So, holiday begins and I nuked my computer with movies, games, etc. And its not almost full. But, the problem is I cant delete anything. I tried compression, but it likes turns 2.48Gb files To 2.47Gb files which isn't any useful. So is there any way I can make this work to save space?

try CCleaner first

Go through your installed programs and remove unused ones.

What are you trying to compress, if you are trying to compress files that are already compressed that makes no sense. i.e. most video files.


either get another HDD to back stuff up on, or you could recompress the video at a lower quality to reduce file size.

I already did that. Saved me tonnes of space.

Would try CCleaner then. Thanks!
