Remember that thread Mir@k made about deleting files

Postby Glacial Expanse » Mon Mar 04, 2013 3:34 am

So I decided to clean my computer up and HOLY SHIT. I went from 294 GB free of hard drive space to 380 GB.

FUCK YEAH, this is awesome. I deleted pictures, music, games and shit. So I deleted like, 86 GB of space, which is again, awesome. It feels so good.

Yeah, cleaning up your pc keeps it in good shape too.
Imo people should clean their pcs with the same gusto they do their houses.

Advanced system care and Game Booster for constant deletion of obsolete files, auto-defrags and streamlining. MalwareBytes for the best virus protection ever.

My computer's pretty awrite. Too bad I'm basically polishing shit by this point to make it look like Chocolate. I haven't replaced it in like 5 years...

I need to do a deep clean up, but college man, not a good time to do that when you got important junk crammed into your computer.

My computer's fairly new, so there's not much for me to clean, other than some of the shit that comes pre-installed.

I dunno what I'd use the space of a terabyte harddisk. Having approx 500 gigs forces me to occasionally weed out in the shit I don't need anymore.

The only thing I need to worry about space on now is my C:/ drive since it's an SSD. Don't have to defrag it at all ever though.
