The "D" drive is most likely where backups are being stored abd re-written. If that is not the case and you are using the drive for files storage from the main "C" drive, then you have to decide which files you can either move back to "C" or move them to an external drive which is what I do. If these are not Backup files, then attach an external drive or a flash drive and move the files you want, to the flash / external....just cut and paste the files over, that will free the space up. 16 GB drives are on sale on the web and in computer retail stores. I just purchased a Sony 16GB flash drive on Newegg.com for 34.00 bucks. With newer computers, flash drives can also be used to store your backups instead of a "D" drive, just go to backup settings and change the location of the saved files to an installed flash drive, then when a backup is scheduled or unscheduled, you jusr slip the drive into place, run the backup and that's it.

No Image after scanning using canon 8000f Windows XP. Can a nearly full hard disk cause this?


I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion to you.

Yes a full hard drive can stop the image from being saved to the hard drive but the scanner should still scan the image but not be able to save it to your drive. When you say nearly full hard drive you need some room to save images so if you can try and make some room for these images. Try scanning in preview first that should show you your image without saving it.

I hope this helps you out.

Hello,
if the Hard Drive is full you need to remove some software or any large file from the computer to free up some space on the Hard Drive , may want to buy another hard drive or get an External hard Drive to help with the space problem .

My drive is full so it won't back up anymore!


Check the backup settings in the software that came with the device. You may be saving every backup instead of saving incrementally. An incremental backup will back up the files that have changed after doing one full backup.
You can also view the files on the drive through Windows Explorer.
The files should be dated. Delete the oldest files making sure that they seem to be the same size as the next oldest file.
If your computer is not faulty, and the files on the backup are not the only place that they are copied, you can start over with the backup drive, change the backup settings and create an incremental backup routine.
Depending on the size in Gigabytes of the backup drive, you are limited to the amount of data you can back up.
Example:
If you have a 500Gigabyte drive in your computer and the external backup drive is 250 Gigabytes,a full system backup will not fit.
Go to Windows Explorer, Click on My Computer and view the available space and total size for each drive.

If you need more help, Use Fixya's new Phone Call Service. For $29.99 an expert will walk you through the setup and drive check.

Still shows about half full when empty


Try doing a full format of the drive. (Right-click on drive => Click format).

If you have the option format using the NTFS file system (default in vista/windows 7) and make sure to uncheck "Quick Format". Remember to back-up your data on the drive beforehand.

If this doesn't solve your problem the flashdrive itself may be faulty. Return it and have it replaced.

Hope this helps,

I have a sony vaio laptop with seemingly two internal hardrives but one is very full and the other virtually empty but i don't seem to be able to move stuff across to balance it? I keep getting a message...


you probably only have one hard drive ,it may have two primary partitions ,look closely at the d drive,even though the pie graph says is empty ,the physicall size in mb,kb,gb,could be small,so basically your moving things on your full "c" drive to a small partition on your full "c"drive labeled" d "drive,if this is not the case,go to controll panel/system/,device manager ,and observe hard disk properties,if you have two hard drives,you will see two hard drives listed,usually the cd-rom takes the "d" drive position,and an extra hard drive will be your"E"drive,but a single drive with two primary partitions,forces the cd-rom to be "e"drive,this configuration often causes problems with cd/dvd-rom drives,just a side note ,in case it applies to your situation,hope this helps,post a comment if you need more help,aloha from maui todd0708

Saying that the drive is full when there is nothing on it.


I had a similar problem once. If you have deleted files from the external hard drive, you need to empty the trash while the drive is still plugged in. Otherwise, they will still take up memory on your drive.

Hope this helps!

My d drive is full


Hello caliandrew88,
Having a full D Drive will not cause Vista to crash. If you need to free up space then get an external hard drive to move files off of your machine.
