So, you have a full hard drive. You've learned from your pie chart that your hard drive is full. Now what? Here are some tips and suggestions for you. The first one is to remove unused software. Use the Add/Remove Programs in the control panel, and go ahead and start removing software and things that you're not using. Delete anything you don't need. Go through your documents. Go through your pictures. Go through your videos, and start to remove anything that you're not using or you don't need. Delete, and then empty your recycle bin when you're done.
Move important items to an external hard drive. They are relatively inexpensive now. You can pick them up at any electronics store. It's as simple as copy and paste, or drag and drop to move information around. Or use something like a cloud. Google Drive, Sky Drive, or One Drive, which is a Microsoft product, iCloud if you're on a Mac. It's a very, very easy process. You can buy another internal hard drive for your computer. That's more of a pain, especially if you're not comfortable taking the lid off your computer and putting things inside.
It's probably easier for you to buy an external hard drive, but it's certainly an option for those of you that want it. That's a good start for you. Spend the extra time to clean up and remove the stuff you don't need. It will certainly help you in the long run.
