Remove temporary files: install CCleaner, direct download from and let it run several times. First set this notch also under CCleaner Windows old prefetch data and then let it run.

Next goto Start - Control panel - under Programs: remove Programs and look for any unused programs: uninstall these. My Windows is dutch so this picture is of a dutch version of Win7.

Then goto the folder where you have downloaded your youtube movies and remove very old ones you do not want to see anymore.
Movies tend to be rather big in space.
Now you should have some space again.

If you want to know which files are biggest: install also from Piriform: Defraggler and open it, on the next tab File list you will see a list with the biggest files at the top:

If you have an SSD drive you do not need to run Defraggler to defrag your harddisk, Win 7 will take automatically care of the SSD, on a Sata drive however it is very wise to let Defraggler do its job and reorder the files so that all parts of one file are in line placed on the harddisk, which makes accessing it a lot quicker. So reading time of the data will be some faster ( less waiting time for you).

You might also consider moving your documents and files to another disk. This might be an external harddisk with USB, or a new disk added in your computer, then you need a connector on the motherboard to be available.
Have a look at these movies and info:

Or you will need something like:

Relocating documents to another drive:

Good luck !!

Hi plz could u tell me what are the steps I shoul...

I have the perfect solution for you. Visit this site and download DiskWizard by Seagate. It is made by Seagate but it works for any hard drive.…

Click on English and agree with terms. Once installed, run the software and the program will setup the drive and format/create the partition for you. I have used this program for years and it has never failed me.

Be sure the secondary hard drive's jumper is set to slave as well. You can usually find the jumper settings on the top of the hard drive.

Good luck and I hope this will help you.

There are a lot of Maxtor drives that are bad. Suggest you download Maxtors (MaxBlast 5) utilities software to check the drive.
OR you can also run Seagates software on you're Maxtor drive. Seagate bought Maxtor. Download SeaTools for DOS.
Follow the instruction given online.
Please go through "See the tutorial".

Good Luck!
