id recommend something like the above item, your pc will recognise this as a new hard drive and will assign it a letter in the my computer folder. You will have to move your items yourself unless you buy an automatic backup software program. Personally i think that would be a waste of money. Your windows installation will be less than 10Gb so you have a lot of other stuff on there, music pictures, movies etc. Its these things that you can move to this new drive, by dragging them from their folders into new folders on the new drive. this gives you a certain amount of backup just in case your machine needs resetting the files are separate, and the new drive can be unplugged and plugged into a new machine.

My local disk :c shows red?why?


Hi,
If you're using Windows 7 or 8 or Vista, that means that a lot of the disk has been used, and the left memory in the disk is low. Can you please provide me with the data of max space on the disk, used space and the remaining space. Thank you!

I purchased the Sylvania net book SNET06526 and would like to download and save some articles to read off line later. Would I have to buy a SD card or a Flash disk to save the information?


Hello Jeffrey - Absolutely not! Your netbook has a 30 GB hard drive and you can literally store thousands of articles and still have plenty of disk space left.

Enjoy your new PC and thank you for using Fix Ya.

Hard drive on my computer is reporting 75MB left on a 20 gig drive with only word and a couple smaller programs on it - someone please give me an idea.


Hi!

Let's see how much left on your hardisk and how much space that your programs used in your disk..do this..

Double click the "My Computer" icon
Right click on your "Local Disk (C:)" drive and click properties...
The blue color indicator will tell you how much space was used by your programs on your hardisk..
The pink color indicator will tell you how much free space left on your hardisk
The capacity value should be more or less 19 GB..
See if this capacity value match in your drive..

If the capacity value of your drive is below 10 GB then my guess is you have a wrong setting for your hardisk... Look physically in your hardisk. Between the port of ide cable and power supply connector you will see terminals with jumper on it.. The jumper is used to short the terminal. the function of the terminal is to assign the hardisk as slave, master, cable connector and or limit the capacity of the hardisk to some amount.. Check the label of the hardisk.. schematic diagram on it will explain where to put the jumper...

If the setting of the jumper was correct and the capacity value of your drive match to approximately 19 GB... then I suggest you browse the files on your drive. Check all its sizes.. There could be movies there that eats your space.

I hope I explained to you everything you need to know..

Much appreciated if you rate this help.. thanks

8mb vs 8gb of space on an 8gb flash drive


sounds like you upgraded it to a dynamic volume and are using the leftover space, flash drives should be left as basic disks and formatted fat 32.

Harddrive space problem.

Have tried a solution but there's still a problem


look first make habit of saving ur downloads to Drive D ok never save ur download s on drive Acer : C secondly let me tell u windows Vista is a bulky OS and it needs much space on hard drive thats why atleast 120 Gb is recommended for Vista it seems like u have an 80 gb hard drive Vista will work but it will take much of ur drive space as my Vista installation is around 39 GB now i dont know but it grows his size day by day thats why some ppl with less system resources go back to XP , u can free up more disk space by doing following:

go to http://www.ccleaner.com download ans install it run the cleaner and look for temp files that may be lying and occupying disk space.

2. Go to My Computer Right click on Acer C take properties click button Disk cleanup select files from all users let it scan ur hard drive and then it will present u with some temp files , hibernation files and thumbnail files and error reporting files check the boxes and perform the cleanup select all of them u will get some space press OK it will cleanup and delete these files and u will see some space freed up, in more options in the same windows u can also uninstall some progrmas on ur C drive which u installed and u no longerr want now u can un install them as well after that come out of it

3. Now go to My computer right click and take properties of Acer C now go to Tools Tab and select Defragment Now and select C drive and defrag ur drive this will take time after this correct free space will be visible to u after all cleaning steps

if u get enuff space u wanted then it is ok otherwise u can also take some space from the D drive and can merge into C drive if u want i can help u in that but i prefer changing ur hard drive as it is too small for a system like Vista , XP will give u no trouble on that drive


pls let me know and do rate me if i fixya problem

To free hard disk space


is the 100Gb divided into 2 partition?
since you have done the show all folder and files. and nothing else show up. you can do a defreg. to compress the drive. you may have lots of fragmented files. (that account for the lost space).
