What is the best way to "clean up/free space" on my computer? Thank you

What is the best way to clean/free up space on my computer?  Even do not know where to look to see how much space I use... Thank you.

A loss of main surface within each user profile would be penchant of EI for the storage of copies (or much) of almost every web page, your friend has already visited.  Try to reduce the amount of temporary Internet files put in cache, which is huge by default.  I always bring it back to a maximum of 50 MB.  In Internet Explorer, click on tools > Internet Options > general, temporary files > settings.

Same principle for the Java cache. Start > Control Panel > Java > temporary Internet files > settings.

The System Volume Information is the folder in restoration of which WinXP system feature stores information to retrieve errors.  By default, Windows XP sets aside a maximum of 12% of the size of the partition to store the information of the System Volume, but the amount of space reserved for this purpose can be adjusted by the user.  Start > all programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > System Restore Settings, select the relevant partition and click settings.  If you don't want to use the system at all, restore simply to turn off System Restore (start > all programs > Accessories > system tools > system, System Restore settings restore) and restart.  This will remove all your Restore Points, thus freeing up hard disk space.

An another great space waster may be trash.  By default, it takes up to 10% of the capacity of your hard drive. On today's big hard disks, it's a lot of waste.  It can be set to a lower limit by right clicking the desktop Receycle Bin icon, select Properties, and using the scroll bar to reduce the maximum size to something more reasonable - 1% to 2% should be more than enough space.

    This is a very common and classic situation:

    http://helpx.Adobe.com/Photoshop-elements/KB/backup-restore-move-catalog-Photoshop.html

    Just make sure that your backup on the external drive is ok: you should find a "backup.tly" file in the folder.

    Use the organizer of PSE11 to restore the backup of the PSE7: the first step restores all your multimedia files, the second automatically performs a conversion of catalogue in format PSE11.

    Read the note in the link above on the restoration of XP to the ulterior Win operating system. You can also restore to a location 'custom '. For example in a "C:\My new library" folder. Make sure the main folder is accessible to all users, and if you wish, you can move the catalog (database), itself from this location to the default location: Catalog Manager, ability to move catalogs in location that is accessible to all users.

  • What is the best way to transfer a hard drive of a computer with a motherboard dead to a new system?

    Moving an Installation of Vista

    Hi guys (and girls).

    I'm looking for the best way to transfer my computer drive "workaholic" into another machine... it's a Vista Home Premium x 86 OEM installation, but the motherboard has serious problems, so I'll pulling the reader (and its programs of many irreplaceable and owners) and transfer it into another machine. Yes, I know what are the rules regarding OEM licenses and I don't mean to skirt the rules, as I have a full VHPx86 commercial license collecting dust on the shelf that I was going to use, while I was looking for advice on the transfer:

    Should I go through the process of installation/installation (and following key change) on the original machine and transfer, then the drive in the new machine?

    Or can I move the disk to the new machine as that is, struggle with the driver updates and enter the new key when I reactivate the license?

    Thanks for any advice,

    JAM

    I suggest to install the copy retail hard disk once it's in the new computer.  It is more complicated than simply changing the product key.  You can probably use an upgrade of the repair on-site and avoid having to reinstall your programs and data.  However, you should make a backup of the image first, just in case something goes wrong.  The other option is a clean installation of the new OS and Windows Easy Transfer to move your files and settings.  It would need to reinstall your programs.  Personally, I recommend the latter.  If you go this route there are external to the file migwiz drive since you will be formatting the drive.

  • What is the best way to clean the bad data?

    We are new to Eloqua (E9) and I'm working on cleaning up our incorrect data. The first part of the process is to find, so I started to create contact filters focus on specific areas that I can see what we are dealing with before I commit to clean in a program.

    Many of our contact fields have given with aaa, bbb, ccc, ddd, etc. or variations on that (for example, xaaaad). In my contact filters, it seems that the only way to find things like "xaaaad" as well as "aaa" or any other variant, is to use 'First name has aaa', 'first name does bbb", etc.

    My question is this: in order to use 'Field contains', do I have to enter each value (aaa, bbb, ccc,...) in the unique filter? If so, I will hit quickly step 15 Max is there a better way to do it?

    Thank you!

  • What is the best way to clean the individual video frames without degrading the quality?

    I have a video that I need to remove several species of birds that were flying by during a video scene.

    Video is a Video HD 422 1920 x 1080 / 23.97 P.

    Is the best to make files from Premiere Pro and open these files in Photoshop, then work on each image; and then make the file again from Photoshop?  If Yes, is not which reduces video quality a little?

    The next part may require a separate post in Photoshop forum.

    I tried to import my mpg and mpeg files made in Photoshop, but I keep getting an error message "the video file could not be opened."  I made some other formats; .avi and .mov., and these 2 files types to open in Photoshop V13 x 64 correct.

    Sincerely,

    While you can adjust each image in Photoshop to remove items, a better way is to use the Clone Stamp tool in After Effects to remove items in a scene.

  • What is the best way to transfer your license of Windows product key when you sell your older hardware?

    Hello

    I wanted to just see what others suggest, when planning on the sale of your more old hardware to family or friends and ensure the maximum payment and trade-in value.  I have a laptop that I will probably remove the Windows operating system and installs an open source OS top. I intend to sell the laptop of the family, and I'm little warily to get paid as much as I want for her.  I think that one option could be to remove the product key sticker, until I paid, and then send the product to them key sticker separately or is it really important and should leave the sticker on the computer because the laptop was first recorded in my name and my address.  I read your suggestions on how to handle this matter. THX ;)

    You are not supposed to do. License is part of the machine, remove the sticker isn't fair, since you sell the machine, the license must be sold with it.

    In addition, you cannot use the license elsewhere.

    The OEM of Windows 7 versions are identical to the versions commercial full license with the following exception:

    -OEM versions don't offer any free direct support from Microsoft technical support Microsoft

    -OEM Licenses are tied to the computer first you install and activate it on

    -OEM versions allow all hardware upgrades except for an upgrade to a different model motherboard

    -OEM versions does not move directly from an older Windows operating system

  • What is the best way to import my address and e-mail of Pegasus in Thunderbird?

    I use Windows 7 x 64. I have a number of files and many electronic addresses in the Pegasus Mail client. I'm looking to migrate to Thunderbird. Can you tell me the best way to move my files to Thunderbird?

    Thank you
    Allen Hill

    For your address books, can export you to a format such as CSV?

    To move e-mail messages, the cleaner is to use the IMAP protocol. Then your new client look just the same files you had in Pegasus.

    Unfortunately, email clients tend to use their own systems of storage of e-mail owner and there is no commonly used standards that could help to transfer between clients. If you can export files in mbox format, then Thunderbird can use.

  • I'll do a clean install on a blank hard drive upgrade but want to keep my Firefox settings - what is the best way to do this?

    I'll do an upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7. I will be installing Windows 7 on a new empty hard drive. I want to keep my bookmarks Firefox and Ad Ons. What is the best way to do it. Thank you for your help.

    Hello

    The best thing for you to do is to make a backup of your Firefox profile. It is a folder that stores bookmarks and Add-ons that you can then add to the reinstalled Firefox on your new operating system.

    Learn you more about the Firefox profile folder, how to backup and restore, here.

    I hope this helps, but if not, please come back here and we can look at in another option for you.
