2. Delete hiberfile.sys

The hiberfil.sys hidden system file is in the root folder of the drive where the windows system is installed. The size of the file is approximately equal to how much random access memory (RAM) is installed on the computer. Hibernate mode use the hiberfil.sys file to save the current state (memory) of the PC, you can’t remove the file. So if you never use hibernate, than its time for you to get your hard drive space back.

You can easily disable Hibernation from Windows XP through the GUI using the following steps:

  • Open control Panel and access power option.

  • Find The Hibernate option.

  • Uncheck the box "Enable hibernation.

Reboot your PC and you can delete hibernate file.
3. Delete Recycle Bin
Sometimes we delete big files like videos and photos and automatically they stored on Recycle Bin. We usually forget to empty Recycle Bin and this is perfect time for you to empty it and maybe to free up some space.
4. Clear the Download folder

It’s time to check your download folder. Many times we download big files or program and after completing installation forget to delete the file. The folder goes big over the time. Go and do a fast check of you folder and for sure that you will free up some space.

In the end if you will need some other extra space for you urgent work it’s time to use cloud space. We recommend to download and register to the best cloud applications like Dropbox, OneDrive or google drive. Those will be your saviors for the short time.
