My computer man split the memory into local disk (C:) and local disk (F:). Now my C: is full and I need to shift to F:. How do I do it to create more space. I have compressed most of the files in C: but still I am running short of space... Please advise

you can remove temporary internet files, and turn off, then turn on again system restore. Both should free up a bit of space. Otherwise, Check your hard drive using a different antivirus program. If your hard drive is split into multiple partitions, you could repartition it to give more space to the system drive (usually C:)

you must RUN the utility disk clean up go to local disk c or d: click the properties in the disk, go to the tab took, and execute. 2) in the same place run the check Now 3) Uninstall some program that you are NOT using, for to free Memory and disk space. God bless you
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.
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.
Hi j0shuatsb, Acer like many other manufactures seem to design their system to fail or have issues just after their 1 year warranty is up. Like other Microsoft windows operating systems, when you receive an error message that you're memory is full. This does not mean you have run out of RAM = memory. You're notebook can only run a max of 4GB of memory. The error message refers to hard disk drive space. Depending on you're operating system, windows will lock out so much drive space so it can move about. All notebooks also have a hidden partition which holds drivers & programs used in combination for running the system restore. This hidden partition can range in size from 2GB up to 4GB. This also lessens you're total hard disk drive space. Bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your memory. What you need is a larger hard disk drive. Notice the Technical specifications from this link: http://www.acer.co.uk/public/page9.do?sp=page4&dau34.oid=24360&UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=17&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&ctx3=-1&ctx4=United+Kingdom&crc=512458878 It does not show what size you're SATA hard disk drive is. Since you are still in warranty, now would be the time to increase you're drive size. On another note, if you're HDD is the standard 160GB than there is an issue with your current HDD. Please run a full system virus scan. Suggest you back up all you're personal data on to a DVD & run you're system restore CD including a format to help you regain you're HDD full space. A temporary fix would be to uninstall any non needed programs through Add/Remove programs. This should free up some space. Many Acer programs you do not use at all or need should be the first to go.
1. Check your PC or motherboard manufacture for BIOS upgrade and upgrade BIOS firmware.
2. Try to start your PC in a safe mode by pressing F8 before windows starts. Then select a safe mode with or without network support.
3. If your computer starts in the safe mode, check if your hard drive is not full or close to full. If it is close to full you need to remove some data from your disk. Try to remove temporary files and clear your Recycle Bin. Restart your computer.
4. You might run low on your memory. If your PC doesn't have enough physical memory, windows is creating virtual memory by using space from your hard drive.
5. If neither solution works, try to run a "CHKDSK C: /R" from recovery console.
You seem to be a little mixed with your question,256MB refers to your memory, which applications use to work, but when you mention download space, you would be refering to your hard drive space.
If you right click on My Computer, then click on explore, then look at your 'C' drive it will tell you how much space you have left.
If you are running Windows XP 512MB of memory is adequate, unless you are photo or video editing, or using memory hungry programmes, in which case 1GB would be better for performance, depending on the maximum amount your motherboard will allow.
