Hi, my name is Luke, and this is how to find out what is using space on a hard drive. Typically in Windows, we don't get to see exactly what's using space and what's taking up too much space. So what you're going to do is install a program called Space Sniffer for Windows and it's free. Simply go to Google, type in Space Sniffer and click on the first link. It should be the link. Then go to the download section and click on the most latest release. Once it finishes downloading, open it, run Spacesniffer.exe and then select the drive that you want to sniff the space on. Press start, the program will immediately begin to analyze all the different things on your hard drive and tell you what space they are taking up. This might give you a good indication as to what you want to delete to make more room. And that's it.
