Posted On November 20, 2019

If you have updated to the version of Windows 10 1909 ( 19H2), you probably noticed that the hard drive is taking up more space. You will lose about 8 GB to 12 GB of hard drive space . In this article, Danny2507Blog will help you regain all the hard drive that was lost, and guide to optimize the system cleaning to have 3 -5 GB more space. If you’re on Windows 10 version 1809 or 1803 and later update to version 1903 or 1909, you should use this method to get back the lost 8-12GB. As for the recent versions, you can use this method on Windows 10 1909 (19H2) to clean junk folders, junk files slowing down the Windows system, and will be optimized from 3 GB – 5. GB.  This tutorial will make use of a feature called Storage Sense that can be found on Windows 10.


Remove old Windows versions:

In Settings (Windows + Keystroke I)> System> Storage . Click on Configure Storage Sense or run it now

Scroll down to Free up space now to free up space immediately . This is a feature that allows you to immediately free up space if you have too little disk space. You can click the Clean Now button to have Windows do the cleaning too. It takes a few minutes for Windows to calculate the data to be deleted. And the hard drive will increase the amount of free space quickly. 

Note: Check the box Delete previous version of Windows .  

Remove all trunk files

Storage sense system also allows you to completely delete junk files in the system with Temporary files . Although my computer has used the feature Free up space now to clean up the old operating system, using this feature I have regained an additional 3 GB.    

  • In Settings (Windows + Keystroke I)> System> Storage 
  • Click Temporary files 
  • Check all the items, then click Remove files.

So with just two simple steps, you can get back quite a lot of lost space. Please share for everyone if you found useful.
