Chapter 3. Health Care for PCs > Cleaning Your Disk

Cleaning Your Disk

Another tool that can help you recover chewed-up space on your hard drive is the Disk Cleanup utility. It analyzes the specified disk, comes back with a list of “safe” files to delete, and lets you select which ones you want removed.

The amount of space you can recover using this tool varies from a fraction of a megabyte to tens of megabytes, so the results will vary, depending on the way you use your machine (or perhaps the way you have used your machine in the past).
