Free space problem on two local drives

I have 2 local drives (C:) and (I:). Due to corrupt files on my (C:) drive I reinstalled OS to the (I:) drive and am using this partition exclusively. However, I only have 200MB of free space left on my (I:) drive whereas I have some 60GB of free space unused on my (C:) drive. Can I transfer somehow all that lovely free space onto my new (I:) drive?

Windows could not start because of an error in the software


This sounds as if some system files have become corrupted or damaged. Try starting up in safe mode. If this does not work I hate to say it but you are probably looking at having to reinstall the OS again. Check on Micrsofts web site for possible commands to use to repair the corrupted files, os before reinstall. Make sure you have a good backup of your files since in most cases reinstalling may wipe the drive clean. Sometimes you might be able to start a reinstall and it will find the existing system and repair it automatically but with MS products this might not happen. Good luck

Windows 7 os corrupted due to virus in HP mini notebook.not able to open any application even notepad.what is the solution?


The only solution would be to reinstall your Windows OS.
You can use a recovery disk if you have one, or you can install a fresh copy of Windows, using a Windows 7 installation CD.
Make sure you back up all your data to an external drive before reinstalling Windows to avoid loss of your files and data

Greetings, I need help trying to recover some files on my pc. I had an XP installation working fine on a single hd setup with about 25 gb free space. I tried partitioning the drive (c to free up that empty...

It seems like that "free" partition manager, was not free after all. When it's something as important as your HD you should seriously consider anything free as "if this doesn't work, u'll get NO help" type of thing. It sounds like it's trying to boot from the part of the drive that you partitioned and now can't because there is no OS there (or a damaged one). Depending upon how important the folders are u may want to consider professional recovery. Wish I had better news.

My OS drive is always running short of space. i've dedicated a 12 gb partition for my os drive. this problem prevents me from using my com properly.i cannot download an install even small programmes, not...


Assuming you're running Windows, a 12G partition is not really large enough as you already found out. It may be large enough for the operating system itself but not much else. Most likely, your temporary internet files, recycle bin and other "stuff" are also on that drive. One thing you can try is the Disk Cleanup tool. On XP go to Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools / Disk Cleanup. The default options are usually good but check them carefully. Also, don't compress old files. That can make your system run slower. You should be able to free up enough space to download your antivirus updates. Consider this a first step - you should investigate a larger partition for your OS. Make sure temorary files, program installs, etc. are going to a different drive and you should be cleaning up OS updates and removing programs that you are not using.

Not much memory left in my powerbook


De-fragmentation does nothing to free up space. It only moves files that have been fragmented across scattered sectors into a file running across contiguous sectors. This speeds up disk read operations and is less stress/wear on the hard drive. To free up space... continue what you're doing. Move all non-essential files to an external drive and uninstall any programs that you don't really need.
