Alot of theme games are pretty big, go right click on program files (I asume thats where most of you stuff is installed) and go to properties. Look and see how big it is.

Yep... take a look at your actual drive (right click on it and go to properties) and I bet that the partition that is available for you to use is a lot smaller than you thought it was...

Yea, that could be the problem aswell. If sidetrakd is right you can download partition magic and get the wasted GB's back

There is a chance of clearing up some space. Delete unwanted files, and recoverypoints via the system tools.

I too believe there is a chance you are not seeing your whole disc on that partition. Did you install everything yourself?

Do you have only one disc or more in the machine?

Did you clean out your temp internet files? Over time they can take up a lot of space, and don't forget about your Prefetch folder, again over time that can get considerably large as well.

70gb isn't all that large by todays standards. It may not be a bad idea to invest in a new drive ... just a thought.

do disk cleanup, and go to control panel>add or remove programs, and it will tell you how much space each one takes up. Thats a lot easier than checking the properties of all the folders. I once did disk cleanup and got rid of 2 gigs. But i downlaoded so much crap im down to 1.5 again.

Do a disk cleanup and also use a program called ''CCLEANER'' its lovely and will get you alot of space back i can bet you.

But be careful, ccleaner cleans EVERYTHING. Lke if you had a password saved on a website, itll delete that.
