    Thanks for the replies. We are going to try to make do with it until we can find another decent desktop someplace. Just going to keep the amount of programs to a minimum and keep the data on jump drive and CDs. We can make do with Office and Works for now.

    I work for a non-profit and we try to save money anywhere we possibly can. We have a laptop, about 3 years old and we don't want to buy another one at the moment. It has a very small harddrive, 6 GIG, but for our application we don't need a huge one. The drive is partitioned with one of them only holding system files. But there is about a GIG left over on the partition. Will it cause any problems for me to use the remainder of this partition for program or data files? Oh, I haven't tried to write any data to the partition yet. Am I wrong to assume I can even do this? Oh, it's WinME. (yeah I know ) Thanks!

    PS..... Does anyone know of organizations who donate computers to non-profits??????????
    No it wont hurt it. The drive is formatted as fat32, same as the WinME partition ?

    I donate to non-profit organizations (with proof that it is a non-profit .org), but i don't have any laptops..

    Well i do, but none i am looking to give away at the moment.
    The only thing i could donate right now is parts, and i could donate a copy of Windows 2000 Pro retail, in a month or two..
    Right now all i have is, Visual Studio .NET 2003 Enterprise..

    I think you will be ok but it depends on the size of the new stuff. you only have a gig left . You may have to format the partition as well. I would suggest looking into getting a bigger drive. Since you are looking for more sapce it's safe to assume you can justify the bigger drive. It's a better solution.
