Question

O bytes of Memory on PC...HELP, PLEASE!

Hello,
I keep getting low disk space warnings. I cannot open programs, and cannot use certain programs, etc. When I delete something, that amount of storage is not added to the computer. I can delete 1G of memory and it will still show 0bytes of storage.
I do not know what to do. It's like when I delete something, that space is immediately taken up.
PLEASE HELP, THANK YOU

Clarification Request
Storage is not "memory."

Try to keep that clear.

1GB of free disk space won't help in today's PCs. I've found that sometimes I can boot to safe mode to do more cleanup. Since you didn't share much about the PC, let's hear more.

There are some viruses that fill disk space but you didn't ask about virus issues.

Answer
remember to also empty the recycle bin

Also go to Search, and set it to scan for all files over 10 MB in size, and see if any of them can be removed safely.

Do you have any security software installed on the computer?

Do you have any security software installed on the computer? Have you made any changes on the computer prior to the issue?

I would suggest you to run disk cleanup to reduce the number of unnecessary files on your hard disk to free up disk space, clear the temp folders. and scan your computer with Microsoft Safety Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.
