SOURCE: I have a 2006 HP Pavillion PC main process: AMD

The short answer to your question is "Yes" however, all information on the drive would be lost. As a work-around, store/move more information to the D: volume. Perhaps install any new software programs to D: rather than C:

SOURCE: my pen drive is of

Insert the USB stick in your computer, then go to "Start" then "My Computer", locate the USB icon and right click and select "Properties". From there you can do a format of the stick. This will erase all the data including some hidden files that you might have and solve the problem.

Note that even though it says 2Gb, the data you can use is slightly less. This is true for any storage device out there.

Startup disk is full on Mac. How to clean it?


The OS X flashes the message 'Startup disk is almost full' when your OS drive (boot disk) is out of free spaces. Though it is not a major issue but its solution should be made asap.

You can make some quick free spaces through below tips/tricks

1) Empty Your Trash
2) Lighten your Download folder by removing unnecessary downloads
3) De-Clutter your Desktop
4) Empty Caches
5) Empty Logs
6) Lighten your Dashboard
7) Get rid of unwanted apps

Since your hard drive is large (1 TB), I recommend you use free clean up Mac software in order to get rid of garbage from your Macintosh HDD. You can free clean up your Mac with Stellar Speedup Mac tool.

When the drive is plugged in, empty the recycle bin or trash can on the computer. It may still being seeing used space because the files are technically still there. they don't really go away till you empty that recycle bin.

New DVD shows free space as 0 in my DVD drive.Although it allows me to copy on it.


Use DVD burning software like Nero or Roxio to check if DVD disc is empty as windows may not recognize the empty space of disc, if issue persists - update the firmware of the DVD drive, you need to contact drive manufacturer to obtain the updated firmware.

Acer 5315 HD C is full HD D empty


Very likely the answer is yes, IF: 1) there is enough space and 2) that D drive is not being used for something else. Check on what is on the D drive. It's usually reserved by the manufacturer and contains OS restore files (used for restoring your system after a crash). Don't delete these, but if there is enough free space, just create a new folder and put your files in there.

Pen drive display free space 0 byte and used space also 0 byte


Try formatting the drive. Assuming Windows XP, just open your "my computer" icon, right-click on the device and choose format. Be aware, formatting will remove any data you may have had on there previously.

If you're using another OS, or if it's an existing drive, please re-state your question giving further details (what OS, what you are trying to retrieve, etc).

Windows asking me to format my flash drive


Just format your flash drive! Before you start formatting your flash drive, transfer all data from your flash drive 'cause when you format your flash drive, it will erase all the data. After you have formatted the flash drive, then you can transfer back the data to your flash drive.
