Hard Drive filled after Crash

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

yesterday, I decided to let CCleaner wipe my free space. Unfortunately though, my PC crashed during the process. I thought that wouldn't cause any trouble until I realised that my hard drive has run out of free space. Before I ran CCleaner, I had about 500GB of free space available - now it's just about 10GB.

I have absolutely no idea how to fix this issue and couldn't find any helpful information on the internet... I really hope someone can help me :)

- Run Antibody's wizTree. And sort the results on filesize. Any files that are VERY large ?

- What's the size of the folder "System Volume Information" (There the System Restore Points are stored) ?

It can/will happen if there is a crash or power failure while WFS is running.

This explains why it happens and what to do now to get your space back:

PS. You only realy need to Wipe Free Space if your are selling on your computer or hard drive. (So that the new owner can't use a recovery tool to recover your deleted files).

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:
