Having problems with your Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop ?

I have a Compaq Presario C501NR 32 bit notebook. My question is how can I use disk cleanup to free up 5.51GB of disk space? What can and can't I delete without messing up my system?


Answers :

Using disk cleanup will delete temp files, cookies, internet files but that will not be nowhere close to 5.51 GB, you can use disk clean up to remove windows componets as well. You will have to decide what you need and don't use such as games, etc.

\015\012Is there a particular reason why you need so much space freed up?
If you have a disk cleanup wizard use that as it will automatically delete files u never or seldom use and will not wipe any registry files or other important files, if u just need 5gb i would suggest if you do not have the cleanup wizard to simply delete large unused files such as games
