Hard Drive Filling Up? Check Chrome’s File System Folder

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

Even if you’ve got plenty of space on your hard drive, it’s still a good idea to make sure it isn’t being filled up with stuff you don’t really need.

I monitor disk space closely on my computer using various built-in tools like Windows Explorer but also third-party programs such as WizTree or the recently reviewed GetFoldersize. Whenever I notice a sharp decline in free space I investigate the matter to find out more about it. While that is sometimes easy to answer, for instance after installation of a large program on the system, it is surprising at other times.
