View Full Version : File sizes



07-09-2001, 11:34 PM
When looking at the sizes of some programs, I noticed that the windows folder (c:\windows) was 350MB and it took up nearly 470MB. ('469,367,680 bytes used').
Is there anything that Ican do to change that to free up some HDD space?

apart from cleaning out temp files i would suggest you go buy a bigger hard drive:-)

The windows folder tends to grow the longer it has been installed, its just a windows thing.

The internet exploiter 'Tempory Internet Files' by default can get absolutely huge. Delete everything in it, then using the internet control panel, to limit its size to ~10-20MB.

I would do a clean install, its the only real solution. About once a year seems to keep it under control (although im about every 6 months).
