HARD DRIVE GETTING FULL

by webwader / July 21, 2005 10:40 PM PDT

I HAVE A 5 YR OLD GATEWAY G6-450 WINDOWS 98 I WOULD LIKE TO UPGRADE TO A DIFFERENT WINDOWS OS BUT AM AFRAID TO DO THIS I DON'T KNOW WHAT I HAVE TO DO TO DO THIS. LIKE WHAT IS THE FIRST STEP ETC. WILL I LOSE ANYTHING OFF MY HD IF I UPGRADE AND IN ADDITION MY HD IS GETTING FULL, I HAVE A SECOND HD BUT MY C DRIVE HAS ONLY 2.4 GB LEFT OUT OF A 14.4 ORIGINAL GB. I DON'T KNOW WHAT I CAN SAFELY DELETE FROM THE HD TO GIVE ME MORE SPACE CAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT A LOT OF THE STUFF ON THERE MEANS. CAN ANYONE GIVE ME A LIST OF THINGS THAT ARE ON A C DRIVE OTHER THAN OBVIOUS THINGS LIKE GAMES, PHOTOS ETC. THAT CAN BE REMOVED WITHOUT HARMING THE OS. THANKS JAN

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
