Is it or is it not possible to delete fragmentation of internal hard disk, when remaining files and folder inside each part, without damaging or loosing them? I need urgently to open more space for my internal hard disk. Many thanks and greetings

Defragmenting the hdd can clean up some of the clutter, but if your hdd is getting full then you have some choices, store some of the files on removable media like CDs, DVDs, a flash drive, or you can install another hdd.

You need to have about fifteen percent free space on the hdd for file swap space, if you get below this the hdd starts to struggle to work and slows down.

Edit: I just notice in your other topic in this forum that you list a F: drive, if you have this external hdd just transfer files that you don't use regularly to it.

When transferring files and folders from C to external F, WHICH FOLDERS AND FILES CANNOT BE TOUCHED IN ORDER TO NOT SPOIL THE PC FUNCTION? I mean which ones are the system functioning indispensable ones? This question is because there are many "strange" folders appart of programs that cannot be installed in other hard disks because they do not offer the option (Microsoft Office, MSN, Google Talk, etc. Can I just copy "documents and settings" without ruining some function linked to this folder? Do they remain linked from the external one? Sorry. Many thanks and regards.

Many thanks. Yes, I have a new 80G external HD but I am afraid in transferring anything from C (where there are only the system and the applications that cannot be addressed to D [Microsoft Office, Google Talk, Messenger, etc., etc and many other ones that mysteriously filled it up]). That was the reason because I was asking for help to tell me which are the untouchable folders in order to not make a real big mistake at transferring. I have already transferred successfully from D, "my documents", "my download files" and installed the new downloadings. But touching the famous C (that's full), concerns me a little. Many thanks and best regards. "Thanks God"..., a technician friend of mine is in the city and will come tomorrow for arranging everything. Then I will rest a little bothering you all great people really kind ones.
