I have two drives on my desktop, A C drive and a D drive. The D drive Is a lot bigger than my C and that is where I usually try and keep most of my files. I can move some things over to the D drive just fine but some things I cant. I have about 1 gig of space left on the c drive. I dont understand why this computer was designed like this. i used c cleaner already and it helped some but not a lot. what to do?

This occurs when the drive is near full...BUT.. if you clear out the recycle bin it may stop the alerts since the recycle bin uses space on the drive to save all the deleted files. Also, so if defragmentation will free up some space. Lastly, go through the file tree and see if there isn't stuff on the drive you don't need or can copy off onto Flash Drives or burn to DVD/CD. Or get a bigger hard drive and start filling it up all over again (that's the most fun)!
You can do one of three things. You can compress your entire drive which will give you some more room. You can remove programs that you do not use or you can replace your drive with a bigger one. Four actually....you can run disk clean up and get back a portion of your drive as well.
windows - start - control panel - administration - computer administration - hard drive administration - resize your C drive to bigger capacity, but first resize D drive to smaller capacity to free a space for C drive enlarge, then apply setting, reboot, my computer drive C right click - propertis- service - defragmentation and same operation and chek it for errors
I think it could be because the hard drive is almost full and not enough free working space on it
because windows needs to have a few GB,s free to use as working space without it it cannot run correctly
could you please go to
computer/local disk (c) properties
write down what it says please for
used Space ???GB
free Space ???GB
Can you also check to see if you are storing lots of video,s or hundred's of pictures
on the c drive either in your documents or desktop maybe
or have you done lots of backups which could be taking up your space
please check this out for us and come back to us also telling us what operating system you
are running im guessing it could be vista
For some reason, I see a lot of the external USB hard drives having issues. Though I have an IDE to USB external enclosure as well as a 2.5 USB enclosure, I find it more assuring to use a secondary HD installed internally to the PC.
Alternately (and probably more to your requirement), if you intend to add more hard disk space but retain your original configuration, files and data (or simply same everything except bigger) then perhaps what you can do is clone your present HD to a bigger HD and swap when done. There are many programs available for this purpose. An example is Acronis True Image. Alternately, you can do a Google for hard drive cloning software.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
