thats the one l was looking for, just couldnt remember what it was called.. managed to free up 3gb so far, might have to uninstall a few odds and ends until l can afford like a 200gb SSD.


edit:

actually was only using 700meg l cleared it before creating a new point to see where the space was used. seems the majority is in /windows the rest is in program files and program data folder.

I moved all data off my 300gb E drive to another drive for temporary safe keeping until I can swap out this drive for a larger 2tb drive. Odd thing is the 300gb HDD still shows that there's 69gb of used space. But all files on this drive have been deleted so where's 69gb of data? I checked off...
