My XP Professional is suddenly causing me great problems. The problem is
that I have a very hidden file named CSC, it can only be seen in 'System
Information', which seems to hold the files that have been synchronised
'offline files'. I have disabled synchronising of offline files but the Csc
file is using over 30 G of my hard disk and I cannot find out how to get rid
of the file.

Does anyone know the correct procedure for freeing up my hard disk.

C:\WINDOWS\CSC is a hidden folder. CSC, Client Side Cache.

Start | Run | Paste this in the box:

C:\WINDOWS\CSC

Hit ENTER

Run Disk Cleanup, files should be listed there.
Start | Run | Type: cleanmgr | OK |
