Windows 7: Out of Room - Now What?

Out of Room - Now What?

I seem to be in the "dire straits" in regard to the amount of room I have on my PC. I use a Dell Optiplex 760 tower, with Win 7 Pro OS, 64-bit, dual partition. Yes, I'm familiar with many various software programs which show HOW the space is being used on my PC; however, not being extremely tech savvy, these do me little good, as I'm usually always left in a quandary about eliminating "this or that" from the system without full knowledge about it.

So, I really don't know what to do at this point (????). I have scrutinized my installed programs, and it seems that I need everyone of them.

Attached is a screenshot of both C and E. Any suggestions would be extremely appreciated. Thanks so much.

You can make E smaller and assign that saved space to C.

Most likely you'd need Partition Wizard to do it. A free download.

Post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management so we can get a better look at your partitions.

As ignatzsonic says, resizing your partition would be your best bet. However, make sure you have everything backed up before doing so.

Looks like you have a 240GB or so sized drive there which is small by today's standards. You should do what was suggested (shrink E:, expand C: ) but you should also consider getting a larger drive. For instance, here's a 500GB drive for $55: Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive - Newegg.com

Excellent idea but, if the OP doesn't already have one, I would rather see him buy an external drive or similar arrangement to back up his computer's drive first.
