The hard disk "C" of my G750JS is full , 90 out of 95 GB, but I am not able to discover why. When I check in the disk I only find 50 GB of stuff (including also hidden files). In the last 3 days I noticed 10 GB more but I did not add any new program or uploaded new data... Do you know why? How can I handle this behavior?

disable hibernation! It's copies all your ram capacity to hdd so if you have a lot of ram a lot of storage will be taken for nothing!

code9523 is right, open a command prompt with administrative privileges an type: powercfg /hibernate off
you could add "on" (without apostrophes) to turn it back on later. The only problem is that with hibernation off, it means you disable FastBoot.

Many thanks guys. The file hiberfil.sys was exactly the problem. I have discovered that its default size is 75% of RAM. Given that I have 32 GB RAM, hiberfil.sys was stealing a lot of memory on disk. I have also discovered that by typing powercfg /h /size <percentage_size (0 – 100)> in the command prompt you can re-size the file hiberfil.sys. By assigning a 15% I was able to maintain the benefits of FastBoot and to recover space in the disk.
