I tried to restart my computer from scratch but I ended up in the H drive, which has so little memory. Anyways I need help getting back to using my C drive, I can access files in the C drive, but not save into it or do any kind of work in in. I'd be willing to restart from scratch again, and reinstall everything. The memory shortage is really an issue. I have a pretty basic computer with XP on it, and..512 MB, 80 GB 7200 RPM. I don't know if this helps with solving my problem, as you can probably tell by everything I've just said that I don't know very much about these machines. Anyways, Help Please! Thanks ahead of time.

Hello! Are all those partitions on the 80 gb drive? If so, and you have your data backed up and a restore cd, you can reinstall xp and delete all the partitions when you get to the format portion of the install. Make sure you don't have any hidden partitions that you need (my HP does] before you delete some thing you need.
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.

Thanks for the help, I do have the discs, the problem I think I was having was getting past the password (or administrators code) when I do install, but I read on this site on how to lower the security setting to bypass this. I really hope it works. If you have any other advice, please enlighten me. If not, thanks again!
