Please remember to edit any replies you send to the list whenever possible. bf has a laptop, maybe 3-4 years old, and he's running out of space. I know that it's a Toshiba, with ~6.4 gigs, but it has one of those stupid restore partitions taking up over 2 g and he's down to <900 megs on C:. Is it even possible to expand HD space on a laptop? I think it has USB ports (well, surely it does, it's Win 98) - perhaps there is some expansion gadget he could get? His pc card slot is already full w/a replacement modem (his got knocked out during a storm). I really would like to avoid reformatting everything, since I honestly doubt he has any idea where his restore cds are. TIA... Merin http://www.soap-junkie.com I never fail. I succeed at finding what doesn't work. --Christopher Titus - Users can unsubscribe from this list by sending email to 24hoursupport-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface at http://web.tampabay.rr.com/spider1/24hrsupport.htm.
