Since Valorant is now in closed beta, i've been afk farming keys overnight.

I woke up to a low disk space error from Windows.

My C drive had 2MB LEFT!!!!!! FROM 200GB IT WENT DOWN TO 2MB.

OVERNIGHT!

I don't know what's the culprit, or if it's just an error, but I had to delete PUBG just to normally open Chrome and Discord.

Click on this to see what program/files take up all this space.


I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

There is no major game/program installed. When I went by size, the Call of Duty 2 is the biggest file in there.

To gain a bit of breathing space you can run the Windows built in Disk Clean Up tool to free up some space. Check the options carefully, especially as it includes an option to wipe the default download folder.

 

Beyond that, I like using windirstat to visualise what is taking up space. It shows what folders are using up how much space, and you can then use that info to work out where the hog is, and from there how to fix it.

I restarted my computer to see if it was an error, but to no avail.

It's still at 38gb after I deleted PUBG.

Yeah, Riot Games. Go figure.

I have Riot Games installed on the D drive, but it filled up 200gb in AppData.

Could be because of the Twitch-Riot Games connection for the drops.
