I just acquired (for free) a used Lenovo 3000 v100 (T2300, 1.66GHz) running XP Pro SP3. No disks included. I upgraded the memory, repaired the keyboard.Everything runs fine, and I went through both existing user accounts deleting any documents/pictures/music, also uninstalled programs I know I won't use.
Here's the main issue. The hard drive is nominally 100GB. When I click on my computer, it shows that, while the hard drive has 88GB usable, the free space is only 24.9GB. How do I find out what's taking up all the space, and get it back? I haven't yet changed/deleted the user accounts, in case that's the only way to get to the "hidden" files (which, of course, don't show up after telling it to "show hidden files and folders").
I could, of course, discover the Windows Key Code, format, and reinstall XP (would need to find appropriate drivers, though), but it has some other programs (e.g. Microsoft Office Suite, et al) that I would lose and wouldn't be able to replace.
Also, I'd like to be able to remove the games that came with it, which don't show up in "Add or Remove Programs".
More details available if you need them.
Any ideas tor dealing with these issues?
