View Full Version : Hard drive showing as full

Can anyone offer some suggestions for a workmate whose PC's hard drive is showing as full, even after deleting a large number of files etc??

I think they are on Win98.

Don't forget to empty the recycle bin, just deleting won't get rid of them.
You could try deleting the contents of the windows temp file, they somtimes grow pretty big

After emptying the recycle bin, run a scandisk, as the freespace count is often incorrect. This will fix it.

In System Tools run:

(1) Scandisc

(2) Disc Cleanup, to get rid of various temporary files etc.

But as said earlier delete, then empty delete!
