Re: Memory for Drive "C"
This may work for you. Try compressing your C: drive. This will create an alternate/ghost drive, usually H:drive. You may then have enough memory to run your job. Transfer the the compressed file in the new H:drive to C:drive and work with the app in there. I hope this helps you, if not , hit me back, we have other options.

Defragmenting your computer does not remove files. It simply "cleans up" your files by reorganizing file "fragments" made by your computer. You should be able to simply delete files without an issue by moving them to your trash, or if its a program by unistalling through "add/remove programs"
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.
Yes. Defragmenting simply takes the pieces of empty space on the drive and groups them together. When you delete data from a drive or it is deleted as part of a program's function (such as deleting files only needed during installation) it leaves a blank space, but files are lined up on the drive. So if the files are like so:
2GB File ' 3 GB File ' 5.5 GB Free Space ' 1.5 GB File ' 4 GB Free Space
Then defragmenting would try to rearrange the files like so:
Ok I assume you get a virtual memory is low balloon at the bottom of the screen? If so then this is due to insufficient RAM to run the amount of programs or resource hogging programs like the newer internet explorer can be. If not and you have a low disc space balloon next to the clock then what you can do is first do a disc clean up which is found in start all programs accessories system tools disc cleanup. It make take a long time if your hard drive is filled with a bunch of temp files as well as old files and Once it is up check everything and let it clean up all of the un-necessary things. This will take awhile as well. Once it is complete I would suggest you do a disk defragment as after deleting a lot of files it can cause things to get fragmented and slow your computer down. this can be done by going to start all programs accessories system tools and disk defragment. You can analyse the disk if you want to see how fragmented it is before defraging as it will tell you if it really needs to be defraged or not. And that is about it. If you need further assistance just comment to say if this helps.
If your disk space is low on the Hard Disk drive, delete or move some files off. You can replace the hard disk for 30-50 dollars with a larger one. If it is low on memory (RAM) you can add more up to the system limit from several sources. Thanks
If the hard drive is not faulty and the computer won't boot up, then remove the hard drive from your computer and connect it an USB hard drive adapter. Connect the adapter and hard drive to a working computer's USB port, this computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders and delete the photos or data files. When you restore the hard drive back into your computer and when it boots up, your should do a Disk Cleanup then a Defrag. Disk Cleanup will remove old temporary files, old compressed files etc and free up disk space. Defrag will make fragmented files contiguous so the files can be accessed more efficiently. If you have not run these programs before, it will take a log time to complete. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out once a month to maintain the hard disk.
Have you deleted the temporary files? Download CCleaner and delete the temp files.
Right click on the C:\ drive in My Computer, select Properties. That will show you the amount of disk used. If you have a very small disk then you might try "compressing the drive" If the disk is under 100GB, consider replacing it with a larger disk but it is a pain if you cannot get your data and programs off the old drive to install on the new drive.
to make it run faster, you have to uninstall some programs or delete some files like Music, Videos, Pictures, etc that are not very important. This will empty your hard disk and make it perform better. You can store your important files into an external hard drive or a reliable flash drive.
Also, you might need to upgrade your memory if you wish, but this will make your system faster as well.
You have done a great job already by cleaning and defragmenting your hard disk.
You'll need to remove some items from the drive in order to use it. If you can boot the computer reset the Virtual memory to 512 mb, you can access this under performance in the System settings under control panel. Empty the trash can and delete any cookies. After you do these things you should have enough HD space to at least move things around. Your best bet is to get a portable drive or burn to disk and .doc files or files you have created such as pictures or music that don't get used daily basis.This will let you delete them from your HD clearing more space. After doing all of these things you need to do a system Defrag. Once the Defrag is complete you should reset your virtual memory to allow Windows to control it. Make sure you empty your trash can regularly and save files on other devices instead of directly to your HD.
