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.

    You can right click start and select explore. This should open the windows explore window that shows all of your of your drives and files. If you have a lot of pictures and/or music right mouse click your pictures folder or music folder and select copy. Go to the icon for your external hard drive in windows explore ( usually by scrolling down the right hand column. Right mouse click the icon and select paste. This should copy those folers to the drive. One you determine that the files have transferred (your pictures and music show on the external hard drive, you can return to the original folders and open them and select select all from the edit menu, this will highlight everything in the folder, then select file and choose delete. This should clear room on your internal disk drive.

Laptop C partition low disk space


Make sure your hard disk has enough space. Most often when the error massage comes it will tell you how much free space is required to install the game look keenly and know how much space is required then either move all media files mainly video files especially downloaded in the download folder to an alternative partition and only leave windows and installed program on Local Disk C. Other wise if your hard disk capacity is very small then am afraid that you will have to get a bigger hard disk.

How to cope with Laptop C partition low disk space error problem


Hi Belinda
Basically it is a good idea to use the "C" drive for the Operating System (Windows) and minimal 3rd party software.
Move all Movies, Music & Photo's to another drive. The "D" drive.
This can be internal or external depending on the computer.
An external 1 to 4 Terrabyte drive on the USB port is really useful actually... it is really mandatory these days to perform backups & keep the big files on. Like Movies & Music & Photos.
To give you long lasting capabilities into the future I would suggest something like this Dock Drive
http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/NewerTech/Voyager/Hard_Drive_Dock
You get to choose which drive to plug in and they can be stored securely (in tinfoil antistatic) when not in use.
The dock will allow you to keep a bootable emergency drive on one drive and a backup of all your movies on another and even a copy of all your music on another. This is my preferred method as it's future proof. if your computer gets broken or stolen then you still have a copy of everything. I prefer to use the 3.5 inch (larger) drive as they have faster access & backup capability. The 2.5" drives are great for portability & run on 5volts only so are not as fast. The dock can take either.
Hope this Helps

Low format free software win7


There shouldn't be a need to do a low level format on a drive. Just use the built-in format in windows. If you really need one though, download the hiren boot cd and burn the iso to a disc. It has several low level format tools.

My acer netbook "D" drive is nearly full


Hello,

Go to your drive C:, right-click, scroll down to "properties".

An option will pop-out. Look towards the down part and select Compress...... Then click "this"< then "OK".

This will compress your hard-drive and give you more space.

I hope you understand this.

Good luck.

Why does my laptop show low disc space?


Hello

The low disc space message refers to the amount of free disc space on your c drive. The c drive is the drive on which your windows is installed, thus yu need to delete some games or not neccesary files to free up some space on your drive. Hope this can help you.

Kind regards

Low disk space and I did clear files.


Low disc space really means nothing, but low disc space.

I understand you have cleared your files, but your going to have to remove more....if you have excessive music, pictures, and videos...try backing them up to a DVD or flash drive, then deleting them off of the computer.

If you cannot seem to clear anymore space the next thing to do would be purchasing an external hard drive. This way you can save files on that drive while not adding anymore to the current drive. You can view some external hard drives here

Low disc space


That means that your hard drive is full and it would be best if you transfer some or delete some files.
