Cleaning Up Your Disk

Like any storage place (think closets, garages, and basements), eventually the clutter starts to overwhelm you, and you need to get rid of stuff you don't need. The same is true for your hard disk(s). You should periodically clean out files you don't need. To help with this task, you can clean up some temporary files, empty your Recycle Bin, and find some other hidden nooks and crannies of Windows that take up storage space.

Windows XP makes it easy to get rid of files you don't need with the Disk Cleanup Wizard. When you use this wizard, Windows XP recommends some files for deletion, as well as lists the disk space you'll gain. You can select from the list of items suggested for deletion and then have Windows XP remove these items to regain that disk space.
