Using a Dell desktop with XP, I want to free up space on the hard drive of a Dell desktop with XP by copying all my photos to a CD and then deleting them from the hard drive. Most of the photos are JPG.

 

Using the XP search facility I searched for *.jpg  and got a long list of hits.

 

  • Most of the hits are shown in black but many are shown in blue, some in black and blue. – What does the blue signify?

 

  • Many of the hits are “canned” icons and logos that appear to be are part of  XP. Is there a way I can eliminate copying those to the CD?

 

  • Some of my photos are from Instagram. – What is the extension for those?

 

Thanks. ... batpark

This might be kind of offtopic reply, but if you want to backup your images, I would suggest you do that on Flickr, Facebook, imgur, Google Drive or on some of this websites that are kinda alternatives to Flickr: http://alternativeto...oftware/flickr/

 

Also, if I am not wrong, Instagram images are also .jpg.
