hi, i have just used Windows' Disk Cleanup tool and i am shocked to find 4.72gb of data i can clear of 'System queued Windows Error Reporting and solution checking'!! Please can anyone tell me what this is and is it ok to delete this?
Thank you.

Ps- is it ok to use the 'Compress this drive to save disk space' tool as i have never used this before?

Delete the System Queued bits but beware of compressing the drive as it sometimes slows the system down as it is decompressing files 'on the fly' as it needs them. Should you have any problems with the drive it then becomes more difficult to recover data.

Thank you for that, i thought i heard that regarding compressing the files before! What were the System Queued files then?

Old error reports and search reports for solutions to those errors. I've never had a problem deleting them.
