This article will guide you to free up disk storage by removing the used space of uninstalled apps from Android and make it available to Windows. When you uninstall apps from BlueStacks, disk storage does not get cleared up in Windows. Please run this tool to free up your disk space.
Free up unused disk space by BlueStacks which increases by time as we keep installing/uninstalling the application.
All users who are unable to install applications due to the high disk space issue.
BlueStacks Versions affected

On installing multiple applications, the disk space used by BlueStacks keeps on increasing. This space is not entirely freed up even after uninstalling the applications.
In order to reduce the used disk space, you may run the Disk Compaction tool.
You can run the Disk cleanup tool from Settings -> User data
Type "C:\Program Files\BlueStacks\DiskCompactiontool.exe" in the search box as shown below and press 'OK'
- The Disk Compactor will be launched. Click on Continue.
It will close BlueStacks and start merging disk. It may take a few minutes to complete.
- Once done you will get a message to Launch BlueStacks. Click 'Launch'.
After performing these steps the disk space will be reduced.
We genuinely appreciate your choosing BlueStacks. We hope you enjoy using it. If you have any further questions, please contact us at support at bluestacks dot com. Thank you very much.
