You are talking about the old memory allocation methods in the dos based 9x?

This I can help you with, just let me know more about the issues you are having and what you want to do.

You want to move some services and appz into extended and expanded memory?

I assume you are referring to permanently deleting files from your hard drive, and not placing them in the recycle bin. To do this you need to select the file you wish to delete, then press shift+del, and the file will be deleted - permanently. You can empty the recycle bin by right-clicking it and selecting Empty Recycle Bin. You can also decrease the amount of hard disk space allocated to the Recycle Bin by right-clicking it and selecting Properties, then clicking the Global tab and specifying how much space should be allocated.

Good luck

If you mean: freed your memory to make it available for other programs, because the Windows doesn't uses all of it: Then you will have to allocate EMS-memory or XMS-memory, this is something you can do by hand, i.e.: Open the file "C:\CONFIG.SYS" in notepad, and add the lines:
This could help, if this would describe your problem (you will need to reboot the PC)

If you are referring to hard drive space, every situation on clearing files is different. Here are a list of files you should be able to safely delete from your PC. Empty the Recycle Bin when done. Search for all files:
*.gid (programs will recreat these help files if needed again)

Clear all files form all your internet browsers caches. Each one is different so check their options.

Hope some of this helps.
