XP SP2 - I partitioned my new hd (seagate barracuda 220) last week, set it up as per some common setups mentioned here. I have my XP OS on C:, all my programs on D: - they automatically install there. I have my data on E:. Workspace on F:.
From what I read, 10Gb was plenty for the OS.... but I'm getting worried, I only have 1.5GB left. The only program I actually intentionally installed was ERUNT for registry backups.
I see Messenger, MovieMaker, Netmeeting in there... which I don't need, but don't know how to delete. It doesn't seem they are even installed. I don't need Outlook Express either. Can Windows Media player be installed elsewhere? None of these things seem to be taking up that much space. the Windows folder is the culprit - but there's still only 3.3 gb in there. Tons of the $NTUninstalls. None of the folders seem to have much in them, but the partition has 8.25 gb used. Any ideas? Did I mess this up? I read in multiple places that 10GB was more than enough for the OS. I don't know how to repartition :(
Everything else is working well, my docs is on D, programs are installing correctly. I'm just concerned about that OS partition filling up so fast. Thanks for any advice.
