Hi I uninstalled a load of programs from my pc because its going somewhere else.
However when I right click on my C drive and select properties my hard drive shows that only 2.9 gb is free and I can't see what is taking up that much space. 34gb is being shown as used. I uninstalled everything from the control panel. I am running xp pro
Something I have just learnt, there is no scandisk in XP. (Vog told me that a couple of days ago.) You have to use chkdsk. I don't have XP so I can't tell you where it is but someone else will probably be able to.
Following on from Smiler's suggestion, did you use delete to get rid of any of the programs and files? If so, they may be still in your recycle bin, which counts towards your disk usage. When you use delete, you don't actually gain any space until you empty the recycle bin.
