Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 Notebook
"My Computer" shows both a "C" and "D" drive. "C" drive is 15g's and I have formatted so it is basically empty. "D" drive is 4g's and shows all but full. I have tried deleting everything that the computer will let me to free up space but everytime you use the computer it loses memory. Is the only drive in the laptop located on the back cover and then partitioned for 2 drives labels? This is my first go around with working on a laptop but have worked on desktop units. Thought they would be similar but maybe not. Yes ... I have done a clean-up and a defrag although the computer tells me that there is not enough room to do a defrag because "D" is full. Is there a way to copy "D" to "C" and just run the operating from the "C" drive?
The laptop contains only disk drive, no room for a 2nd drive. You have a 20Gb hard drive and it is partitioned as 2 drives.
You may be able to Ghost the D drive and put the disk image on the C drive, but it may work and boot up on the C drive..
Setting up a laptop is no different in setting up a desktop computer except a little bit more work is involved in installing the device drivers. The device drivers are specific for the version of Windows just like a desktop, but you need to download the drivers specific to your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site
Normally you would install the Windows operating system on the C drive together with the programs etc. and the D drive to hold your data files.
If you have installed Windows operating system on the D drive and the laptop bootup OK and you don't want to reinstall Windows on the C drive, then I would put the Swap Page file on the C drive. This should free up enought diskspace on the D drive to do a Disk Cleanup and a Defrag. I would also move your data files from the D drive to the C drive to give you more space on the D drive.
If it was me, I would re-install Windows on the C drive, together with the drivers and programs etc.
