Some back-up programs will over write. If they do you'll need to check the settings & turn that part on. If your does not, keep only the last three if you have the space.

How do i use a scandisk to backup all the files on my computer. Have never used one.


It would be impractical to backup everything that is on the computer as it will contain a lot of program files and unwanted junk that will take you more time to backup and wont work right.
You need to setup a backup for the important files that you need and save of the disk space on the scandisk as well.

Either you can do this manually for all the files you have or call 1-877-805-1027 for toll free help.

How to speed up your computer's performance?


Information: There are some few guidelines that you can follow to maintain your computer and keep it running smoothly.

Free Up Disk Space
By freeing disk space, you can improve the performance of your computer. The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space on your hard disk. The utility identifies files that you can safely delete, and then enables you to choose whether you want to delete some or all of the identified files.
Use Disk Cleanup to:

• Remove temporary Internet files.
• Remove downloaded program files (such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets).
• Empty the Recycle Bin.
• Remove Windows temporary files.
• Remove optional Windows components that you don't use.
• Remove installed programs that you no longer use.
Tip: Typically, temporary Internet files take the most amount of space because the browser caches each page you visit for faster access later.
To use Disk Cleanup

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup. If several drives are available, you might be prompted to specify which drive you want to clean.
Disk Cleanup calculates the amount of space you will be able to free.
2. In the Disk Cleanup for dialog box, scroll through the content of the Files to delete list.
Choose the files that you want to delete.
3. Clear the check boxes for files that you don't want to delete, and then click OK.
4. When prompted to confirm that you want to delete the specified files, click Yes.
After a few minutes, the process completes and the Disk Cleanup dialog box closes, leaving your computer cleaner and performing better.
Speed Up Access to Data
Disk fragmentation slows the overall performance of your system. When files are fragmented, the computer must search the hard disk when the file is opened to piece it back together. The response time can be significantly longer.
Disk Defragmenter is a Windows utility that consolidates fragmented files and folders on your computer's hard disk so that each occupies a single space on the disk. With your files stored neatly end-to-end, without fragmentation, reading and writing to the disk speeds up.
Run Disk Defragmenter
In addition to running Disk Defragmenter at regular intervals, optimally monthly, certain events warrant running the utility outside of the monthly rule of thumb.
You should run Disk Defragmenter under the following circumstances:
• You add a large number of files.
• Your free disk space nears 15 percent.
• You install new programs or a new version of Windows.

To use Disk Defragmenter:
1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Defragmenter.
Click Analyze to start the Disk Defragmenter.
2. In the Disk Defragmenter dialog box, click the drives that you want to defragment, and then click the Analyze button.
After the disk is analyzed, a dialog box appears, letting you know whether you should defragment the analyzed drives.
Tip: You should analyze a volume before defragmenting it to get an estimate of how long the defragmentation process will take.
3. To defragment the selected drive or drives, click the Defragment button.
After the defragmentation is complete, Disk Defragmenter displays the results.
4. To display detailed information about the defragmented disk or partition, click View Report.
5. To close the View Report dialog box, click Close.
6. To close the Disk Defragmenter utility, click the Close button on the title bar of the window.
Detect and Repair Disk Errors
In addition to running Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter to optimize the performance of your computer, you can check the integrity of the files stored on your hard disk by running the Error Checking utility.
As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors. Bad sectors slow down hard disk performance and sometimes make data writing (such as file saving) difficult, or even impossible. The Error Checking utility scans the hard drive for bad sectors, and scans for file system errors to see whether certain files or folders are misplaced.
If you use your computer daily, you should try to run this utility weekly to help prevent data loss.
To run the Error Checking utility:
Important: Be sure to close all files before running the Error-Checking utility.
1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
2. In the My Computer window, right-click the hard disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then click Properties.
3. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.
4. Click the Check Now button.
5. In the Check Disk dialog box, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
In most circumstances, select Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.
6. If bad sectors are found, choose to fix them.
Tip: Only select the Automatically fix file system errors check box if you think that your disk contains bad sectors.

