ZIP up rarely used pics and folders? Burn stuff to some CD or DVDs.

Buy some blank DVDs and put your data on them, use a compress program like winrar or 7zip to reduce file size, Have you got lots of films and music on it? if so make sure your films are all AVI format and music are at a good birate compression this will allow heaps more singles/albums, reduce your drive space considerably.
