HI,

The first thing is to do a disk cleanup.Go to START>PRROGRAMS>ACESORIES>SYSTEM TOOLS>DISK CLEANUP. Make sure you also clean all the system restore files.If you've taken a backup of your PC and you want to keep it then just ignore that part or else just go to the more options tab and select clean up under the system restore option in the disk cleanup.
If this doesnot fix the problem then:

there is a temporary file somewhere inside in the c-drive which is growing and eating up all your space. CLICK HERE to download the jam software.The run a scan with it it will tell which file is taking more space.Then just brows that file and delete it.

Goodluck..

Eee 1000XP 160 GB HDD is partitioned (C) healthy system, (D) healthy but empty. How do I expand (C) to use empty space, Tried XP right click, no joy, tried command prompt still no joy. Any ideas???


The most-simple method is for you to remember to write to the 'D:' drive, to use that existing space.

There exists commercial software, namely "PowerQuest Partition Magic", that can delete the 'D:' partition, turning the space into "free" disk-space, and then "expand" the 'C:' drive, to extend its upper-boundary to incorporate some/all of that free-space.

Or, leave it partitioned, but always write your files to 'D:'.
Then, if you ever need to reinstall Windows to 'C:',
then all your data files on 'D:' will _NOT_ be "touched" at all.

I have a freeagent go 500gb portable hard drive. Is it possible to divide it into two 250gb partitions?how?


yes it is possible. First you can use a partition software. The second is using the disk management tools, these are the steps.

1.To run Disk Management Tool, click on Start, right-click My Computer, and select Manage from the menu that appears. When you see the Computer Management window, click the Disk Management item listed underneath the Storage heading. You then see the main Disk Management pane in the right side of the Computer Management window.

2.Creating the partition: Unallocated space appears as an Unknown Partition in the Disk Management diagram, you can use it to create a new partition in some or all of the space. To create your new partition, you need to right-click on the part of the diagram that represents the unallocated space, the unallocated space has a black stripe running along the top and then choose the "New Partition" on the menu that appears. To create your new logical drive in an extended partition that has free space The free space has a light green strip along the top, right-click on the free space then choose New Logical Drive from the menu that appears. Now you will see the New Partition Wizard.


The Partition Wizard will asks you to specify the following:


1 The Type - Primary, extended, or logical partition. Your hard drive can contain up to four primary partitions, or three primary partitions and one extended partition. Choose the primary partition if you are created a partition in which you will install an operating system (this is unusual situation). Choose extended if you plan to create several logical partitions within it. The logical partition type is available only if you choose to create the new partition in an extended partition with some free space.


2 The Size - You may use the entire available space, or leave room for more partitions. The Partition Wizard will displays the minimum and maximum size for the partition, this is based on the space where it will be stored


3 The Drive letter or path - Two operating system on your computer. You may select any unused letter, but the wizard will offer the next available drive letter. To Mount in the following empty NTFS Folder, you need an NTFS partition with a drive letter on the same machine. You may select the "Do Not Assign A Drive Letter Or Drive Path" option, this will let Windows assign a letter later, usually the default drive letter.


4 The File system - The default is NTFS (recommended), but you can use FAT32 (not recommended) as well. Both NTFS and FAT32 will efficiently utilize disk space on large drives.
Note: NTFS has better security features, the better recovery capabilities after a major crash, and has file-level compression built in. NTFS will also give you the option of enable compression.


5 The Label - Type a name for the partition, name it something that will indicating what you will use it for, data files, my files, fatboy one, etc.

I hope this solution was helpful.

I try the diskpart on my vista but my disk list didnt appear can anyone help me please tnx


click windows logo>control panel>(click classic view on left) > administrative tools >computer management >disk management (on left)

here you will see the total space available in your HDD...the term unallocated says that those spaces in HDD are not utilized...usually there will be a 12MB or 9MB unallocated space for each drive and it may vary...if the unallocated space is in the range of GB you can right click on it and create a new partition with that...after creating the new partition you need to format it once inorder to use it....
thats it...have a good day...

Have 250Gb hard drive. Shows only 127Gb available. Used fdisk to remove and replace partition and reformat drive. No help. Drive is quiet running.


Since you have already posted you are running win xp.
for more info the drive limitations prior to win xp home/pro sp2 is 127 gb.
You can use a seperate partition program for full access to the drive with it being partitioned.
The only way around it is to have win xp home or pro with sp2 already included on the cd.

Low capacity problem


Hi,

Mostly this is affected by match used to construct the drive geometry. The narrative below is courtesy Tiger Direct of Canada and is their copyrighted content.

When we ask our customers if an Answer is satisfactory, the requested rating is four diamonds for a thorough answer. Hopefully, you will find the below content achieves that mark.
  1. The way size is calculated and displayed.
  2. Any "Partitions" on the disk will change the total in a specific partition.
  3. Hidden files and folders decrease available space.
  4. Compression increases the apparent size, but not the physical size.
  5. Drives larger than the OS or Drivers natively supports.
hddsizescreen.jpgFirst, the definition of a megabytes (or gigabytes) is a unit of data storage capacity measured in 1,048,576 bytes (or 1024KB). The larger the numbers, the more apparent the size difference will be when listing the size as megabytes (or gigabytes) versus bytes. Actually, both numbers are correct. The noticeable difference is due to the 1024KB definition of a megabyte. This is why a 95.3GB hard drive can also be listed as having 102 billion bytes of total space. Just think of it as "round off" In the screen shot at right: The first number is the total number of bytes, the second number is based on the number of megabytes or gigabytes.
Second, some computers have a non-DOS hard drive partition that is used for features such as Save to Disk, Hibernation, or Recovery. This partition is not normally reported by the operating system, although it can be viewed using a disk partition utility. This is very common on desktops and laptops. NOTE: Partition information will be created or formatted automatically during initial system setup and a system recovery.
Third, by default, all system files are hidden and cannot be seen. This may adversely affect the reporting of available hard drive space. You can set your Folder Options so you view system and hidden files and folders, but do be careful as changes to system files can adversely affect your system.
Fourth, if you turn on Compression for a drive, it will increase reported free space and used space, but since compression is based upon the actual contents, this number is not fixed, but will change as files are added or changed.
Fifth, older operating systems did not support some of today's larger drives, so the total space reported may be much smaller than the drive specifications.
It is also worth noting that bad sectors are corrected by your operating system and can change the total drive space, free space, or used space as well.
So as long as a drive is reporting a value approximately close to the specification value, you can be comfortable that you received the right drive and that you are getting to correct data storage. Of course, tuning of your drive's partitions and options can yield optimal values, but this is not something for the average user to explore.

HDD data recovery


most hard drives have that erie only 2 partitians at a time this is with your computer how it can handle since you made three particians there is a chance that it only allows partitions of only 2

say for instance you have a celeron your comp would only allow what you memmory can give you this would knock out the 2 partician when created the 3rd partician
not enough memmory to fill all 3 partitians

safe end to this particians in long run can hurt your comp more than help it i suggest buying another hdd to make your back ups or get a portable pull out system hdd this ensures your files are as easy to get as putting in a new hard drive
hope this gave some insite

Check the file system on your My Book. FAT32 has a file size limit of 4GB. I ran into the same problem when I tried to copy over a 4.5GB file from my laptop with NTFS on it. The file would not copy.
