    Windows8 disk space issue


    My computer system is windows8. When I try to download something or just run some programs, a warning would show up and said that I have low disk space.
    The best effective way to clear my disk space/ How can I clear my disk space? I also wonder a simple disk defragmentation could do something. Many thanks.
    Ask: Need any Disk cleaner?
    (Do I need to use a disk cleaner like Colorful Disk Clean[http(ignore)//apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/colorful-disk-clean/2972d7f6-b902-44d1-999a-8f4e49db8923]?
    This program looks cheap and useful, or u guys have any other suggestions?)

    In Windows, each drive should have a tool that can remove all temporary files.
    Otherwise, you can look if there are any old files/programs you no longer need.

    Defragmentation will re-arrange the files, not re-move them.

    What size is your HDD?
    Do you only have the C-drive?
    If you have more drives: how big is it? Do you install everything on it?
