Those are your backup files to restore your system in case of problems. You're only going to gain about a gigabyte by deleting it. If you need more room you might want to consider getting a good used 10-30 gigabyte drive to add to the system. Installling a drive much larger than that will be a lot more complicated, you would have to get a new one with instructions and software and follow the instructions carefully. :tazz:

You might want to get a new machine, ME is disappearing down the sewer - a lot of newer games aren't supported!

Its a bummer I know, my PC's three years old and can still cut it on spec's but ME kicks me where it hurts!

I think DOS was a lot easier to use, I sure could find things easier.

Just like cars, they used to fit engines so you could put your hands in, now they wedge them in and can't touch them unless you're four years old!

Anyway, XP was rumoured at the time to have problems with older software, so I got ME. Oh [bleep], decisions, decisions.

Wonder if you could have a dual OS machine - two hdd's seperate with a flick switch so you could swap between the two?!

Oh, and I'd 'go' with Tyger - get a new harddrive, smallish one should be dirt cheap.
