How can I free up space on my C drive without dumping files I need to power my computer? Windows XP 2002

How can I free up space on my C drive without dumping files I need to power my computer? I have currently 40,4 GB used and I don't know how or what is out there that I don't need? I have a backup of system restore that takes a lot of space, but Im saying that I can not remove it by a pop-up box that says access denied even though I have since transferred it on my external backup hard drive. Can someone please help? Thank you

{You can remove C:\{folder-name with lots of letters and numbers like this: 2b4892ncf73d63db37db37}------(these files are temporary and have been created by installers)
C:\Temp
C:\Documents and Settings\\temp
C:\Documents andSettings\Temp Settings\
C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\ (all the folders inside this folder)

To remove manually restore points, you will need to login to safe mode and change the permissions in the Security tab of the restore point. However, I do not recommend this.

Read this article on how to remove safely restore points:

If your computer is slow too, I can check for you and let you know what you have running, you know not everything in the background with a newspaper.

  • How can I free up space on recovery (D) drive? I'm new with the computer...

    Hi Luis Sarubbi,.

    The recovery drive is there for one purpose and that is to store the recovery image. You shouldn't have anything else on this drive other than the recovery files. As the space for the recovery disks is relatevely small the only way to free up a space is to move the files to another drive or deleting files. Why is it necessary that you free up space on this drive? Unless you know exactly the name of the recovery of all files, you might end up deleting or moving something that is necessary for recovery. If you end up doing it any subsequent recovery may fail.

    Unless there is a specific reason for needing to free up space on this drive, for example, you have been storing document on disk files, then I season you quit well.

  • I am constantly be careful of low disk space how do I free up space on my hard drive without taking it to a pc repair guy?

    question title

    What is your drive and how it is partitioned. What are the sizes of the partitions? Select Start, Control Panel, administrative tools, computer management, disk management for this information.

    Select Start, all programs, accessories, System Tools, Disk Defragmenter. Open Disk Defragmenter and click analysis. Select view report, and then click Save as and save. Now find VolumeC.txt in your My Documents folder. Open the file and place the cursor anywhere in the file and choose Edit, select all. Right click, select copy and paste into a new message here.

    You are using Outlook Express and Internet Explorer? If you are using another browser please let know us the name.

    Select Start, all programs, accessories, System Tools, cleaning disk to emptying your trash, delete temporary Internet files and other selected options. I recommend also you click Other Options, System Restore and delete all but the last system restore point. Run Disk Defragmenter.

    Using the system restore option is most appropriate when your system is slow and you need to increase the free disk space on your C partition. If you have errors that could be solved by using the system restore to your system settings back to before the error occurred initially do not use this option.

    If more than one person uses the computer and they have their own user log you need to run Disk Cleanup in each user profile that you want to delete all the unwanted files.

    A better program of disk cleanup is cCleaner but note that cCleaner will not manage system restore points. Remove the old restore points can be important if you have little free disk space. cCleaner comes with a registry tool. Do not use this tool as any registry cleaner could lead to the creation of very difficult to resolve system errors.

    I'll be able to make any other suggestions on receipt of the information requested above.

    Seek to eliminate the system restore points using cCleaner.

    A better program of disk cleanup is cCleaner. Delete System Restore points may be important if you have little free disk space. The ability to delete them is one of the tools options. You can selectively remove those created in less important moments.

    cCleaner also comes with a registry tool. Do not use this tool as any registry cleaner could lead to the creation of very difficult to resolve system errors.

  • I ran out of free space on the hard drive how can I free up space

    My pc is freezing or locking up when I run a desktop wallpaper animated, so I defragment a saw that I was up to 20% freespace

    You can create more free space in C in carrying one of the measures suggested below.

    The default allocation for the restoration of the system is 12% on your C partition is more generous. I have them would be reduced by 700 MB. Make my computer right click on your icon, and select System Restore. Place the cursor on your C drive select settings but this time find the slider and drag it to the left until it shows 700 MB and output. When you get to the settings screen, click on apply and OK and leave.

