My system:

-AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six Core Processor 3,5 GHZ
-RAM: 16 GO
-NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960
-Hard drive (931 GO)
-Windows 7(yes i know that the support ends soon i will eventually replace it)

-I am entirely sure that i probably have 450 GO of actual data installed on my computer maximum
-Seems like there is some type of corruption on my Hard drive,wich makes it loose space every now and than
-When i do a clean up of the drive,it indicates(error reports,about 300+GO),but when i actully click to delete all the files to be selected,it deletes everything except those error reports.
-I have basically been running with around 0 and 30 GB for a while now

-My work schedule makes it a little inconveniant to leave my PC to a computer shop and i would prefer repairing it myself.

-Make a back up of your system,buy new hard drive and re-install or(no,you might end up reinstalling the corruption or whatever that is on the new Hard Drive)

-I am not looking for the best of the best performance as of right now,but i would like to record and play without no major problem as i would like to keep my current PC for at least a year before considering getting a new one.I already play on low graphics and i don't mind not being able to host raids until i get my new PC.

-Based on the linked videos,i would like to know if it's worth it to also get a SSD drive(480 GB) and run Vindictus on it.Or for that matter,should i consider using 2 SSD instead of re-buying a hard drive and would 2 SSD(480GB each) be enough to take everything.

-Or,is there a way that i overlooked to actully fix my current Hard drive from the corruption.

-Or whatever solution would be the best

    Nvm that

    I have been using Avast as security since i got this computer and never refreshed the license.The program could detect the problems,but not clean them since i didn't pay for the license after it expired.

    I simply downloaded C Cleaner professional for a 14 days free trial.It detected a lot of trackers and i indeed had about 800+ GB of files to be cleaned.Now my PC is at 813 GB free space out of 931 GB.
    I usually use right click on the hard drive icon and use that sort of cleaning method,but it never succeeded to remove the problematic files,that's why i end up thinking there was a major problem with my Drive.
