Analysis of the space - not such a difficult task as it may seem at first glance. Of course, you can analyze how and how full your hard drive, and using a standard Explorer. But the best for this purpose to use a special program Disk Usage Analyzer, which quickly performs disk usage analyzis and give a clear statement of what files are taking up the most disk space. With this utility, you can see how much space this or that folder to decide whether to move it to another drive or an external storage device, or just remove it.
In addition to folders, which are created by the user, and folders that are created automatically installs the software, there are specific and personal folders. They are built into the operating system Windows. Examples of such personal folders are My Documents and Desktop. For each user PC operating system creates your personal folders, so Desk one user differs from the desktop of another user, even though the computer they have one and the same.
A very important feature of personal folders is that they are all located on the system disk. From here follow some important nuances. Often, users save documents, music and even movies directly to your desktop so that they could then find it easy to open. At the same time there is a danger of losing important documents, photos, videos, located on the desktop, if you fail the operating system or an urgent need to reinstall. In addition, a habit to keep everything on the desktop results in a very rapid filling of the system drive as a system drive is given not so much space.
It should make it a rule to keep in the desktop folder only shortcuts to documents, folders, photos, and movies, and the file is not stored on the system drive. And, of course, it is not necessary to store important documents on your desktop, especially if there is no back-up copies. Some users to avoid these problems, move the folder to the Desktop system disk to another disk of the PC. This should be done with caution, because you can break your system. This is especially true running Windows XP, since there will need to make corrections to the registry. In Windows 7, it becomes much easier. It should be through the "Start" button to go to the profile, and to find the desktop folder. Then right-click to select the properties of the folder and open the Location tab, seine Desk folder in the user-specified location.
