My PC has an 18GB capacity and only 7 max is taken up by audio/video/picture files...can someone tell me how much space Windows XP uses cos I don't have a huge amount of programs but somehow I've run out of space. I've deleted things but still the amount free seems to decrease - please help - thanks!!!
in windows explorer - select tools - folder options -view - select show hidden files & untick hide protected operating system files - click apply - then look for folders in blue under c:\programs or C:\windows - check size as as the SP2 is around 2 gig in size ;)
...though I've actually done most of the above which is why I'm at such a loss! I did delete some unused programs in program files which gave me 700+ MB so thanks again! And no worries Buchan, I'd like to know about the backup aswell :)
