18.6 GB hard drive with about 7.7% free space (1,475 MB free) was about 75% fragmented. Analysts working on this laptop noticed poor response time even during simple operations (ex., when pressing a key). Killing extraneous garbage from drive and defragging it seemed to help (tremendously).

These files totaled 500 MB (524,435,525 bytes). Quite remarkable, considering that the PC used dial-up for connectivity to the internet.
