MikeR005...

We've about run out of options here. Do you have a lot of important files on this machine?

Ok....

Your best option is to pick up a new hard drive and install the operating system on that. You can then slave the current hard drive and move your documents, photos, and music to the new drive. Format the slave and you have gobs of storage.

Do you have two separate drives or one drive with two partitions? Big difference there. If you have two separate drives we might be able to get something going yet!

MikeR005...

Let's assume for a moment that when you save information, you save it to the same drive you boot to. That would be drive C. Try to remember what is on the other drive...probably drive D.

As a rule, when you add a hard drive, it will kick the cd-rom drive up a letter and name itself in order after C. I'm going to guess it's D using this rule of thumb. Do you ever "tell the machine" to save to D? How long ago did you save the music and photos...before or after installing the second drive?
