    Hello,

    I have a few work computers that appear to have taken up a lot of space. However, not a vast amount of personal/user created files/folders or deletable temporary files. And also the apps and games (however, some are required to work some other applications). But, the vast majority seems to be the system files (which is never a good idea to erase any of).

    Which should I do?

    Oh, yes. Sorry. It's Windows 10.

    Jmatt,

    IN the future please display your images directly in the post rather than linking to imgur or any other hosting site.

    Also, it's not necessary to post multiple sources for downloads. Preferably, always use the link to the author/vendor's site as the source whenever possible.

    I do not agree at this stage, with the use of Wise Disk Cleaner or indeed any other cleaner - other than the included Windows Disk Clean Up- until we know what the actual problem is - if indeed there is a problem

    You say
    Is this taking up of space a problem - for instance are you running machines that have very small drive capacity
    I recommend you send the basic system information for one of the computers in question

    run the utility please and then copy and paste to your reply the information in the box with the white background
