Analyze Disk Space on Windows 10 via Windows Storage

Windows provides several tools to check disk space, but only Windows Storage can analyze disk space, while the command line can only check the total space. Windows Storage allows you to see how much space each disk occupies and analyze the space occupied by different types of files. However, it does not allow users to delete files. Deleting files redirects to File Explorer.

Windows Storage is a built-in feature located in Settings, and you don't have to download it again to use it. To analyze disk space with Windows Storage, please refer to these steps.

Step 1. Right-click on the Windows icon and select Settings.

Step 2. In the pop-up window, select System > Storage, and you can see how much space is available on each drive.

  • It won't hot image your drives or align them, but since it's coupled with a partition manager, it allows you do perform many tasks at once, instead of just cloning drives. You can move partitions around, resize them, defragment, and more, along with the other tools you'd expect from a cloning tool.
