I'd post again in the Windows forum that matches or the Computer Help Forum.
Why not turn system restore off then back on to see if that shakes a few GB free?
I have a Sony Vaio laptop. It has 14GB in all and it is almost full. (800mb). I have bought a Seagate "GO" external portable hardrive. (640GB)I also have bought Cakewalk Music Creator 5, with the intentions of installing it to the external hardrive. Every time I try though, it tells me there is not enough space, despite the fact that I am installing it to a 640 GB external drive. I have no idea what to do. I am running Windows XP and both the drive and the program meet the computer's system requirements. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
