EDIT:

Additional question:
How many partitions do you have on your main drive, and what do you use them for?

15 + 75 = 90 ...... i'm guessing you mean 15 GB and 65 GB?

partition 1 = 80GB (Windows XP Pro and programs)
partition 2 = 30GB (backup and downloads)

Hahah, sorry about that. Was in a hurry to leave for class.
Yes, I did mean 15+65. I'll correct it in the original post.

and i'm kinda getting the feeling that someone's gonna ask me "why did you make your OS and programs partition so much bigger?", and the reason i did that..... i don't care about what programs i installed. lol. the only backup i've made as of right now is right after i get the very few programs i like to have on my PC on it, such as mIRC and all my required drivers, stuff like that.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
