    Go to My Computer, right click the drive you want and select properties. There should be a tab for scandisk or it's 2000 equivelent.

    Go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools and choose whichever cleanup you need.

    Hi tracey2000, welcome to TSG.

    I don't think I'd be worrying too much now about clean-up....you need to start backing up anything you want to save....the drive is on it's way to hard drive heaven.

    Most drives have 3 year warranties, go to the manufacturer's website and key in the S/N from your drive....it should tell you if it's still under warranty.
