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.

erase your drive and deallocate and repartiton your whole drive using fdisk(windows) or utility softwares like killdisk

Had to reinstall XP. WHERE ARE MY MUSIC/MOVIE FILES??


Hi
You have a point about the free space.
Why don't use the search utility to search for your missing files, if you know the names of them which i'm sure you will do, just type the file name in the search box, click on all files and folders, then click on advanced options, select it to search in hidden files and folders and see what happens, if it finds some then you will have a general idea of where they are.

Let me know how you get on.

hi Ewan
Vista is a massive install which takes over 7GB from a clean install, after updates it takes considerably more space and top of that are the programmes that we all like to use like nero, office etc, keep an eye on how much hard drive space you have on the boot (C:) partition because overfilling them can cause system crashes, back up as much music, vids, docs and pic as you can. You can also delete the temp files using a programme called ccleaner.exe which is freeware

I want to know all files being read/used at any time


Hi,

The follwing command will get you a complete list of files in your hard drive.

To list every file on your hard drive, you could pull out some combinations with DIR /S to show files in all subfolders, or you can just type in CHKDSK /V.

Doing so will show every file on your hard disk, and at the end, will show you a report of the total disk space, total free space, and more.

Save this report to a text file for later viewing. Type in

CHKDSK /V > DISKREPORT.TXT

Second :

This can be done by th following software which can be downloaded from here

Good Luck.
