[Solved] C disk space lost ~50GB after uninstalling Visual Studio
Hi, my C disk mysteriously lost ~50GB. Any suggestions to restore that are very appreciated. Thanks a lot!
Before it happened: My laptop runs Win7 64bit. About 80G of C disk (146G total, SSD) was occupied .
How it happened: I tried to uninstall Visual Studio(Community Edition) to free some space (~10G), but instead of my gaining 10G, C disk is occupied more. I thought it's because I didn't fully uninstall Visual Studio, so I went into control panel, diligently uninstalled a dozen of programs that came along with the Visual Studio. I stopped to check how much space is freed, but was surprised that I lost more space: 28G free out of 146G instead.
What I tried: Disk cleanup. Not helping. I tried restoring the system to a point before the uninstall. Except losing several programs installed after the restore point, nothing. WinDirStat shows hibernate.sys and pagefile.sys only occupying ~15GB. Nothing weird.
