  • Use a program like WinDirStat to see which files are using up all your disk space.

    Then you'll have to figure out why your program is creating so many orphaned files.  It also depends how you are running your program.  Perhaps you are creating build logs?

    Let's figure out what has been created before we figure out how to remove it.

    Hi warlordz,

    Do you have followed Wyck's suggestion to find out what files created after you run your project? Please tell us the test result first.

    If possible, please share some code snippet or a sample project to help us reproduce your problem. It can help us make sure whether this problem related to your project.

    Best Regards,
