How can I make enough room on my hardrive in order to be able to defrag it?
Posted on 2007-11-13
When I try to defrag my hardrive, parttion C. , my windows XP defrag application informs that I do not have enough room left on it to perform this . It reqiores 15% room available to defrag properly. I have not been able to defrag it in a long time and my computrer is getting very slow. My D. partition of 45Gig has plaenty of room on it,at least 35 Gig left and I hae no problem defragging that . In order to create enough room on my 20Gig C Partition on my 80 gig hardrive ,to be able to defrag it, I need to create another 2Gig of space(it has 1.23Gig left on it) , Other than music and photo/video files(which I already have moved to my external hardrive)what other files can I move, which I can later replace after I defrag? Can I move some files to the D,? How should I o this? Sjould I uninstall several of my larger programs from C, I am considering uninstallingMy HP printer installation and several windows applications but I stilll want to have them back when I am done. Can THey be recoverd , and perhaps moved to D? I simply would like to defrag C but I don't have anough room on it and don't know where to start to create that 2 Gigs of space that it needs. I have already moved all picture and music files to my external hard drive. Hope you can Help, thanks Rick
