    disk space


    I delete a lot of programs and yet disk space is still 75% full. Why after dumping so many programs does that happen?

    Programs don't usually take up the most space on a PC, it's usually the data that uses the most space. It is probably pictures, videos, and things like that taking up most of the space. There is a great program for determining what files are taking up the space on your HD, it's called WinDirStat. I'll post a link to it below.

    WinDirStat - Windows Directory Statistics
