I have windows xp we do mostly email and save quite a few jokes, etc, but very little else. the erasable ,local disk C has capacity of 6.97GB I have been cleaning and defraging daily and deleteing everything I can. The most free space I retreve is 220MB??? Am I missing a clean-up option? Need larger disk (if so --how to do?) orWHAT? I can't figure out what is taking up all that space! Note: Please post any apprciated Help in language a "new to this sh_ _, 60+"can hopefully follow!!!

System restore is a possible, click start then all programmes, click accessories, system tools, disc clean up, click more options, click clean up restore points, confirm and reboot, check the disc space

I would reccomend just purchasing a new hard drive. You can find a 30 GB one for under $50. And they are very easy to install into your current system.
