Pop up box says no available space o GB?


Click Start, then Computer. If it shows no (or very little) free space on C:, you are truly out of room and need to delete or move some files to another hard drive (external hard drives are good for this). To operate efficiently, a good rule of thumb is to have at least 20% of your hard drive free.

How to Maximize and Fix the Size of Your Windows Swapfile


<b> <br /></b> Whenever Windows needs more memory than the RAM that you have installed, it uses some of your hard drive space as memory. This memory is referred to as virtual memory, and the space it uses on the hard drive is called the Swapfile.<br /> At the time Microsoft incorporated the Swapfile concept into Windows, hard drive space was at a premium. We were referring to hard drive sizes in megabytes, not in terrabybes as we do today. <br /> According, Microsoft allowed windows to dynamially change the size of the Swapfile (between pre-determined minimum and maximum values) proportional to real-time system memory requirements. This method insured that the "premium" hard drive space would be not be used by the system when there were minimal or no virtual memory requirements.<br /> However, there is some overhead involved with this method of determining Swapfile size as Windows has to continuously allocate and de-allocate hard drive space for use by the Swapfile. Considering the size of today's hard drives, we frequently find 30 or more Gigabytes of hard drive space available (especially on today's home computers). And Swapfile requirements are usually between 1 Mb. And 1 Gb. (1 Gb. = 1,000 Mb.). <br /> Considering the above, if you have an extra 10 or 20 Gb. of available hard drive space, why not set the minimum and maximum values of your Swapfile size to be equal, and relieve Windows of the task of managing your Swapfile size?<br /> To do this, perform the following procedure in Windows XP:<br /> NOTE: This procedure will be somewhat different for other operating systems.<br /> Click on START, and then CONTROL PANEL.<br /> Set contol panel to the "classic mode"<br /> Double click on SYSTEM. And in the Systems Properties box, click on ADVANCED<br /> In the Performance Box click on SETTINGS and then click on ADVANCED<br /> In the virtual memory box click on CHANGE<br /> NOTE: If you have more that 1 drive (volume), all will be listed. Only change the swapfile setting for the volume that presently contains the swapfile.<br /> In the virtual memory dialog box, click on the SWAPFILE DRIVE and click on CUSTOM SIZE.<br /> The initial and maximum sizes of the Swapfile will now be highlighted.<br /> The maximum size should be less than 20% of the available space (listed above the swapfile sizes). If it is not, you may not want to apply this procedure as your hard drive free space is somewhat limited.<br /> To continue, click on the INITIAL SIZE box and change the size to be the same as the size contained in the MAXIMUM SIZE box. Then click on SET and then OK.<br /> Close all dialog boxes and re-boot your computer.<br /> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm trying to increase hard disk space on a Dell


Hi.

The Dell Inspiron 1100 is a laptop whereas the Dell Dimension 2400 is a desktop pc.

The hard drives are incompatible because they are a different size, plus the Inspiron only supports one hard drive so you can't install a slave device. The only way to increase hard disk space is to buy a large capacity internal IDE laptop drive or an external hard drive.



Regards.

Adding more hard space


If you are running out of hard disk space you need to do disk maintenance to recover lost disk space.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions :-
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559146-hard_disk_maintenance

If you still need more disk space you can add another hard disk to your computer as a slave hard drive. You can move your data to this new hard drive and free up disk space on your C Drive.

Get space back on your hard drives! / Reclaim missing space


If your drive is nearly full and you can't work out where the space has gone, heres 2 things you can do about it.

1. Turn off System Restore

System Restore is a nice feature built into Windows that allows you to "go back in time" in case something bad happens. However, it takes up a LOT of disk space. You can turn it off (or at least turn down the space it takes up) by doing the following:

--On Windows XP--

Right click "My Computer"
Properties
System Restore tab
Tick "Turn off System Restore" and press Apply to turn it off and reclaim your disk space
OR Drag the slider all the way to the left to REDUCE the amount of space it takes up (and the number of "restore points" it creates).

--On Windows Vista--

Right click "My Computer"
Properties
on the left hand side click on "System Protection"
Wait for it to load, then uncheck all the drives you want to turn System Restore off on those drives.
Hit Apply or Ok.

Done! You just got some space back.

Note that System Restore isn't a critical feature to recovering from a computer problem, though it may help / save some time. If you wish to keep it on, you may wish to consider "turning it down" as described above to reclaim drive space.

2. TreeSizeFree

TreeSizeFree is a completely free software that lets you find out WHICH folders are taking up all the space on your hard drives. Its very simple to use and very small (theres even a portable version which requires no installation), just press Scan->Select the hard drives you want to check, wait a few minutes, and you'll know exactly how your hard drive space is distributed.

TreeSizeFree can be downloaded at:

Very low disc space


In order for your laptop to properly operate you should keep at least 10% of your hard disk drive free, as this space is needed for your computer to properly operate. Move some of your current files to the external hard drive and remove them from the mail drive, then defraf drive and you should have smooth sailing.

Hard drive keeps losing space lol


Are you surfing the internet a lot?  You may be getting a lot of temporary files.  Here is something to try.  In internet explorer go to tools / internet options / delete cookies, delete files (all offline contect) and clear history.  This should help some.  You are always going to go down in space.  Windows updates automatically on a regular basis.  This will cause a decrease in available hard drive space.
