singin' the blues.

The computer I am working on here has a grand total of 5% free space. I cannot delete temporary files, which it keeps telling me it wants to do, and I cannot defragment because it needs a minimum of 15% for that bit of hard-drive hygiene.

What happens to a computer so outrageously full?

I picture a firm final and fatal crash. Loss of all documents.

Sound about right?

I am having THE. WORST. LUCK. with computers this summer.

THE. WORST.

(Why is it that the blogger spell check doesn't recognise the word defragment? Just askin')

I suggest defragging with a margarita...or two.

ya know what...I hate computers. They think they're smarter than me. but it's hard to live life without one these days....

even below 15% you can force the defrag, theoretically. Though a computer not being able to manage low disk space is *not* a good computer. I say, give it a spanking.

hula...yes indeed. What a summer.

Beth, they aren't smater than us...it is so very obvious. I do miss one that functions properly though. Really miss it.

elPadawan, Check. Spank computer. I've done that before, I thought it was generally frowned on.

it is frowned on. Nevertheless, when no other solution is available...
