Hi, thanx all. My understanding of how a pc works is limited but am trying
all as u suggest, thanx. The problem I'm having is......every week I do a
scan disk and defrag. I've noticed that once defraged since a few weeks ago I
HAVE GONE from over 70% free space down to only under 40%....I don't run any
major software at the moment BUTDO use the internet on ADSL most days BUT
not to any great extent. The only connection I can c is this copying Dig pix
straight to disc...Am I right or is there sumthing else going on..cheers Andy

Is a Norton product installed - specifically the Norton protected
recycle bin? This holds copies of deleted files. Empty that. Also
look at the amount of space allocated to system restore and temporary
internet files.

Try running a search for large file or folders. Tell us what and where they
are.
