EDIT: I accidentally posted this in the "Centrino" series section, I apologize for my hasty misclick. If a moderator sees this, would he/she mind moving it to the correct Pentium series section? Thanks. Hi, I've been wondering how to free up some extra hard drive space on my laptop. I had about 2GB left out of 29GB, while the computer runs fine, I'd like to install some new stuff, and I don't want to go below 1GB since that seems kind of risky. I only have three games installed, Warcraft III, Maple Story, and Continuum (small game, takes up about 30mb or so). I have no movies, and only about 20 images so I don't understand what is taking up so much space. I've run AVG virus full virus scan (latest update), AVG AntiSpyware, Microsoft AntiSpyware, Ad-Aware, done Disk Cleanup, Defragmented my Hard Drive, Defragmented my Registry (using TuneUp Utilities 06), and of course deleted the Recycle Bin and temporary internet files. Now I have about 4GB left, but that still leaves a lot of other space in question. --> Is there something I'm missing here? The computer itself runs fine so I doubt it is any virus or spyware, but the hard drive just seems to be getting weaker and weaker. I use a Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop, and I haven't been able to find anyone else with this model to ask for help so I'm asking here . Here are the specs:
Thanks very much for reading.
