To Do A Disk Clean Up

(Windows Vista)

Go to the Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Clean Up

From there select 'Files From All Users On This Computer'

You will need to give your permission now, click Continue

You will now need to choose the drive you want to clean up, select the (C) Drive and click OK

It will now calculate how much disk space can be freed and a window will open showing you what unnecassary files you have stored in drive C.


Please Note at this stage

KB = Small files

MB = Big Files

GB = Huge Files


Select which files you want to delete. If you are unsure which files to clean out, check the sizes of the files paying particular attention to any that have a high number of MB (megabytes) or GB (gigabytes).

Usually, Temporary Internet Files, Recycle Bin, Temporary Files and dump files are the guilty parties so tick the boxes and click OK to start the cleanup.

You will see the progress of the cleanup, this will take a few minutes.
