I've also noticed it's only showing 233gb with some 'reserved system space'. Is there any way to free up the missing 17gb? My operating system is on another drive. Thanks zoobie 06:19 26 Oct 2005 true...true...plus I have my dvd burner...still...i just wondered what they were and what the heck could be taking up a whole 17gb which used to be a huge hard drive unto itself.Thx This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
