I am gctting messages about compacting files to save disk space on my desktop and laptops. I have no wish to do this as the saving is minimal but I cannot seem to get rid of the message everytime I log on.

Which program is wanting to compact files?

If it is your email program then that is quite normal for it to Compact (tidy up) email files every so often.

Yes it is, so should I do so.

Yes let it do it.

Thanks to all, I have deleted masses of accumulated old stuff and junk which seems to have got rid of the message.
