  • Low disk space can affect negatively Windows performance, but the problem could be due also to many programs running during the system activity.
    Remove unnecessary files from your hard disk and perform a disk defragmentation.

    Bye.

  • Yes, for many reasons it can change the level performance of your computer. Some reasons:

    - How many more files in your computer, the defragmentation level increase and the read/write time increase in your hard disk too. Check the performance console with physical and logical disk indicators.

    - How many more files in your computer, your third-software anti vírus probably will works and will consume more processor and memory time (Scheduled scan, real-time scan and so for)

    - How many more files in your computer, increase the probabilities of any real-time processor are running.

    - Some softwares does checks (scripts or native system daemons) that can spend more processor time that usually do

    I recomend that you check all this indicators in performance console. The main idea is that memory - processor - disk are be balanced.

  • Hi,


    Low free disk space could cause system performance issue.


    Therefore, I would like to suggest the following:


    1. Uninstall some unnecessary programs.

    2. Delete files using Disk Cleanup

    3. Improve performance by defragmenting your hard disk

    Hope this helps.
