Ok, guys, I spent all day backing stuff from the Acer's HDD onto this EHD, and used the recovery discs that I made (right after I got the Acer) to recover the system back to factory defaults and in the process, wiping drive C:\ so that now I have only 25.3 GB used space on the Acer's 500 GB HDD (this 25 GB is software installed at the factory - default software, I did not start installing stuff back onto the Acer yet, but closed it down for the night).
Now, hopefully during the month of June maybe I'd like to concentrate on getting the 8 GB of RAM sticks to upgrade the Acer (I checked into how much my mobo can take by using PC Wizard to scan its mobo) so I can allocate 4 GB of RAM to an XP VM in VMWare Player that I'd like to run some Adobe software (like Premiere and Photoshop) on for creating DVD videos for burning onto DVD for my local friends so I can start sharing my testimonies of my successes so they can pass these DVD's onto others that they know.

So, Inland, Jenny, what RAM (and price) would you recommend for my Acer?
