I have had an Evesham PC desktop computer since 2002. I use Windows XP. Is there any possibility of downloading Windows 8? Annie


You might need to upgrade a few hardware items first also you might upgrade to vista then windows 8
Creating a new partition on your hard drive gives your future version of Windows 8 a place to live on your drive.
Knowing exactly how much space the OS requires helps you determine how large to make your partition.
Size requirements don't tell the entire story on their own, though.
Other factors like drive type and additional storage help ensure you get the best Windows 8 experience where your hard drive is concerned.

Size Requirements

Both Windows 7 and Windows 8 have the same system requirement regarding hard drive space, so if your hard drive can handle Windows 7, Windows 8 shouldn't be a problem.
For 32-bit versions of the operating system, you'll need at least 16 GB of available disk space. The 64-bit version requires 20 GB.
Your partition will have to be at least one of these sizes, depending on your OS version.
The PC Advisor website warns that these are literally the bare minimum requirements, and using these figures leaves you hardly any space to save files and install apps or programs.
Size Recommendations
You'll get more out of Windows 8 if the operating system has enough free space for you to install your favorite programs and apps.
PC World calls this extra space "breathing room," suggesting you give your Windows 8 partition at least 30 to 40 GB.
If you're dual-booting with another operating system or you're accustomed to keeping excess data on a separate partition, 30 to 40 gigabytes should be fine.
If you'd rather have all your songs, videos and PC games on the same partition as the operating system, consider giving it substantially more space.
Solid State Drive
Windows 8 works on traditional hard drives with spinning disks, but it's optimized to run on a solid state drive.
If you've got an SSD, consider putting your Windows 8 partition on that drive.
While any operating system benefits from the speed increase an SSD brings, ARS Technica specifically recommends this drive type for Windows 8, saying the operating system's "tablet-esque feel and search-heavy usage model will be much better served by solid-state storage."
Other Requirements
Hard drive space is a crucial system requirement, but others are just as important.
Ensuring your computer meets the other requirements before partitioning your drive for Windows 8 saves trouble in case your computer can't handle the OS.
You'll need at least a 1 GHz processor that support PAE, SSE2 and NX.
Your computer has to have at least 1 GB of RAM for 32-bit Windows 8, or 2 GB for 64-bit.
Your graphics card must be at least a DirectX 9-capable card with a WDDM driver. Also, while you're formatting your drive, format the Windows 8 partition in the NTFS format.
Storage Spaces
Storage Spaces is a useful Windows 8 feature when you're working with multiple drives and partitions.
The tool enables you to group drives into one larger storage space so you don't have to constantly switch partitions and explore different drives.
For example, if you create a storage space between two 32 GB flash drives, you'd be able to access it as if it were one larger 64 GB drive.

WINDOWS WILL NOT RECOGNIZE MY 640 GB ONLY 600 GB


If you bought a 640 GB hard drive when the drive is formatted it will be slightly smaller then the size listed on the box.
This is caused by a difference between the size of a GB as defined by windows versus the maker of the drive. The drive manufacture assumes that 1 GB is 1000 MB, where as windows assumes it is 1024 MB.
If you carry these assumptions all the way down to the byte level you get:
640GB = 640000 MB = 6.4 * 10^8 KB = 6.4 * 10^11 bytes
this is the base storage size of the drive.
Then windows takes this number and does the same in reverse to get the number of GB is displays:
6.4 *10^11 bytes = 6.25 * 10^8 KB = 610351 MB = 596.1 GB
There is nothing wrong with the drive, it's just a different unit of measurement.

PC is not reading Cavalry external HDD anymore.


right click 'my computer'

click 'manage'

in the new window that appears look down the left side and you will see an entry called 'storage' the 3rd entry under this should be 'disk management' click on this

you should now see all the drives installed on the computer, choose the one you need and right click on it, then choose 'format' from the drop down list. follow any instructions.

If it does not format, then it could be a faulty drive, in which case return it to where you bought it.
