  civicr 15:15 25 Jul 2008

Hi all ,
I have looked into wht my hdd is filling up and the programme i ran said that windows takes up 53% . Can this be correct and how can I reclaim space.
Also any ideas/recomendations as to where to get cheep pc components .

Start\Programs\Accessories\Tools\System Restore click on any partition other than C:\ go to settings and turn off Restore, the for the Operating system drive click C:\ settings set to 9% of drive this should cut down how much Restore uses

53% sounds extremely OTT to me.

What program did you run to arrive at this figure?

What size is the HDD?

PS do not just put a tick in the first box you see to turn off as this turn them all off, and you would lose your restore points. you have to first click on a drive letter then Settings then the box

To reclaim space uninstall all those programs you never use and use this click here

"cheep pc components" - are those the ones used by chickens?
