Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
HELP! My computer keeps telling me that I have "low disk space" on my c: drive no matter what I do... I recently deleted all kinds of programs, temp files, cookies etc...but gained little to no space back. My C: says it has less than 1% free space BUT my D: has 98% free space.... What do I do????? I have the same problem. I have a Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop, and it keeps popping up the message "low disk space" and no matter what I do to clean up my C: drive, it makes no difference whatsoever. It recently told me I had only 4 MB of free space and not enough room on it to install updates. My D: drive is virtually empty. Please help!

1. right click on my computer->manage

Hello, from my understanding, to add the free space from this D partition to your C partition, there are two ways for your right now:
1). Open Disk Management, delete or shrink the partition with free space and add the free space to your C partition there.
2). But, if the disk management tool does not change anything there, you also can use a partition resizing tool to extend this partition.
Simply follow this video tutorial to know more detailed steps here:
No matter what your conditions are, just save all partition data on other places in case of data loss.

OK! According to your description, you can directly try to move the free space of your D partition to your C partition.
What version of windows do you use right now? If it is Windows 7, 8 or higher version, you can open Disk Management, delete or shrink D partition and extend this C partition there. Of course, if it is troublesome to you, you also can apply some partition resizing tool to extend your C partition with the free space of your D partition.
But, if you are using Windows XP, the above mentioned partition resizing tools, like GParted, Magic Partition Resizer Free and EaseUS Partition Master, etc, also can be the best ways to go on.
Note: In case of data loss, copy all important partition data to another drive or location in advance.
