    Ah! Okay, thanks for that. I suspect this is a one-time event caused by a sudden shut-down or system freeze, a wayward update, or something else. So I would check your disk space every so often to make sure it does not happen again.

    That said, free disk space on your boot drive will always be a concern because you have such a small drive there to begin with. So even through normal creep with program updates, temp files and such, free space will slowly disappear. Windows needs lots of free space just to operate in. Many recommend at least 30GB at all time and I think that is reasonable.
