    Checking disk I discovered a folder c:\Users\...\Temp\imgMnt01 with size 10Gb, see here:
    It looks like the image of an entire disk Win7+C:, probably in conjunction with NTlite, I used a long time ago.
    I suppose, if the Temp directory is not needed for running os.
    But it is not delete in any way: no programs like Unlocker, or MoveOnBoot, etc. Even in safe mode.
    I have admin rights, I am the only one on this PC.
    What to do? I cannot find any procedure, consult someone with a similar experience?
    Thanks for the advice

    See if this helps.

    Go here, then click the large blue "Download Now @ Author's Site" button to download and save TFC.exe (Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer) to your desktop.

    After it's downloaded and saved, close all open windows.

    Double-click it to load its main window.

    Click the "Start" button.

    If there are a large number of temp files or if there are multiple user accounts, the temp file deletion process may appear to freeze and may take a few minutes, so don't interfere with or abort it.

    After it's finished, restart the computer.
