I recently uninstalled about 30 GB worth of games from a ssd drive to free up space, but after uninstalling the programs my computer still tells me the space is being used. When I look in the drive, there is nothing there that's taking up the space. I even tried running searches for large files and hidden files, but nothing appeared. There's nothing in the recycling bin, and I tried clearing system restore data and doing disk cleanups.
This is a ton of space, so I would really like to know how I can get it back. Thank you.
Wow, thanks everyone. Reser, I think our computers are expressing similar symptoms for different issues. My config folder wasn't nearly as big as yours. Also, I have an AMD graphics card, so I don't have any Nvidia drivers installed.
Turns out my windows folder is taking up 17.8 GB, and when I went through all the subfolders I found out that the biggest culprit was the WinSxS folder, which was taking up about 10 GB. Apparently that folder is supposed to get big, and there's not much to be done there.
Having done a more thorough search of all the folders, I've found out where most of the space has gone. However, there is still 9.2 GB unaccounted for, which is a much smaller issue than 30 GB, but still a significant chunk of my SSD space that I'd like have available.
