Please help!!! I have purchased an external drive and moved the majority of my programs to this drive, there is no reason for the drive to be full. I have cleaned the internet temporary file folder through c:documents and settings: user: temporary internet files. Now running Space Monger to see what it picks up. Any suggestions for what else needs to be done. Space monger is showing a lot of files in tempory internet files that i am unable to find going through the C:\ drive. Nothing will run, and i cant compress or degrag due to lack of space.
It is unclear which drive you are having the problem with. Are you talking about the new external hard drive as being full? Or are you referring to the internal hard drive containing the operating system, applications and data as being full.
This may be a slip up in wording but did you really "move the majority of my programs" to the external drive? Or did you mean to say 'moved my data files'. And by 'move' did you do a copy/paste or cut/paste or use a backup program?
If the C:\ drive is full open the Run dialog box and type in "%temp%" (without the quotes), then delete all files and folders shown. That may free up enough to start working with the drive again.

If the drive is showing up as full, then you have more data on there than you think you have. Do you have music, videos, photos on the resident drive?
