    Please answer the above questions so that we can determine exact steps to free up some memory in your local disk C:/.

    I would not advice you to compress the said drive if your OS is installed on it. Compression will slowdown your computer. In case, if you are using xp/vista please run "file clean up" utility regularly, it is located under (Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>disk clean up.). It applies to both xp and vista (any version).

    What operating system are you using? (i,e XP, Vista)

    How much space is on each drive?

    What is the total Drive Size?

    Do you want to keep both partitions/drives?

Could not initialize photoshop because scratch disks are full

Check to see if your system has enough memory and hard drive space. Photoshop should tell you how much memory and space you need. If this is a problem, you'll need to free up space. Photoshop may need to be uninstalled and reinstalled.
The scratch disks are areas of memory that hold your edits. If you don't have enough memory, you'll need to install more.

Format the Operating system and start fresh

Some useless programs or virus's may be slowing down your system
a reset will enable you to regain full speed of your pc again.
And don't forget even with loads of memory the CPU may be lacking to run most of today's programs all at once.

How do i find out how much free space is left on my hard drive. the computer is moving slowly

click on "My Computer" right click on local disc "C" and click on properties. This will show you in graph form how much spave you have left. Slow downs on computers are more from a shortage of ram memory and lots of temp files clogging up the system.

Cant download new Windows live messenger, not enough space!!!


Then you need to clear out more space to your c drive, you could try a program called **** cleaner (ccleaner)

if you haven't emptied your temporary files etc in a while, this program will most likely clear out enough space for you to install live messenger.

Memory stick duo reads full but it is not really that full

Brought computer an memory is full

Memory cannot be "full", Hard Disk space can be full. Is this what you are referring to? To free up more memory you can shut down some programs, you can also uninstall programs and delete files to free up more hard disk space. Or buy a new hard drive.

Video Won't Save


The issue you have posted regarding that you are getting an error message that you cannot save the video because of not enough memory could be related to not enough drive space, I would appreciate if you could perform few steps below to isolate and fix the issue.

  1. Click on start point to My Computer and click on it.
  2. Once the My Compute page is displayed, right click on drive C and left click on properties.
3. Check if there is enough disk space available, if YES then follow the steps below or if NO then try to delete few waste or unused files to crate disk space, and try saving the video file that you were trying earlier.
  1. If you find that there is enough disk space then, try to save the file on the hard drive by selecting a different location, it could be that your are trying to save the file in a location which does not have enough memory or it could be right protected for example a CD.
In order to save the file on to a different location all you need to do is, Click on “File” and click on “Save As” option then in the box which pops up on your screen you need to look for a “Save In” option at the top and change it to “C:” or “Local Drive” and then click on “Save” at the bottom.

Should you require any further assistance regarding your computer related to this or any other issue in future please contact me I will be more than glad to assist you.
