I have an IBM laptop and while using PSE 6.0 lately, I am getting warnings that my C-drive (IBM Preload) is nearing full capacity. It prevents me frop pp images in PSE 6.0. I wonder if I should store my photos on an external hard drive or similar device. I have seen pictures of some that hold the CF card and makes a copy of all images. Do people use these to store images instead of loading them and storing on the PC? I heard some will burn the stored images on to a DVD. Would this help me free up some space on my hard drive so I can continue pp in PSE 6.0? I have 3000+ images in "my pictures" now. Any insights would be most appreciated.
