    My drive E is full. I tried to install a program [Microsoft LifeCam] and they said free up hard disk space. My computer is Acer Aspire. 320 hard drive. 2 GB memory. I assume I should clean Drive E. How do I do that? Drive C & D have a lot of open space. Any advice would be appreciated,Thank You

    Open MY COMPUTER so you can see the list of drive icons.

    What are the letters and names of the list of drives?

    Right-click each drive icon and then click Properties. What's listed for the size and the amount of free space?

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Newer computers come with the hard drive in 2 partitions. The C partition is the main partition and contains the operating system and programs. The D partition is much smaller and is the recovery partition that contains the files for doing a system recovery back to original factory specs.
