An earlier thread has started me off on this, as it seems that I may have a problem that I didn't know about, if you see what I mean. I have a new machine that had XP Home on it which I have upgraded to XP Pro. 'C' drive contains only that which I couldn't put elsewhere such as Works 2004 and software that was installed when I got the machine. All the other stuff is on other partitions. 'C' Drive is made up of:- Page file.sys 3.00GB Programmes 1.88GB Windows 2.85GB Drivers 0.53GB 1386 0.43GB plus another dozen files and folders of small size.(under 250KB) Is this a normal size for all this stuff? It seems a lot to me when I was able to keep 'C' drive on my old machine running Me at less than 2.5GB. And, how is it possible to put the Page file on another partition as the earlier thread suggested it was possible ti so do? I have to say that I don't find everything slow, in fact it is all quicker than I had it before using ME, but then that may well be due to moving from an Athlon 1200 to a 64 3200. I've attacked the registry using Norton and CClean both of which have shifted a fair bit but I am still left with this above.
The disc space is being used at a fast rate with the system restore, you can turn it of if you create a Image file of C:\ as I did but you are better removing the rubbish that's been installed that you will never use. Windows accessories was installed on my comp as was Works 7 and I do not need them so I removed. You can do a cleanup of the C:\ Drive by double click on My Computer then on C:\ Drive choose Cleanup you can also remove "all but the latest" Restore points to free some space under More options
