How to Detect Who Is Consuming Space on Hard Disk

disk-spacehard drivememorywindowswindows 7

My System Disk "C:\", where is installed Win7x64 OS has 80 GB. I hah last time free space 8 GB, after uninstalling some apps and cleanup Disk, BUT every day disk free space is varying from 8 to 1 GB, while basically from that PC it's internet surfing performed (no by me).

Concrete case: I see there 1 GB, after restart 3-4 GB, then after some hours again 1 GB, then it may be even less or again up to 8GB.

HOW TO detect who is consuming disk pace – maybe some tool, utility which collect statistics and show in real-time and historically who what consumed on Hard Disk?

Most likely your pagefile is set to automatically resize and is resizing due to memory pressure.

You can either go through the control panel to view the pagefile settings or open a Powershell console and use Get-CimInstance Win32_PageFileUsage | Select *
