I just got a Mini 9 with a 8gb SSd
and upgraded it to 2gb of RAM. As expected, my harddrive is already mostly full and I'm trying to free up as much space as possible (right now it has less than 1gb of free space) and would appreciate any suggestions.
1) I've already removed all the games and a few other applications I'm not likely to use. Is there anything I can safely delete? This is the first computer I've had that uses Windows, which is making it harder for me to figure out what I can get rid of.
2) I have a 16gb SDHC card for storage that I'd also like to run some applications off of (I don't mind a short delay). It's formatted as FAT32. I don't have any problem storing doccuments and files on it, however I've been unable to install any applications on it, they (Open Office, Adobe, etc) all default to installing onto the SSD
and I don't seem to be able to install them on the SDHC card. For Adobe it seemed to give me the choice to choose and install on another drive, but even when I chose the SDHC card to install on (D drive) it still installed onto the SSD
. Is there anyway around this? Again, my Windows illiteracy could also be contributing to this problem...
Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks very much.
