-DarthMaul-;3979526Um no. I AM getting it. But somehow 10GB is NOT enough for my windows, and there are more updates, and my hardware drivers, and stuff...IS there a soltuion? I know what the problem is :P im not blind this drive is FULL.

Need I quote what you said earlier... "...since alot of things still save on the C Drive, and updates, and when downloading anything from files, music or game demos, they always go into the C Drive first..." This sounds not at all like mere OS updates filling the drive as you just claimed, and no, I don't think it sounds like you really know what the problem is. Sounds to me like you're either not using the Save to... option all the time and/or allowing files to save to the default location rather than directing them to your other drive.

Windows XP does not take anywhere near 10gb by itself. Even if you count all the default programs, all the updates (including the large service packs) you're looking at 3gb or 4 gb. I don't understand why you can do what Omen has been suggesting and just move your files to the other partition? And, in the future, save things to the other partition as well.

I use the Save To option, but the file always is saved in a Temporary Internet Downloads file or whatever, which i slocated on the C drive..it always goes through the C drive before the file is moved by the Save To feature.

And I dont know why the partition is so full.... All I have is Windows XP, eVGA GPU Drivers, Creative SoundBlaster Drivers,and ASUS MoBo stuff, and whatever drivers I failed to mention.

Games, and every thing else, music, whatever are all on my other Drive....so..this doesnt make sense to me...I think I am just going to back up my pictures, internet favorites, and music, and whatever saved games I can, then delete both partitions, and start from scratch..this time with C being atleast 25Gb(I can spare the extra space, besides I dont want it to bite me in the ass in the future)
