    What's filling your drive

    This is quite handy open-source tool which can highlight folders with large items you may have forgotten about
    http://windirstat.info/download.html

    I do remember downloading Chrome OS twice now....
    And a complete spare version of windows.

    Recovered almost 15GB of space in total from my bulging laptop.

    Have a look at the folder tree near top left, it shows you how much is in each one.
    My desktop had 20GB in it which was mostly in a forgotten folder where I had some big downloads.

    And here was me thinking this was a thread about exotic cars and 4 wheel drives

    I am always worried about deleting things from the hard drive because usually about a week after I have done it I discover something I need has gone. I now have an external drive which has a back up of everything. Nothing gets dumped from it but computers internal drives get cleared out regularly, that way I can always go back to the external disc after those "senior" moments.
