1.Windows cleanup utility can only free up a little free space.

2.Remove unnecessary programs and uninstall some files

3.Compressing not frequently used files

4. You can use some partition software like EASEUS Partition Master Server Edition.

Depends... where do you need the space?  The C: drive?  Then review my article: www.lwcomputing.com/tips/static/bootdrivesize.asp which contains over 20 different things to look at.

I agree with LeeW, on this. It really depends upon what partition needs the space.

For me, I had to change partition sizes and increase space. So, I took an image of my partitions, added some drives, reconfigured the RAID array, and then laid down the images. As far as I know, only Acronis resizes the image to accomodate the different partition size. That doesn't mean that other software can't overlook partition sizes when laying back down the image.
