The black hole of hard drives ?
show user profile  S. Silard
So , when I work I most recently get the message scratch disk is full , or the backup file is corrupt , and such thing .
Well it's because my C:/ is really full . But when it get's to be full ?


Now made some calculations .

So in C:/ Properties it's says it's 57.8 GB used space (It's 58GB) , so I had checked each folder to check where the hell goes that much space of memory :

So the folders in C:

some little shits that takes 0.25GB together and than

Program Files: 4.42 GB
Program Files(x86): 5.56GB
Program Data: 1.41GB
Windows : 14.8GB
Users : 29.2 GB [WOAH , You MAD !!!]

Well that's anyway together 57.8 GB , and it's the size on disc size , So i lose 2GB memory , maybe because the clusters , but now comes the deadly part .

Now I'm show how I find my "black hole" :
User (29.2 GB) > Silard (28.8 GB) > Download (11. GB [these little apps are deadly]) and there is also AppData(14.8 GB [Now what the hell is that ?])

So in AppData is :
-Local 14.66 GB

There I find buch of shit , name of folders you can't spell .

And there is google which is need 800 MB , why the hell they need that memory ?
Microsoft with 200 Mb (ok)
Apple (Wait a moment , what's that ?)
1GB floating in air


But after all I find TEMP with mindblowing 11.5 GB , and it's contains a bunch of crap .
Could someone tell me what's that ???? I even found screenshoots while installing max .

And again if someone lost it's here : C:\Users\Silard\AppData\Local\Temp

^^^^^RIGHT THERE ^^^^^^^

And Important , if my scratch disk get full while working , while is all of Adobe folder through that way actually just few Kb ?

Seems pointless I'm wrote all that stuff here , now I write to top of that post to check the end . Let's celebrate my longest post ever on maxforums .

Are you guys also haw this problem ? Do your TEMP folder have the same size ? Could i delete this ?
Thanks for help , if there's any !

yeah its pretty important to clear your temp folder regularly. I just run the Disk Cleanup tool every now and then. It tends to delete unused shit pretty well.

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

its safest to go to your start menu, Accessories, System tools and use Disk Cleanup
