I spare 30G for C:\ for Windows 7. As time goes by Windows fill it up.

I do not know what can be removed. How can this be solved?

are you trying to say that you used to have 30GB of free space which filled up on its own? –  chmod Jan 12 '12 at 4:04
    
@chmod No. My c:\ is 30GB and Windows consumes more and more –  onemach Jan 12 '12 at 4:32

The c:\windows folder will grow, however you may want to check c:\users which is where your users profiles are kept. This includes documents, photos, application settings, temporary file etc.

This folder can grow at a faster rate than the windows folders, and it is usually easier to target what is consuming space. For example, if you have lots of music or images you can move them to a different drive.

I find windirstat is a good tool for identifying where space is taken up, and can quickly show large files at a glance.

Don't delete anything unless you are sure it is not critical.
