We currently share development clients and so there can be many people that use each one. Several times some of those clients have filled their C: drives and I have been unable to find where it went. I checked user desktops, downloads, etc. However, I was unable to find anything.
Then, I ran across a simple command that can empty the recycle bins of every user on the PC and help you recover your lost disk space:
rd /s /q "C:\$Recycle.Bin"
Hopefully, writing this little tip here will help me remember and maybe help someone else that has lost disk space and doesn’t know where it went.
