    My Sony VAIO RZ40 has drives C and D. Drive C is so full that Defragger will not work.

    I have deleted Microsoft Word from drive C (planning to reinstall on drive D) but Properties in drive C does not show any reduction in space used.

    In addition to Defragger not working, when I choose Disk Cleanup it runs for hours and never does its job.

    What have I done wrong?

    How did you delete Microsoft Word?

    You should have used Add/Remove from the Control Panel.

    Delete you Internet files, which should free up a lot of disk space.

    Move the swap file to D

    Reduce the size of restore points

    DownLoad EasyCleaner http://www.majorgeeks.com/download414.html

    Use the clear files and Unnecessary files buttons - I do not recommend
    using the Duplicates files button as many dupes are there on purpose.
    Not all tmp files will delete – that is normal.

    In the unnecessary button I check the top 4 entries

    Empty the recycle bin
