Let me explain you exactly
hoping that there is enough amount of space allotted for c drive

  • updating the operating system that is turning on windows updates consumes lot of space for example it can consume an average of 2gb if you are updating regularly the operating system
  • updating the antivirus regularly consumes a lot of space

ok now coming to the point,even if you have set the default download drive as other than c drive. when you download any stuff the downloaded file is temporarily stored in c drive before transferring it to the destination set by you. so,whenever you download any thing make sure there is quite a amount of space.

  • defragment the drive regularly
  • allot atleast 20gb for c drive
  • do not store the downloaded files in c drive
  • make sure you install only necessary updates of your operating system using custom install
  • updating a antivirus weekly is sufficient
install a software called tuneup utilities which you can downnload from the below link

Don't be panic. you can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Asoftech-Data-Recovery/290956907592436?sk=info
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

My s7000 batterries do not last very long i am wondering if something is draining them down


PRESS RELEASE
Release Date: 12 January 2004


Fujifilm today announced that a number of early FinePix S7000 Zoom digital cameras may experience battery power depletion when used with some CompactFlash™ memory cards.

This fault does not occur when the S7000 is used with either an xD-Picture Card™ or a Microdrive™, nor does it occur in any other Fujifilm products that offer a CompactFlash™ storage facility, such as the FinePix S2 Pro, S602, S602 Pro or M603.

Cameras with serial numbers above 34L60001 (inclusive) were produced after 15 December 2003 and therefore will definitely not experience this battery drain problem.

In the short term, the problem can be avoided by unloading then re-loading the batteries just after the camera is switched off. The camera's power supply will then perform normally.

My internet d loding ver slow


there are so many things that could cause this from a full hard drive to just a bad connection. start with the basics like clean up the computer and get rid of stuff you dont need anymore. go to majorgeeks.com and download CCleaner. this is a free program and will clean up your computer by getting rid of all the junk files left behind from internet searches. then there is also a regestry checker on the program that is wonderful. it also has a uninstaller to completely remove old programs. if you want you can google CCleaner and download it that way.
Clean that computer and see if things pick up.
