Keep and Increase your hard disk space to speed up your computer

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Increasing hard disk space is not difficult you think. Windows XP provides the tools to check and clear the unnecessary files and program in your computer such as temporary file created by Windows system while you are surfing Internet or any activity doing on your computer, many files in the Recycle Bin and any program that you don’t need to use them anymore. Other reason to keep more space is to be capable to store more files and document you want. Therefore we have six ways to do. Ok, let’s start !

1. Click on Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup, Now Windows XP has to calculate the space you will get after the process, then you can choose the file and program to clean them up and click OK button.

2. Clear all temporary files that you have never used anymore. The easiest way is to open the folder containing the entire temporary file and delete them. Okay, follow the steps. Now you must close any program you are using and click on Start -> Run, then enter %temp% to open the folder and delete all files.

3. Removing unnecessary programs. Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs ,then uninstall any program you don’t want to use it again.

4. Adjust the maximum size of Recycle Bin. Normally the Windows System reserve the hard disk space for Recycle Bin about 20% that is over for me and you, so we can decrease it to be 4% for saving hard disk space 16%. Right click on Recycle Bin icon on Desktop and choose Properties tab. Now you can adjust the size you want it to be.
