I think you mean your main hard drive, how big is the drive? What operating system are you running? Have you ran disk clean-up and checked for possible issues like viruses?

Yea, start up disk usually refers to removable media, that has a program that will start a computer. (floppy, or CD)
Although, technically it has a start up program, so it could be called a start up disk, but no.
As well as Main Disk, they are also referred to as "System Disk".
Companies with large networks, sometimes call it the "Local Disk", as they usually have dozens of mapped drives on servers.
When I worked for GE, my computer had dozens of mapped drives located all over the US, as well as on our own server.
As for the accusal name, you can name it anything you want, even "Start UP Disk"

You can do a disk cleanup using Windows' (under system tools). It will trash unneeded temp and unneeded install files.Conservatives: "If the facts disagree with our opinion, ignore the facts -- or at least misrepresent them."

All the files with $ at the beginning, can be deleted.
They are just for restoring to a previous service pack.
I've never needed them.Hard Sayin Not Knowin
