Copy my documents to an external hard drive then delete pictures, music, video and documents to free up space. Also go to add remove programs in control panel and see if you can uninstall some programs you don't use. After that run a disk cleanup and then defragmentation. Let me know if this helps.
thanks,
Henry

The C drive on my PC showed a red bar, saying that it has very little space. What can I do?


Make a backup as soon as possible. And if you don't have a virus, assume you drive is dying. Run the check disk program AFTER the backup, to see ho bad it is and start saving for a new HD.

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 :-

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.

Ok my issue is that I had a Dell Optiplex given to


Check your hard drive usage and capacity in the system properties before investing in a new hard drive -- sometimes malware can trick you into deleting programs and files. If you are running Windows XP or Vista, open the Start menu and click on My Computer (Computer, if you're running Vista). Right click on the C: drive and select Properties. It will show you how much space your hard drive has, and how much is being used.

If you really do have very little space, try to move large files like movies and music to external storage such as DVDs. You can also run the Disk Cleanup utility to delete temporary files and empty caches.

My dell dimension 3000 pc has run out of memory space on the C-drive. How do I add more memory?


You can't directly add additional memory space to the C drive, but you can add additional hard drive and move the files from C drive to the additional drive. If there's enough space on D or E drive, you can move from C drive to the other drive. Note that your C drive includes your Desktop, My Documents files, My videos, My pictures, My Music etc.. So make sure you haven't saved extra files on you Desktop or My Documents. To free up some space, you can run DiskCleanup utility which is built-in with the Operating System. To do this, Right click on the C drive, Properties - Disk Cleanup... and then provide positive input, eg. yes or ok. good luck..

There's a free program that works great for partitioning hard drives and restoring boot logs. It's called GParted and can be downloaded at the link below. You can choose from there if you want the Live CD or to run it within your operating system.

Local Disk C running out of space but the D drive has plenty of space. How to make the D drive the primary partition? Os in on C drive windows Vista.


Do you run Disk Cleanup regularly (once a month)? This will free up disk space on the C drive, it remover old temporary files and compressed files as well as other files.
You can also move and save your data files to the D drive, so the C drive has only the operating system files and program files.

I have a Compaq Presario F700 laptop. It was telling me I have low disk space on Presario_RD (D). I have already deleted alot files and programs and I have also did a disk cleanup and ran the disk...


"low disk space on Presario_RD (D)"
This looks like you are running low on disk space on your D: drive, not your C:. If you were deleting files and programs, I bet it was on C:
It is now very common for manufacturers to split the hard drive into 2 partitions, C: for everyday use and a smaller D: partition that hold recovery files to restore the computer to a factory install state. If your computer was set up this way, the D: is not suppose to be used but I have run into systems were backup programs are putting the backup files on D: and filling it up.
You need to find out what is writing to D: and stop it and then remove the files it placed there.
Be very careful with D:, if you remove the wrong files you may not be able to reinstall windows if you have a serious problem unless you have created recovery CDs.

3. look at the amount of used space in blue , and free space you have in pink

to free up more hard drive space

Go to the add/remove programs in control panel

Look for programs that you don't need and uninstall them.
