Today, I realized that I hadn't backed up my iPhone since I got a new laptop. So I downloaded iTunes and when I went to back it up, it said that there was not enough free space on my computer. I got the bright (horrible) idea to move all of my files and pictures from my computer to a USB drive. Even after everything was off of my computer, it still said there wasn't any space, so I decided I was just going to put my pictures from my phone onto the USB instead of backing it up, because pictures is the only thing I care about. When I went to put everything back on my computer, pretty much nothing would copy over because my computer was saying there was no space left. When I looked at the properties on my C: Drive, it says there is no free space.
Nothing on computer, yet there is no free space.

It's possible your storage may be taken up by shadow copies. Let's try and clean them up:
- Press the Windows key + R to open a Run dialog box.
- Enter "cleanmgr" and press OK.
- On the dialog that appears, select your system's drive and press OK.
- On the dialog that appears, press Clean up system files.
- Select your system's drive and press OK.
- Click the tab labeled More Options.
- Under "System Restore and Shadow Copies" press Clean up... and then Delete.
- Finally OK and then Delete files.
After this is done check to see the storage space on your system drive.
