I want to thank Jupiter Jones for this information. I spent at least 20
hours this week on line or on the phone with Microsoft support personnel and
my computer manufacturer explaining that the free space on my C drive dropped
from 94% to 43% after I did 3 system restores to correct problems I was
having with Outlook. Although they were very helpful, nothing they
recommended worked and I was told that I would have to reinstall the whole
operating system. I was so upset and then I found this newsgroup site,
searched for Q&A's under System Volume Information and found the info posted
by J.J. I followed the instructions and now I am delighted to say that I am
back to 94% free space. Thank you so-o-o-o-o much!!
