Question about Acer Aspire 9410-4317 Notebook
Sorry I dont know much about computers so my wording may not b correct etc. The problem is this - I have an Acer Aspire 5715Z with windows Vista. I have had it since about October. When I go in 2 my computer it is saying I have - Acer C: 482MB free of 32.5 GB file system NTFS but data D: 31.1 GB free of 32.2 GB
I tried downloading something and it's said I have no space. Why are things not saving in the other drive 2? and what do I have 2 do 2 fix this?
I have since used this advice -
You need to backup and clear off some of your C: drive, most likely your machine is running much slower because of it (Windows requires more room for a proper cache).
But now my ACER C: drive still only has 5.30GB free of 32.5GB and DATA D: drive has 15.2 GB free of 32.2 GB
Does this not mean that I now have less space left overall?! I dont understand how I have so little space left in a relatively new computer?
Look first make habit of saving ur downloads to Drive D ok never save ur download s on drive Acer : C secondly let me tell u windows Vista is a bulky OS and it needs much space on hard drive thats why atleast 120 Gb is recommended for Vista it seems like u have an 80 gb hard drive Vista will work but it will take much of ur drive space as my Vista installation is around 39 GB now i dont know but it grows his size day by day thats why some ppl with less system resources go back to XP , u can free up more disk space by doing following:
go to http://www.ccleaner.com download ans install it run the cleaner and look for temp files that may be lying and occupying disk space.
2. Go to My Computer Right click on Acer C take properties click button Disk cleanup select files from all users let it scan ur hard drive and then it will present u with some temp files , hibernation files and thumbnail files and error reporting files check the boxes and perform the cleanup select all of them u will get some space press OK it will cleanup and delete these files and u will see some space freed up, in more options in the same windows u can also uninstall some progrmas on ur C drive which u installed and u no longerr want now u can un install them as well after that come out of it
3. Now go to My computer right click and take properties of Acer C now go to Tools Tab and select Defragment Now and select C drive and defrag ur drive this will take time after this correct free space will be visible to u after all cleaning steps
if u get enuff space u wanted then it is ok otherwise u can also take some space from the D drive and can merge into C drive if u want i can help u in that but i prefer changing ur hard drive as it is too small for a system like Vista , XP will give u no trouble on that drive
pls let me know and do rate me if i fixya problem
