Last night while many of us were prepping food in the kitchen, one young man was kindly sitting here at my computer desk making some sense of this mess.
Yes, my suspicions were correct, my PC is full. As Walter said, it had just run out of the fumes it was running on. LOL
111,065 images are currently taking up 66.8 GB; approximately 1/2 of my memory. I knew my pics used a lot of room, this camera records a lot of info. Another 57.6 GB are taken up by music. I had no idea music took up so much space! I had put most of my CDs on here so I could quickly play music whenever I liked. I may have to go back to using the CD player, except for those of which I no longer have the discs.
I am going to have to make executive decisions on what to delete.
But I want to quickly share with you a great program Walter downloaded for me that showed this information. VERY helpful!
It visually shows your computers files. I wish I knew how to take a screenshot of my WinDirStat window. But it shows every single file, labeled, in boxes according to size, so you can have a perfect visual of what is in your computer, sorted and organized.
This is not mine, but an example of how it looks.
OK, so I'm temporarily back in business, but have to eliminate a lot of files before having some security.
Thank you, Walter!
