No you cant modify a disk partition. you can format it but that will delete the content and then you will have extra space but deleting the content means you wont be able to use the feature of recovery again.

I suggest you leave it as it is, and buy an external hard drive to store into it.

When my laptop is running out of disc space, how do I go about to get more disc space?


You can either clean the hard drive of files you dont need to an external drive. Also if you right click properties on your C Drive you will see disc clean up run that and check all the boxes that will free up some space. Also checkout a program called CCleaner which will remove a fair amount of your browsing data which can be 1 - 2 GB depending how often you use the internet.

Need help freeing up disc space


Fragmentation of your hard disk will limit the amount of room reported on your HDD so a simple defrag could help. If you wish to free up disk space after doing a defrag and it still reports the same amount of room on your HDD you can use your add/remove and uninstalling any programs, games etc that are not used or used very little. If you are becoming limited on space due to windows updates etc then it maybe time to get a larger HDD and transfer all files and settings using transfer wizard to the new drive and then keep the old drive as a slave for extra storage. If you have done this and you still are very limited in HDD room then adding more space with another drive will increase it further but remember anything that has to do with windows or main programs such as office etc will all be stored to your main drive. I hope this helps.

How to install wins 8 on dell Inspiron netbook 1018


proceed according. God bless you
  1. Create a New Partition
    • 1 Launch the Disk Management tool on your computer running Windows 7 by opening the Start menu and typing "diskmgmt.msc" in the search bar. The Disk Management tool, showing all connected storage devices, appears.
    • 2 Pick the hard drive onto which you'll install Windows 8. The normal choice is Disk0, which is the primary hard drive. This disk should already show your C: drive, and possibly other items like recovery partitions.
    • 3 Verify the available free space on the selected disk. For most computers with no other dual-boot setups installed, the entire drive should be occupied, so you'll have to shrink an existing drive (like C:). If there is a section with a black bar titled "unallocated," then this represents free space not currently in use.
    • 4 Shrink your C: drive by right-clicking on it and selecting "Shrink Volume." The computer assesses and reports how much free space is available on the disk. You need a minimum of 16GB of free space to install 32-bit Windows 8 and 20GB of space for 64-bit Windows 8. Type either 160000 or 200000 in the "Enter the amount of space to shrink in MB" box. Increase that number if you want additional storage space for files and programs within Windows 8. Click "Shrink" to continue.
    • 5 Right-click on the new unallocated space and select "New Simple Volume." Leave the defaults, ensuring that NTFS is selected as the file system type. Give the drive a name, like "Windows 8."
    • 6 Insert your Windows 8 installation disc or USB drive into your computer. When the new drive is formatted, restart the computer and boot from your installation disc or drive.
    Install Windows 8
    • 7 Select "Custom" during the Windows 8 Setup initialization process.
    • 8 Select the new drive you created when the installation program asks you where you want to install Windows 8. Be sure to select the drive with the label you used for the new drive; if you install to the C: drive, you will overwrite your existing Windows 7 installation.
    • 9 Follow onscreen instructions to install Windows 8.
    • 10 Reboot after you install Windows 8, ensuring that you've removed any installation media. When the computer restarts, you are presented with a boot screen that lets you pick between Windows 7 and Windows 8.

My printer is printing slowly


Print speed can be affected by three important factors:
Available computer RAM
Available computer hard drive space
The HP All-in-One product paper sensor
Follow the steps below the ensure the computer is operating properly.

Step one: Verifying the amount of RAM
Verify the amount of RAM installed in the computer.
Determine the amount of memory currently in use by background programs or processes.
Programs/processes will run in the background even when no applications are running. Most of these programs/processes will be indicated by an icon in the lower right corner next to the time.
Less memory available for applications will result is slower processing time and consequently, printing speed.
To determine processes running in Windows 2000/XP , do the following:
Press Ctrl , Alt , and Delete simultaneously and then release.
From the Windows Security box, select Task Manager.
Click the Processes tab to view all running processes.
Click the Performance tab to view the total and available amount of memory.
To determine processes running in Windows 98 , do the following:
Open the Device Manager .
Click the Performance tab.
The available system resources will display as a percentage.
Turn off unnecessary background processes.
This will free up system resources and increase printing speed.
To turn off processes in Windows 98/ME/XP , do the following:
Click Start , Run , and type msconfig.
From the System Configuration Utility, click the Startup tab.
Determine what processes are unnecessary and remove the checkmark those items.

Step two: Verifying the amount of hard drive space
Follow the steps below to determine the amount of hard drive space on the main drive.
Open My Computer , right-click the C drive, and then click Properties .
This will display a chart along with the total hard drive space, used space, and available space.
Verify that there is at least 2-3 GB of hard drive space available.
The computer will require at least this amount to process printing data for simple text files, more for image files. The lower the amount of available hard drive space, will greater the time to process print data.
Step three: Ensuring the paper sensor is clean and not damaged
The all-in-one product paper sensor plays an important role in determining the print speed.
Printing a self-test or demo page will ensure that the paper sensor is in proper working condition. If the page completes in less than 40 seconds, the sensor is working correctly.
Even if the sensor is working correctly, the printer driver might need to have the paper sensor turned off. To turn off the sensor, follow the steps below:
Open the Printer folder, right-click the printer and click Printing Preferences or Properties.
From the Properties box, click thePaper/Quality or Features tab.
Under the Paper Type section, open the menu and select Plain Paper instead of Automatic.
This will disable the paper sensor and increase the print speed

Hp Pavilion a1620n, XP Edition. I Can't defrag my recovery drive.


