    Use disk cleanup and ccleaner. And if you dont use whatever program, uninstall it. Dont delete files, unless you know what they're for

    If you have heaps of Movies/MP3's/Pic'c you can move these to another Drive

    Any clean up will probably get rid of around 3 Gig's,make sure Windows upgrade is ticked in Disk Cleanup as there could be 2/3 Gig's here

    Time for a bigger Drive

    "Best Practise" is not to clutch at straws & get a bigger HD, or remove all the photos, games, movies & music
    Its a sign you HD is too small, trying to free up some space by removing tmp files etc is often not a long term solution .
    Some early SSD's were simply far too small for real world use as a single drive .

    What Type & size is your Hard drive. PJ
    Deafness.
    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)
