    Under the Windows (XP Pro) folder on my hard drive are a number of folders named

    They seem to be taking up a good bit of space. What are they and do I need them?

    Thank you for reminding me - I had zipped up 300Meg worth of these
    directories a few months back. Now safely deleted.

    I always create a sub-folder called "!! REMOVED {date} !!" and move the files to there.
    Eventually, when you go to that folder for whatever reason, it's the 1st folder listed and the
    date is a reminder to delete it if no problems arose from moving the files.
