    Hi

    Can someone help? C drive is now 60+GB out of my 100+GB. It's where Vista is installed.

    Few weeks back, it was running too slow and i switched to XP. In XP, my C drive was only <1GB.

    Then i switched back to Vista cos i could not find many drivers AND i am faced with this issue again...:-(

    Thanks for any help in advance

    Dude i think you have installation problem. When yo are installing any OS over other or re-installing windows vista, you should notice that in some systems it will not overwrite the previously installed version it just installs a fresh copy keeping a side the previous one. so you should check the old windows folder and delete it. Most probably the folder will be named as windows.old.

    dreamstrue is right about this one, it's most likely an installation issue. Follow his tips and you're golden.
