Windows 10 Tutorial: Disable Hibernation To Free Up Space

The hibernation feature in Windows 10 comes in quite handy sometimes, but it can also be quite a hassle for some users, particularly those that are low on storage space.

It takes up a lot of space — more so on machines with lots of RAM.

So, if you are finding yourself low on hard drive storage capacity, or simply have no need for the hibernation capabilities built into the operating system, then you can quickly and easily disable it via the command prompt.

All it takes is one, simple command.

To disable Windows 10 hibernation, right-click the Start button and choose Command Prompt (Admin) from the Power Menu that pops up.

Here, type powercfg-h off and hit enter.

Close the command prompt by clicking the close button or typing exit, and you should find that Windows 10 has freed up a chunk of space on your system. Usually on drive C, or wherever the operating system is installed.
