I have just installed XP Home onto my Niece's rather old computer. It it is a 'Scott' with a 700 Mz celeron and a hard drive of about 8GB.
Having installed XP is shows a total capacity of 2.9GB and about 1GB free, and this is only with MS Works insatalled. Where's the rest gone?
My brother-in-law has previously used a program on the PC to try and get the old original 'Windows ME' going again to no avail(Hence me buying XP for them) but during his attempts setup a particion. It gave him options for its location of between 1000 & 7000 or something and he set it at 3000 for no apparent reason.
I have no idea really but wondered whether this particion business has something to do with the lack of available hard drive space?
I would be most grateful for any advice or guidance.
