SYSTEM running out of memory

I ran out of space in SYSTEM while installing games. Is there a way to make SYSTEM bigger?

Why do you install games to SYSTEM and not to WORK?

You change partition size only if you backup all files of the partitions to change, then change the partitions, format them and restore the files from backup. There is no tool to change partition size in-place.

Sorry, I should have been clearer. I installed the games in SYSTEM/GAMES/ under alphabetical order, as I believe is the default with ClassicWB. Should I be putting them somewhere else?

Would on the desktop in alphabetical order work?

Just aother quick question. You just delete stuff to uninstall in Workbech right? You can move or delete files and folders from where they were initially installed or unzipped and they will still work as long as the launch path is correct right?

Sorry, I don't know much about computers.

Edit - I assumed GAMES was in SYSTEM, it's actually on the destop. But the error message I got while unzipping into a subfolder of GAMES, was related to SYSTEM running out of space.

Edit2 - This error occurred at the end of unzipping about 8 games into WORKBENCH/GAMES/T.

But your extracting to the system partition, which is obviously to small.
Whats the size of your HDD?, what paprtitions do you currently have?

If Games is on the Workbench screen, then Im guessing its a folder from the System partition being told to be left out on the Workbench screen.
In this case as thomas said, you would need to install it to another drive / partition.

Games is in the system partition by default but this is not practical for normal use therefore you are better off moving the games drawer to another partition and changing the assign. There is a video tutorial of how to do this on the Classic Workbench site.

All the best,

Steve.
