How to Free Up Disk Space on Windows 10 with Open Source Tools


How to Free Up Disk Space on Windows 10 with Open Source Tools




Windows 10 comes with a built-in tool called Disk Cleanup that can help you delete unnecessary files and free up some disk space. However, Disk Cleanup has some limitations, such as not being able to delete files related to Windows Update and Windows Defender, not supporting modern web browsers, and not having a preview option before deleting files.


If you are looking for a more powerful and flexible alternative to Disk Cleanup, you might want to try some open source tools that can do the job better. In this article, we will introduce you to some of the best open source disk cleanup tools for Windows 10 and show you how to use them.

To use BleachBit, you need to download it from its official website and install it on your computer. Then, launch it and select the items you want to clean from the left panel. You can also click on the Preview button to see how much disk space you can recover. When you are ready, click on the Clean button to start the process.


BleachBit has some advanced features that you can access from the menu bar, such as editing whitelists, changing preferences, running commands, and switching to dark mode. You can also use BleachBit as a portable app from a USB stick or similar device without installation.
