    PC Health files

    I am unfamiliar with this OS and on running Disk Cleanup I noticed that I had 2.27Mb in Temporary PC Health files.
    Q1. What is PC Health?
    Q2. Can I safely delete these temporary files?

    Cheers

    Rob

    Hi again Al,
    You always seem to be coming to the rescue.
    Thanks for the info. I read the pages and I was already aware of Disk Cleanups functions. It was The PC Health files that I had not come across before. I was wondering what the purpose of PC Health was.

    Cheers

    Rob

    Mebbe I had brain-freeze, Rob! I guess I saw what my eyes wanted to see - "disk cleanup" and "temporary files." It may very well be the System Restore function. Try reading this. I admit to having System Restore turned OFF, not only on my ME machine, but XP as well. I take-my-chances and rely completely on my own backup strategy and housekeeping system. Good luck.

    <Mebbe I had brain-freeze, Rob! > It happens to me all the time, Al. It's interesting that you have System Restore switched off because after installing ME, I seem to have lost over 200MB of HD space. I presume it is being reserved for System Restore.
    I may switch it off to free up more space on what is a relatively small system.
    Many thanks for your time and expertise.

    Cheers

    Rob

    If you choose not to turn off System Restore entirely, you can reduce the amount of drive capacity, i.e., set up fewer restore points.
    Open System properties in Control Panel.
    Click the Performance tab, and then click File System.
    On the Hard Disk tab, move the System Restore disk space use slider to change space for System Restore.
    Click Apply, and then OK

    Hi Dennis

    I've just done as you've suggested. It was set at the maximum value, but no longer.

    Cheers
