I don't know how to get to the chkdsk log. Last time I ran it, I saw it running, it rebooted the machine, and that was it. Where is the log?

On start menu button, select run, type powershell.exe  In powershell window,  copy and paste this exactly as shown, it will place a log on your desktop.

 

get-winevent -FilterHashTable @{logname="Application"; id="1001"}| ?{$_.providername –match "wininit"} | fl timecreated, message | out-file Desktop\CHKDSKResults.txt

 

I showed you here how get the log for chkdsk

No you do not have to do one from an automatic one, since the other worked successfully, then you know it is working. Keep the ones you have untill know all is well and delete them make just one manually if you like, up to you.

As you know it does grow and use up disk space. When Configuring system restore it should be set to around 9-10 GB, about 2-3% . Once it exceeds it, the oldest restore points will be deleted to make room, unless you increase the percentage of space for it.

Wow! It was set for 30%. I reduced it per your instructions.

 

I'd like to free up some disk space on my C:. Is there a routine that will show me the largest files (Outlook has a similar feature to find large emails)?

 

Thanks.

System restore in configure, where you see the percentage below that in parentheses should be no more then 9.53 GB usually the default about 2%.

 

Odd to be 30%. Hope read and wrote that right, why i explained again. How it got that way.

 

As for knowing where hard disk space went and finding large files, this is a good free Program  http://www.jam-softw.../treesize_free/

 

I have Pro version, i like it, more to it then regular Windows explorer.

 

Welcome :spoton:

I like that Tree Size program.

 

I think I'm all set. Do you have any other advice for me before we close this issue?

 

Thanks.

Yes someone else recommended TreeSize to me because something was taking up disk space on me once, could not find out what it was. This program helped me then, still have it today.

 

Are you having any other issues, how is the system running now? Did you ever look into more of those startup items to disable or decided to keep them enabled ?

 

Do not have to do anything here, this post will remain open to help others who read it. Your Welcome, hope you also learned something throughout this.

Specifically, it happened once a few days ago, and it happened once earlier today. And I'm on Firefox probably an hour a day, maybe two hours.

But is this whatever web pages you try ? Maybe if not a conflicting extension maybe a program. Starting to wonder what else for you to try unless you did not try everything listed in most help articles or put something back to way it was.

 

Some malicious web sites will claim you need to update flash player or it has crashed, not saying this is it, but i know i read about it.

 

Even though does not always happen, i am sure it still would be annoying to you. Not sure yet what other things you can do or try.
