Hi, I am having a problem locating all the files that are on my computer. I thought that when I updated to XP the old files were gone, but just now as I was creating a data cd I saw all the old files. Now here is my problem. How do I get to those files to delete them? I just an't figure out where to look so that I can delete the and they are eating up way to much space. I sure hope you can help me. Thanks in advance. Wrenie

Look in your Window Explorer for your files. Your best bet is to do a search on a known file to locate that folder, otherwise you're going to need to open each folder if it's not save in your document folder.

Click on the Start menu then, Programs, then Accessories, then Windows Explorer. Once open, click on the small plus signs to view the data. For example, click on the plus sign on "My Computer" to view your c-drive, then click on its plus sign to view the folders in your c-drive. At anytime, you can use the search button to locate your files.
