Low Disk Space: C Drive is Filling Up
Hello all, sorry if this is crude, but i just joined.
Recently, about 1-2 months ago, my disk space on my C drive started filling up rapidly. I was not aware until 1&1/2 weeks ago of this when i got a warning from my computer. I have tried to delete unnecessary programs but i have around 50 programs downloaded, taking a HUGE 1.17 gb of my 112 gb C drive space. I have stopped system restore, and deleted all of my temporary files, and yet the memory is still (slower now) filling up.
Any ideas as to what may be causing this? Any remedies? i got this samsung laptop at Christmas, more proof that it isn't word documents or anything like that.
I would also ask that you dumb the terminology down, and extrapolate as much as possible please.
Thanks for your time

1.17GB today isn't a lot, and neither is 112GB capacity. Most computers/hardrives manufactured in the past 5 years haven't had a capacity that low, unless it's a SSD. You need a serious upgrade, or think about getting an external hardrive to save your files on. You can get a 500GB drive for less than $100 USD. You may want to consider that inexpensive option, which also saves a hassle of upgrading to a new hardrive.
