Download a trial of DiskState (type it into Google to find it).

It will map out all of the large amounts of data on your computer. If you find that the size doesn't match up to what you expected, there may be some hidden or secure folders that you can't access taking up all the space.

Thanks for the help in advance, i have two issues if u could plz help me with i have an acer aspire 5315 laptop with 80Gb memory. The thing is this memory is separated into two hard drives, C and D. 1)I...


Disk D is for storing recovery configurations. To see what happened to your memory, go to the root directory C: from your "My Computer" icon. Scroll to the folders in the root. Right click each folder and select "Properties." The drive will add up all the memory being used by that folder. Take notes on what you have and then drill down into the folders that seem to be using more space than they should be. Delete stuff you don't need. Let me know if you have more questions.

Microsoft Word Suite


One solution is USB memory stick.

You can copy contents of a CD to USB drive, and then run the installation from there.

You will need memory stick large enough to support this data (512 MB or 1 GB, it depends).

Create a folder named Word on USB disk, then copy all the files and folders from a CD to this folder.

Insert USB disk in Aspire One and run setup.exe from this folder you created.

Erase unnecessary files in the windows temporary folder.
Double Click My Computer.
Double Click the drive where windows are installed. This is typically drive C.
Double Click the windows folder. This is typically C:\Windows.
Double Click the temp folder. This is typically C:\Windows\temp.
Press control A to select all files and folders.
Press the delete key.

Close all applications.
Disable your screen saver.
Disable all the programs on the taskbar if possible.
Click Start.
Click Program.

Click System Tools.
Click Defrag.

Click Ok.
Enable your screen saver.


Remove Startup programs (if you know what you are doing)
Click Start
Select Run
Type msconfig in the text box
The "System Configuration Utility" window will open

A list of programs will be shown each having a checkbox to the left of the name.
Click on the checkbox to enable the program (so it runs when windows boots) and click a second time to Uncheck the box to disable the program (so it does not run when windows boots).

Right click My Computer
Click Properties
The System Properties window lists the amount of RAM in your PC
Click Performance
Click Virtual Memory
Click Let me specify my own virtual memory settings
Click the arrow next to the hard disk.
Here are some guidelines to choose the best location for your virtual memory file
a) Select the quickest hard disk.
b) If you have, two hard disks that are similar in performance select the hard disk that does not contain Windows system files (usually C:).
c) Make sure the drive has free space equal to at least twice the size of the recommended swap file size.
d) If the partition is on the same physical drive, select the partition in alphabetical order. For example, if you have one 20GB hard disk and you partition it into two 10GB partitions drive C & D) You should pick Drive C over Drive D if meets all the guidelines of a, b & c.

Set the Minimum/Maximum to: With large hard disks settings at least 128mb or 256mb swap file should be sufficient in almost every situation.
Note: The amount of RAM plus the size of the virtual memory file is the maximum amount of RAM you can use at once.
Click OK.
After setting the size of the virtual memory file windows will display the following message. You have chosen not to let windows manage virtual memory automatically.
Click Yes.
You must restart your computer before the new settings will take effect. Do you want to restart your computer now?

Click Yes
