How to manage the contents of your hard drive

Kathleen Atkins

When Lounge member Moon1130 asked for guidance about when to expand/increase his hard drive, his fellow Loungers in the General Windows forum approached the question differently than he had.

With 68 percent free space in his C: drive, Moon1130 had some time to digest the Loungers’ advice.
