Re: Lossing space on my disc C

Also, if you have more than one drive letter assigned to just one physical hard drive, try moving the windows swap file to one of the other drive letters. By default this large file ends up on the C drive, but it can be moved to any other drive. I forget the exact steps, which will vary by operating system, but the capability will be under a "performance" tab and then probabry hiding behind and "advanced" button.

This means your Harddrive(HDD) is nearly full with files and there is no more room to save/work on the harddrive.
You will have to delete some saved files or to uninstall some programs that you are not using anymore, this will create some free space on your HDD. Also do a right click on the Recycle bin/Empty recycle bin and it wil clear some space... If you need more help, let me know, I am happy to help you...

My D: drive is 99% full how do I free up disk space ?

Music, video and pictures use the most hard drive space. Store them on a disc or on line storage site. After the delete or removing as advised, defrag you hard drive. This should free up space. Get rid of any programs you don't use. As long as you don't delete hidden files you should be fine. Hope this helps. If you are using windows XP go to start, control panel add and remove programs and delete only the programs that you installed and remove only them.

Not enought disk space

You will need to find out what is taking up the space. Pictures, games, or pther programs.

Check to make sure that the there are no items in the Recycled Items bin (the waste basket on the desktop). In Internet Explorer go to tools\internet options and delete all temporary internet files, these do not get automatically deleted.

Go to control panel and choose add\remove programs. Are there programs in there that you no longer use?

Do you have loads of pictures on your computer? Can you transfer them to a CD, this way you can delete the pictures on your hard drive.
