pedro111 Posted May 19, 2009 Share Posted May 19, 2009 Right, basically my hard drive is partitioned into two parts, c: and e:. When I got the computer about 4 years ago and tried to install XP and for some daft newbie reason I only gave the c drive 14gig. Now, these few years later I am running into serious space issues on my c: drive which is down to under 500mb. Knowing that I had a seriously small c: partition I have made an effort over the years not to store any media or games and such like in it instead putting everything in the e: partition including all new programs, but still this 14 gig space has been eaten up. You should note that I tried resizing the partitions using partition magic but it didnt work. I have used a program to analyse my c drive and it tells me that Windows is taking up 5 gig of space. Should it really be taking up that much? I notice that the windows\temp folder contains over a gig also. Documents and Settings is also taking up 5 gig aswell with program files folder taking up nearly 3 gig. These were programs installed before I realised the problem of how small the c drive was. Now my question is this.......what can I safely delete without fucking up my PC to the extent that it wont start? There are just loads of folders and files with ridiculous names which mean nothing to me. Im terrified of deleting some crucial file. Please help!
