Hi, there's a difference in advertised disk space and actual disk space.

Example: your OS (operating system) claims that that specific folder is 300 mb. Though your manufacturer claims it's only 250 .
That might be a reason for the difference, I believe.

Also, remember that when you move files, it's best to uninstall the application, then install it on your F: drive.
I'd suggest attaching an external hard disk, in case you have much files (eg. movies) on your C: drive that you still want to keep.

I think in your case it would be useful to use disk quota.
This will prevent you from putting anything on the C: drive that is for example larger than 50 mb.

Hi, that's great :) .

Still I'd advise you to use disk quota, unless you have a good memory.
The last thing you want is that your hard drive crashes :) .

One good security update, one movie file downloaded, one program installed and your hard drive space will be used up.
You still do not have 10% of your HD free for the MBR to run correctly.
In order for that to happen you would need 1 gig at least. I have explained that now and I still suggest a larger hd or a second hd to help you save data to it .
