Hello,
Many apologies if this is poor netiquette/protocol piggy backing on another guys thread.

I have a UMPC (ASUS eee) and my C drive seems to be 0Mb (on a 4GB drive)
I reckon I 've followed (most) suggestions above.

I have:
turned off system restore
no paging file
redirected Temps to the D drive
redirected My Documents to the D drive
Attempted to install all progs to the D drive (but I bet good old MS still put DLLs in sysem on C?)
deleted $ntuninstall folders
run MBAM

I'm reasonably computerate - the only thing that I've never messed around with is the recycle bin. I have it as 'Use one setting for both drives', is this best?

The other day I deleted a $nt.. folder and I'm sure that for a split second I saw 700mb free, when I went into my computer it read 400mb free and within a few hours was back to 0mb free.

I ran that WinDirStat and it shows a windows\installer folder of 1Gb, is this needed?

Any other suggestions?

thanks

AlanLeon
apologies again if I meant to start a new thread

Hi,
I took this to Beijing in 2008 and was happily running the (few) programs I needed.
I thought that 4GB WAS enough for XP.

I don't remember partitioning it so it must have come partitioned.

I usually install and run partition managers when I want this feature

I dimly remember reading that one shouldn't mix partition managers, so how do I reallocate the partitions?

thanks

AlanLeon

The bottom line is, you need bigger drive. Running XP on 4GB drive is close to insanity :thumbsup:

Same opinion as broni's here, definitely get a bigger hard drive. What are your exact system specs so that i can recommend a few hard drives (western digital is the best). :thumbsup:
