Looks like you're trying to run Setup without extracting the files.
You need to create a new folder somewhere & extract the zip file into that.

Then run Setup.exe from that folder.

Once it's installed, run Fulldisk & click on your C drive on the left.



Wait until it's finished scanning & it will list your files sorted by size.
It'll give you a list & a pie chart.

To see what's taking space in a particular folder, just expand that folder by clicking the folder, like you would in Windows Explorer.

Once you know what's taking up all the space, you can decide what to do about it.

i finally figured it out. it's running a scan now. i didn't copy all the files from the folder to the new folder. i was just copying 'scandisk.exe. that's why it wouldn't open. you've saved me once again pete. :hug1

You should already be an administrator on your own computer.
Or are you trying to delete something online?


Don't know what happened to your duplicate file question, but here's the answer anyway:

Download, unzip & install.
You can search for all file types or just audio, or just video etc.

It will search for duplicate files - of which you'll probably have lots, like me.
Especially when it comes to mps3 - mainly Kiss.
If you have all the albums including compilations, you have songs on the original album & all of the compilations.
It's up to you if you want to keep all albums in their entirety or delete songs you already have elsewhere.

It's actually a variation of long-standing idea in IT & something we wish we could say to users who make changes without asking a tech & when it doesn't work, they come crying to us.

UF..... UF



U fucked it..... U fix it.
