Simply buying an external hard drive would be the easiest option if you don't want to have to open your computer and install another hard disk.

^^ This is a very good external drive, and will add another 1000GB of storage space to your computer.

You can also remove old System Restore points to save on space as this often takes A LOT of room unless configured otherwise. To remove old system restore points right click on your local disk and go to properties, then disk cleanup.. once it's done working out what you can remove there is a tab for "more options". From that tab, there is an option to delete all but most recent restore point and this can save you no end of space.

System restore can take up to 100% of your disk space unless configured otherwise. I believe by default this should be at 10%, but that's not always the case. I've removed 40GB of system restore points before.

If you want to install a new drive into your computer it's pretty simple as long as you have the right cables from your power supply.

You simply buy an internal drive, screw it in place (probably next to your current hard drive), and then plug it in.

If you have an old computer it's probably using IDE which is a type of hard drive that uses ribbon cables (like floppy drives so). IDE drives also take 4-pin molex power connections.

Newer computers will be able to take SATA drives, which uses a small (and normally red or black) cable for data, and a small cable for power.

What make and model computer are you using? I'll be able to tell you what you're compatible with and then how to install it..
