My pc tells me that I'm running out of hard drive

\015 My ancient pc tells me that I'm running out of hard drive space. I've done some cleaning up. Should I get an external hard drive or interna? Also, would the external drive move all the software from the internal one to the it? My internal drive has just under 10 Gb's. It's windows xp.I can't see what make it is, other than it's compaq 'evo'.\015

Answers :

You can use either.

You can also use external portable hard disk, you can move all your software and stuff to it.

Better would be installing a new operating system to new hard **** with larger capacity, it will make your system fast.

You can also fit hard disk in your computer PC cabinet, you will just need to set it as "Slave" or secondary hard disk, to do this, setting is available on the hard disk.

You can go for both driver internal as well as external......the thing is what type of data you have stored in 10 gb hdd......if its user data file then you can move it to other external or internal hdd.....if you have installed some heavy software or program then you need to internal hard drive. because you can not copy installed software from one drive to other....for tis you have to install windows on other internal hard drive with bigger size like 160 gb or 250 or 320 gb.....its your wish which one you chose according to your need....

I have an E-Machine desktop PC that is failing to boot. It is running on windows 2000. When it starts booting, it says that one of the files needed for booting is missing. It further tells me to run a setup disk to repair the missing file. The problem is that when I run a setup disk, just before it displays the window that prompts me either to press Enter for OS setup or R for repair, it is presenting with a blue screen. I tried to use other setup disks, no change. I also tried to scan the hard
