jcbaldwi,

Welcome to SevenForums.

Would you be so good as to post a copy of the disk management output as explained in this writeup?

VERY IMPORTANT is that you drag the field separators so that we get all of the detail.



HOW TO POST A SNAPSHOT OF DISK MANAGEMENT DISPLAY

Run disk management:
WIN | type DISKMGMT.MSC | ENTER
WIN is the key with the wavy flag.

Maximize the output of Disk Management:
ALT-Spacebar key combo (this pops up a menu) |
X key (selects Maximize) |
Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field. This is very important, otherwise, needed info is not visible.

Make a snapshot:
WIN | type SNIPPING | ENTER
Click the New button.
Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
File | Save as | select save location and name | Save button

Post the snapshot:
Click on the paperclip icon in that row of icons at the top of the message box.
Click on a BROWSE button. There are 5 of them.
Navigate to the folder containing the snapshot.
Click on the snapshot.
Click on the OPEN button.
Click on the UPLOAD button adjacent to the 5th BROWSE button.
Close the MANAGE ATTACHMENTS window.
Position the cursor at the spot in the message where you want the
snapshot to appear.
Click on the PaperClip again.
Click on the file which you want to insert
Attach code will be inserted into your message.

For a quick overview of what is using up what on you disk, download and run:


WinDirStat - Windows Directory Statistics


I'll get back with some specifics on freeing up space, but an excellent tool is : CCleaner. This is a free program, used by nearly all here. Link is in my sig.
