Solved!

Low disk space HP_TOOLS E:

Probook 4740s
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello, I have been getting notifications from my computer that disk C: is running out of space, which I have solved. 

Today I started getting notificatiobs that also HP_TOOLS (E:) is full.  If I go to computer and open HP_TOOLS E:  I see this: 

Hewlett-Packard (folder) 

Hp_Tools 

HP_WSD 

HpBiosUpdate 

... If I enable it to show hidden folders, Bin and pagefiles.sys also appear.  Appearantly pagefile.sys is the one taking all the space (1,94 GB) on my E: drive  How can I solve this? Can this file be moved somewhere or deleted without harming my computer?

Normally pagefiles.sys is on C: Did you play around with your machine ? You can move it from E: to other drive. The following way is for Windows 10 but same for Windows 7
