Hi - I'm trying to find out what is clogging up the C drive on my daughter's pc - could someone please remind me what is the programme which displays the drive with different coloured blocks for different folders/programmes?

I can't see what adds up to the usage of 19.5gb of a 20gb drive - that well known mental block has kicked in!

Thanks - it certainly was something like that. I've downloaded it, but it says it's not verified - is it ok? Though I'm sure you wouldn't recommend it if it wasn't, but you know what it's like when you're doing things to someone else's computer!

Yes it is perfectly OK.

Thanks - I'll give it a go.

Probably quite safe.

The plodding way is to use something like CClean which will automate removal of piles of temporary internet files and other left over temporary files which you might not fell prepared to search for and delete yourself

Thanks, chaps. I ran it and found they had lots of small stuff rather than something big - apart from a huge chunk of photos I'd put on since I came here on holiday!

I removed some progs they didn't need either - well, I don't think they need them! Good job I'm going home next week.
