C: Drive space issue

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!

    I tried doing the first option...but when I right clicked on the C volume it only gave me an option to SHRINK volume, which I clearly do not need to do do...it's small enough as it is!!



    I did option two, and I don't really know what benefit it did...I'm technologically illiterate...but it freed up 1.20 GB from my C Drive, which is better than the 4 MB it previously had, so thanks!

In your case, you can simply resize the laptop partition space and add more free space to your C partition.
Firstly, back up all important partition data well in case of any data loss problems.
Secondly, find partition resizing software online and follow the software guidance to extend your C partition step by step:

Thirdly, check whether this low disk space problem is resolved successfully.
In the future, regularly delete useless partition data and manage all your partition space well.

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:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jCeT7CbsKk
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.

How to cope with Laptop C partition low disk space error problem


Hi Belinda
Basically it is a good idea to use the "C" drive for the Operating System (Windows) and minimal 3rd party software.
Move all Movies, Music & Photo's to another drive. The "D" drive.
This can be internal or external depending on the computer.
An external 1 to 4 Terrabyte drive on the USB port is really useful actually... it is really mandatory these days to perform backups & keep the big files on. Like Movies & Music & Photos.
To give you long lasting capabilities into the future I would suggest something like this Dock Drive
http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/NewerTech/Voyager/Hard_Drive_Dock
You get to choose which drive to plug in and they can be stored securely (in tinfoil antistatic) when not in use.
The dock will allow you to keep a bootable emergency drive on one drive and a backup of all your movies on another and even a copy of all your music on another. This is my preferred method as it's future proof. if your computer gets broken or stolen then you still have a copy of everything. I prefer to use the 3.5 inch (larger) drive as they have faster access & backup capability. The 2.5" drives are great for portability & run on 5volts only so are not as fast. The dock can take either.
Hope this Helps

Solution of low disk space


HARD DISK MAINTENANCE TO KEEP COMPUTER RUNNING EFFICIENTLY.

Hard disk maintenance should be carried once a month to make your computer run efficiently.
This removes redundant and temporary files, recovers disk space and speed up hard disk access.
Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too.
Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter - click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse - then click Defragment.
When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive.
Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.

You need to delete items to free up space. Not much else, but maybe run a defrag and disk cleanup.

Why does my laptop show low disc space?


Hello

The low disc space message refers to the amount of free disc space on your c drive. The c drive is the drive on which your windows is installed, thus yu need to delete some games or not neccesary files to free up some space on your drive. Hope this can help you.

Kind regards

LAPTOP TELL ME i HAVE LOW DISK SPACE


This means your Harddrive(HDD) is nearly full with files and there is no more room to save/work on the harddrive.
You will have to delete some saved files or to uninstall some programs that you are not using anymore, this will create some free space on your HDD. Also do a right click on the Recycle bin/Empty recycle bin and it wil clear some space... If you need more help, let me know, I am happy to help you...

C: Drive space issue


Hi Ginnydoll,

You need to used Hard Drive Partition which you can resize your available space by increasing drive C: capacity and decreasing available space in your drive d: capacity without deleting any files on it. And this is not a harmful to your hard drive all your important files are intact in each destination.

If my solutions sounds great please email me for further assistance. diazphi@gmail.com. because it is really hard to demonstrate on this page because there is no features to attached pictures for visual instructions.
