How to solve low disk space warning on my Windows 7 laptop?


It sounds like you have too much running in the start menu. If you go there you have to be careful what you stop from loading. Go to your start and left click. The search box at the bottom type msconfig Go to the startup tab. Anything like Adobe reader, Java, any toolbars, quicktime, realplayer or anything that doesn't need to start when you boot the computer uncheck the box on the left beside it. When you click apply and ok it will ask you to restart the computer. After you do a box will popup and you can check the box and click and you won't see it again. But like I said you can stop the wrong things there. If you don't feel comfortable trying it get someone you know who is tech savvy to help you. Anything Microsoft, Intel, or with your computer brand name needs to stay.

Is it ok to defragment my 2T goflex portable hard drive?


Yes. Defragmenting simply takes the pieces of empty space on the drive and groups them together. When you delete data from a drive or it is deleted as part of a program's function (such as deleting files only needed during installation) it leaves a blank space, but files are lined up on the drive. So if the files are like so:

2GB File ' 3 GB File ' 5.5 GB Free Space ' 1.5 GB File ' 4 GB Free Space

Then defragmenting would try to rearrange the files like so:

2 GB File ' 3 GB File ' 1.5 GB File ' 9.5 GB Free Space


So, in short, yes, it's okay to defragment your drive.

Hard drive space is being taken by unknown entity. HP mini 1000. Have read every blog. I cannot find what is taking my space and i want to remove it!


How do you know something is taking up space on your hard drive? What is your operating system? First thing you should do is check your waste basket. Is it full? Then check your cookies and temporary internet files. Delete all you do not need. Then if you go to your Windows Explorer, you can check the size of each file on you hard drive. Go to Local Disk C:. Open all folders by clicking on each + sign to the left of each folder. Then start at the top and work your way down checking each folder. You should see a folder that has a lot of files in it, or one large file, maybe a folder you do not recognize. Click on and delete the folder that is taking up to much space. If you delete any folders do not empty you waste basket until you are sure you did not delete anything you will need.

How can I recover deleted files


so long as the file has not been overwritten there are many utilties available free that will accomplish this. I have not made this mistake in awhile so i cannot tell you the best current program, but I have used this one before
http://ntfsundelete.com/ and it is quite nice. Keep in mind if you have continued to use the drive and the space that file occupied has since been overwritten you will not be able to recover it.

Just moving things to the trash or deleted files does not clear them from the disk drive.
Try empty trash or remove deleted files.

Hi!

You can try to format the flash drive first. Go to My Computer > Right click the flash drive and select Format. Once the format window opens, select Quick Format and click START. Please note that formatting your flash drive will wipe out all data.

I hope that helps.


Have a nice day!

Compress old files too large


It doesn't actually delete anything when you select Compress Old Files. It actually searches your hard drive and anything that hasn't been used for so many days (forgot how many). This is ok if you need more hard drive space but if you have enough space, you should not use this tool. It will severly slow down your computer while accessing those files. For information on how to disable this, go :

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;310312

If your laptop is slow it probably needs some maintenance like:

Removing Cookies.Temp files. TIF's with CCleaner
Installing ScrubXp to automatically remove such files.
Running Defragmenter in Safe Mode

Also, download and install WinPatrol,Ad-ware 2008 and SpyBlaster.
AVG Anti-virus is great protection against viruses and Trojans
Programs mentioned are free. Defragmenter is part of OS.
MyComputer,C:drive,Tools. defragmenter.
