Disable System Restore or just all but the most recent points in Disk Cleanup. Also use CCleaner to clean up temporary and unnecessary files left behind. Also manually uninstall programs that you rarely use to gain disk space. You can also send some files such as MP3s, Pictures, and documents to another storage media (preferably an external hard drive or flash drive).

Thanks for your help.I have tried that,but did not gain any real amount of disk space.I beleave in my orginal post I said I ran a system restore. what really ran was a XP non-destructive system recovery.I suspect the old data is still on the disk and I just do not know how to remove it. Thanks and take care.
