Okay... I am about half way through the Tweakguide ... amazing stuff... informative, yet provoking some questions too.
Right now I am trying to clean up my C: (which has only 19% free space) transferring some content to E: (at about 84% free right now) I have over the past 2 years without much guidance gotten frustrated and deleted directly from C: as well as from the control panel -- add/delete programs.
(Sorry I don't seem to be able to say this proficiently.)
Well, right now I have found about 31 blue 2 drawer icons for Direct X files on my C: (titles are very similar to these and vary from dxdllry_x86 to April 2006_MDX1_x86_Archive to April 2005_d3dx9_25x64.)
I believe they are 'DirectX' and I don't believe I use or need DirectX, but before I move all 31 to the recycle bin, I want to confirm if this is the way to go about this. I couldn't find anything here about Direct X, but on another site I read that it is very hard to delete DirectX.
Earlier I was trying to uninstall a bunchof games ... which are not used on my computer and at one point I couldn't get the add/delete programs icon to open anymore... so I abandoned the issue.
I moved a bunch of pictures around today and now I have a lot of fragmented files, but I am only about half way finished with it .. moving the pics from C: to E: ... I wanted to move the entire program from C: to E: but I couldn't figure out how to do it. I thought about installing the program again and hoping for a chance to designate E: but I didn't try.
Well, I have like 19 G between C: and E:, C: being larger, of course.
I had Win 98 upgraded to XP .. can I delete the old files for 98? This is always offered as a part of the checkdisk cleanup...
