I have one physical hard drive which came delivered with my Dell computer. The D drive is 10 GB and I would like to double that.

I have to keep shutting the...

Vista Home Premium 64-bit I have run sfc /scannow a number of times, and it always reports that there were corrupted files, but that it was unable to fix everything and points me to CBS.log for details. The problem with CBS.log is that it is HUGE, and I'm not sure what I should be looking for. I finally figured out how to delete CBS.log just prior to running sfc, and have a CBS.log that...
