    In 1993 had a Power Mac with an 8 Gig, yes a whole 8 Gig hard drive. Mind you that was plenty then as there really wasn't an awful lot you could do with it. Plus it was a Mac so you couldn't plug much into it or programme it with.
    Exiled amongst the red and white, at the wrong end of the A/M27.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.........Time to die.

    There are viruses that duplicate files continuously until your hard drive is completely full, which usually renders it useless. Try running an AV scan of some sort, avast and AVG are good free antivirus programmes that may do the job.

    Another solution is to buy a new computer because seriously, windows 98 and only 8gb hard drive... You can get phones that have 4 times as much storage as that mate...

    under 10gb for a whole hard drive
    Take another look at that second pic....I think you'll find that it's over 18GB.

    It's quite remarkable how you've managed to get three mistakes into that part of the sentence. The second pic shows clearly there is over 18GB, it's running XP Home and the computer is perfectly adequate for that; indeed, it was sold with that copy of Windows already on it!

    I'd just recommend getting a bigger hard drive. Having a computer for a number of years the space just goes, every temp file you create (without knowing), every program you install. It just all adds up.

    I've been using Avast and Ccleaner for months, and I've recently installed Spyware Blaster and Spybot.
