Does freeing up Hard Disk space speed up computer??
Question Posted Monday January 25 2010, 11:36 pm
Hi I just had a quick question.
I have a Windows Vista, 2.66ghz dual core laptop with 4 GB of RAM, and a 400GB hard drive.
My hard disk space is almost full. I was wondering does it really make a difference,in regards to my computers performance, if I free up space in my hard drive? And if so how much of it should I keep free?
Thanks for the help.
I'm pretty boggled you filled up 400 GB of hard drive though.
If you have that much stuff running, I suggest you buy an external hard drive (50 dollars) and put it all there so you can run a cleaner tidier computer.
Also I suggest you run windows 7 instead because it's way faster than vista. Think of vista as a shot in open water, and windows 7 was the corrected version. Windows 7 actually takes up less memory than windows xp. So that does say something.
