Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
My smaller drive the F drive where the main sytem compenets are stored keeps filling up slowing my computer down i wanna wipe it clean and start or just restore to factory settings
If I am not mistaken the OS should be on Drive "C". Do you have two HDD or more than one partition on drive "C". Drive "F" would be further down the list. Anyway I would just add a larger HDD for storage because you you will probably need it sooner or later. Or maybe add an external HDD. Un-install any programs you you are not using. Clean out "C" of cookies and all that other stuff that accumulates. Then DE-FRAGMENT the drive. That should speed things up. If the unit works OK I would avoid a re-install because as you can see in these troubleshooting pages, re-installing can be a can of worms in itself.
