      But first you will have to Delete “GLARY UTILITIES”.
      Ccleaner, download here:

          A few things about Wiping..

          When you do a wipe, it just removes the program and it’s log files. The only way you can increase your disk space is to do a Wipe in the FREE space (this will take longer to do of course), this in turn will free up anything that is left behind. Another thing to do (if you have not done it already) is do a Defrag of your drive.

          Will it do harm to delete the file?.
          If your computer is running ok, then leave the file, if not (make a restore point first) delete the file.

          Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

          i don’t mean to be a pest but is more “free space” a good thing because when it was wiping the percentage of free space decreased. when i started it was 90% and now it is only 67%. which is best, high or low? thanks again.

          Free space issue……….

          by peconet tietokoneet ·

          In reply to Me Again

          Ccleaner (or any other hdd cleaner that you use(d)) occupies all available disk space by wiping data during Wipe Free Space process. When the process is successfully finished, all occupied space is freed.
          Windows sends low disk space notification just before Ccleaner finishes. You can ignore the notification message .
          If the free space has not got back after wiping, it means that Ccleaner could not delete temporary files for some reason. Please try to delete them manually or run Ccleaner again and let it finish its job. If you go into ?My computer?, and right click on your drive and choose ?Properties? you can let Windows do a clean up of your drive, this might help with your free space issue.

      Try this

      You can try this one – Uniblue’s product. Much effective base what I’ve experienced. You can try a free scan here http://www.liutilities.com/products/registrybooster/

      Also if there are any files on the Recycle Bin, kindly delete it as well. In that way, it will give enough space on your hdisk.

      Please let me know if it helps. Thanks.
