One of the problems that we have always encountered as soon as we install Windows 10 for the first time, is a large amount of space that it can occupy, especially if we do not do a clean installation, but we do it on top of the previous version of the operating system that we had installed, be it Windows 7 or Windows 8.
The first thing we have always recommended from Windows News is to clean files through the option offered by Windows 10, in order to delete the files from the previous operating system.
But it is not the only way we have to free up space on our PC since on the internet we can find a large number of applications that allow us to free up space on our PC, space that is freed up mainly by deleting older files in addition to the cache stored in different browsers and large files.
Since the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft has been trying to make users less dependent on third-party applications. The first novelty that Windows 10 brought us was a kind of antivirus, Windows Defender, with which in theory and By making regular use of the internet, we can prevent our PC from being infected by threats.
The next update of Windows 10 will bring us a new integrated application, rather a function. This function will automatically take care of freeing up space on our hard drive without us having to intervene.
I have never been a supporter of this type of applications since, if we have knowledge at all times of the information we store on our PC, the application will not know, and offer to delete certain types of content, like movies or files that we haven’t played in a long time, something that can lead us to more than one displeasure.
Fortunately, this function and you can deactivate and configure it to suit our needs, such as, for example, not deleting the recycle bin after the statutory 30 days that any operating system holds the contents of it. It will also allow us what type of files or paths we want to exclude from the analysis that this application will automatically perform.
