    I probably should have checked before I transferred all my files, but my 128gb Surface Pro is using more space that it should. I tried the built in windows disk clean-up app, but that only cleaned 4gb at most. Is there any other storage analyzer and clean apps up app that tells me what file or folder is taking up all my space? Thank you

    WinDirStat and TreeSize Free are both excellent portables for analyzing file space. Run them as admin so you can see Windows files too. I found that TreeSize was able to see some Windows files that WinDirStat couldn't. For example, TreeSize was the reason I was able to pinpoint restore points as the reason a work computer ran out of storage (on a 1TB HDD, which was insane). WinDirStat couldn't see whatever file Windows uses for restore points.

    The built in windows disk clean-up app isn't enough to completley clean up computer storage, try some professional tools that will help you , and you can try this tool I used before for a few dollars.
