Re: how do I free up space on my computer

It sounds like time to buy an external 500GB hard drive.  This would give you allot of storage for your personal data.


In the meantime, you can delete programs that you don't use regularly that are installed on your C drive.  Go into the "Control Panel"/Add or Remove Programs".  On F and G, like I said, move allot of the data to an external hard drive.  I have a Maxtor, OneTouch 4, 500GB USB 2.0 hard drive.  It came with software to automatically backup your data.  I also have two USB thumb drivers; 2GB and 8GB.  I use them to backup and store other pertinent data.

HP TouchPad - 1.2 GHz; 1 GB memory; 32 GB storage; WebOS/CyanogenMod 9

HP Omen Gaming Laptop - i7-4710HQ; 8 GB memory; Samsung 128 GB SSD; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M; Win 8.1

HP Phoenix ENVY 810-135qe - i7-4770K (liquid cooled); 8 GB memory; GT 640 (4 GB), SSD (Samsung EVO 840-500 GB); 600W PSU; Win 7 Pro

HP Photosmart 7520 AIO
