Ok, Im making an assumption here that you are using a windows based operating system so..

10GB isnt a great deal, your operating system and subsequent patches or service packs could take several Gigabytes and your programs folder will take several more.

Add onto that any temp files, browsing history etc theres another chunk gone.

Then theres your profile folder which holds details about you on the computer and your My Documents folder this is going to take another slice of the pie.

Hope this helps.

WINDOWS WILL NOT RECOGNIZE MY 640 GB ONLY 600 GB


If you bought a 640 GB hard drive when the drive is formatted it will be slightly smaller then the size listed on the box.
This is caused by a difference between the size of a GB as defined by windows versus the maker of the drive. The drive manufacture assumes that 1 GB is 1000 MB, where as windows assumes it is 1024 MB.
If you carry these assumptions all the way down to the byte level you get:
640GB = 640000 MB = 6.4 * 10^8 KB = 6.4 * 10^11 bytes
this is the base storage size of the drive.
Then windows takes this number and does the same in reverse to get the number of GB is displays:
6.4 *10^11 bytes = 6.25 * 10^8 KB = 610351 MB = 596.1 GB
There is nothing wrong with the drive, it's just a different unit of measurement.

What is the maximum addressable disk size for a Dell Dimension 2350? I currently have a 120 gb drive partitioned in thirds (40 gb each) that I would like to change to 2 * 60 gb.


depending on what space you have free is your max, you can use any size you like but again it depends on what is your maximun disk size. hope this helps in some way.. for the size you have now 120 gb, u need at least 10 gigs for windows and programmes to install. so 110 is your max you can play with i think.

Coppying speed is slow


in vista you need to change the remote differential compression.  Can be found in control panel?programs?windows settings I believe.  Turn it off.  As far as XP, sounds like a problem with the hard drive or memory.  I know of this issue in vista, but never ran into it with XP.

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.
