It means your drive has too much space. I would try to clear all of the files that you may not need or if you do need them, transfer some of the files to a cloud-based drive such as MiMedia or DropBox. Another solution would be to purchase another hard drive with more space or get an external TB HD where you can transfer the data there.

If you plan to go with purchasing a new hard drive, you will want to find a way to transfer the data without having a hard time doing it. There are SATA/ADE harddrive transfer kits available by going here. I have done this for my husband so this kit worked well with his PC.

But if you want to get an external hard drive which is simple because all you have to do is simply connect is via usb port on your PC and you're able to copy files to lessen your hard drive space. So everytime your current hard drive gets to red again, you can plug up your usb hard drive again. You can get it here. Hope this helps.

    Really, too much space??? Red means that there is low space in the drive, there's no such thing as too much space.

    Ok whatever you're running on, if it shows red, it does mean the hard drive is running out of space, therefore, it is too much space. One thing I may need is what is the size of your hard drive and what is your operating system?

    I'm just saying a useful tip for you: don't wait on them to answer, also, you need to a little bit learn english, some of your sentences are illogical, hardly to undertsand the meaning like too much diskspace, too much used...diskspace.

    Ok tomas, I do know english, I am an American and I have taken up English. I am not a foreigner- no offense to anyone who was born from another country. Please keep your opinions to yourself. This is just how I talk. How can you not understand diskspace? It basically means the amount of space that's in a hard drive. Please do not comment on anymore of my comments. God bless!

Hi,
If you're using Windows 7 or 8 or Vista, that means that a lot of the disk has been used, and the left memory in the disk is low. Can you please provide me with the data of max space on the disk, used space and the remaining space. Thank you!

When i install fifa 10 or fifa 08 my pc show a problem that, it cannot read the group1.cab file. and then show the error code is 2350


that is basically a disc error. it means that the file named in the error message (.cab) file is not recognized or simply the system cannot copy and extract files from it to complete the installation.
resolution:
Create a folder in your local disk and name it Disk-1 then copy all the files of your cd-installer to that folder. do the same for DIsk 2 and so on. When during copying of files to your local disk produces error like "cannot read from device", it means that the source cd is defective with scratches and you need to buy a new installer. when no errors are detected, then open and run the setup.exe file in Disk-1.

E.Machine Local ( D ) Drive


You need to move some files from the D to the C. First I'd check the disk space by right clicking My Computer and choose Manage, then click on disk drives. See if any drive has some space if not you'll need to delete some items.
