Hi all. I remember reading a post on here that detailed a few options to free up disk space on your HD. I can't seem to find it on here but any recommendations would be helpful. I think it had an option to disable some paging system if I remember correctly?

Best thing to do is find out what's taking up the most space, and move that onto another drive if you have it. Also think about removing any apps you don't use anymore.

From start screen type "clean"

Click on "control panel" and a results list containing "disk cleanup" appears.


Or select same from Administrative Tools menu.


Follow directions and select which items to delete.
