I'm new to this forum and as well to the mini. I'm not that good in computing, so please don't kill me if the following questions are very stupid
ops: As I'm from Germany and not a native English speaker there might (ok, there WILL ...) be some mistakes in my writtings; but I'm always ready to learn, so don't hesitate telling me.
I just received my lovely little Mini 9 (8GB SSD
, 1GB RAM, Win XP Pro) 2 days ago. It looks great and and caused some "ooh"s and "wow"s already
Right now im a little bit unhappy with windows. Trying to slim windows i was running the wise disk cleaner to get rid of un-/installer files, which saved me about 400MB. Good advice from this forum so far, but unfortunately Windows started to expand itself again downloading stuff for another 900MB. After that it deleted about 400MB again. The last 20min I was able to watch my free storage decreasing and increasing of several hundred MBs.
Is there a way to stop that up and down? Is it safe to disable the update function?
The next thing I wondered about is the amount of free storage:
shows up with a storage of 7.1GB (i was unlucky there
). Right now there are 6 files on the C-Drive: Windows (2.1GB) , Programms (1GB), Documents and Settings (150MB) and the DELL, mini and Intel files which content i moved to a SD card. And then there is the reserved recovery storage with about 350MB, which makes a total of approx. 3.6 GB, leaving 3.5GB free. But in the properties of the SSD
are only 2.4GB shown to be free. Where is the missing storage? Is there a way of recovering it?
