Hi, so i recently just bought a new laptop for gaming with a 256gb SSD. I have noticed under storage that its split into 2 drives. (C: and D:).
The C: drive is the one using all the space atm and is currently using 65/155gb (i have nothing installed). This is also after i performed a disk cleanup of the drive and removed my windows.old file.
When i go in further its the System&Reserved thats taking up most of it.
Further again and its the system files thats using 47gb. It says these files help windows run and my PC wont work without them.

Anyway im a little concerned that ive lost so much space before I’ve even got into using the Laptop and am wondering what could be using it up.

Any help is HUGELY appreciated and sorry for the long post!

Thanks :)
