Hello, the latest problem that I am unable to solve is related to my local disk C. Last night the drive had around 27Gb of free space (total 80Gb) but today when I turned on my laptop, the drive had just 3.5Gb of free space! This nearly gave me a heart attack! I opened the C drive and checked all the folders inside (both hidden and readable), it showed a consumption of 54.2Gb. So, I should have free space around 24.8Gb!
So, please please help me solve this problem!
Thank you.

Hello,

Try this 1

1) Click on below hyperlink "CCleaner" and download the file.

CCleaner

Install it --> Open the application --> Click on "Run Cleaner" button.

2) If you have kept your laptop in hibernation mode then you need to remove

those files. Let me know the Operating System you are using.

Good Luck

Hello,
Try this 1
Make sure you have followed Step 1 also
Click on Start --> In search bar, type cmd. When "cmd" appears in the search list, right-click on it
and select the option "Run as administrator".
"Command Prompt" will be opened. Now enter the below command
powercfg -h off ---> Press Enter.
This will disable hibernation and will remove its file.
Good Luck
