At least 10% of your drives should be free. You may just copy or cut your files from the D drive to a USB flash drive to relieve your D drive and make it work optimally. You may also opt to copy your files to a CD by dragging it to a blank CD.

I am usubg 845 gvrs motherboard now I want to installed extra internal harddisk what will be ideal harddisk and size


The size of the hard disk depends upon what type of programs you are running and the amount of data you need to store.
Programs that create large amount of data are audio and video files.
The tpye of hard drive depends on what type of disk controller you have, it could be IDE or SATA disk controller, you need to check your computer's hard disk controller.
The average hard disk capacity is 160 Gb to 180 Gb and goes up to 1 Tb, but the largest capacity drive your cmputer can support will depend upon the BIOS.

How back up your files (data) before doing system restore


<p>1. Use of pre-installed backup tools. Many computers have a backup software installed when you buy (including Time Machine backup and restore for Mac or Windows). These tools are designed to transfer files to various media they create on the computer hard drive or external hard drive, you can prevent a total loss of data is performed. When you open the utility, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the backup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Back up important files on a USB stick or Memory Stick. Insert the stick into a USB port on your computer. Drag the selected files to the disk icon on the desktop (Mac) or PC (Windows) will appear. Flash drives and memory sticks are very mobile and can be stored in small spaces such as basements. Although they generally do not have a capacity of more than a few gigabytes (GB), they are large enough to store your important files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Enter an external hard drive. These external hard drives usually have a very large capacity and can therefore keep most or all files on a disk. Connect the external hard drive via a USB port. You can drag and drop files on your hard disk or use it as a means of backup using a backup utility installed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Burn your important files on a CD-R or DVD-R. an entire hard disk backup can be many slices, so this option is ideal if you want large media files or documents for easy access later. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM and follow the instructions on the screen (for Windows and Mac) to back up and store files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Upload files for storage in the cloud. Services in the Internet cloud storage (like Mozy and drop-down box) are great ways to backup files to the internet access from any Internet enabled device. Important files with sensitive information may only be attached to a back-up cloud services such as Mozy. Clouds, Drop box is ideal for backing up photos, videos and other files less sensitive.<br />

Sandisk 16 GB USB Drive wont accept large files says disk is full


What is the USB drive formatted as? Look in My Computer then right click the USB drive, select Properties. See what it says under "File System". My guess is the drive is formatted as FAT32. Now FAT32 has a size limitation of 4GB for a single file, which would explain the error. To get over this you need to reformat the USB drive as NTFS. Then it will accept the 6.95GB file. You can format the drive by right clicking it again and selecting "Format" ... choose NTFS from the drop down menu. Be aware that any data already on the drive will be wiped by the format so be sure to back it up before formatting.

How do I re format my Western Digital 500GB My Book so it will accept files greater then 4GB?


The only requirement for file sizes that large is that you format the drive using NTFS. FAT or FAT32 will not support files that large, so make sure you format NTFS :)

Hope this helps!

How to adjust the page file size in Windows XP


The page file is an area of your hard drive that the system uses as "extra" RAM. Adjusting the page file size in Windows XP is easy -- just follow these steps:

Right click on My Computer (either from the Start menu or from the desktop) and choose Properties. Go to the Advanced tab and click the Settings button under Performance. In the Performance Options window, go to the Advanced tab and at the bottom, under the "Virtual memory" heading, click the button labeled Change.

The Virtual Memory window will open, showing current details about your page file. To adjust the page file size, click the radio button next to "Custom size" (if it's not already selected) and change the initial size and maximum size. (You can make these two the same number.) A good rule of thumb is to make the page file about one and a half times as large as the amount of RAM your system has. So if you have 1 GB of RAM, you could make your page file 1.5 GB. But this is just a recommendation; you can make the page file as large as you want (as long as you have the hard drive space for it).

If your hard drive is slow or you have a ridiculous amount of RAM, you can also try disabling the page file to speed up your system. To turn off the page file, select "No paging file." If your computer becomes unstable or does not run as well as you expected it to, you can always go back in and turn it back on.

Once you've made the changes to your page file that you wanted to make, click the Set button, click OK to close the current window, and then in the Performance Options window click Apply. (You may have to reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.)

Drive C, full


Save all your files, your disk is risking to collapse at any time.
You cannot efficently run Vista on a 10 GB hard disk.
Minim efficient size it will be 40 GB or so.

Delete as many useless files as you can, use the hard drive cleaning tool that you find under all programs/accessories/system tools.

To save your file you can use the backup option in control panel, and save all files to an external USB stick or external hard drive or, do not use CD RW because the disk is full and there will be no space for disk image on hard drive.

If you want to keep using Vista I suggest replacing the hard drive for a bigger one.

My ACER Aspire 9301AWSMi has run out of space on its hard disk. When I checked, the ACER C drive is full, but the ACER D drive ir empty with 33 gb of free space but I don't know how to access it, as I...


you just right click on the d drive and select explore or double click it, there won't be anything in the drive apart from maybe a system back up file.

when in there make a new folder called programme files

If you have a lot of programmes installed on your c drive, then uninsatl them and reinstall again, but when the option comes up to install in a specific folder choose 'D' drive then choose programme files folder, the programme will then be installed there, but will still put an icon on your desktop as normal.

you can also transfer any video or music to the d drive, just make a folder in the d drive called music and video, select your music you wish to move select 'Cut' then open the folder on the 'D' drive and select paste.

Also run this free programme to clear your system up
