My friend just had her computer reformatted and Windows XP reinstalled. Yes, I know it's a dinosaur, but she's adamant about not moving to a new OS. Now every time she tries to set up a new internet connection, she is getting a "not enough disk space" error. Also, she has a RAID controller with a yellow exclamation point in her Device Manager. Also, when she attempts to open a device's properties, no window opens. There is simply no reaction. I realize this isn't much information, but whatever else is needed to get to a solution simply ask and I will deliver.

Thank you in advance.

My System


Open My Computer, and right click the C: drive and choose Properties. What is the total drive size, the Used space and the Free Space. Post a screenshot if you can.
Go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager, right click the Yellow flag and Uninstall it. Now Right click Any device and Scan For Hardware Changes, does the yellow flag come back?
Also, go to Start/Run and type diskmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Disk Management window, in the lower pane, what does it show for the Disk that Windows is installed on? Post a Screenshot if you can.
