My Seagate ST3200822AS 200 GB Hard Drive appears to only have 13.6 GB of disk space


When you look at the hard drive make certain you can see all the files including Hidden files. I suspect you might have either back up files on it, or system files.
To show the files to do this (In Windows 7) by opening windows Explorer and going to where it says "organise" and clicking on it then selecting "folder and Search options".
Click view, then select "show hidden files, folders and drives.
PLUS
Deselect by clicking it - "Hide protected operating system files"
Windows will warn you but click apply.
Next when you look at that drive all files will be shown.
You can then select and delete the files you want to get rid of.
REMEMBER to return the two above options to there correct settings when you have done or you could delete files on the rest of you system you need.
Alternatively.....
It should be possible to wipe all these hidden files, by doing a reformat of the drive.

Computer says no disc space left


which means that your hard disk is full (or very near to). Decide which files you want to perhaps put on cds of dvds, then erase them from your hard disk to see if the situation improves.

Pc is very slow. and stops sometime . have 80% of HD space. 500some menory


Some computers can be slow or short of hard drive space for quite simple reasons.
Windows and other program hide temporary files in lots of different places
The best option is not always a program or utility and if you want to do as much as you can for FREE like I do then you have a few options.
 
 
1. First you need to be in windows explorer.
 
2. Click TOOLS and FOLDER OPTIONS
 
3. Now click the VIEW tab
 
4. Tick the Show Hidden Files And Folders option
Unpick Hide Protected Operating System Files (it may warn you but you can ignore it)
 
5. Click APPLY then OK
 
6. NOTE some files may not delete this is OK Also DO NOT DELETE the folder itself where mentioned for cleaning.
 
7. Using windows explorer go into the WINDOWS folder and look for a directory called TEMP (it is possible there may be more than one)
 
8. Select all the contents and delete them. Do the same for any other temp folder e.g. temp000
 
9. Now navigate to Documents and Settings
There are quite a few folders in here that can be cleaned up
 
10. Look for folders named "Local Settings" In there you will find more TEMP folders that can be cleaned out
 
11. Now look inside the Temporary Internet Files. Delete anything EXCEPT cookies. Otherwise passwords for some sites you have stored may need you to type the password again.
 
12. Do this for each user / profile you see.
 
13. Now check the C: drive itself and see if there are any Temp folders and clean those out too
 
To prevent accidental deletion of any files windows needs you should go back to step (4) and change the two settings back to their original
