A full local disk on your machine can affect your computer's performance. Here are a few things you can do to free up space.

  1. Empty your Recycle Bin! Deleting items does not immediately remove them from your computer's hard drive. Right-click the Recycle Bin and permanently delete the files. 
  2. Uninstall old programs. Weed through your list of programs/applications. If there's a program on your computer that you rarely use or haven't used in years, why keep it installed? Free up that space.
  3. Archive old files. Backing up your files is a great idea all the time but, if you don’t need the files on your local machine, save them to an external device for safe keeping while freeing up space on your drive.
