I have like 2gb of space on my hard drive, and dont know what to do to save space. my drive is sectioned and half is used for backup - pointless i know. so is there any way to delete the sectioned part or get more space? im a gamer and play on steam, so i dont know if i can do anything about the space that takes up since the games are stored in program files, but i have a 70gb external hard drive which i dont know if i can use since most is being taken up by my games my drive is 250gb, of which about 106gb i can use for my own shit, the rest is for the backup. so please help!

Well...


Get rid of the games you aren't using.

Get rid of any unecessary programs.

Clear your internet history.

you can delete the d: partition and expand the c: partition with relative ease,

but you could just get rid of the backups and use the D: drive as it is. Just save your files to there or install any programs there. There shouldn't be any issues.

it's probably better to keep it. If you ever need to reinstall the operating system, you can use the other partition to avoid certain files from being deleted.

If you really want to get rid of that partition, ask the computer thread and tell them what OS you're using.

Delete BLAH BLAH.

That should clear d: of unnecessary files by reintegrating the binary code and relogging the 32/64 DNS server patch of any abnormalities

Steam games are stored in the stea/steamapps/common folder usually.

For a more immediate solution, buy more memory. Its cheap as hell.

I don't know too much about computers, but isn't the point of backing up your hard drive is in case the drive fails? So having your back-up on the same hard drive would not be very effective. So get an external hard drive and back-up using that and delete the :d partition. Or like Lemoninfluence suggested, just use the d: drive like you use the c: drive.

You can buy and install a new hard drive? They're pretty cheap.

Edit: Unless you're running a laptop, I guess. You didn't specify, so I dunno.
When some stranger on the internet says it is so, it must be so.
