Hello,

I am about to install XP on my lappie. I only have a 5gb disk..I need any help/advice with regards to any tweaks that i can do so that i don't use too much of my disk.

Welcome to the forums rakster. Have fun. :)

1/ Turn off hibernation if you are not going to use it.
Disable Hibernation to Save Space
Unless you use it, you can disable hibernation in :
Control panel > Power Options > Hibernate
If left on, the hybernation reserves disk space equal to your RAM

2/ Turn off system resotre if you don't want it.
Right click my computer/properties/sytem restore.

Dumping the dll cache will save on about 400 meg
C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache

open a command prompt window & type
sfc /purgecache
---------------------
definitely disable restore
back up your drive to CDs' using a drive image program like
PowerQuest DriveImage 2002

:cool:
