    I don't know, but somehow I have 5 Megabytes out of 5 gigabytes of space left on this drive. While I don't use this to store anything and such, I have noticed that it is slowing the system down. I don't what has caused this because about 1 year before I remember seeing it with only about 23% used. I have a Windows XP, from hp. Normally I would just manually clear some space up but it warns me that deleting something could totally destroy the usage of recovery if I ever wanted to again, but I hate the fact that it's making my system slow. Got anything for me?

    Download ccleaner from www.ccleaner.com

    It's a free and safe program that should help.

    Thanks, I mean it's kinda sad... I have Windows Registry Cleaner (trial), Ad-Aware, ZoneAlarm, Norton Anti, Windows Defender, Spyware Doctor, SpySubtract, and 3 Extensions on Mozilla to prevent this kind of stuff from happening... and look where it got me =]

    That won't help with temp files and cache... those things fill up your hard drive space very quickly!

    That's where ccleaner comes in!

    K but also, I don't know, but it should all just go to the C drive, not D drive, the computer recommended me to use the Automatic Cleaner thingie, and all of the things cleanable were 0kb, but we'll give this a try
