    Running out of HD space

    I have 3gb of hard drive space left after downloading the patches . I cannot understand what is my computers problem I am not going to have enough room to install cata form the disk unless I find space on my HD . Ok now my computer is 4 years old and I only have a 70Gb hard drive . getting a new computer is not an option right now . I dont have porn , games or anything large on my hard drive just a few small programs here and there mayeb that total 3-4 gigs ...other then that all i have is windows .

    Wow takes up like 22Gb of my hard drive so i figure between what i can account for I should have about maybe at most 30 gigs being used ...where is the other 40 gigs ? I have looked in every folder I can find and there is nothing taking up space ? Does window hide garbage in places and can anyone give me an idea how to find where windows is hiding 40 gigs worth of crap ?? Thanks

    Not that awesome with computers but Windows will take up a small chunk on the HDD but first 2 things to do would be Run disk Clean up and Disk Defragment. After both of them if you havnt run them in a while will probaly free up a few Gigs of memory.

    Always option of buying an External Hard drive they load a bit slower then the actaul Hard drive in your computer but will give you alot more space to put things and a Decent one wouldnt cost more then $80 Aussie

    Good ideas thank you . I will look into the disk stuff and also I will look at how useful external hard drives are . ive not used one in years and years but they used to be almost useless guess I will see ..lol

    Try seeing what ccleaner has to say.

    But really get a bigger harddrive. They are dirt cheap. Find or burn out your recovery DVD and install windows on the new drive.
