Disc Clean up from restore Points
Hi, I bought a Toshiba A200 Satellite laptop 2 months ago with Vista Business
pre-installed, 120GB Hard Drive. (I bought it here in Barcelona and
discovered after that I can't change the default language Grrr...but thats
another story)

My C Drive is almost full 1.5GB left from 55GB and I keep gettting warning
messages about low Disc Space, my E Drive (data) is sitting empty.
How do I set the computer to store things in the E Drive and NOT the C
Drive?. Im a newbie to all this so please be gentle!

Also I have been reading in other posts that the default level for auto
restore might be a little higher than required. How do I use the disk cleanup
to the most recent restore point to free up space? Bear inmind that
everything is in Spanish...

thanks!!!
