Hi,
I need help. I have a hard drive of 4.3Gb. that has a O.S.XP Pro on it. For a while now I have had spare 700 to 800mb. After an enforced restart, I'm left with 57mb.I had done all the usual clear-outs temp-files, Docs and setting
Local settings and got rid of all loose stuff.
Run a virus check, all clear. Cleared the 'Norton' protected files. Looked at the folders on the drive and saw nothing new. System Restore will not function at less than 200Mbs.
Any help please.

Windows might have performed a memory dump after the crash.

Have a look in your Windows folder in the c: drive for a file called Memory.DMP, you will find it will be large. You can delete it to regain your space back.

Silly question but have you emptied the recycle bin?

Hi PSF,
Thanks for the advise. I'll have a look.
Hi Fruit Bat,
Yes I emptied the 'recycle bin'.

Hi PSF,
Just been reading click here Learning all the time. Can never say 'I know everything!' I read your link now. I had 19Mb. in Dr. Watson. Still short of my missing Mb's. Thanks for all your help. PSF.

having read this posting just done a search for *.DMP and found auser.dmp + several mini dumps all 64kb

Didn't realise these were building up in the system.
