Checking on your disk usage in Windows 10 (and beyond)

In this day and age, running out of disk space should be hard. I mean, if you haven’t got at least an 1TB hard disk in your computer, isn’t it about time to consider an upgrade?

However, we can still be surprised by running out of place. How can you figure out where all that storage capacity went off to?

In today’s video we teach you two ways to check your disk usage. The first option uses a new option that shipped with Windows 10. It’ll allow you to get a rough idea of what’s eating up your disk space.

For a more detailed look into your hard drive, you we highly recommend using WinDirStat. It offers more details on both the folder level and the file level and helps you identify who’s claiming all that space. It’s usable in Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7 and, if you’re really be hind the times, probably works on Windows Vista and Windows XP.

You can see both of the options explained in our latest video.
