have you tryed running disk cleanup?
Right click the drive affected.
Left Click Properties.
Left Click Disk Cleanup.

It will then scan your drive and identify any items which can be cleaned up automatically, failing that just delet the temp files yourself.

Hi experts, my computer indicates there's only 1,14 gb space left on my usb stick but really there's only 8 items on it that don't even add up to 1 gb all together. I want to put a movie on it, (there...


Most movies are about 4.5GB to 8GB, this is probably why your not able to put a movie on it. Secondly a lot of flash drives say its 4GB but really its 3.5-4GB. There must be something your overlooking as file size for ti to take up that much space. go to the properties of each file and look at the folder size, might find something you missed that's taking up more space.

Previously I posted that the notebook is almost out of memory. The alert actually says "almost out of disk space". What is the best solution?


Move Pictures, Music, Movies to an external USB hard drive or burn to DVD. Uninstall unused programs and make sure your recycle bin is empty.

I,downloaded films got to the last stages of burning on 2 disc and it says ive got enough for temp files but the recording proc will need more


Hi,

You need to clear space on the hard drive as your burning software is unable to allocate the space needed to create a the temporary files.

Go through your hard drives and delete all the movies and stuff that you don't need or have backed up to a DVD or external hard drive.

Once you have cleared enough space your DVD software should be able to create the temp files for burning.



Regards.

I've got a Compaq Presario PC with a 40 G hard drive. The drive is at 99% full. How can I move some files to a new laptop I have with a 320 Gig hard drive? Joe C.


Any images, pictures, movies, or other personal files can be burned to a CD or DVD which can then be transferred to your new laptop.  Upon successful transfer, you may then safely delete the files from the full hard drive on your Presario.  Since your hard drive is so full, you may need to move files in small pieces since space is required to "burn" data to CD's or DVD's.  You can perform a "Disk Cleanup" which will delete files in Recycle Bin and Temporary Internet files.  To do this, Right-click on the Hard Drive, Click on Properties and click on the Disk Cleanup button.

A window appears saying "unable to scan. Be sure there is enough space in the destination disk."


Your hard drive may be getting full...
Or the account (user name) you are using on the computer does not have enough "rights" to create the output file.
Assuming it is Drive C:

Open [My Computer]
Right-click Drive C: (one time)
and select "Properties"
In the [General] tab, locate and click on [Disk Cleanup]
The system will harmlessly "scan" your hard drive to try to free up space. It is not deleting or compressing anything.
When the scan is complete, a list will appear, place a check on:
Tempoary files, Temporary Internet Files,
(do not "compress" any files)
and click [OK]
Try your scan again.

This is a temporary fix. You need more hard disk space.

When I try to burn disks on Adobe Premiere Elements 7 I get an error that says"insufficient disk space on drive for creating temporaryburning files" What can I/must I do to fix this?


You don't have enough room on the drive designated as the "tempory files" drive. Check under preferences - there should be an option for "scratch" disks where you can see which drive it is. Then either make more room on that drive - or change the option to a different drive that has more room.


"are we there yet?"

No space error


This is due to the file transfer limitations bound by the file format FAT32 (no files larger than 4GB and no folders that contain more than 1000 files). Try formatting the drive to NTFS.

Hard drive thinks its full but its not


Does your computer have a backup and recovery program? We've found with some of our notebooks that if you allow the notebook to make a backup but don't specify where to do it, your hard drive makes a backup of the hard drive on the hard drive.

Non ntfs problem


One possible work around
Provided you have access to another PC and feel comfortable with taking your hard drive out of your PC and putting it back in

1. buy a USB external hard drive enclosure and install your hard drive into it
2. connect this USB hard drive to another PC
3. create some free space by deleting some files (see Safe files to delete below for details)
4. reinstall hard drive back into your PC and try to boot normally

Safe files to delete
1. temporary files - on Win XP these are normally in "C:\WINDOWS\Temp"
2. temporary internet files - on Win XP these are normally in "C:\Documents and Settings\[Your Username]\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files"
3. other temporary files - on Win XP these are normally in "C:\Documents and Settings\[Your Username]\Local Settings\Temp"
Note that if you have more than one user account on the PC, then each user could have files that are safe to delete in the folders mentioned in number 2 and 3
