Answers :

As previously stated you are getting your RAM memory (which is memory your computer uses to store files temporarily) with your Hard Drive memory (which is where all your files and docs are saved.\015\012\015\012You can do as he said to check your hard drive space, but also notice you migh have 2 local drives, such as C and D both marked local disk, orhave the same representing image.\015\012\015\012Now 256Mb of ram is pretty low for running Windows XP\015\012\015\012if you re looking to upgrade either of this, a good way to know how much your coputer can handle, or what type of what to install is to download a program called PCWizard which can downloaded legally from This link (click here) \015\012\015\012if you need any help using this program or looking at info about ur computer you can contact me at [email protected]
You seem to be a little mixed with your question,256MB refers to your memory, which applications use to work, but when you mention download space, you would be refering to your hard drive space.\015\012\015\012If you right click on My Computer, then click on explore, then look at your 'C' drive it will tell you how much space you have left.\015\012\015\012If you are running Windows XP 512MB of memory is adequate, unless you are photo or video editing, or using memory hungry programmes, in which case 1GB would be better for performance, depending on the maximum amount your motherboard will allow.
