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

Toshiba Satellite L750 series Laptop keeps telling me D Drive is running out of space


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)!

Need more disk space on c drive


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.

R 528 my laptop is problem by c drive in red line today my lape vista window and other drivers by correct with blue


Hi

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

start
computer/local disk (c) properties
write down what it says please for
capacity ???GB
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

many thanks

Have used toolbox 5.0 regularly to scan film negs without a problem until today. Suddenly I get the message "unable to scan. Make sure that there is enough space on the target disk". What does this mean?


Either your hard drive is full, or the program is trying to save to a different drive (CD, flash drive) which doesn't have room for files.

If you're saving as TIF files you may have filled a lot of hard drive space, as they are much bigger than JPG files.

Running out of space on drive C Get a new Drive?


You can use Norton Ghost to copy your current hard drive to the new one. And when you boot the new drive, the only difference you will see is more hard drive space.

As for interfacing, since you say the drive in there already is a 30 GB, it is most likely an IDE connection. This can be identified by a ribbon cable about two inches wide running to the drive.

Hard Drive


Hi,

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.

Good luck and kind regards.
