    Default How can I clear my computer disk space?

    My computer system is windows8. When I try to download something or just run some programs, a warning would show up and said that I have low disk space. How can I clear my disk space? Also, I wonder a simple disk defragmentation could be enough.
    (Do I need to use a disk cleaner like Colorful Disk Clean? This program looks cheap and useful, or u guys have any other suggestions?)

    Why not just try the Colorful Disk Clean program ? So much nonsense

    From a Computer Tech:

    Rearranging the books on a shelf, only provides organization, not more space on the shelf.
    That's what defrag does. It rearranges the files on a hard drive to remove fragmentation, it DOES NOT provide more space.

    Now if you want a little more space, then get rid of:
    unnecessary programs
    Temp Files
    Temporary Internet Files
    Backup ( .bak ) files.

    Windows comes with its own Junk File Cleaner. (Disk Cleanup) It should be run in Extended mode, at least once a week.

    If you would do as we've suggested, over and over again, READ before you POST.
    We've discussed Disk Cleanup in Extended mode many times on this forum and other cleanup programs that can clean the junk out of your PC without rendering it neutered.

    Just in the last couple of weeks, I posted a link to a great little Temp File Cleaner program that runs fast and is 100% safe to use on all OS's from XP to 8.1.

    I gave it to a friend last week and he ran in on his four year old HP desktop. The program removed 38GB of Temp Files. I expect that's more common around the world, than the exception.*

    *I've asked the members of this forum, who have downloaded this program and run it, to report back just how many meg's or even GB's of space that were freed up.
    I've been running the program every day on my own desktop PC, since I first got it and it averages about 3-5 meg's of Temp files, daily.
    I'm considering just putting the shortcut to the program in my Startup folder, for a daily Temp File Cleanup.

    Here's that link again:
    https://app.box.com/s/ewsta7gpin2mp67lpua5

    This file is a .rar file, including the Program, a shortcut .lnk and an installer.
    Save the file to your desktop, unpack it and just run the .exe file. The installer only
    works on some PC's, depending on the level of 'permissions'.

    The report it gives at the end of run, will only stay on the screen for about 5-10 seconds before is disappears.
    So look quick.

    As for Disk Cleanup, search for it, elsewhere in this forum.

    good Luck,
    TM

    This guy has been self promoting this app across all the windows 8 forums. He/she has the exact same post content BUT with different user names. Which is a good indicator of a spammer. If not a spammer why use a different user name?

    I do that too. Use different names on different forums.
    But in suggesting the use of the little Temp File Cleaner, I'm not promoting anything but Cleaner PC's.
    Heaven only knows we need more CLEAN PC's.
    The program is FREE,, , no tipping allowed!

    But when someone joins the forum, and on their very first post they are pushing some program that we've never heard of, I too am suspicious.


    Colorful Disk Clean? You gotta be kidding me!

    The door is open and my boot is ready for action!
