    Hi, I'm posting this here because I can't create a user on Bleachbit's forum. I recently used Bleachbit to clean up my C:/ drive. After running Wipe Free Space, I canceled it because it was taking too long. Then my PC shows 300GB free instead of 150GB used. I opened Bleachbit and found Temporary files of around 300GB. I deleted that and now it's down to 250GB used. I need to get it back down. I tried searching for big files using CCleaner, but the largest it found was 26GB and was my Server 2016 VM. So how do I clean the rest of the Hard Drive so I can get it back to 150GB used? I'll keep trying to create an account on Bleachbit's forum. Please reply. Thanks

    Hi, thanks for your replies. I tried your links but found no big items. I'm guessing the Hard Drive space is fine and I must have added things on since the last time I checked. I installed Steam and Blizzard Apps so maybe that's the problem. I tried restoring using my first Ashampoo backup (Aug 10 - 150GB) but I can't restore my C:/ while I am Using C:/. I made a rescue disk like it said but I can't authorize it with OneDrive because of no Internet in BIOS or whatever it's called booting to it. So I deleted my Backup plan and Data and started a new one (250GB) I'll report back when it's finished and if it works once a week. Thanks for the help. I'll message back later.
