How To Remove Hiberfil.sys And Free Up Some Space
Trying to spot where all your hard disk space has gone? Tracked it down to a hidden file called hiberfil.sys and wonder what it is?
Do you use System Hibernate ever? No? Good, here’s how to disable it and claim back some space.
Open a command prompt as an administrator and paste in the following command:
powercfg -h off
That’s it! You’ll notice the hiberfil.sys file has now gone too!
Got Windows XP? Then it’s just as easy, simply go to Control Panel –> Power Options, and then find the Hibernate tab and untick the Enable Hibernation pidget and click Ok.
