784KB?


I've had a hard drive that was 800MB total running Windows 95, and on average, it has 50KB space remaining. Still did everything...internet, games, etc.

No I didn't notice any decreased performance because, I was only using the internet and IM.

Nubius would you say this was in a pretty good state? i defragged with O&O yesterday but when it installed i told it to delete the old defragger so i cant load it up on there like you did! is there anyway i can get it back? unless i dont need it
I don't know, that doesn't look like the correct analysis screen. You need to right click on it and go to 'analyze' and then use the 'SPACE' method of defragging to clear it up the most. The stealth one just does it all quick and doesn't get as thorough.

As far as deleting the M$ one, I don't know dude. I don't even remember that option coming up, but obviously I didn't delete it

Search your entire HDD for *.tmp and delete them all.

How : Start Menu / Search
Search for : Files and Folders.

Enter in *.tmp : This will find all "TEMP" files on the machine.

Temp files are unecessary and 'potentially' take up a lot of space.

I have found a 4 gb .tmp file before, so I continue to use this trick to free up space.
