    click on my computer, right-click on the hard drive concerned C:, select properties. You see a quantity of free space and a graphic too. If your drive is really full, it could be because you have the standard XP setting where system files are hidden.

    If you need to create more space, there are so many things you could do, I hardly know where to start....

    there's tons of junk located at
    \Docs & Settings\-your-login-\Local Settings\ {Temp and Temporary Internet Files}

    you can delete all contents of both directories and buy back a lot of space.

    also Help-support->disk cleanup can be used for even more
