Recently, I felt so angry since I received a warning that C drive is running out of space. And it is the first time that I received low disk space warning on C drive, so I have no clue what to do to solve the problem. I ran Windows disk cleanup utility to clean some temporary files, but I only get a little free space. And I attempted to delete some files in this drive, but most files cannot be deleted because it may have influence on the system and performance of computers. Thus, free space on C drive is less and less and Windows pops up low disk space frequently. So well, how to increase space in C drive without formatting? I really need help.
