Thanks to all who can offer any input to my problem. I recently inherited an older and smaller PC (Compaq Presario 5340). It had Win98 as the OS and 128 Mb RAM. I uninstalled the 98 and installed XP and Firefox. All went well and seemed to operated perfectly until this little sign kept popping up saying I was very low on disk space. I went to Start>Explore and saw I had 2 drives, C&D. C drive is only 2.64 gigs and is NTFS. D drive is also NTFS. C drive shows, under Disk Management, to be the Healthy System and D drive is the Healthy Boot. C is the Primary Petition according to the little colored square at the bottom of the window while D is the Logical Drive. D drive is only 1.36 gigs and it has 0 free space whereas C is almost all free space. Apparently XP loaded onto D where there is a Windows folder that is larger than 481 Mb. There is also a Windows folder on C and it is 407 Mb. Whenever I try to download anything onto the PC, it automatically tries to go to D so it doesn’t download for lack of space. I went to Tools>options and changed the “download to….” From D to C but still downloads persist on going to D. How do I remove this partition so that I only have one drive? I can’t download a program that will help and it is a real problem. Thank you again for your help. Sincerely, Tony
