When you download files/tunes etc, you may be able to select a folder on your D drive to save them (create the folders before you go onto the Internet).
If you cannot save them in the D drive folders, then save them on your C drive/Desktop and move them to the D drive folders after you exit the Internet.

I assume you meant use drive "C" to go on the internet. Drive C in windows is the standard partition where windows' important files are stored. By default, everything will run with files in C, including internet explorer. To put files on Drive D, open My Computer and go to your D drive, you can then drag and drop files from your desktop to your D drive.

You're using both already at the same time.

Your hard drive was just partitioned.

Whenever you choose to save files you've got to tell windows where you want them to save, either the D: or the C:

You can also just join the partitions by using a program called Partition Magic

I'm not sure if there is a free version or another program quite like it.

If you have any more questions, let me know.

Best of luck!

I have a acer aspire 3684NWXMi series with a 80 GB hard disk drive and want to upgrade to the 320 - 500 GB do I have to buy a certain make or brand for it to work in my laptop?


According to this review there is no optical drive, (CD/DVD drive),

http://www.naaptol.com/laptops/acer-aspire-3684nwxmi/P/779.html

The new harddrive is blank. No Operating System on it.

No Windows.

After a person installs a new harddrive, the basic procedure is to use the Restoration Disk, and when asked choose Full Install.
(Destructive Installation)

No optical drive.

[No Restoration Disk is NO problem. Contact HP Support.
In the US it is $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Have more info for US, and other countries if you need it ]

This means you will go through some 'changes', if no optical drive.
More than I believe you may wish to take on.
(Don't want to overstep myself, or seem rude)

The next thing is there may be a harddrive limit.
Might be capped at 135GB, and not allow a 300, or 500GB harddrive.
If this holds true the harddrive is then partitioned;

300GB harddrive;
Partitioned into 3 partitions, of 100GB each; or 4 partitions of 75GB each.

500GB harddrive;
Partitioned into 4 partitions of 125GB each.

Fools BIOS into thinking there is just a 75GB, or 100GB, or 125GB harddrive; instead of a 300GB, or 500GB unit.

Yes. More headache if you may not be adept.

I suggest using an external harddrive instead.

Just my thoughts,

This fault is usually a disk controller problem/fault or the hard drive is not making proper connection or most likely the hard drive is faulty.
Try reseating the hard drive first.
If this doesn't work, check the BIOS to see if it detects the hard drive.
If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external hard drive and cannot open the folders and files, then the hard drive is confirmed faulty.
Install a new hard drive and install Windows on this drive together with the device drivers and programs to get a working laptop again.

Not enought disk space


You will need to find out what is taking up the space. Pictures, games, or pther programs.

Check to make sure that the there are no items in the Recycled Items bin (the waste basket on the desktop). In Internet Explorer go to tools\internet options and delete all temporary internet files, these do not get automatically deleted.

Go to control panel and choose add\remove programs. Are there programs in there that you no longer use?

Do you have loads of pictures on your computer? Can you transfer them to a CD, this way you can delete the pictures on your hard drive.

Mim2120 extra memory


First, you are talking about storage space not memory. Make sure to make that distinction when posting for help so we know what to help you with.

How much space do you have total? To check the size and free space do this:
  1. Click on the Start button located in the lower left corner of the Taskbar.
  2. In the menu that pops up, click on My Computer to open the window.
  3. Single click on the Local Disk (C:). You will see the size of the hard drive at the bottom of the blue bar on the left of the window.
  4. If you do not see it, then click on Details. you will see how big the hard drive is under Total Size in GB and how much of that space is unused (Free Space)/li>

You may not be able to free up a lot of space - it may be better to upgrade to a bigger hard drive. Most computer stores can also copy your old drive to the new one for you so you dont have to reinstall windows.
