1.) Download/run TreeSize (freeware) to determine what files are using up the space, then delete as needed.
2.) Your registry is under 1GB in size and a registry cleaner will save but a few MBs, if that, while risking the deletion of keys/entries that are needed for Windows and installed applications to run normally. Unless you review and fully understand what it is deleting, it is best avoided.
3.) Note that "memory" refers to RAM while "storage" refers to hard drive space. Interchanging the terms can lead to irrelevant search results and answers if you, and others, are not careful.
4.) Having too many fragmented files will not cause a defrag utility to fail, but not having enough free space to work with will. Track down and delete the files taking up the space and that problem should disappear.
Hello everyone, I have encountered a huge problem on my pc. I h ave windows XP. It's been slowly using memory. It's a 40 gig hard drive and I currently have 3 gigs! I have got rid of every program, picture, music.. you name it. I've deleted files, cleaned my registery, temp files, deletd old restore points you name and I've done it.
I downloaded a defragging utility (Auslogics Disk Defrag) and it couldn't defrag because I have too many fragmented files. Is there ANYTHING, any program you suggest that I download that could help my pc. I am at my wits end on this and could really use some help.
Thanks everyone so much!
