If you have been a Windows user for just one day, you know that it eats up most of our disk space. And what’s really annoying is that, all the applications, songs, movies or any files that we download, tend to take more space than normal. We start thinking that a virus is downloaded every time you download something from the internet, but that’s not true. It’s in the blood of windows to eat up disk space and it forces other applications to eat more and more disk space. The solution? Reduce the hunger and let them starve.
