Use third party software to move free space from your D drive to C drive. Windows built-in disk management tool can only shrink D drive, but cannot add the unllocated space to C drive.

1) Delete any programs/applications that you do not use.
DO NOT mess with Windows files!

2) Copy off any documents you have created, or downloaded to make more room.

3) Use a registry cleaner. Everytime you go to a website you pick up cookies.
Harmless, but they take up room.
(When you go back to the website they will be picked up again, anyway)

When you delete programs/applications there are 'tidbits' left behind.
Fragmented files. These also take up needless room.

I use CCleaner. Reasoning?
It's a program that is FREE, and works as well, if not better, than paid for registry cleaners.

Information on Wikipedia,

Home page,

Click on Download in the green rectangle with the white down arrow.
Go to the left column under the Ccleaner Free heading, then click on

Go to the far right, and click on the blue - Download Latest Version (3.42MB)
A small window will come up on the right.

Click on Save File.
Another small window will come up on the left.
In the heading, the wording tells you where the file will download to.
BEFORE you click on OK;

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.
Write it down.

[ For Vista and Win7 it will be Desktop, Documents, and Downloads ]

Desktop: The file will be on your Desktop screen.

My Documents: Click on Start, then My Documents.
[Vista and Win7: Click on the Windows logo button, then Documents ]

Downloads: Click on Start, then My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

[ Vista and Win7: Click on the Windows logo button, then Documents.
DOUBLE-click on Downloads ]

When you see the file DOUBLE-click on it. Follow the easy instructions.

If you wish basic guidance in using Ccleaner, post back in a Comment.

Why does my laptop show low disc space?


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

Low disc space cant upload pictures or anything i delted lots of files but still low disc space .zero space please i need help asap.

Just moving things to the trash or deleted files does not clear them from the disk drive.
Try empty trash or remove deleted files.

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

Very low disc space

In order for your laptop to properly operate you should keep at least 10% of your hard disk drive free, as this space is needed for your computer to properly operate. Move some of your current files to the external hard drive and remove them from the mail drive, then defraf drive and you should have smooth sailing.
