    Where does the data go when you delete a file ?

    I think that is why my PC is slow. I think it is full of old deleted files. The PC feels heavy too. I think a
    PC is like a 10 year old pillow. The pillow gets 10 lb heavy due to bed bugs. PC gets heavy due to old files. I looked everywhere and do not see them. I took a flashlight a looking in my PC. I think the
    data may turn to dust. I will ask my Doctor.

    • Most of the time in windows, it goes to the recycle bin. You can go there and empty it to free up disk space. You can also defrag your hard disk. When files get deleted, sectors of your hard disk get free'd up leaving scattered gaps. Defrag consolidates the gaps so your disk drive does not have to work as hard. You may not have enough memory in your computer. This will be evident if the disk light always flickers even when your computer is not busy doing anything useful.

      hope this helps