Freeing up extra hard drive space


Are you out of hard drive space but can't find anything you'd like to remove from your computer?

Maybe you should try doing a Disk Cleanup.
Disk Cleanup will remove unnecessary files from your hard drive and if it hasn't been done on your system previously, free up a lot of space in the process.

To do a Disk Cleanup:

1) Go to My Computer.
2) Right click on your C drive.
3) Click Properties.
4) Click the "Disk Cleanup" button next to the visual representation of your hard drive space.
Disk Cleanup will calculate how much space you can free up and
what should be removed.
5) Under "Files to delete" select any files you don't want or need.
Generally all of the tabs can be selected and none of the files are
needed by your system. Below on "Description" you can view what
the files listed under each tab are for.
6) Once you have selected all of the files you want to remove click OK.
7) Disk Cleanup will remove the files from your system.
Disk Cleanup is complete.

I don't have recovery partition


follow this step and do it. God bless you

  • To create a partition from a new or newly formatted computer, make sure Windows is installed. Load any programs and drivers you would like to keep in case you need to back up to a previous version of your computer's settings.

  • 2

    Install your partition creation software; in this article we will use Norton Ghost. Before creating your partition, disable any anti virus and other scanning software.


  • 3

    Create your partition by going to your ms-dos prompt: from your Start menu, press "Run," and type "cmd" without quotations in the run dialog box. At the dos prompt, type "fdisk" without quotations, and choose option 1 (Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive). Set the partition size to 10 GB at press enter.

  • 4

    Open Norton Ghost and follow the instructions to create a recovery partition in the new partition you had just created. The process should take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the size of the files you are going to back up.

  • 5

    Restart your computer. When done, open Norton Ghost to verify that the Recovery Partition was created.

    NEED TO KNOW HOW I CAN PREVENT BACKUP FILES FROM GOING INTO MY RECOVERY(D), AND FILLING IT UP. I AM RECEIVING MESSAGE THAT I HAVE LOW DISK SPACE IN RECOVERY DISK. HOW DO I FREE UP THIS SPACE, AND HOW


    Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.

    1. Click Start c01508537.gif and right-click Computer .
    2. Select Properties .
    3. Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
    4. In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window. Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
      c01556005.jpg
    5. Right-click Start Explore All Users .
    6. Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
      1. From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
      2. From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
      3. Select the View tab.
      4. Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
    7. From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
    8. If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
    9. If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
    10. Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
      CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
      Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
      To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
    11. Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
    12. To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
      1. From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
      2. Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
      3. Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
      4. Click OK .
    13. Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.

    Local Disk C running out of space but the D drive has plenty of space. How to make the D drive the primary partition? Os in on C drive windows Vista.


    Do you run Disk Cleanup regularly (once a month)? This will free up disk space on the C drive, it remover old temporary files and compressed files as well as other files.
    You can also move and save your data files to the D drive, so the C drive has only the operating system files and program files.

    I have a Compaq Presario F700 laptop. It was telling me I have low disk space on Presario_RD (D). I have already deleted alot files and programs and I have also did a disk cleanup and ran the disk...


    "low disk space on Presario_RD (D)"
    This looks like you are running low on disk space on your D: drive, not your C:. If you were deleting files and programs, I bet it was on C:
    It is now very common for manufacturers to split the hard drive into 2 partitions, C: for everyday use and a smaller D: partition that hold recovery files to restore the computer to a factory install state. If your computer was set up this way, the D: is not suppose to be used but I have run into systems were backup programs are putting the backup files on D: and filling it up.
    You need to find out what is writing to D: and stop it and then remove the files it placed there.
    Be very careful with D:, if you remove the wrong files you may not be able to reinstall windows if you have a serious problem unless you have created recovery CDs.
