Yes you can. Your OS needs to be Win XP Professional in this case and needs to be NTFS.
This is called 'Mount Drive'.
A Mounted Drive is a drive that is mapped to an empty folder on a volume that uses the NTFS file system. Mounted drives function as any other drives, but they are assigned drive paths instead of drive letters. When you view a mounted drive in Windows Explorer, it appears as a drive icon in the path in which it is mounted.

You can also use mounted drives when you need additional storage space on a volume. If you map a folder on that volume to another volume with available disk space (for example, 20 gigabytes), you extend the storage space of the volume by 20 gigabytes (GB).

This is how to.... loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');

  1. Click Start, click Run, and then type compmgmt.msc in the Open box.
  2. In the left pane, click Disk Management.
  3. Right-click the partition or volume that you want to mount, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  4. Click Add.
  5. Click Mount in the following empty NTFS folder (if it is not already selected), and then use one of the following steps:
    • Type the path to an empty folder on an NTFS volume, and then click OK.
    • Click Browse, locate the empty NTFS folder, click OK, and then click OK.
    • If you have not yet created an empty folder, click Browse, click New Folder to create an empty folder on an NTFS volume, type a name for the new folder (eg. Games), click OK, and then click OK.
  6. Quit the Disk Management snap-in
I hope this has helped.

How to cope with Laptop C partition low disk space error problem


Hi Belinda
Basically it is a good idea to use the "C" drive for the Operating System (Windows) and minimal 3rd party software.
Move all Movies, Music & Photo's to another drive. The "D" drive.
This can be internal or external depending on the computer.
An external 1 to 4 Terrabyte drive on the USB port is really useful actually... it is really mandatory these days to perform backups & keep the big files on. Like Movies & Music & Photos.
To give you long lasting capabilities into the future I would suggest something like this Dock Drive
http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/NewerTech/Voyager/Hard_Drive_Dock
You get to choose which drive to plug in and they can be stored securely (in tinfoil antistatic) when not in use.
The dock will allow you to keep a bootable emergency drive on one drive and a backup of all your movies on another and even a copy of all your music on another. This is my preferred method as it's future proof. if your computer gets broken or stolen then you still have a copy of everything. I prefer to use the 3.5 inch (larger) drive as they have faster access & backup capability. The 2.5" drives are great for portability & run on 5volts only so are not as fast. The dock can take either.
Hope this Helps

Status code 4174-0000-3080-0504-8007-000D


This is very simple: you seem to not have enough hard drive space for a system update that your console is trying to install.

Error 8007 0070 occurs when you install an update or buy content on...

(I've pasted some bullet points for you)

" Error 8007-0070 occurs when you install an update or buy content on Xbox 360
Problem
You may see the following error code and message when you try to update your Xbox 360 console or purchase content:
xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-8007-0070

Note
The "x" characters in the error code vary.
This may mean that there's not enough space on your storage device (mostly likely the Xbox 360 hard disk) to install the update or the content.

Solution
A console update or content download may require significant hard disk space. If you don't have enough free space, you need to move or delete some items."


You can probably get around this by using a 32gb USB thumb drive and moving some of your content that's hogging up your console's space onto that thumb drive temporarily.

Heres the Xbox.com info to get you started about moving and deleting hdd space--which also has info about using a USB thumb drive, too. Copy move or delete Xbox saved games profiles and avatar items

Hard disc space required


You need to free up some room on your computer. The game looks like it is requiring 39-40 gb of free disk space, and your pc only has 29gb of room. Try lookin at big hunks of media that is saved on your desktop. Normally video files are the largest. If you don't need them delete them. This will free up some space to install the software.

Hi my name is chris and I have a game that I bought last year and i am 11 years old. when i got this there was no scratches but when my family was moving and i was at school at that time my brothers were...


It is possible that your game is scratched up enough that you can't play it directly on your xbox 360... BUT you might still be able to play it is you can save it to your Xbox 360 hard drive. You might need to try it a few times to get it to read and work but try following these instructions for installing the game from your CD directly onto your Hard drive. You will still need to have the CD in your Xbox 360 to play but it will be reading from your hard drive if you can install it. Good luck:

To install a game on your hard drive loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

    bothconsolesopen.gif

    Note After you insert the disc, the default option is to automatically start the game. If this happens, exit the game and return to the Xbox Dashboard.
  2. From the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox.
  3. Select the game you want to install.
  4. Press the Y button on your controller.
  5. Select Install to Hard Drive.
  6. A progress indicator appears while your game is being installed on your hard drive.
Note Installing an Xbox 360 game might take 12 minutes.
To play a game from your hard drive loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.
  2. From the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox.
  3. Select the name of the game you want to play.
Note The game disc must be in the disc drive, even though you have installed the game on your hard drive. The console will automatically play the game from your hard drive, but the disc has to be present.
To delete a single game from your hard drive loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. Insert the game disc for the game you want to delete from your hard drive.
  2. Go to My Xbox, and then select the game you want to delete.
  3. Press the Y button on your controller.
  4. Select Delete from Hard Drive.
To delete multiple games from your hard drive loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. On your console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Memory.
  3. Select Hard Drive.
  4. Select Games.
  5. Select the game you want to delete.
  6. Select Delete.
To clear space on your hard drive loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If there is insufficient space on your Xbox 360 hard drive, you will receive the following message:
Not enough space to install this game. It needs [space needed] free space to install. Do you want to clear space? (YES/NO) Click YES to view a list of games that you can delete. After you clear enough space on your hard drive, you can install the new game.

Currently my 500 GB WD External Drive has 353GB as free space. But when I try and add a 6GB file I get the following message "Error Copying File or Folder Cannot copy filename: There is not enough free...


How many directory deep is the file going that you are trying to save? I believe the maximum NTFS file (location + name) of file length can not exceed 256 characters total.

Example: C:\user\documents\file.exe is OK

But: C:\user\documents\folder\folder\folder\folder\folder\this folder name 230 charicters long\file.exe BAD

Game installation problems


Maybe its because you don't have enough space. Free up some space before trying to install. Delete any old demos or video content. Also, delete any temporary game data using the Utilities from the game menu (be sure not to delete savedata unless you do not need it).

When i install windows xp i done it 2 times


What exactly do you mean? Well, you can always format the drive. This will delete everything on it, and then you can install Windows and start from scratch. But if you want to keep intact all your data and files, then you have the option of defragmenting the drive.
How to defragment: Go to "Start -> All Programs ->Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter". You can select the drive you want to defragment and press on "Defragment" button. Defragmenting helps you free up space
