Two tips on how to free up a decent amount of space on your SSD

Here are two tips that could free up a large amount of space on your SSD (basically depending on how much memory you have installed).

1) Decrease the size of the Windows page file. This will free up disk space usually equal to the size of your total memory (if you leave it at default settings).

  • Right click聽Computer聽and then select聽Properties
  • In the left pane select聽Advanced system settings
  • In the window that opens click the聽Settings聽button under the Performance聽box and then select the聽Advanced聽tab.
  • Click the聽Change聽button and select the drive where you page file currently is (typically defaults C:)
  • Select聽Custom size聽and fill the initial as well as the maximum size of your page file to be 1024MB which is more than plenty if you have more than 4GB of RAM聽
  • When ready click聽Set聽and then聽Ok (it will ask you to restart to confirm changes, then you will get your space back after restart).

2)聽Disable hibernation -聽will free up disk space exactly the size of your total amount of memory (this one takes effect instantly)

  • Click the聽Start聽button and type "cmd"
  • Right click on cmd and select "Run as administrator"
  • In the opened command prompt window type the following "powercfg 鈥揾 off" (without quotes)聽and then press聽Enter

After doing these two tips I freed up a total of 30GB on my SSD, going from 60GB left to 90GB left.

You don't need a large page file if you have more than 4GB of memory typically, since most people have 6-16GB these days. It's pretty much not a necessity. Some people say you can even disable the page file completely but there are some programs and functions that require it so it's best to allocate a small amount of memory to it. You also don't need hibernation enabled because it's mostly a feature for laptops.聽

Hope this helps free up some space on your SSD.聽 :)

Additional "Space-Freeing" Tips:

There is 1 more tip that you forgot, which is deleting old restore points & limiting restore points storage size:

~ First limiting the restore points storage:

  • Right click computer and click on properties.
  • Click on system protection on the right side.
  • Under protection settings, select your main hard drive then click on configure.
  • Your max usage slider should be set to 50% by default, change it to 10-15%,聽 if your current usage was larger than the 10-15% that you just selected, windows will some of the restore聽 points until it matches the max usage limit "it will delete older ones first".

~ If you want to further delete the older restore points and only keep the recent ones, then do the following:

  • Write "disk cleanup" in the search box in start menu.
  • Click on more options tab.
  • Under system restore and shadow copies, click on clean up, and all of the restore points except the recent ones will get deleted.

BiG StroOnZ, maybe put his tip in your post, just so people are able to see it without scrolling down.

nice tips, usually I just keep dumping my data onto more and more hard drives and never sort through it.

Hadn't noticed I had hibernation on. BAM. Another 24GB space suddenly appeared.

Thanks!

Try modifying the page file (following directions in OP), that could add up to another 24GB.聽

Click the聽Change聽button and select the drive where you page file currently is (typically defaults C:)

Is it possible to move the page file from the OS drive to another drive e. g. from an SSD to an HDD (less important data tomb)?

Is that fine? I tried putting 100 minimum but if ever Windows would crash it indicated that it wouldn't record the reason why it crashed.

Can you explain why?

Because there is no reason to have it lower than that, it won't benefit you. And having it as the same number reduces fragmentation. Not that fragmentation is really a big deal on SSD's, because it doesn't really impact performance. But doing it this way guarantees that won't happen.

So you're assuming I'm going to defragment my SSD?

No, I wouldn't ever defrag an SSD as it is not really necessary, but SSD's do fragment, just it doesn't impact performance as much compared to an HDD. But by having the values as the same number it reduces the chances of fragmentation.

there is 1 more tip that you forgot, which is deleting old restore points & limiting restore points storage size:

-First limiting the restore points storage:

+ Right click computer and click on properties.

+ Click on system protection on the right side.

+ Under protection settings, select your main hard drive then click on configure.

+ Your max usage slider should be set to 50% by default, change it to 10-15%,聽 if your current usage was larger than the 10-15% that you just selected, windows will some of the restore聽 points until it matches the max usage limit "it will delete older ones first".

-if you want to further delete the older restore points and only keep the recent ones, then do the following:

+ Write "disk cleanup" in the search box in start menu.

+ Click on more options tab.

+ Under system restore and shadow copies, click on clean up, and all of the restore points except the recent ones will get deleted.
