Post Need Help Now!!!!!!! Using up a lot free disk space watching t.v. and movies online


I just bought a new computer "Emachines" with a 300gig hard drive. I've been watching a lot of T.V. shows and movies online. I watch most at "Hulu" because the picture quality is superb. I've noticed that even though I'm not downloading the shows and movies I watch, I've gone from 28 gig's used space to over 50 gig's used space. I'm afraid at this rate I'll have little to no free space left on my computer in no time. How can I get that space back on my computer? Is there anything I can do about it? Please help me out!!!!


Regards,

Charles Gallagher

Did the computer come with Linux? Regardless, I don't think its a Linux issue---you simply need to find the files and delete them.

If you're watching in your browser, it's probably loading up the cache. Just clear it out in the settings somewhere. But 28 gigs to 50 gigs with a 300GB drive is nothing, hardly an emergency requiring help "NOW!!!"
