Always save important files onto stick/CD/DVD or whatever.Then do a Defrag and check results afterwords. Then switch off System Restore. Do another Defrag and check results afterwords. See what couldn't be defragmented (usually nothing) but if there are, find the locations of where the directories and files are and delete them. MOST importantly Turn on System Restore and make a restore point because you wont have any. Then see if you have gained space back on drive. If that doesn't work then reinstall Windows, and maybe don't use Norton.
I have a 270gb C drive that has a large (250gb) file left over by Norton Internet security (I think). The files is located in C:\RECYCLER\NPROTECT. This folder is hidden and is labeled a "System File." How do I get rid of this file/folder? I have only a little over 1gb of free space on my C drive. Thanks in advance for HELP!
