Hmmm..well..this is not going to make you happy. Just did one of those myself, and had to re format the drive. You need at least 15% space to move around on a drive, and this one is most likely a virtual drive(carved out from C)..so, right click on it, and select format.

ALL your data is lost. Only other thing you might try is a remote backup of that drive.

D: is full.How to make it free.


30GB is nothing now a days. It may be time to expand, with an external USB drive. You can now get drives for as low as .10 cents per GB. Meaning a 500GB is around $50 bucks. A nice one with no external power more like .15 a GB making 500GB about $75.

Not the answer you were looking for, but there it is...

My Dell laptop Recovery(D) is almost full. 418 MB free of 9.99 GB. It includes a file "MedicalD.bin" which I question.


Delete the Media.Bin file and check whether that gets the free space for u...the same file will not show u huge file size(infact its small),but causes this problem..Otherwise disable the System restore option and enable it...this will help in deleting the restore points which would actually occupy a lot of space and thats the reason why the D drive is FULL now...To disable and enable the system restore ..follow this link and follow the same steps to ENable it back again.

Try the disk cleanup in the disk properties (right click the disk icon).
You can really free up a lot of space by deleting temp files, memory dump files and all restore point but the last. The last thing you only want to do if your system is running stable of course.
Also make sure to defrag after disk cleanup to maximize the efficient use of the free space.

My C drive is full how to increase its memory?


The best way is to uninstall any software you are not using. You can also run a "Disk Clean-up" by going to Start/All Programs/Accessories/ System Tools and then Disk Cleanup.

I would not mess with your recovery drive, it is set up just for your laptop recovery and should not be used, or altered for anything else.

8 percnt freespace left on hard drive,desperately needs too d-frag


Good morning, doctor-e!
When you get the HDD this full, you will normally experience issues like you mentioned.
Without knowing what you have on this drive, I can only offer the following suggestions:

1-remove any old files, programs or clutter that you don't have any further use for.
2-If you have large amounts of audio and/or video files, back them up to a CD, then remove them from the disk.
3-Buy yourself a bigger drive. (An early Christmas present?)

Basically, you are going to have to clear up some space on your existing drive. The system uses the available clear space on the HDD for swapping files, running the programs and so forth. As the free space gets limited, the system will start having trouble finding enough space to do it's thing.

If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating. If this information has answered your question and/or lead to a resolution, please rate it as "Fixya!".
Thank you, and have a super day!
