    Can I play Sims 3 AND Sims 4 on one laptop?

    So I am a HUGE sims fan. I LOVE the Sims 3, and play it way more than Sims 4. However, with the new Cats and Dogs expansion coming to Sims 4, I would like to be able to reinstall Sims 4 and play it, but still be able to just play Sims 3 whenever I want. My laptop runs Sims 3 at the moment with...

    Please help converting unallocated disk space into Recovery Partition

    Hi everyone, Yesterday, I tried to be a lab rat and bit the M$FT deal to upgrade my Dell XPS 13 2015 from Windows 8.1 Home to Windows 10 Home. I would say I was extremely disappointed. But more problematic was, as I tried to factory reset it to Windows 8.1 using Dell's factory image, when the...

    Laptop for University. ($400 budget.)

    I have been trying to acquire a laptop for my classes, which are approaching soon. I don't really know too much about laptop platforms, honestly. I'd like a run down of some of the basic knowledge and buying tips for laptops. (Are there brands to watch out for, or avoid?) So! My primary...

    Getting rid of "invisible" fraps files that take up disk space

    Before fraps, I had 150.8 GB of free space. Ever since I had fraps, whenever I delete the videos (plus empying out the recycling bin) and defragment my hard drive, I end up with 1-2 GB less space than when I had fraps but did not use it yet (and each day, when I record and delete the files and...

    Where did all the disk space go?

The recovery partition of the HDD is some 9GB and presumably Windows and components consume the same amount of disk space. I...
