    Re. the two partitions - when I go into This PC it shows only Drive C at 95GB and no other drives unless I put in a flash drive in usb port and that then shows as a drive.
    If picture is a problem, try with text.

    Open command prompt or powershell and type
    dir C:\

    if files in question don't show up, type

    dir C:\ /ah

    mark some files with cursor and press Control+ V here in answer.

    Do you see those files in File explorer (if select show hidden files). Select them (~00 files) and try to delete them.
    don't delete other files

    Could be from various reasons - i.e. compressing some very large files.. or because of malware..

    open command prompt and type
    cd C:\
    del ~00??

    Thanks but do not understand. Went into search - file explorer and only showed last 14 files but at top was just one called 00d and this was for that July date when I went into properties and was 200mb. Could not see any more.

    Other files are probably hidden. That's not unusual.

    Command prompt is really simple. You type one command after another. You could run script, but I think some commends (just to clear some disk space) would be fine.

    In that black window type (or even better copy) commands from the post above. Line by line:
    first: cd C:\
    then: del ~00??

    if files won't be deleted, we'll change some attributes of that files.

    first command was fine

    second should be without then:. Just

    del ~00??
    del means delete ...
    ~00?? means all files with ~00 and any two other characters

    moggie, as I am an elderly person I know what you mean.

    See if this works for you. I probably I canít explain it in exact detail but I hope you can get through this.
    Make sure you have your cursor positioned where you want to have your picture placed in your post

    Left click on the insert image icon as shown in post #14
    An insert image dialog box will show up
    Left click on browse.
    Find the image you wish to post that is in your pictures folder.
    Left click the picture: you will see the title of your picture appear in the file name section
    Left click on Open
    Left click on upload files thatís in the Insert image section you saw above
    The image will be positioned in your post

    Another thing you can do is type the partitions as presented in Disk Management in case placing your image in your post doesnít work out.

    Here is a disk management on a computer I just picked up

    Here are the typed information for each one of those partitions
    Disk 0 partition 1 Healthy (Recovery Partition) 400 MB 400 MB 100%
    Disk 0 partition 2 Healthy (EFI System Partition) 300 MB 300 MB 100%
    Disk 0 partition 5 Healthy (Recovery Partition) 450 MB 450 MB 100%
    Disk 0 partition 6 Healthy (Recovery Partition) 15.74 GB 15.74 GB 100%
    Gateway C Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition) 448.77 GB 394.71 GB 88%

    You can copy and paste that typed information into your post and edit appropriate sections
