I recently bought the HP Stream 11 and for some reason every time i use it the space on my C-Drive free space keeps on decreasing and since it is the stream model i only have 21GB of space. i tried: Disk Cleanup, emptying the recycle bin and arranging the restore setting, however its still decreasing. i lost about 4 GB in a matter of 3 days and the programs i downloaded are not as large as the space lost.

Welcome to HP Forums @cityking11,
Thanks for the post, I understand that you want to know why you are losing disk space on your Stream 11 notebook. I would like to provide my suggestion.
When you start using any computer for the first time and connect it to the internet. Windows update and driver updates will automatically get installed, which occupy a lot of space. Recommend you to try the articles below to overcome low disk space issues.
Keep me posted.

There is one more possible way of recovering disk space -- and that is using a system feature that was introduced in Windows 8 -- as described in this thread: http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/44351-winsxs-folder-component-store-clean-up-windows-8-1-a.html
I do this all the time, and although it does not always recover a lot of disk space, it does help shrink down the space used by Windows Update.
