I have a laptop and do not have any programs installed except vista which came with it. I dont have any saved documents or files and yet my hard drive is half full It is an acer laptop processor intel(r)celeron(r)cpu [email protected] GHz memory 1.99 GB dual hard drive C drive 16.5 free of 32.5 GB D drive 32.1 free of 32.2 Should I put something on the D drive if so what? I dont need the office part of vista so is it safe to delete that part without affective the main vista. All I have is avg and defraggler and c cleaner I dont know if I am wrong but it does seem a lot of hard drive to take up by so little
my advise would be to do the following: start> right click on computer> manage> then click on drive management> right click on the D: drive and delete it> once finished rightclick on hte C: drive and choose expand.
Only do the above if you are sure and that you have backed up any important files. This will in effect create a single partition of approx 65Gb out of the 80Gb that you have (some of it is being used for recovery software)
also google for the terms "expanding and deleting partitions to get a clearer idea"
I still have hardly reduced it. Does anyone know how much space the Vista operating system takes up because apart from that I only have avg and c cleaner on there Have tried disc clean and compression no difference
