Hi

I tried to free up space on my hardrive by removing programmes that I do not use and moving files that contained all my videos and pictures to an external hardrive. When I went in to my computer to see how much space I had gained it showed no increase. This is strange as the amount of pictures I had were vast. Could anybody tell me the reason for this.

Many thanks

Paul

You also might delete many of your old XP restore points as well. Only keep the most recent one , as long as your system is operating as you like it.

Hi and thanks for your reply.

I rebooted and defragmented but no change. I have not deleted any restore points as yet but will try that next.

Try emptying your recycle bin.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
