hard drive.jpg



I'm looking for some advice.  As you can see above, my hard drive has very quickly run out of space, but I don't know why.  I cannot figure out is using 155 GB of "Other" space, but it is driving me crazy.  I'm in the last 6 months of my masters degree, with 2 or 3 projects left.  At this rate I only have enough space to work on one project at a time, and it gets used up pretty quickly.  On a normal basis I'm using programs like Revit, AutoCAD, PS, AI, and InD.  I do have a portable hard drive but it's a pain to bring it around and work off of it all the time.


I've got some time this weekend before the next project begins.  I'm wondering if I should back up everything and completely wipe my computer and reinstall about 30 programs plus data, OR is there some risk involved in this and I should wait until I'm done school in the summer?


Please & thanks for the advice!
