Hello All,
I am currently attempting to use an Android emulator on my laptop. It now will not open due to insufficient storage space. I cleaned out all of my junk files and even got rid of some unwanted apps. I then noticed I have an "other" folder that is the bulk of my storage space and I cant see the files to delete them. Please help.

Uninstall the Android Emulator since it is useless with insufficient storage space.

Bro. How is that helpful? The obvious whole reason I want to empty some of my D drive is because I WANT to use the emulator. I just need someone to tell me why i have a folder entitled "Other" and why can't I see the files in said folder? How do I delete the dang D drive files I dont need? Ive even compressed them. Only freed up 1.3GB.

Can you show us a screenshot of where you see this "other" being listed? Are you using a program that is showing you this, if so what program?

Still not sure what program is generating that, can you tell us what you using to get that?

Download TreeSize instead, it will give you a directory by directory listing that you can browse and see exactly what is what: https://www.jam-software.com/treesize_free/
