  • please download the program TreeSizeFree [1] and run it. It shows you which folders use all the space.



    Are you able to locate the folder which uses most space? If you detect the folder, open it and look if you can delete or move unneeded data.

    There are various things you can do to save some space, but
    essentially they are just stopgap measures; in a short time, you will
    likely find yourself back in the same situation.
     
    So what I recommend is that you do is buy a larger (or second) drive.
    Fortunately they are very inexpensive these days.
