Just curious,

I was going through my add/remove programs to see if there were any programs I could remove to free up some space, and noticed I have both Microsoft. Net Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2, and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 2(oh yeah and also 1.1). Can the the 1.1, & the 2.0 versions be removed without causing any harm?

The 1.1 version can be removed...if you have 3.5, SP1 installed, the 2.0 is part of that and cannot be removed.

FWIW: Removing programs...typically does not add much hard drive space. Moving video files from the C: partition is the best way to increase available space on C:, IMO.

Literally, there is no reason at all to have data files in My Music, My Documents, My Videos, etc. on C:, those files can be accessed from any partition. Windows creates those folders as part of the Documents & Settings folder group, but the content of such does not have to remain in those folders. Those folders were created as a legacy from the days when systems only had 1 partition/1 drive on the system and were designed to be a convenient way of separating/grouping those types of files.
