    Before the W10 upgrade, I had 3/4 empty harddrive, now it shows its dang near full, why?
    Did the W10 updates eat all the empyty space up:mad::confused:

    The above image was AFTER a complete defrag.

    If you don't plan on reverting to Win7, you can delete the old Win7 folder. Run Disk Cleanup to remove it.
