Large data size

Hi,

The Trend Micro Wifi Protection app takes up 16GB of storage and is by far the largest app on my computer.
My storage space is now nearly zero available which is causing problems and I'd like to know if the Trend Micro Wifi Protection app can be reduced to a smaller size.

Hi, emma.w.smith3299.

 

Thank you for providing the information needed. Can you check which file/folder on the WiFi Protection's storage that has the largest size taken? If you can send a screenshot or copy of the file path, that would be better.

 

You can also try to reinstall the Trend Micro WiFi Protection then check if the issue will still persist. Please use the installer on this link:

Thanks for that advice, @kim_de_guzman!

I couldn't find where the app was stored but I did uninstall and re-install the app using the instructions provided and the storage size of the app is reduced to 56 MB now.

Thank you for your help.
