A quick summary of this answer: don't get rid of any partitions other than the Lenovo (D:) partition. You'll regret it sooner or later. As pat2015 said in the comments, don't touch the EFI System Partition. That would be... pretty bad. As for the OEM partition, you could probably safely remove it, as it should be a customized recovery partition, but it's ...

Is it possible you're actually constrained on the space on the system hosting the containers? The docker containers can't have more free disk space than the host backing them, right? Perhaps you're using more of your free space at the docker host than you realize?

120 GB should be plenty as long as you are not storing your video or music collection on there. However, if the price break is less than $30, then just get the bigger drive (my 2 cents). Good luck

It is great that you are new to linux, but it is too general question, and lack of details. Wich Linux do you want to install? What other programs you want to install within? Programs for Windows and for linux are roughly same size*. Not Linux and Windows!! So if you can go on Windowos with 240gb - Windows instalation size , you can go with 240GB - Linux ...

It depends on what programs you install, but in general Linux system files take up much less space than Windows. An Arch Linux base installation is easily much less than 5 GB (I don't remember precisely, but that's a good upper bound), while in my experience Windows installations have been in the range of 20-30 GB, which is certainly much larger. Now of ...

When you stopped Defraggler, it might have left some buffer data behind while it was trying to defragment a very large file. When you analyzed the drive again with Defraggler, it counted the buffer data as part of the drive as well as all of the fragmented free space (you probably ended up with less contiguous free space after the partial defrag since it ...

Yes, it's normal to have 8.1 system files occupy 32GB and there is not much you can do. You'll need to use external media, or online storage for personal files. SD card slot might be nice option. WinSxS is NOT the culprit, it's been discussed much. In short, nearly all system files that comprises the Windows OS since Vista are hardlinked against content of ...

The free space and total size shown on a volume icon in Computer is accurate. However, selecting all items in the volume's root only shows the total size of items to which you have NTFS Read permissions. This is true even if you have enabled Show hidden files and folders. Common examples of folders you can't access by default: C:\System Volume ...

This problem is not because of a domain policy. It is because of a windows update that broke symbolic links. this thread helped me understand the actual problem. After uninstalling the update, and using a command prompt to do this command: fsutil behavior set SymlinkEvaluation L2L:1 R2R:1 L2R:1 R2L:1 I was able to copy the top folder to a local USB drive ...

By default, Process Monitor stores everything, including both visible and invisible events (hidden by filters) in virtual memory. This is also clearly indicated in the status bar: “Backed by virtual memory”. To drop invisible events completely, you can activate the “Drop Filtered Events” option in the “Filter” menu. Depending on how strict your filters are, ...

On Server 2008 R2, My C:\windows\temp was empty. I tried deleting cbs logs and a 2.5 GB cbs log kept returning, so I checked C:\windows\temp after attempting to delete the log and a large number of .dmp files had appeared there. Deleted these and the log file is now gone. Disk space has recovered. (Mine kept returning even after deleting it.)