Unfortunately you will need to do exactly what it states, which is free up some space. Defragging a drive requires there to be an ample amount of "swap space" available so that it can move files into that 15% of space while it rearragnes the placement of other files and puts them back in an order which will provide faster access to the files after the defrag is complete. being that it is your D: drive, can't you just move some files to your C: drive to make enough space for the defrag??

Please be sure to rate this solution.

Regards,

Joe

Hi. I cannot defrag D Recovery Drive due to lack of space.


You do NOT need to defrag the recovery partition. The contents of that partition are most likely in a compressed form, and in any case, unchanging, so do not require a defrag. It's a good idea to leave the recovery partition absolutely alone.

For future reference, if you need to defragment a normal partition in low space conditions, try something advanced like Diskeeper 2008. Diskeeper is the best and most powerful defragmenter, and can defragment drives with even less than 5-10% free disk space. By comparison, the windows defragger requires atleast 15%, and yet does not defrag system files.

You need to Go for Pc Recovery from HP it self or you can get the recovery cds for it.
Try :-
Opening Recovery Console
The following steps open a Recovery Console:
1. Shut Down Your Computer and as soon as you turn your computer On Keep pressing F10 key on the Key board,
You will get an welcome to recovery manager screen after that it will ask you if you want ot run recovery.
after that you need to follow the screen Instructions.

Or either try.
Using the Checkdisk Utility
Use the following steps start the recovery console and use chkdsk to resolve startup issues:
1.Open a recovery console. For more information about how to open a recovery console, refer to the section above: Opening Recovery Console .
2. At the C:\Windows> prompt in the recovery console enter chkdsk /r .
NOTE:If chkdsk /r fails to start from the selected prompt, type chkdsk c: /r (note the space before and after the drives c:). If you are using a recovery console or Tools CD, type chkdsk d: /r , or chkdsk h: /r .
Chkdsk starts.
The time required depends on the size of the hard drive (it checks unused portions of the hard drive) and the amount of software installed. When chkdsk /r completes the screen displays the size of the volume checked and the allocation units. If errors are detected the result are displayed as CHKDSK found and fixed one or more errors on the volume . This is normal.
3.Type EXIT and press Enter on the keyboard.
The PC restarts.
4.If you used the Recovery Console from a CD, while the PC is restarting, press the Eject button on the CD drive and wait a few seconds for the drive tray to open. Remove Recovery Console from the optical drive.

Recovery and backup


The "recovery drive" is pre-installed by HP, and usually only uses about 12 GB (+/-) of your space. It is essential not to disturb that drive. Now, I will explain what these terms mean.

"Backup" means to create a copy (often compressed) of the data on your PC, such that if your system were to crash - at the catastrophic end of the reasons for backup - you would be able to get back that data, or "recover" the data. So, backup is to make a copy of data and recovery is the process of restoring that same data onto a machine when it is necessary to bring the machine or data back to its earlier state.

For instance, say you got a virus that wiped out critical operating system files on your PC, and it wouldn't work. However, you have backed that PC up onto some external media. You then use that backup data to restore your PC to the state it was in at the time of the backup - just like it was before the virus hit!

HP's recovery drive is there because manufacturers do not include recovery discs with PC purchases any more. (Though they call it a drive, it is not really a separate drive. It is simply a partition of your actual one hard drive which is separated and labeled with a different drive letter.) The purpose of the recovery drive is twofold, with the primary reason for its existence being to provide you with a way to return your PC to the same state it was in when it shipped.

First, when you initially receive your PC, you should follow the instructions to create recovery discs. This should have been detailed in your setup guide. It is important to do this before there is any chance of the drive becoming corrupted or otherwise changed. However, be aware that HP only allows you to create these discs one time (it is preset in the software) - so you must take extra precaution with those discs because they can not be created again from the system.

In this fashion, you would be able to use the external discs to restore your computer to factory condition if some catastrophe struck and you needed to return your machine to its original condition. (Be aware, however, this is NOT a replacement for backing up, as it will cause you to lose any files, customization, options, settings, etc., that you have placed on the machine.)

Second, and working hand-in-hand with the first, the recovery drive's intention is to allow you to restore to factory state without having to go to your recovery discs. This is much faster, as it only has to read and write within the same disc drive - as opposed to reading and writing from an external disc, which is much slower and more cumbersome.

Now, it looks like you have a 100GB hard drive on your machine, which is really a pretty good size drive. Since you are asking about freeing up space, it sounds as though perhaps you are running short of space. Is this right? If you are really nearing capacity with the 100GB drive, we should explore ways to clean up your drive and perhaps offload sizeable files that you may not really need to have online all the time. There could also be certain system processes to be run that are designed to clear away "junk" that builds up over time.

Please post back if you need further help. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!