    A flaw that might be useless which is for temporary internet files, especially if you keep no copies on the disk offline. Setting the default value is 3% of the walk. Depending on your attitude to copies offline, you could bring it to 1% or 2%. In Internet Explorer, select Tools, Internet Options, general, temporary Internet files, settings to make the change. At the same time, look at the number of days, the story stands.

    The default allocation for the basket is 10% of the disk. Change to 5%, which should be enough. In Windows Explorer hover over your Recycle Bin, right click and select Properties, Global and move the slider from 10% to 5%. However, try to let you become so complete that if it is complete and you delete a file by mistake it will bypass the Recycle Bin and have gone forever.

    If your drive is formatted as NTFS another potential gain arises with your operating system on your C drive. In the Windows directory of your C partition you will some uninstall files in your Windows folder in general: $NtServicePackUninstall$ and $NtUninstallKB282010$ etc. These files can be compressed or not compressed. If compressed text the name of the folder appears in blue. If these files are not compressed you can compress. Right-click on each folder and select Properties, general, advanced, and check the box before you compress contents to save disk space. On the general tab, you can see the winning amount by deducting the size on disk size. File compression is only an option on an NTFS formatted disk partition / partition.

    Select Start, all programs, accessories, System Tools, cleaning disk to emptying your trash, delete temporary Internet files and other selected options. I recommend also you click Other Options, System Restore and delete all but the last system restore point. Run Disk Defragmenter.

    Using the system restore option is most appropriate when your system is slow and you need to increase the free disk space on your C partition. If you have errors that could be solved by using the system restore to your system settings back to before the error occurred initially do not use this option.

  • I need to replace my hard drive on my laptop. How can I install my apps on the new drive without having to pay another subscription

    As the title of the discussion. I will replace my hard drive on my laptop to improve performance, which means reinstall my Photoshop/Lightroom and Bridge apps. How can I go about it without having to pay another fee to subscriptio?

    Simply install them again.  You are allowed two active installations at the same time.  If you have already used, the installation process will tell you that and whether to disable one of the facilities as soon as possible.  Say Yes.  If you have not installed on a desktop as well, then open Photoshop on this system.  If it has been disabled, tell it to disable a previous installation, as you did with the laptop, and you should be OK from there.

  • Two Windows XP OS on PC (media Ctr & Pro). Which you want to remove as appropriate? If this is not the case, how can I free disk space?

    I have currently appears I have two OS on my pc.  A XP Media Center and a professional XP.  At the start, I select XP Media Center and it works fine.  My problem is that the files in the second version of the OS that seems to have been filed in a folder titled Windows2 do I need?  If not, how to remove the second version or at least release the 7 GB of space it occupies?

    To remove either, start pc in that you want, once in xp, go to run,

    type: diskmgmt.msc

    MSC, you should see the operating system on a different partition, R.click on it & delete, or

    Select this option to format the partition. I imagine that media center is on by default C:

    should be on... To start from scratch, you need to start on an xp installation cd, press the r key

    I am now on a critical aspect of Red State

    Hello

    I guess you want to decrease the C partition and want to add free space to the second partition D. right?

    In this case, you will need to use a 3rd party software as for example: * GParted *.

    I recommend looking in the internet for this application.
    Its freeware and very nice.

  • Can't free up space from Oracle

    Oracle version: 10.2.0.4.0
    Platform: Solaris

    In the bdump directory, I saw some big files with name like this < SID >arc1< PID > .trc. I tried to free up space by running cat/dev/null >
    .TRCarc1< PID > < SID >, but it seems the files are not narrowed. Can someone tell me how can I free up space in these files without having to restart the database?

    Thank you

    On Unix, when someone delete a file if the file is always written by some processes, space occupied by the file is not released. This is because the file is always opened by the process and the counting of this file is different from zero.

    For free space, you may have to let the process close the file explicitly or kill the offending process.

    Hello

    The folder N360_BACKUP is not here and should be deleted or moved to another location.  The file is created by using Norton backup, so this utility should be configured to store its backup files into a directory on the C partition or to an external device in order to avoid the warning of low disk space you may have been found.
