Well that's about the most straight-forward posting i've read in a while - LOL....

You could delete any old files you no longer need, but beyond that, your options are to either buy another HDD or back up your existing data onto a removable media like CD-R, tape drives, jazz drives, etc.

If you are interested, I have a brand new 80 GB Maxtor itnernal hard drive that i've got sitting in my closet. PM me if you are interested in buying one. I was actually saving it just in case someone wanted me to build a new system for them.

There is actually a disk compression tool in Windows but these days considering the prices of new HDDs, I would not risk my data by using that option. New CD burners/ Hard drives have come down in price quite a bit.

No thanks lonewolf and subdivision. It's for a partition and it can stay at 0 megs free space.

Customiser Xp must edit something in the registry or turn something off in windows, what is it that warns me about low disk space. I'm sure I can do it manually, just don't know what. Anyone know that?

I searched for that option by typing gpedit.msc in RUN dialog box but couldn't find it.

Here's the registry setting you're looking for:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Create a REG_DWORD value named NoLowDiskSpaceChecks and set it to 1.

You may need to log out or restart for the change to take place.
