Operating Disk Space

  lilythepink 21:37 21 Aug 2008

I have a Dell Laptop 6400. I am getting a message saying that I have low operating disk space. I have deleted all the programs that I know I can safely delete, but still I have no space. Any ideas?

I use memory sticks for all my documents and pictures and back up to another memory stick each weekend and do not lose the sticks like the government
I can then use the memory sticks on my desk top or lap top

Turn off system restore reboot then enable this will remove all restore points this will release the space taken up. You will loose all your restore points but gain space.

Also do a disk cleanup to delete unnecessary files. There is one on XP - but better is
