Windows 11 offers many ways to free up space when the hard drive on your computer has low available space. Some of the easiest methods include using the Temporary file settings, Cleanup Recommendations, and Storage Sense features. The “Temporary files” settings allow you to delete files not critical to running Windows 11. For instance, leftover files after installing a new version, upgrade logs, error reporting, temporary Windows installation files, and many others. “Cleanup Recommendations” is a feature new to Windows 11 that automates the process of identifying the contents you can delete to help free up hard drive space on the computer, including junk, unused, large files, and unused apps. “Storage Sense” is another feature that can help you free up space automatically whenever the drive is low on space.
