Getting more disk space on my Dell XPS?

My Dell XPS M1710 is only providing about 86 GB for my 100GB drive.   Is
there any way to get more drive space.  The pagefile.sys is 2 GB and
hibernation has been disabled.

By comparison, my Sony VAIO shows about 94 GB for total capacity on its 100
GB drive.

Re: Getting more disk space on my Dell XPS?

There is probably a partition on the drive that you can theoretically
delete (although there may be some functionality associated with it ....
things like the ability to restore Windows, and the ability to play CDs
and DVDs without booting Windows.  The former is important, the latter
is perhaps not).  You need to look at the partition layout of the drive.
  But, really, if 86GB isn't enough, then even 100GB probably would not
be for long.  You need to look at getting a 120GB or 160GB drive.
