Hello,I am the person that will be helping you today.
May I start a secure remote assistance session with you so that I can better help you resolve this problem? When the remote session begins, a chat window will appear that we can use to communicate with each other.
Please, send your reply below in the box. After you type your message, click the Send button.
I offered the remote as a favor to you because if you follow my instructions incorrectly for this task, you are sure to delete data.
I have run out of ideas.
For this reason, I am opting out of the question and allowing another expert the chance to help.
The next expert will see all that is on this page, so there will be no need to repeat anything.
When another expert picks this up, you will be notified by email.
Thank you for your patience.
Jason has opted out of your question. My name is***** and I will try to help you as quick possible. As the previous expert already recommend, I would like to offer you a remote-assistance to fix this issue for you. I saw you weren´t happy about that idea, but it is a good solution to your problem and we can walk through this together, since you are a pro as well. I will show you some programs and places where space can be cleaned up in XP, so that we can possibly compact your database afterwards. Would you agree with that idea possibly now?
Thanks for your patience and best regards,
No, but the most comfortable. I will opt out of your question as well, maybe there is another expert that can do it via text.
Thank you very much and all the best wishes to you,
Another expert here --
Have you tried using the Disk Cleanup tool that is built-in the Windows XP OS?
Open My Computer then Right click on the C drive and select Properties
Click on General tab then Disk Cleanup.
If you need more space, try deleting the temp files.
Click on Start then Run then type temp and press OK
Delete the folders that appear and clear the recycle bin.
Please let me know if that opens up enough space so that you can compact.
Take a look at this program here: https://windirstat.net/download.html
It will tell you exactly what is taking up the space on your hard drive so you can find out what you want to delete to free up space. It is more detailed than opening Add/Remove programs.
I understand but you are in a "catch 22" because compacting will free up space but in order to free up space, you have to delete other files.
Are you able to move some of your iTunes music from your C drive to an external device then move them back after compacting?
This should be your file location: \Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music\
From there, you should be able to cut and paste the files onto an external device.
You're welcome. Please let me know how it goes
