That does not answer my question.

How big is your C: Local Disk drive in GB's?

How much spare space has it got left?

Is the harddrive in your pc (or is it a laptop?) partitioned? If so what are the partitions (D: E: ?) and how many GB's is each partition?

Is your data (My Documents) folder on the C: local disk

Do you have any other separate internal harddrives? (inside the pc tower)

What is the make and model of your pc/laptop?

Are you getting any messages pop up, if so what do they say?

Note: you need to refer to harddrives or partitions with their letter, C: D: E: F: etc it is no good just calling them 'local disk' as that just means the drive does not have it's own name.

You seem to have plenty of space left if you still have 36GB spare from 60GB on C: however if D: is empty and not used -

You could move your My Documents folder permanently to D: if you wanted to.
