    Since your hard drives are quite small, backup everything you need (eg to DVDr or external hard drive) and reformat it all! That is the best solution...

    get a bigger drive and elchepo eide controller of ebay. you could have 160gb of free space for less than £30. its not worthit with drives that small older 40gig drives can be had for less than £15 on ebay.if your not looking for a upgrade just do what sim say and backp and wipe the lot.

    I agree the easiest and most effective thing to do would be to buy a bigger hardrive there cheap enough from ebay.

    I find Space Monger to be an absolutely irreplaceable tool for clearing out hard drives, it gives you a visual representation of where all your space has gone, and allows you to delete files from within it, and zoom down to the individual folders.

    Get a copy of Drive Image or Norton Ghost. Backup an image of your system onto DVD or external drive (which everyone should have, can be indespesible). Get a new hard drive or two, install & resore the image of your system. Now you have all the same rubbish, just in a much bigger space

    I'm pretty sure the poster is based somewhere where english isn't his first language ( possibly not the second or third )

    we;d really like to help , but I'm certainly having a little bit of a hard time understanding quite what you want ?
