My computer needed a re-install from scratch - including Windows 10 

I had been down to about 20 GB on a 1TB drive

Interestingly the Fortran install now had 71 components in place of the 63 from a reinstall and 55 from an uninstall 

I put everything and every program back and I have 400 GB -- where does all this garbage come from with time? 

Buy a larger hard drive and the companies will fill it
