When any container is too full...the solution is to move some of the contents...somewhere else.
If you are running out of disk apace on C:, then I suggest moving data files (music, videos, etc.) somewhere else (another drive, another partition, CD, DVD, etc.).
It's generally recommended that XP have about 15% free space to function effectively.
If you are running XP's System Restore function...that uses up space.
If you have hibernation enabled, that uses up partition space.
If you don't empty the Recycle Bin on the Desktop, that uses up partition space.
The best alternative is to move video files, graphics files, and music files to a different location, IMO. those will be the largest files on a system.
One tool you can use to see what the largest files are: TreeSize Pro Trial - http://www.jam-software.com/treesize/
