Why is my memory suddenly occupied?

Hey guys uuh soo I have a new problem here

Yesterday I was almost entirely positively sure i had 9,87 GB of free memory

but now I have 1,87 GB free? My trash bin is empty... So how do you explain this? I barely even used my computer today too.

What could be happening?

Also, is there a way to see like, a list of things that recently occupied space on my PC?

I even cleaned up a lot of memory yesterday so this is weird . If you guys could help that'd be great
Thanks!

Hi acelegacy,

I'm sorry but are you talking about RAM or Hard-drive space?

To see RAM usage, either right click taskbar -> click task manager(third from bottom) -> click on performance tab inside the task manager. Or click windows key and search for resource monitor and click the memory tab within.

To see Hard-drive space, either click the windows explorer icon on the taskbar -> on the left click my computer!

Hope this helps!

Cheers
Boris

Please complete this tutorial by Golden so we can have a look.

I would also recommend going to the Avast Forum and do a search.
Avast has been known to cause this problem of using up hard drive space with restore points percent changes.

Also, use WizTree portable free to see where space is used.
Post a WizTree screen print if you have questions.
