How to delete "HDD??" Backup??

  Noels 17:01 23 Jun 2003

Have been having computer problems. A friend thought he could cure them !!. First did a backup. NOT to floppies or CD but to HDD?/My computer"C" or wherever with the result memory used increased from 2.6GB to 5.37GB. Free reduced by same amount.

Question where do I find this backup and how do I get rid of it to free up memory again. Sorry if not using correct terms but feel sure someone out there can help.

So much fo knowledgeable friends. Regards Noels

When the Broadband People installed my Modem etc they did something similar. They said we'll just do a backup as a precaution again not to a Zip Drive etc. In both cases the local disk C used capacity doubled. The Broadband people restored it to its original. How do I do the same again

What you mean is Disc space as been used. If you have a big drive you should not worry too much. double click on My-Computer right click the C:\ drive click properties and see how much space you have free

The backup may be in the root Directory of C:\ look in Windows Explorer for a very big file

try doing a search for a file that is over 1,000,000kb in size, i wouldn't have thought that there will be many files on your pc of this size.
