No. you can delete the content in the d: drive and store data seperately. However, if you want to add the D: drive capaciti to C: drive , you can do it by some software like partition magic but that involves data loss and may require you to reinstall everything from scratch.

Thanks.

Is that a single physical drive and partitioned into 2 drives ? use partition magic but better back up all important data first.

The answer is no

you have to move personal files to drive D instead (photos, videos, music, saved documents)

for future program installations, you will be prompted where to install, select D drive

    safe way to move documents/files:

    copy from C then paste to D

    after a successful copy you can then delete the original

No, each drive has a certain amount of space and cannot be increased or decreased. Only if you have 2 volumes on the same drive, you can do this with Partition Magic or Norton Ghost. Hard drives are very cheap nowadays and may be your best option. If you use Partition Magic or Ghost, your data has to be backed up anyway because there is a chance of loosing everything on the drive.

How do i adjust the contrast on my acer aspire 5738z laptop


@tonymclau330

Try the following:

For Windows Vista / 7
1. Press the Fn+Left Arrow Key for brightness down and Fn+Right Arrow Key for brightness up (the Fn key is located at the left side of the space bar)
2. If that won't work, go to Start > type Power Options and click on the Power options icon.

I have an Aspire 5315 laptop. i have almost filled the C hard drive and have been alerted to not having enough room left. I have since realised that I have D hard drive that is empty, how do I use this...


Hi,
You have an option to transfer the free space from drive d: to drive c: and you can do it by using Disk Management under the Computer Management console:

to go to disk management:
Go to Control panel > click on Administrative Tools > Click on Computer Management > On the left you'll see disk management > Right click on drive D: click on shrink volume: > and you'll be asked what is the size pf space you want to transfer from d: to c: > after that click on shrink > after that an unallocated space will appear > right click on for you to make a primary drive > then after that right click on c: to extend the drive with the space you removed from d: > you should be able to get additional spcae now.

Thank you for using Fixya, you high recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.

I have installed an extra 1G memory but it has not


Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse-click on the 'C:' drive.
Click 'Properties'.
A pie-chart will display, showing how much disk-space is "used"
and how much is "available".
Probably, the "available" pie-slice is less than 5% of the whole pie.

What Windows did was to "expand" the "paging" file, making it 1GB larger than it was before you added the RAM. So, the amount of "used" space on your C: drive is now 1GB _more_ than before.

So, burn some CD/DVD disks with some of your files,
and then delete the files, after checking that the disks are readable, to make more "free" space on your 'C:' drive.

I want to upgrade my hard drive.


If you have 50% or more disk space free then you may not need a larger hard disk at this time. If you have 512Mb of RAM, you can get better performance with 1Gb or better still 2Gb of RAM if your Acer can support more than 1Gb of RAM.

Have tried a solution but there's still a problem


look first make habit of saving ur downloads to Drive D ok never save ur download s on drive Acer : C secondly let me tell u windows Vista is a bulky OS and it needs much space on hard drive thats why atleast 120 Gb is recommended for Vista it seems like u have an 80 gb hard drive Vista will work but it will take much of ur drive space as my Vista installation is around 39 GB now i dont know but it grows his size day by day thats why some ppl with less system resources go back to XP , u can free up more disk space by doing following:

go to http://www.ccleaner.com download ans install it run the cleaner and look for temp files that may be lying and occupying disk space.

2. Go to My Computer Right click on Acer C take properties click button Disk cleanup select files from all users let it scan ur hard drive and then it will present u with some temp files , hibernation files and thumbnail files and error reporting files check the boxes and perform the cleanup select all of them u will get some space press OK it will cleanup and delete these files and u will see some space freed up, in more options in the same windows u can also uninstall some progrmas on ur C drive which u installed and u no longerr want now u can un install them as well after that come out of it

3. Now go to My computer right click and take properties of Acer C now go to Tools Tab and select Defragment Now and select C drive and defrag ur drive this will take time after this correct free space will be visible to u after all cleaning steps

if u get enuff space u wanted then it is ok otherwise u can also take some space from the D drive and can merge into C drive if u want i can help u in that but i prefer changing ur hard drive as it is too small for a system like Vista , XP will give u no trouble on that drive


pls let me know and do rate me if i fixya problem

My acer aspire 5600 warned that I am running out of memory. My "D" drive says there is 30g of free space. How do I use it?


I think the computer actually said you were running low on Virtual Memory ... memory is the physical ram installed in your machine ... virtual memory is an area of hard drive the computer uses to store data when in runs out of "real" memory .....hard drive space is nothing to do with memory.

Ok, that got that cleared up :-) .... now the quickest way to get over low virtual memory problems is to install more RAM. For XP you should really have a minimum of 512mb .... 1gb is probably optimum. For Vista you should really have a minimum of 2gb.

So if your laptop has less than 512mb(xp) or 2gb(vista), the first thing to do would be to upgrade the memory.

Virtual memory problems should only ever crop up when you are running multiple applications .... so just try and keep the amount of programs you have running to a minimum. Instead of just minimizing programs, try to close them down to save memory.

Slow computer


Hello,

YOu computer meet the average power requirement nowadays. HOwever if you want to make more faster performance. U only need to add more memory. 1Gb is faster than my computer which is 512Mb.

Ok adding more memory make the computer faster from 1 Gb to 2GB this is much faster.

hard drive is nothing to do with the performance of the system. its only a storage of all files.

but besure to know the model of the memory before you buy. it should be identical to your current memory.
