Free up drive space in Windows 10. If your PC is running low on storage, here are a few ways to free up some drive space.

Delete files with Storage sense

Windows can automatically free up space by getting rid of files you don’t need, like temporary files and content in your recycle bin. Open the Start menu and select Settings>System>Storage.

*To have Windows delete unnecessary files automatically, turn on Storage sense.

*Select Change how we free up space. Check which files you want Storage sense to delete automatically.

*If you prefer to clean up files manually, turn Storage sense Off and click Clean now.

Uninstall apps you don’t use

*Open the Start menu and select Settings>Apps>Apps and features.

*Search for a specific app or sort them by size to see which ones are taking up the most space.

*When you find an app you want to delete, select it from the list and then select Uninstall. If you don’t know what an app is, google it. If you are unsure about what the app does, leave it installed.

Move files to another drive

If you have photos, music or other files that you want to keep but don’t use very often, consider saving them to removable media, like a USB hard drive. You’ll still be able to use them when the drive is connected, but they won’t take up space on your PC.

*Connect the removable media to your PC.

*Open File Explorer from the taskbar and find the file you want to move. Select the file, go to the Home tab, and then select Move to>Choose location.

*Select your removable media from the location list and then select Move.

Free up storage space on your Mac

MacOS Sierra and later can save space by storing your content in the cloud. New tools make it easy to find and remove large or unneeded files.

When storage space is needed, files, photos, movies, email attachments and other files that you seldom use are stored in the cloud automatically. Each file stays right where you last saved it and downloads when you open it. Files that you’ve used recently remain on your Mac, along with optimized versions of your photos.
