Laptop hard drive issue.

Can someone help me free up some disc space on my hard drive?
It has used 45GB of its 60GB
Documents & Settings has used 14.2 GB
Program files used 6.84GB
Windows used 11.3GB
GPS Map folder 7.78GB

I'm running Disk Cleanup and have ticked all the boxes, but is there anything else I can do in the above folders to free up some disc space up?

I'm running XP not vista.

XP has the SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION folder.

You can use the same tools and methods noted at the link provided.

First thing I see . . .

is the Windows folder. Why 11 Gig? On my three PCs I have around 4 Gig each. If you still have all those XP updates, you can delete them.

Download and install CCleaner, and run it to finish up.
