Running Out Of Space on C Drive.

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 message is for wayneard, cause you requested some clarification. I put all of my documents and pics, music and videos on my d drive. whenever i install some software or something and i have the option to choose which drive i want to install it on i pick the D drive. i have a friend that i work with and he's got the same exact issue with his computer.

    How big are the drives?



    Do you only keep data files, i.e. documents, pics, music, on your D: drive, or have you installed programs on it too?

Here's a link to CNET's free (trial) partition manager. CNET is pretty reputable. Just be careful. I have never tried this.

Hi

No problem my friend...try and torrent or download a partition manager (ie a program) to increase the size of your C drive (ie resizing)....It is possible and the program does exist...

Good Luck

Adding more hard space


If you are running out of hard disk space you need to do disk maintenance to recover lost disk space.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559146-hard_disk_maintenance

If you still need more disk space you can add another hard disk to your computer as a slave hard drive. You can move your data to this new hard drive and free up disk space on your C Drive.

Why my skype install not contuniuse in my computer


Easy, maybe your computer does not have the needed RAM (read and write memory). Your harddrive may not be big enough. Just because a problem loads doesn't mean it will run. Verify the RAM & hard drive space required (you may have 1 Meg Ram but it could need 2 Meg Ram, You may have 20Gig Memory Hard-drive but it could use 25G hard drive space. Some newest programs need higher/bigger Ram or hard drives.

to add memory, for increased virtual memory it is to delete msic data from the hard drive, if it is your hard drive low on space you should purchase another hard drive and make the new hard drive as the slave to store more, on it. if not have a bigger hard drive installed, obtain a USB external hard drive. to add increased more memory you have to open the pc, add another sdram/dimm/ddr memory card.

Hard disk drive D reads 9.16 used GB space....the free disk reads 1.24 space. That is only 1/4 of the whole pie shown. I was told that I still have a lot of space...how is that?


Hello your D: drive is most likely a Windows Operating system backup drive only to use when your computer crashes so you do not use Drive D: for anything on your system Drive C: however is your main system drive where all of your programs are kept you should have a 320GB hard drive if im not mistaken but the drive is Portioned which means basicly windows takes a piece of the 320 GB drive and sets it up as another Drive which is your Drive D and all the rest is on your Drive C so if you check the settings on your drive C you should have plenty of space available this is why you have a lot of space left im assuming if your C drive isn't full

Low disk space on C drive while lots of disk space on the d drive


Does the D: drive have an Operating System on it?
Can you compress the info on your C: Drive? That would in effect give you more room. Odds are that your D: Drive only has the "Restore" files on it and is best not messed with.

I have a Maxtor 6Y120Lo internal hard drive which is my "C" drive it is nearly full Can I add another hard drive and double my "C" drive


You can add another hard drive, but it won't double your C drive; it will just show up as another hard drive.

However, using a program like Acronis, you can hook up the 2nd hard drive, make an exact image of your c drive on the new drive, then connect the new drive in the old drive's place and there you have added more space on your c drive as it will automatically become the c drive.

Hard drive keeps losing space lol


Are you surfing the internet a lot?  You may be getting a lot of temporary files.  Here is something to try.  In internet explorer go to tools / internet options / delete cookies, delete files (all offline contect) and clear history.  This should help some.  You are always going to go down in space.  Windows updates automatically on a regular basis.  This will cause a decrease in available hard drive space.
