No space left on hard drive. Ran Windows Directory Stats program to discover that 45 GB being used by .msp files. What are those files and can they be manipulated to free up some disk space?

Hello strainer,

According to http://www.fileinfo.net/extension/msp .msp's are associated with windows system files.

http://windirstat.info/ is a great tool for finding out where all the space goes. Run a full scan and see if there is anything else that could be filling up space.

http://www.atribune.org/index.php?option=c...5&Itemid=25 is a good tool to free up some space.
