Video Tutorial – How to Clear Hiberfil.sys Files In W10

Tutorial Level – Intermediate

If you are running short of space on your C: Drive and are using a Solid State Drive, here is a way to clear some extra space.

Hibersys files relate to the computer going into hibernation. If you do not use this feature and normally just shut down or restart then this is safe to disable.

Typically you should regain anything between 10 – 20 GB of space on your SSD.

Note: It’s always worth creating a manual Restore Point before carrying out any system changes. Instructions to do this also at the the end of this short video below.

The elevated command line is…

powercfg.exe -h off


Here’s the embedded video tutorial with a step-by-step on running this command.
