It would be fine if you can run a scandisk (chkdsk in XP) before.
Right click the icon of the disk, choose Properties and go to Tools.
Then choose the Scandisk with all options. Boot.  ;)

Don't know if this is what you're referring to:


If it is, have some patience. It sometimes can take quite a while to compact the files.  ;D

You could always try using CCleaner instead.  :)

i used to run  Disc Clean up every week at least and it would take a max of 5 mins, now after 45 mins it wont budge from the 2 segment section. you can hear it compressing the files but it wont go any further. may have to download Ccleaner as suggested .many thanks for all your help and suggestions,cheers.
