I need help freeing up some space on my disk

I am trying to install some games from Steam, but I can't because their is not enough space. Does anyone have any advice for what I should do?

either install a second hard drive or get rid of something you don't need

those are the only solutions shy of dumping it all

Buy another hard and add it to your system...it's simple, cheap and easy to do.

Just delete crap you don't need, or that you won't use. My friend gave me a great quote: "When in doubt, throw it out."

Agreed to a certain extent...but it's been know to turn around and bite you in the A** every now and then.

Try defragmenting and running disk cleanup. Also download CCleaner and run it regularly to keep your computer free of useless temporary files and other junk. Obviously buying an extra hard drive would be a good choice but they're ridiculously expensive at the moment because of flooding in the computer component manufacturing areas of Asia. Not a good time to be buying memory...
