I'm just getting the message...'compcln.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Oh - and Newbie means just that...............
Hello Hanntom, and welcome to Vista Forums.
Do you have the Vista SP2 installed, and ran the command in a elevated command prompt (link at step 1)?
Hope this helps,
I lost 1GB after this - does that make any sense?
When I entered Y it began to work and I did not have to press enter. I never got the message that it was completed though, the command prompt window just closed. I tried to run it again to make sure it completed but as soon as I typed in Y the command prompt box closes, no time to hit enter.
Hello Moon unit,
That sounds about right. I would not worry about it.
Another usefull guide thanks Brink
I need those extra GB's. Using a 120 GB SSD wich fast can go out of space
This was with a clean install. I only have SP1 "build" in disc so I install SP2 after and clean it up. But also I must still use RTM becouse SP2 final is not available in my language. Dosn't matter, this works fine and I have used it for long time now. But I need a clean install today
I'm going to do the clean-up.
attached I have pics of my current allocation.
I also made an image using acronis.
btw, since I updated to SP2, my system restore does not auto create upon boot up or at 00:00
Have you made any system changes or installed any programs or drivers since installing SP2? It will not auto create a restore point unless it detects a change in the system at that scheduled time.
here is the difference.
capture5=after clean up
was the difference 720MB?
Most people have been seeing around a 1GB gain, so that is about right.
