The C drive properties tells you how much space is on the hard drive, how much is used and how much is free (empty). Whatever is written to the hard drive stays there until erased.

RAM stands for Random Access Memory and is hardware separate from the hard drive. It's the "fast" memory used when actually doing something. Whatever is in that memory is lost when the computer is turned off.

Windows 98 uses about a half a gig (400 to 500 MB) of hard drive space.

According to your figures, Disk Cleanup would free up a little over a gig of space on the hard drive (by deleting temporary and other unneeded files). That's not an insignificant amount on an 8 gig drive.

Music, pictures and videos are three types of files that can use up quite a bit of space on the hard drive.
