Hi, my name is Luke, and this is how to find what files take up the most space. In Windows there's no easy way to do that without browsing through all the files in your computer. So what you are going to want to do is install a program called Space Sniffer. It's available for free on the internet. Simply go to Google, type in Space Sniffer and the first link that should appear is Go to the download section, download the latest release and install it. Once the program is finished installing, you simply run Space Sniffer, select the volume in question and hit start. Space Sniffer will immediately begin to analyze your hard drive and tell you what files or programs take up the most space. You can also see whether they is personal stuff like games, music and movies or whether it's important stuff like system files that you shouldn't delete. This way you can know what's taking up the most space. And that's it.
