Remove Service Pack Installation Files and Free Up Disk Space

We usually turn on the Windows update to automatically update the operating system. While this is a very useful technique, it also hogs up the hard disk space by keeping a backup of the service packs.

To clear up the hard disk space taken by the Windows Service Pack backups, we can use the Disk cleanup option. Right click on the hard disk in Windows Explorer and choose properties. Click on the "Disk Cleanup" option and you will see the space taken up by the "Service Pack backup files." Select that option and click OK to clear the space.
