It has a 7.1gb drive, with 608mb free space.
I have almost nothing on it. No pictures, no videos, no music.
I have Office 97 (yeah, 97...) and MS Securities Essentials.
That is it, except for what came with the computer.
I have deleted all the sample music and pictures, and everything else that I possibly could.
Then ran cleanup a few times. Still have only 608mb free space.
Two issues. I don't think they are big enough to matter, but still...
1) In MyComputer/ProgramFiles there are folders for Messenger, microsoftfrontpage, msngamingzone, moviemaker, xerox, netmeeting. I don't use these things, but it refuses to let me delete them. Any way to do this? It would help a little.
2) I have 400mb of java6 updates and 450mb of .net framework updates. Any way to delete them and get current versions, saving the 850mb?
But as I say, these are small. What the heck is taking up 5gb that isn't showing up, and how do I get rid of it.
