Question about Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64BIT Operating System Software OEM DVD

1 Answer

Got a problem with my hard drive. I got my hard disk partitioned a while ago. Its 180GB. There are no heavy files on the drive but it keeps popping up the message of low disk space. When i checked the properties, it shows only 50mb available. When i browse thru the folders, i see no files that maybe taking up that much space. Pls help. I m worried my laptop might crash. M using sony viao with windows 7 64 bit. Thanks..!

Most likely to be either the waste basket not being emptied for a user, or it could be the system restore where old restore points exist. In windows explorer, right click the disk and select 'disk cleanup' Give that a go.

In the console tree, click Computer Management (Local), click Storage, and then click Disk Management.
3.
Right-click the partition, logical drive, or basic volume you want to delete, and then click Delete Partition.

• To perform this procedure on a local computer, you must be a member of the Backup Operators group or Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. To perform this procedure remotely, you must be a member of the Backup Operators group or Administrators group on the remote computer. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

• To open Computer Management, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.
• You cannot delete the system volume, boot volume, or any volume that contains the active paging file or crash dump (memory dump), or OEM partition.
• You cannot delete an extended partition unless the extended partition is empty.
All the logical drives in an extended partition be deleted before you can delete the extended partition.

SOURCE: Where is the /System32 folder physically located on the drive?

Hi there.
This is the path >>>>>> c:/windows/system32....

So, click on "my computer", you will see "local disk c", click on that, if it says "these folders are hidden" click on "show files". Then click on the "windows" folder, in that folder you will find "system32" folder.

Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

SOURCE: How can I mount an IBM AIX hard drive in Windows?

AIX uses a file system that is not supported by Microsoft Windows. Most likely you will need another AIX system to read the file system. I recommend that you contact a hard drive recovery service like Ontrack Data Recovery and get some guidance.

You should remove it from the Windows computer ASAP. Windows has the habit of making changes to any disk it sees and you may lose everything!

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: what is pc health

Pc health is a new virus. I am trying to disable it. try renaming the files in the folder with a right click or some other way if the other tries do not work. Also change the folder options by first making the PCHEALTH folder read only and then making it all not read only.
you will have to delete the User and Software registry keys after reinstalling windows.

How to solve low disk space warning on my Windows 7 laptop?


It sounds like you have too much running in the start menu. If you go there you have to be careful what you stop from loading. Go to your start and left click. The search box at the bottom type msconfig Go to the startup tab. Anything like Adobe reader, Java, any toolbars, quicktime, realplayer or anything that doesn't need to start when you boot the computer uncheck the box on the left beside it. When you click apply and ok it will ask you to restart the computer. After you do a box will popup and you can check the box and click and you won't see it again. But like I said you can stop the wrong things there. If you don't feel comfortable trying it get someone you know who is tech savvy to help you. Anything Microsoft, Intel, or with your computer brand name needs to stay.

Try the disk cleanup in the disk properties (right click the disk icon).
You can really free up a lot of space by deleting temp files, memory dump files and all restore point but the last. The last thing you only want to do if your system is running stable of course.
Also make sure to defrag after disk cleanup to maximize the efficient use of the free space.

Computer keeps freezing and losing work i have


Happens to the best of us, buddy. In time with, miscellaneous program installs making minor tweaks to system files here and there, the ol girl is bound to get cluttered. Your best option is to do a quick Time Machine backup which will back up all your documents and personal items, then pop in your leopard disk to do a quick reinstall. Your computer will be shiny and like new :) Boot from the disk. When it comes up select the disk utility from the menu bar and partition the hard drive to 1 partition and take the default settings (but name the partition whatever you want, this is where you would type Hard Disk if you want it to remain titled that). Continue on the install leopard path, and when it's all done and you're logged in, fire up Time Machine and restore your stuff.
Grab a beer and enjoy your fresh install :)

My computer don't use the all Hard Disk memory


You can resize the partition with a program called Gparted. You can download it here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=115843&package_id=271779
Download the .ISO file and burn it to a disk as an Image. Boot from the disk at startup and follow the instructions to resize your partition. Gparted is a very easy program to use so you shouldn't have any problems.

Acomdata external hard drive


Hi,

No ned to check in that.

The external hard drive can be fomatted by : 

Open the my computer, in the my computer or explorer window you should see the drive letter for the external drive.

Right click on the drive you will get the popup menu.

In that select the format option.

But always use NTFS file formatting system.NTFS provides several advantages over FAT32, including support for larger ile sizes.

Use the full format option.

Wait for sometime, until the format is completed.

Then you are good to go.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
