My M17x came with a 109GB SSD, which serves as my boot drive. I also have two more HDD for games and programs. The boot drive only has a small amount of space left and I wonder if it can cause my computer to slow down. Are there other things I should look for? I haven't installed much on the SSD that's why I'm surprised why the remaining space left is now only 10GB. Any suggestions please?
Not enough space on boot drive for M17X
Small amount of free space in system partition can cause your computer to slow down. It also makes your computer vulnerable to crash or behave oddly. So, it is suggested to keep the system partition clean as much as possible.
For your second question, it is odd that you have only 10 GB space left despite installing a few software. In that case:
– Check how much space your OS has taken. You can do that by going to the properties of your 'Windows' folder in system partition.
– Check the space taken by your installed software. You can do that from the properties of the folder 'Program Files'
-If the space taken by those two folders seems normal, you should run an antivirus program to find and solve any malware related issues.
– You can also use software like 'TuneUp Utilities' to clean up your disk without losing any important data.
