I have a hard drive space situation. I have two hard drives, C is 16GB and D is 58.5GB. The strange thing is, whenever I download some program that gives me information about my computer physically, it states I have one 80GB HD
. I have found little purpose for cracking my case open, except to install a new video card (went from a SiS 650 integrated chip (thanks computer-clueless parents) to a 256MB nVidia) at which point I didn't even think of checking out the hard drive situation. So I question whether there is just a partition on it that I could boot off, or if it really is two drives. Could they be a master and slave?
Anyway, I wouldn't even care if I wasn't running low on space on C. C has just 435MB of free space, which I am not happy with because I can't defrag it properly nor do I have breathing room to install anything else large. D has 56.6GB of free space (it is completely empty but for Grand Theft Auto 2 (I know I'm out of date, but it's free at their website!)). If I do in fact have two physical drives, what should I move? I have a 2.4GHz P4 and 512MB of RAM, so I don't think this will be too time consuming, but the fragmented C drive is definitely damaging system performance. PC
Pitstop affirms this. I am rather concerned that shifting files to my D drive will screw up filepaths, and I'd like to avoid that inconvenience as much as possible.
The breakdown of space usage on C is as follows:
Documents & Settings: 3.7GB
HJT (HijackThis): 256KB
Program Files: 7.11GB, around half of which is FS2004
ucd: (I question what this is, it doesn't look important, but there is an MS
-DOS icon in it, which makes me hesitant): 1.06MB
1.3GB of Documents and Settings comes from my music collection, which is centrally located and could be easily moved.
As for programs, here are the big players
Flight Simulator 2004: 3.281GB + 799MB of downloaded freeware components
Midtown Madness 2: 389MB + 130MB of downloaded freeware
Office Pro 2003: 414MB
Risk 2: 312MB
Java Runtime Environment: 130MB (was it actually nessecary for me to download this, for java on the internet)
Photoshop Elements 2: 95MB
Adobe Reader 7: 62MB
Anyway, my question is: what should I move? Advice is appreciated.
