  • Question

  • Both the Prgram Files X86 and Program files are taking up abut 10GB so I was wondering if I could delete one to make some memory room on my laptop?

  • Do not delete either of those folders. To free up space uninstall the programs you no longer use or want. To do so, go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Programs and Features, click on the one you wish to remove and choose Uninstall. Repeat it for other unwanted programs.

  • If your hard drive is getting full, why not replace it with a larger one?  Perhaps replace it with a SSD.  Your local computer repair shop can replace it easily.
