Today I fired up Photoshop, and it barfed up an error about insufficient scratch space and closed. “That’s odd,” I though, having had a couple gig free the other day. I checked, and was at about 400 MB of free space.
About two minutes later, I was reminded of two things:
- CCleaner is an absolute must-have for any Windows user.
- Having 2GB of RAM results in really, really big core dumps when you bluescreen.
CCleaner fixed the problem in literally seconds, and I’m back up and running with a few gig of free space. Although I think I’ll still get a new hard drive and plunk Ubuntu Studio onto it, too. With Sunbird. And some nice themes. And Beryl/Compiz. And maybe Crossover, although it looks like Office 2007 doesn’t work in it.
