Should I now delete backup files already stored on my SSD C Drive? Should I use free space on SSD C Drive?
On both my desktop and laptop, my Windows 11 C drives are on a 500 GB SSD. My D drives are on a 1 TB HDD.
A Microsoft Support Engineer noticed that I backed up 300 GB of family videos on my C drive. Windows 11 consumes 200 GB. Thus my Desktop SSD has 100 idle GB. She DISadvised adding these family videos to the C drive, which allegedly will lower the SSD's lifespan and slow Windows. Finally, she advised deleting these family videos. Alas, I couldn't understand her explanation because she spoke English with a NONstandard accent.
As these 300 GB are already stored on my SSD, should I now delete these 300 GB? Or should I let sleeping dogs lie?
Again, Windows consumes 200 GB. I feel like I'm overlooking or squandering the spare 300 GB. Should I use this 300 GB by backing up files?
