    I am running Compaq.Which is a Presario.Also Windows XP.
    Hard drive is 80 GB. I have a Drive C, and a Drive D. Drive C
    has plenty of free space. But Drive D free space is about used
    up. Drive D has a capacity of 4.95 GB. It is showing free space
    at 937 MB. Is there a way to clean Drive D ? Thank You

    Why do you need space on this particular drive?

    you really need a partition
    manager so that you can
    resize that small partition
    and make it larger.

    however, to provide you
    with a direct answer to
    your question,

    I would create a folder on
    the c drive and call it something
    like ddrive.

    then move all the contents
    on the d drive to the new
    folder above.

    What is on Drive D:? What do you mean by "clean" it? Do you want to
    delete everything there?

    Did drive D: come with what's on it now when you first got the
    computer? If so, almost certainly, it's your recovery partition, and
    it's there to let you reinstall Windows if you ever need to. You got
    that instead of an installation CD.

    If that's what it is, do not do *anything* to drive D:.
