Freeing up hard drive space

Post by phil1993 » 14 May 2009, 17:47

:wave:

I have Vista...

I have 3-ish GB left of space and need that for a new rfactor mod, does anyone know how I can free up about 2gb of space?

there are many ways, you could try the add/remove windows components (in control panel), or try looking at the windows/temp -or- documents and settings/[user]/temp folder and check if junk files have accumulated (mine had almost 1 gig of thrash files before)

or if everything else fails, i dunno....:D try to sacrifice uninstall some programs or format your pc and install windows xp-just kiddin' :lol: :D

I purchased a 1/2 TB external last week for $87 at staples... You can't go wrong with an external drive.
