How to free up space? New Laptop, but almost full? SSD problem? SSD storage almost full?

*Windows 10 users only!

After searching and searching the internet on how to fix my problem where my new laptop's SSD is full I haven't found a simple and proper until I've finally found a way to free up to 30 GB from your storage. I'm not sure but I think this conflict is only experienced by people who just bought new computers.


Search "Storage"

Select the option with the word "Storage Settings" beneath the word "Storage"

Scroll down to "Temporary Files"

Select "Temporary Files:

Check the box that says "Previous Versions of Windows"
*you check this box if you're not planning to go back to windows 8, 7 ,or Older

Check "Temporary Files"


Alternatively referred to as a foo file, a temporary file or temp file is a file created to hold information temporarily while a file is being created. After the program has been closed, the temporary file should be deleted. Temporary files are used to help recover lost data if the program or computer is abnormally halted.


Then click "Remove files"

This helped me A LOT and I freed 30+ GB from this process.
