My computer came with a 6 GB hard drive. I have installed an external 300 GB hard drive. I have moved as much stuff as I can over to the external drive, NtUninstall folders, old java upgrades, etc. Every morning, first thing, I run "Crap Cleaner", then defragment with "Diskeeper". I've benn running the internal drive with 26% free space or so.
Today, in the middle of some emailing, a message box popped up telling me that I had insufficient "virtual memory", an that XP was going to expand my "paging file". That took a while.
Now I am down to 20% free space on the internal drive. Explorer reports that the pagefile.sys is 680 MB.
What is the best thing I can do to free up space on the internal drive? I've deleted unwanted stuff, but there is a lot in there about which I have idea at all what it is. And I'm afraid to mess with folders I know nothing about.
