I've just finished installing a very large mod order (Nolvus) on F: drive. OS drive (C:) is now in the red. Only OS there. Now C: is in red zone. Need to free up space. I keep recycle bin empty. Removed everything from desktop except shortcuts. Downloads folder kept empty (always), documents folder -nada.
Web search not help = confusing, contradictory, and inaccurate info. . How do I get non essential stuff off c:? Like maybe the extra restore points, or old windows updates, yada? Whatever... Thank you all.
Possible a big temp folder.
hit win + r and type %localappdata% , hit enter and aim for AppData\Local\Temp. And remove the stuff inside the temp folder (and also the bin afterwards).
Maybe your temp is full, empty the folder can free up space.
You can also check c if u have an "windows old" folder (when upgraded to w10 from an older os).
Also worth a try to run "disk cleanup" on c. to remove old updates and thigns like that.
Other method the little tool "treesize" it can detect easily huge files and will show you where those are located.
But would start with the temp folder.
