Thought of doing system restore, but I got message "System restore is suspended because there is not enough disk space available on the system drive C:/ ....ensure at least 200mbs of space are available on this drive. DUUUHHH!! help anyone?

    Thanks for the info. my OS is Win XP Home Ed. Right now I only have
    10.8MB free space. out of 4GB. I dont understand why theres a Local D:/
    dat i have 5.86 GB free space left.
    What do I need to delete or is it possible to transfer to that drive? how to?

    Hi SabZai,

    thanks for the additional information! Did you ever try to save something to drive D:, since there is so much space left? To me it seems this partition (it's only one drive inside of your computer and this drive is divided into two partitions, normally one for the system = drive (better: partition) c: and the other one for recovery and/or user data - in your case drive d:).

    Please try and let us know!

    Kind regards,

    Hi SabZai,


    as far as I know your netbook offers 4 GB disk space at all. Depending on the size of your operating system (which you didn't let us know yet) there will never be much space left for saving additional files...


    For the system restore you would need to free up more space which could be done by first saving the files you want to delete to an external drive and then to delete them from drive C: (just to be on the safe side!).


    Unfortunately these are the only hints I can give you right now; if I would know the operating system I could possibly do more for you...


    Greetings,

How big is the drive?
how much space do you have free?
how big is your paging/virtual memory file?
how big is your recycle bin?
all of these take space too.
you will need approx 20% of drive space free if it has a system installed on it.
i think you may need a bigger drive or another one for files etc so the system can run unobstructed.

    it does not matter what system you are using.
    you need a new hard drive. your system will not run with only a few mb of space.
    your d drive is just a partition that the system can not use.
    it's for storing data,i.e. pics, vids,etc.
    i suggest a new hard drive of at least 160gb for your system to be installed on. it would not be worth upgrading to anything smaller.
    you wont be able to delete or move system files and nearly 4gb sounds about right for an xp install. my vista system files are nearly 11gb.

I tried deleting everything from my memory stick becaues there is not enough space for my file, but after deleting it, I still dont have enough space, it keeps saying the avaliable space is 270MB even tho...


Try to format the drive from your computer, instead of just erasing it. Also, memory cards do go bad too.....some times quite easily.

The good news is they are VERY inexpensive now of days if you do need to replace it.

HHD MEMORY


Okay just to tell you the PS3 has 5 gbs already taken up on it.
I think its because the memories of the Saved Files you have on the Ps3 is usually a big amount of room on the PS3. Btw the Ps3 has updates so if you have a low amount of GBs its probably cuz of updates you should have about 48 GB of room left on the Ps3 try deleting the saved Files or try looking at how big the saved Files are.

Protected phone memory.


Try saving all the data you want saved to your PC, then take your sd card out, (always use the menu to remove the sd card), go into the menu and reset the phone to factory settings. it will clear out lots of unseen dust files that are left behind when opening and deleting files, applications and pics etc...
