2 at least twice a week make Cleaning house (or partners will vostrii: P). Vacuum, wipe dust, throw empty cigarette packs and order DVDs. But equally important is to clean houses to make Cleaning and computers. Temporary files, Hibernation files, memory dump files. All this occupy space alms in computers, in addition performance decreases them. Next you will say how to get rid (free: D) of these headaches.

- Create a file batch (Delete all files, including the latest one week)

2. Disable and Delete the Hibernation Files

When the PC enters hibernation, Windows save data to files located on your hard drive, so after "awakening" to PC reopen all applications which were running before hibernation. These files occupy a space equal to RAMSite. I mean, if you 512MB RAM, files will 512Mb, if you 2GB RAM files will have all 2GB.

If you do not use hibernation, you can delete these files, saving space that you can deal with things more interesting. :)

If hibernation is enabled, before deleting those files, need to disable. Open a Command Prompt (Start Menu-> Search-> type cmd-> Enter) and type the following command

powercfg-h off

close cmd and hit Enter. Hibernation will be disabled.


To delete the hibernation file, open disk Cleanup (Search using all your Start Menu), select the partition where Windows is installed and click OK. Displayed after scanning the list, check Hibernation File Cleaner and click OK again.


3. Disable Memory Dump Files

When the PCs 'crack' (single restarts or put in advancing much-too-known Blue ScreenSites), which creates so-called dump files. Since these files can be viewed causes for which computers clacheaza, but usually no one checks these files. Or those who do are very few. And the computer crashes more often, the more space is hard. : P

To deactivate Memory Dump files, Entered the control Panel, type Advanced Search bar in the upper right corner and select View advanced system settings. Click on Settings from under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck Write debugging information drop down and click OK.
