Really. I have this and found it to not take up space.
So what space did you find it to take up?
I wonder if you are including some backup OS image since the actual app is not much bigger than much else today.
About 2 GB
It takes about 2 GB in all. I just want to free up some space!
Here it's under a few hundred meg.
I haven't looked at it in months. I bet you are included some items it backs up. Maybe some deeper inspection is needed but feel free to toss it once you have your system image backed up since inside this app is your backup and restore...
I have never backed up anything on Acer empowering tech. When I say 2 GB, this includes all of these apps:
And Acer eEnergy
Anyway, Should I just delete them through Windows "Uninstall or Remove", or should I use a special program to delete them?
Now remove ERECOVERY from your total.
That includes your restore files... Which I feel you shouldn't be without.
Remember I have a pair of Acers to compare. I won't do all your work for you but can look and compare.
Ok fine... But I have another question
Ok... You are right! The only reason that I want to get rid of it is because my Hard drive is only 80 GB, plus it is separated into 32GB partitions. This means that my space is limited!!! But I understand your point. I actually have another question: Do you know any good free software allowing me to "fuse" my two partitions into one? I know that this is sort of off topic, but I don't think that there is any need to post a new forum!
AFTER you backup...
You can research use of Partition Magic or GPARTED. One of our acers is split 30-30 on a 60GB drive. For us this is a non-issue since it's used to run presentations. I didn't check the other...
Glad you are dissecting the estuff on your own. Saves me a lot of time.
One FINAL thing
Thank you for your help! I am a novice at this partitioning thing, so I will go with Norton's Partition Magic. Now what do you mean by "backup"? Do you mean use Windows backup utility, or acer's backup utility?(laugh)
I mean a backup of the DISK IMAGE!!!
Something you can put back if it goes all south.
Look up G4U on google. "It's what I use." After the backup, look up GPARTED.
As I said,I am a novice at these sort of things! Is there any backup program that is easier to use?
