My System Specs


Use software like Filetree to see hidden system files and see what exactly is filling it up.

You can use Accessories -> System tools -> disk cleanup for a quick and easy clean up of temp files, old restore points and such.

you can check how much space is being used by system restore by going to CMD and typing "vssadmin List ShadowStorage". This will show you how much space is being used and how much system restore is allowed to use.

I believe it defaults to around 15% of your HD space. My 150GB HD defaulted to 20 GB and it was near full!! Using system tools to remove all but the last restore point brought it down to ~2GB.

As mentioned, disable the hibernation file for sure.
