Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

Desperate for C:drive space!!

Ok, so I have tried several solutions to correct my "low disc space" messages, to no avail. Really, I can't delete any more programs in my computer...I've already deleted things I NEEDED hoping to create disc space! I'm regretting buying an Acer at the moment, but can't afford to replace the POS!! I've only had it a year!! I've tried "resizing"...but it didn't even give me an option to expand my volume, only to SHRINK it! I have tried setting it to the D:drive as someone else suggested, but that did nothing either. I am at a loss, and am desperate for advice!! I don't know what else to do...although sometimes I'd just like to throw the darn computer out the window!!

    Question. Is it possible to move my iTunes to my D: drive without hurting anything.
    I am completely computer illiterate, and don't even know what that D: drive is doing...there's NOTHING on it. What's it's purpose? Anyways, iTunes is probably the issue on my C: drive, but I can't delete it, I need it.

Unfortunatly u cant expand a hard drives allocated space past its original limitations. your only options are to buy a new 2.5'' hard drive, a external hard drive or a cheap secure digital card. u can pick sd card up for around £4 a 1gb.
look in second hand electrical retailers for cheap options.

hope that helps.

How to Prevent "Low Disk Space" Error Messages?


David, this message comes when the drive is too full.

Something needs to be deleted or you may consider a larger hard drive.
Low disk space causes the computer to run really slow, with reference to disk read/write events. Move quickly.

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

How to resolve low c drive space


Try restarting your computer. If you don't restart every so often, the cache memory in your computer, which holds temporary files, can run out of space. You can also go into your system tools under accessories in the start menu and use the disk cleanup to get rid of unnecessary and temporary files, or defragment your drive to rearrange files so the computer maximizes available space.

Low disk space and I did clear files.


Low disc space really means nothing, but low disc space.

I understand you have cleared your files, but your going to have to remove more....if you have excessive music, pictures, and videos...try backing them up to a DVD or flash drive, then deleting them off of the computer.

If you cannot seem to clear anymore space the next thing to do would be purchasing an external hard drive. This way you can save files on that drive while not adding anymore to the current drive. You can view some external hard drives here

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.

best regards,

Philip
