windows clean install

sorry about the stupid question , since the last windows update , i keep getting warnings that my F drive a partition of C drive is running out of space . it looks like windows dumped some un-disclosed files on it that i can not access , Windows defender has recommended doing a clean install , is this the best course of action

If you use disk clean up it may be able to delete old updates installed on F

If windows is telling you to reinstall then you should probably listen to it. If you want you can create a system image before you do it just incase.

Also make sure to do a backup of important files on top of a system image.
