ok, so here's my problem. I have 12mb left on drive C. But no, i dont suck with computers. I partitioned one of my drives so that 20gbs was for the OS and the rest was for all my files and what not. That way if i needed to reformat windows i wouldn't have to go about backing up tons of files. Ok well i just checked and since i started writing and its back up to like 200 mb left. Which is weird. I dont get why it's fluctuating like this. When i try to go and hunt down stuff to delete to clear up space i can't find anything. It says theres 9gb in documents and settings but when i look in the folders for it, the folders only add up to like 650mb or so. So where's all my space going? It gets really annoying cause it gets the computer running pretty sluggish even though im not using like any of the CPU or memory. Help?
If it was going up ur ass you would know it

Maybe empty your reclying bin, that sometimes holds shit. Then all subfolders are included in your my docs...i dont know..get external
Well aren't you just the coolest!
bump. since i made this thread like 2gb of space has disappeared. I partitioned one of my HDD so that only windows runs on one partitioned piece (C) and the rest is left for everything else. I just got another 400gb hdd for footage. so its not like an external will solve this. help please
youve probably already done it but run the little disk cleanup tool
or defragment...im not sure if that help clear out space but...
are you running vista or xp?
you're viewing hidden files, right?
maybe..? wheres the option for that. im down to 0 bytes now.
windows xp by the way
ok well i found the option for that, i wasnt. So i found that theres 10 gbs in Local Settings\Temp. What exactly is in there? what do i want to keep and what can go?
umm i think its just temp internet files...so they can all go....but dont hold me to that...maybe wait for someone who actually knows....cause i think im wrong
try clearing history/cookies/internet files in explorer/firefox
