Re: NVDA, A Space Hog

Joe Orozco

I'm also at a loss. There are folders in there that don't seem to
belong, like that recycling bin folder. When I get home from work I'll
have to share the list of folders and files to see if someone can help
me compare the file directory they see on their system. I remember
creating a portable version of the application when I reloaded the app
on that particular laptop, but that should not create bulk over 80
gigs. Hell, even JAWS does not take up as much space as I thought it

Just for laughs, I checked my own installation of NVDA on a Win 10

Not sure why yours is claiming 80 Gigabits of valuable HD space.

I was looking at my C drive. It was showing over 200 GB of space used.
I thought that strange and assumed Windows must have bloated at some
point. But as Brian pointed out, the OS does not take up much space,
so I started poking around and damned if I didn’t discover NVDA alone
was hogging up 80 gigs all on its own. There’s a recycling bin that
alone was taking up 40 gigs. The library folder was also heavy in
data. Can someone explain why this might be happening? I don’t want to
take an ax to things without understanding why it might be doing this.
Thanks for any info.
