cleaner
    2.Registry Mechanic

    And if you want to some more space then delete the temporary files which are not useful and also delete some applications and software which have no need.For that you have to go to control panel and then after remove or uninstall the program or software.

    And if you want some more space then my friend you have to go for updation of RAM i.e.update RAM upto 8 Gb which is satisfied.

    Thank u!!

    Re: How to free some space in C drive

    Hello Dear friend,


    The first obvious step is to delete any unnecessary files. Some types of files such as video or music files tend to be very large and can quickly consume all of the hard-disk storage of a smaller hard-drive. To help make regaining hard disk space easier, Microsoft has put a Disk Clean-Up Wizard in Windows XP.

    =>> Then Deletes Downloaded program files - these files are automatically downloaded by Internet Explorer and can be deleted safely.


    =>> Deletes Temporary Internet Files - Internet Explorer uses these files when accessing the internet. These files can be safely deleted


    =>> Deletes Offline Web Pages - Pages that are stored for access while you are not connected to the internet. - These files can be safely deleted


    =>> Empties the recycle-bin - When you "delete" a file, it's not really deleted (see our permantly delete files page for more info). Emptying the recycle bin frees up a large portion of storage space in your hard-drive


    =>> Deletes temporary files - temporary files are created and used by Windows and can be safely deleted


    Other options


    Depending on what Windows options and software you have on your computer, you may see other options to create more free-space on the disk.

    =>> Find the My Computer icon on your desktop, or in your Start Menu double-click it to show the hard drives installed on your PC

    =>> Find your primary hard drive, or the disk you want to regain space on (usually the "C:" drive) and click it with the Right mouse button


    =>> On the small menu that pops up, choose Properties


    =>> On the General tab, click the Disk Cleanup button (note that you can view the amount of free-space on your disk on this screen)


    =>> Choose the options for disk-cleanup and press OK






    Hope the information will help you..

    Thank you..!!!

    Re: How to free some space in C drive

    generally c drive is the letter path used for windows installation drive

    if u are having a heavy load on c drive better choose disk clean up option system tools which is in accessories of start program in all windows but in windows 8 advance search options are available just type system tools and choose settings category them u can see system tools and choose disk cleanup

    2. some times it is based on the old windows installation if u are having old windows installation files with "old.windows" it will generally take 12-14 gb for installed system file which were old disk cleanup removes the unnecessary programs which u are not useful to us

    Re: How to free some space in C drive

    Some simple things:

    1. Empty your trash can
    2. Find and clear the several "downloads" folders on the box. Microsoft has one, and each non-MS browser you have has another.
    3. Clear the caches in your browsers, especially browsers you seldom use.
    4. If you have created any "restore points", delete the ones you're no longer apt to roll back to.
    5. Open "Programs and features" and delete applications you are no longer using.

    ================================


    Hi,


    See,the C drive basically consists of the system files.
    Hence all the files are important.
    If you by mistake delete any of them,then the OS will simply crash.
    But if you have installed any other software in C Drive,then you can delete it in order to free up the space.

    Bye!

    Re: How to free some space in C drive

    hiiii...
    If you want to free up disc space from any drive of your computer, you can run Disc cleaner.
    For this, right click on the desired drive,then in properties,Select disc clean up.
    The program will automatically detect the unwanted files and will show you in a new dialog box.
    You can then delete those files just by clicking ok.
    Another thing you can do is that you can delete the temporary files(will not free too much space).
    press windows key+R.A run dialog box will appear.Type %temp% and press enter key.
    A list of temporary files will open up which were being made temporarily during some installations.
    Delete those files but don't try to delete those files, which ask user permissions.
    And

    If you have installed new windows 7, a folder named as "windows.old" will be there in your /C drive which is of no use.
    You can delete that to free up upto 3 GB of disc space.

    Re: How to free some space in C drive

    The best way to free unnecessary spaces in your c drive is "Disk Cleanup". It removes unnecessary captured space from your drive without affecting your installed programs and thus can be really helpful for you. To do the same, navigate to Start>>Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>Disk Cleanup. If you are facing any issue then open my computer by pressing "Windows key +E".You will see the list of all drives.Right click on C drive and select properties. Under "General" tab, you will find "Disk Cleanup" button. Simply click on it and follow the on-screen instructions. If you have installed unnecssary applications then uninstall them. You can also use softwares like ccleaner to clean your computer regularly.
