Hello --

I have been having memory problems for a while. For the last 2 months or so I have been a little more religious about disk cleanup and disk defrag. I removed old/unused software. And after reading another post here, I just transferred a lot of my files to a separate hard drive. It seems I have some improvement in my memory, although I cannot tell from the stats provided, only that I can move around quicker.

But I would like to do better. I have itunes and a lot of songs on my computer. I'm wondering if I can transfer those to this other extra hard drive, but I'm concerned I could lose all the songs we have purchased over the years in the transfer. Anyone have any experience with this?

Here is my info from my computer:

From System Properies under control panel:
IntelŪ Penium ŪM
Processor 1600 MHz, 221 MHz, 1 GB RAM

From System Information under Accessories:
Total Physical Memory 1024 MB
Available Physical Memory 130.81 MB (I assume this is RAM?)
Total Virtual memory 2 GB
Available Virtual memory 1.96 GB
Page File Space 1.65 GB

Somewhere else I found this:
Processor Speed 599 MHz
which I found confusing as I thought my processor was 1600 MHz

Thanks for the help!


I guess I should add that I'm using MS Windows XP, Professional, V.2002, 5.1.2600
