    I have checked the programs folder and documents folder and pictures folders but all together they don't add up to a gb so what is using up all my drive space? Screenshot (6).jpg

    I'm not looking to optimize anything. I just want a technique to display how much of drive is used for this thing and that thing adding up to the 20 gb that is used up.

    The My Dell Drive Space Manager will analyze the drive and tell you what's there. The problem is, I don't quite know how to access it apart from a Notification that the drive is getting full.

    Otherwise, I've used freeware WinDirStat similarly on other systems, and found it informative. WinDirStat - Windows Directory Statistics

    Ah, found it!

    My Dell / Checkup / Drive Space Manager.

    It is helpful, although I think WinDirStat more so.

    I think I saw that. If so it doesn't break down memory by folder, just 4 or 5 vague categories on a line graph. Is that the one?

    So anyway stripping off every program I loaded and putting all my files on sd card I have about 5 gb of free memory. My question is over time will things like windows update or dell update or windows mail files eventually eat up the remaining 5 gb leaving me with a brick that looks like a tablet? I do not wish to remove windows backup from the SSD.
