If you’re guilty of keeping every file you’ve ever been given, you may need to wipe some files to free up some computer space.

Here are a few handy ways to save on disk space:
- SpaceSniffer is a good tool for figuring out which files you should delete, especially ones you haven’t used in awhile.
- CCleaner is another useful piece of software, although this will aggregate files you don’t need anymore – such as bits and pieces left over from old profiles – and delete them for you.
- You should also make a disk defragment occur every week, as this will save up space and make your computer run faster.
- Search for “Disk Cleanup” in the start menu on a Windows machine and you’ll be able to do a simple wipe of your disk, removing unnecessary files.
