View Full Version : Recovering disk space



13-06-2002, 11:27 AM
Yesterday I installed Oracle8i personal edition downloaded from Oracle website. I had only 1.34Gb free space. Insallation(minimal) finished successfuly.But when I tried to copy the database files the message I received not enough disk space.
This software is only for learning SQLplus statements. So I decided to uninstall and reinstall again with custom install.
The problem is after I uninstalled,disk has only 725 MB free space.I tried to find manually the files been stored and delete,but I couldn't find. I searched in C,Windows,Programfiles,System directories.
I am using Winows98 (First).
Please advise me how can I recover the lost disk space.
Thank You!

Have you looked in the Recycle Bin? You might have both compressed and uncompressed versions of the software in there.

Still, I can remember good software coming on 1 or 2 360k floppies. A *big* package used three. Does the software work any better now?

Hi Graham,

My Recycle bin is empty.
I mentioned about I have uninstalled the software. To reinstall, I don't have enough disk space

You might need to set your display options so that you see 'all' files. If you had 1.3GB before and 725 MB free after, there are files there.
