Can you please try uploading the image using the "upload a file" button underneath the text editor? I had a look at the image link and it-redirects to an HTML file which is causing problems.

That's not a lot of free space at all! :eek:

First, I'd run "Disk Cleanup" - a Windows tool that will try and look for places to delete old files and get you some free space again.

You could also go to Control Panel > System and Security > Backup and Restore

Then select Change Settings > View Backups

Now you'll see all the backups you have and you can delete the old ones.

Have you checked to see that it is indeed the Backups folder taking up most of that space?

Maybe i am confused.
I never backup anything like photos on the computer.
the backups i am looking for are what the system automatically backs up. Image?
I did not find your "view backups"
thanks
PS looks like nobody else is interested!

If you click "manage space" (from the 2nd screenshot), do you see the "view backups" link then?

No i dont see that, maybe that is ONLY when the user backs things up. i only back up to a separate disc.
