Hi all ,
Hope you all had a good chrimbo , but i think my harddrive had to much turkey this year . For a good while now ive not been able to understand why the space has been getting less . So i ran a prog to see which prog has been eating my space and it turns out to be windows with a massive 29gb . Does anyone know whats going on and how to get my space back .
Thanks ,
civicr

What like $nyuninstallwmfd1h11$
Also a file called installer takes up 21.30gb
do you know what this is and can it be rid of.
