The size of your hard drive DOESN’T matter

The notification “Low disk space” that we mentioned before, is going to appear as a pop up message sooner or later, depending on the size of your hard drive.

One of the reasons why your hard drive might be running low on disk space availability is simply because of poor hard drive maintenance.

When you see an error like this, deleting files randomly isn’t the best solution, we have a better one!

Why not clean things up a little bit?

If you want to increase the amount of free disk space on your PC, and deleting unnecessary files is not the solution, try some of these:

* Don’t delete files randomly, rather choose the ones you don’t use any more and start deleting them one by one. You might also need to uninstall some of the software that you don’t use. Anything that you find useless, get rid of it!
