I bought my Sony Vaio laptop from Costco. It did not come with a recovery cd or any operating system cds. It has Windows Vista installed. I am living in DR Congo...with no available computer stores around.
My hard drive space just keeps disappearing. I removed all my photos, music and documents and any unused programs. The hard drive is 130 GB, yet I have only 1 to 2 GB free. I run disk cleanup and keep removing things and it may show 6 GB left and later the same day it shows only 2 left. What is happening?
I think I have decided to reformat the machine. I do have a copy of Windows 7. Can I do a reformat/install option of Windows 7 with only 1 GB left? Will it reformat the computer first and then install Windows 7 thus erasing everything from the computer first? Where can I find the best option for reformatting instructions? Since I have no original disks, which drivers should I try to download first?
Thank you for any help you may give....
