30 Gbyte Hard drive is really insufficient for XP. You can use it if you want, but you will have to reformat it. I suggest that you get a larger Hard Drive if you can afford it. IDE drives are cheap. CDW or Newegg or others can help you for a small amout of money you can get an 80 Gbyte or larger drive. I use 250 or 200 Gbyte and I have almost 26 Gbyte on them. I hope this helps.
My computer os is windows XP the drive is a 30 GB when I installed it I had to format it and now I only see 2.15 gb how do get to use the entire drive I have nothing on it so if it comes to reformating to do it a differnt way I will.
thanks for the help
