If you are using Windows 10 you no longer need to download utilities to clean the garbage off your hard drive or to figure out what folders are using the most disk space.  Windows 10 Storage Sense is the free integrated disk clean up utility from Microsoft that does the heavy lifting for you.

Storage sense can also be used to make space on your drive by removing files that are backed up onto OneDrive.  We have a separate video on that process HERE. COMING THIS WEEK
