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.
