Nowadays as time goes by, you may have stored a large amount of important files on your hard drive in Windows 10. However, the disk space is limited, so it is possible that your storage space is running out and then you get a low disk space message “You are running out of disk space on Local Disk [drive]. To free space on this drive by deleting old or unnecessary files, click here”. When receiving such a message, you need to take some measures to fix this error, otherwise it may appear frequently, which brings many troubles to you.
But sometimes you may choose to ignore this error or directly turn off it. However, it is not a good choice if your system partition C has such an issue, because the operating system need available disk space to ensure your computer can run at a good performance. When low disk space warning occurs, actually it tells you the hard drive has a bad health, so it is necessary to remove this error.
Once Windows informs you of the low disk space issue, perhaps you turn it off, however, this way only lets the message disappeared but the issue still exists. In order to solve this problem, here I summarize two ways.
Just like the message mentioned, you can free some space on this drive by deleting old or some unnecessary files. Windows owns a built-in disk clean tool which enables this work in Windows 10.
1. Firstly you need right click the drive which owns “storage space running out” issue and select “Properties”.
2. Under “General” tab, click “Disk Cleanup” button.
3. Next please choose the unimportant files or temporary files to delete for some disk space.
If this way only can helps you free a bit of disk space, low disk space warning still occurs.
In order to disable low disk space warning Windows 10 issue completely, the best way is to extend partition size. Some of you consider using Windows Disk Management to extend partition with “Extend Volume” feature. However, it often shows you grey option which is unable to use. You must ensure the unallocated space is at the adjacent right of the target partition.
Therefore, in order to solve Windows 10 low disk space issue effectively and successfully, a flexible and powerful partition and disk management software which is called MinITool Partition Wizard is a good choice. It can be used to resize partition, extend partition or shrink partition well.
Step 1: Download and Launch MiniTool Partition Wizard and then in the main interface, select the target partition C and click “Extend Partition” feature. Or you can right click on this partition to select “Extend” to solve storage space running out issue.
Step 2: Then you can take some free space from other partition. Here it is allowed to move the slider to ensure the size of free space.
Step 3: Finally click “Apply”.
In addition, also “Move/Resize” feature is also useful to increase partition size in Windows 10.
