Being a resourceful young man with very limited funds, I've come to the end of my tether in terms of disk space, as have several other members of my family. Now, I've got an unused HPaq something or other sitting about, and I've been contemplating converting that into a "server" machine, dumping all extra files onto it. Bear in mind that the contents of our hard drives is stuff that can't just be burned and deleted. I've considered that; wouldn't work.
Anyway. Back to the HPaq. Delete the old partition [it had been used by someone with less than noble intentions, leave it at that] and reinstall Windows. Enable disk compression, since things won't have to be running, maybe create two [or three?] partitions, and... what else should I do? Would upgrading the cooling system since it's going to be on for prolonged periods of time be a wise idea? Any other utilities you'd recommend? Did you actually read all of this crap?
Thanks.
