The Windows operating system can be very messy. By default, it leaves lots of temporary data just laying around on your hard drive.
To clean this up and free some much needed hard drive space, follow the following steps:
1. Click Start
2. Type Disk Cleanup in the search box and hit Enter
3. Ensure that all of the checkboxes are checked and click OK
This will free up the amount of space calculated on your hard drive. BEWARE: Data in the Recycle Bin will be deleted and can't be restored.
