When it comes to storage space on our computers it is important to keep on top of how much space you have available. With the release of Windows 10 Version 1903, Windows now reserves 7GB of your hard drive space, meaning that keeping up on your available storage space is even more important. In the past this has been tricky, as there has not been a simple way of doing this built into the Windows operating system. Previously Windows provided Storage Sense, a great way to start tracking your storage space. With Version 1903, Windows updated the Storage Settings to allow you more options that help in managing your files and in freeing up space.
To access the storage settings on your computer (running Version 1903 or higher) follow these steps:
Figure 1. The updated Storage tab of the Settings windowl.
Figure 2. The Temporary Files section of the Storage tab of the Settings window.
By keeping on top of the files on your system, you will have the space you need for important files you want to keep.
