We currently have a old computer which came with a 8 gb hard drive. We added another 110 gb. However, we had to split it between 2 drives; f & G. We have worked hard to keep the C: (8GB) clear but it just keeps filling up. I have briefly flirted with trying to move every thing to the other drives, but feel it is totally beyond me.
Now, however I have been given a newer computer from work to bring home. So I have a few questions.
1) I want to send the 8 GB to the kids - and want it cleaned of everything except the Windows XP and Office that is on it. We may add other things as they need it... printer, games etc, but really want to start with a clean slate. How do I do that? Do I need to copy anything to disks besides the obvious... documents, personal data from quicken? How do i find those?...
2) I want to keep the 110 GB drive and put it in the new computer, but want it cleaned up too...
when we added it we copied everything from the 8GB over to it... and have sometimes found things on it such as .dlls which I inadvertanly delete at times can and should I copy this to DVD's. It is also where we keep pictures videos and try to store all new programs on it. Suggestions on cleaning this up as well.
3) Can I (should I) avoid installing internet explorer and use Fire fox or one of the other internet options?
I look forward to your help on this.
