You can use a program like Acronis to make an image of the 18 GB drive and copy it to the 280 gb drive, then just remove the 18 GB drive.

You can download acronis from www.download.com

Get full full capacity of external 2 tera Seagate that now is reaing only 110 gig


This has happened to me before, also. What I had done was copy a disc IMAGE from the old, smaller drive to the larger drive - and the larger one turned into the same size! You did not mention your operating system (Windows, Mac, etc) but my solution was in Windows to go to Disk Management function and view the unallocated space left. Sure enough, there was "unclaimed/unused" space for the entire difference in size. Following the instructions of the Disk Management tool, I just added the remaining space to what was C: drive. I could have just as easily created a different drive space with the leftover, it's up to you - but I find it preferable to have my space in one chunk.

Note: This is a very sensitive area of Windows when you're dealing with file systems. A raw beginner might want to have an experienced friend help them through it, but if you follow instructions EXACTLY even a first-timer should be able to do it. If this solution does not work, let us know. Best wishes - Mark

Hard disk c drive is full


You will have to re-do your software Operating Software Windows and install it to D: as the primary drive. Why not just do a good cleaning of the main drive send anything over to D: that can be saved there and free up the primary drive making more room even better. Use the D: as a saving and use to gather all your goodies and take them off of the drive get rid of any unwanted software. Do a good cleanup I'm sure you will find lots of room once you do that. Just a suggestion!
That is what I do I have one for the operating system only primary C: and the other for things I wish to save to it that is bigger than the primary since all I will be doing is using the space on C: to just run Windows. Then anything else I save I either burn to a disk, slap it on a USB Stick or send it to a free 5 gig service thus illuminating clogging of my drives.
Most people do this when saving stuff they want to keep they get it off the primary drive in case of a crash. Again just a suggestion. John

Hi there , i have an acer travelmate 6592 laptop , the original 80 gig hard drive crashed , and i dont have the recovery disc , the hidden partition wont re install either , i have bought a new 320 gig...


You cannot get the full 320Gb capacity because the BIOS can only support a maximum of 127Gb.
You only hope is a BIOS firmware upgrade that can support 320Gb. Check out the Acer WEB site to see if a BIOS upgrade will solve your problem.
OTHERWISE
Install a 127Gb hard drive in your Acer and put the 320Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive because it is not affected by the BIOS limitation.

My 2Gig Sansa says it is full - and indeed almost the full two gigs are used up, and yet the music folder is not even 1 gig full and all the other folders, even the hidden ones, are empty - 0 bytes. Where...


The Sansa player can hook up to a computer in two different modes. Through normal use it can switch modes on it's own, although rare it can happen. Now stuff added in one mode can not be seen in the other mode and you can not delete the files. So you have MSC mode which means Mass storage class and is the best mode to use. Then MTP mode means Media transfer protocol, you have to use this mode if you use Napster and such to download MP3's with protected content (DRM) you have to set the player to one mode or the other, to see the files and delete the files you want to delete or to find the missing room. MSC makes your player look like a thumb drive, and is easy to use. If you need any more info go to SanDisk.com/support.

Maybe getting some of that stuff off of the C: drive will help. Windows needs 15% free drive space to run correctly. Going to a bigger drive is also an option. depends on how old the system is.
