Despite uninstalling programs from the C drive on my Acer Aspire 1352XC and using disc cleaner, I keep getting notices that I'm at the limit of acceptable free space on the drive. Regards, Julian Gillespie

    I uninstalled with the add/remove programs. I have 8.84GB total capacity with 8.81GB used and
    and 242MB free. Sorry but I don't understand the meaning of partition.

Chances are there are other files especially on the registry that needs to be deleted, how did you uninstall software? did you remove it from add/remove programs? the best way to uninstall applications or programs is by uninstalling from add/remove programs, or you can use the uninstaller for the programs that you loaded on your computer, if issue persist you can reformat your harddrive but make sure you create backup files for important files that you have.

    How many Gigs do you have on your HDD? How many free space and used space? Is it on partition?

    Partition is if you divided the HDD memory in two drives, seems what you have is an old HDD, suggestion is for you to upgrade your HDD to a larger capacity in which your computer can handle. But these low capacity HDD i think are obsolete already. You can remove files from registry and temp folders if you want to free the memory of your HD.

    It's a free program that will scan your drive and show you the largest files. If you have some big files that are taking up lots of space, this program will help you find and delete them to free up more space.

    If you've already deleted everything you can, then it sounds like you've simply outgrown the space on your hard drive. You should buy a USB drive and start archiving data on this second drive, to free up space for your computer to use on the internal drive.

    When you do a Disk cleanup you can go to more options tab and then choose clean up under system restore and shadow copies.You will recover a large amount of space but you will loose your last saved restore point.If you don't need that then please go ahead.And you can also use the tree size software but use that only if you have XP not VISTA.

Check your hard drive, run a diagnostic. You may be able to boot into safe mode. Turn on the system and keep hitting the F8 key immediately. If that doesn't do it then try to reinstall the operating system. You may have a currupted Boot.ini or load manager. Lastly if you recently installed any device or program uninstall it. Good Luck

Need help freeing up disc space


Fragmentation of your hard disk will limit the amount of room reported on your HDD so a simple defrag could help. If you wish to free up disk space after doing a defrag and it still reports the same amount of room on your HDD you can use your add/remove and uninstalling any programs, games etc that are not used or used very little. If you are becoming limited on space due to windows updates etc then it maybe time to get a larger HDD and transfer all files and settings using transfer wizard to the new drive and then keep the old drive as a slave for extra storage. If you have done this and you still are very limited in HDD room then adding more space with another drive will increase it further but remember anything that has to do with windows or main programs such as office etc will all be stored to your main drive. I hope this helps.

Hi! Try uninstalling and reinstalling the program you are using. If this doesn't work I assume your pc might be infected by a malware.
You may scan your pc with combofix. Just copy+paste the link below your browser to download combofix.

After doing this, you may try to scan your pc for viruses. You can download a free antivirus from here: www.freeav.com.
Then try to reinstall your program again.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya, have a nice day!

Acer aspire lens week


if the dvd drive doesn't read the discs as it used to, first try a lens cleaner cd or dvd on it, or you can clean the lens yourself for that use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to gently wipe the lens.Just a quick scrub will do. Dry the laser lens with the otherend of the swab

let it be for a moment, put the drive back togehter and turn the computer on and test it.

if that its still not solved and you have the tools, will and want to attempt fixing the drive yourself then open the drive up and use canned air to clean it, follow these steps.
