I am about to re install vista, and although I have cleared most programs etc off my computer, before doing so,i have only 47gb out of 76 gb. is there any way of getting some of that back before I reinstall. I have deleted 'windows.old' as I know that was created from a previous re-install, but there is still a lot missing.

During re-install you will be given the option to remove\delete existing partitions, and re-create them. This will likely reclaim the missing space.

Thank You I think It tells you everything will be put into 'windows.old', even after deleting that I found during a scan with malware bytes it was doing files that were long since deleted.
