Hi,

How big is your C drive, 6GB seems quite low never mind 1.8GB

If you download/run and scan with Free Tree size - TreeSize Free - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Downloads

You will be able see where your memory is being used up, this will help clean and free some space up.

Try running that Tree Size, it will help identify where space is being used up:

Just click scan and then select the drive/partition

Check this thread out over @ Vista forums, it explains what page file is and how to change/move to another hard drive/partition but i don't think your page file is too big although i have never had to look into it too much to be honest.

is your C drive a partition or physical disk?

I would suggest cleaning up as much as possible and then moving any media files to your other partitions (D and E)

If you find that you are still struggling to keep within your 30GB C drive then i would look at increasing this space.
If you do take this route there are a lot of threads on this that may help but you could always open your own thread requesting help on this.

I have never changed partition sizes on a live system before, only ever created them during a clean install so i wouldnt want to confuse things with sketchy instructions but there are some experts at this around here
