I have a small hard disk (6GB), and it used to have 490MB free, but after I tried Gear 7.0, and found out that my CD burner doesn't work, it only has 190MB free. I deleted the project, and uninstalled Gear, but I can't figure out how to get back that 300MB. How do I find whatever Gear put on my disk and remove it? I'd hate to have to reinstall Windows, because I have dial-up and it takes 2 days to download all those updates.

gayurkon,

Did you go through Window's Add/Remove Program menu? That program will indicate the amount of space freed with the removal of GEAR. Look for the folder C:\Program Files\GEAR Softeware and the "My GEAR Projects" folder under the "My Documents" directory. Additional, to ensure the removal of GEAR's driver, you can run the following:
ftp://downloads.gearsoftware.com/updates/windows/drivers/Driver_Remover.exe

I did Add/Remove Programs, I deleted the folders you named, I used the Windows Search program to delete all files with "gear" in their titles, I ran the driver removal program you suggested, and I'm still short more than 200MB of disk space. Are there any temporary files which get created durning the burning process?

gayurkon,

All temporary files would be stored in the "My GEAR Projects" directory.
