Hi

Im using windows xp pro
Version 2002

I have recently noticed that I only have 20gig free space on my 80gig hard drive and there is no way I have used this much.

When I go to the Defrag tool I have noticed that a large area of CONTIGUOUS FILES, I think this is where all the space is taken up, Is there any way I can remove these files?.

Many Thanks

Mark

i dont think you can delete these files but just look for any big files that you dont need.

you could backup all important files etc and reformat and reinstall windows and then restore the backup.

****YOU NEED THE ACTIVATION CODE MAKE SURE IT WORKS BEFORE FORMATING*****
