Very likely the answer is yes, IF: 1) there is enough space and 2) that D drive is not being used for something else. Check on what is on the D drive. It's usually reserved by the manufacturer and contains OS restore files (used for restoring your system after a crash). Don't delete these, but if there is enough free space, just create a new folder and put your files in there.

I have an acer 5315 i have formatted the c drive not the d drive and i want instal windows 7 but it won't recognize the hard drive ti partition it


You can format it by right clicking on the drive, or type diskmgmt.msc in search. There you will have full access to deleting and creating partitions.

I have an acer 5315-2326 and I reformated the hard drive and tried to load windows 7 pro. It cant find the hard drive. I can load ubuntu but when I try to load windows 7 it says no hard drive found.How do...


I have seen hard drives where people had screwed around the partitions so bad that their computer would recognize it. I would recommend since Ubuntu can see it. Boot into a Ubuntu Live CD and delete any partition info so that it's a completely empty disc. Then try to use the Windows 7 DVD to install Windows. Comment back with your results.

I have two hard drives on my computer one is nearly full the other has on a few things on it, but i don't know how to transfer things from the full one to the empty one


Just simply copy any big folders you have on your full drive onto anywhere else on the empty one. Remember to start installing things to the empty one too. Right Click>Copy>Paste onto empty drive.

Start>Computer> You should see your two drives.

My Acer 5315-2826 is a very slow machine.......It takes forever to have any page open....and the worst part is that it was like this from the beginning..when the computer was just purchased...My C: drive...

If you are not sure how your C drive is full then you may want to check for Dr.Watson log file usually it creates a log file which eats up space on your hard drive.

Step 1: Click on start and then click on run.
Step 2: Type drwtsn32 and hit ok.
Step 3: copy the comple log file path and paste it in the run command again. hit ok.
Step 4: You will see a text file with .txt extension (usually that will be in GB).
Step 5: Select and delete it (its of no use for us).

Hi my acer aspire 5315 will not boot up, i turn it on i get nothing but the little cursor in the top right hand corner...can anyone help please thank u in advance


That is probably because some important boot files are missing. What you can try is to take out the hard drive and move it to another acer aspire 5315 computer. To take out the hard drive, remove ALL electrical components (power cable, battery, etc.), open the computer's hard drive bay, and take it out VERY carefully. Make sure you do not cut the cables. That could damage the hard drive. Then, you remove the hard drive on the other acer aspire 5315 computer using the same instructions above. Then, you can identify the missing boot files (they will be in a hidden drive called System Reserved), copy them onto your computer's hidden System Reserved drive (if it's missing you'll have to create one manually), and put it back in the other acer aspire 5315 computer. Make sure that you put the wires where they were when you removed them, otherwise the hard drive might not work. Then, try turning on the computer again.

I have a 60gb hard drive on acer aspire 3690 but

Cannot transfer files that are greater than 4GB


The lack of free space iis on your internal HD not the external. Whenever transferring files from one drive to another, you are acturally making a copy of the file to be transferred and sending the copy to the new drive. If your internal HD is nearly full, you can try to Cut and Paste the files to the external, or clear up more space on your internal b/4 tryiing to move the bigger files. Best of luck.

My C drive full


Hi

You can move anything except system files and user settings. Before proceed further I suggest you to perform "Disk Clean Up" which is a simple application under accessories.

You can put iTunes files to the other drive. All documents and media files as well can be transferred and they will work without problem. Please post if you need further assistance

Good Luck
