Buy some DVD and get burning. Buy a backup drive. Either way, spend some cash. I'd opt for a backup external HD because you can use it in the future. Also, the price per GB is very low these days.

If it's on a separate partition, apart from the OS, then just reformat the OS partition.

Or create a partition now, to hold the 30GB of info, and reformat the OS partition.

Opps, I forgot about that? But you need to partition and use software. Now where can we get that software?

If your hd is in partitioned in 2...you can transfer your files in half and format the half and vice versa...
