    6GB+

    Hey, I need to free 6, if possible more, gigabytes from my computer, to be able to reinstall Spore. I've gone to Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program, and I've got rid of many things, consisting of many MB. Hundreds, infact. I have Vista, by the way. Anyway, are there any ways to, well, get rid of all files? Like, start again? Though, with the basics like internet etc etc. So...yeah. Any help will be appreciated, and if you can't help, just leave, thanks.

    6MB+ cleared, or all cleared. Thanks.

    Have you tried CCleaner? http://www.ccleaner.com/

    Running it just once can clear several GB of files.

    Ah, yes. I thought that would crop up.

    Anyway, I've just run it, it hasn't really made a difference. Infact, installing it took more memory than clearing it did, for me, anyway.

    Thanks Niall, but more help is needed .

    How much space do you have on your computer? You must not have much.

    Just go to your biggest folder, sort it by file size, and delete the biggest files that you don't want. That should be good.

    Data is basically the files stored on your computer or like statistics.

    Data usually comes in these units:

    MB
    KB
    GB etc.

    You either have 2 haddrives or 1 harddrive that has been partitioned.

    You have 60~ GB space on your harddrive. Just install Spore on your D: drive.

    Yeah Skype's right. You must've partitioned the drive into two different drives.

    Good luck.
