Question about Computers & Internet
You see the red line on the drive when the space in the disk partition starts to become lo. In this situation you have to move the movable data to other disk partitions and use utilities like disk cleanup and Defrag etc. to clear up space.
Now since you have approach the error NTLDR missing which is almost irreversible or extremely difficult to reverse as my research has shown me, your previous Windows Vista is lost how ever there when you will reinstall Windows Vista there will most probably a folder in C; named as "Windows.old" which my contain your files from Windows you have lost.
You have to install a new Windows Vista from the beginning.
(1)Restart you computer and start pressing F2 and Del Keys on keyboard alternatively In some computer it is F2 and others it is Del. So we press both. Its one of both.
(2) You will enter setup of your computer and in the setup you have to look for Boot and underneath boot you will find Boot priority. Do not panic or be scared.Recognize your CD/DVD drive and bring it on to top of other devices such as Hard disk. Boot priority means that the computer will start from the CD/DVD reading it first than it will read from Hard disk(s) and other devices.
(3) Once you set the boot priority to CD/DVD drive just save changes and exist and the computer will reboot make sure you have the Vista DVD in your DVD drive.
(4)The computer will reboot and ask you if you want to boot from CD or DVD press any key.and Windows will start installing. You can create all your Partitions like C: and D: and you will be able to also format the disk partitions. Create and delete partitions to equally distribute data.
The Windows setup is very easy and step by step once you get your hands on it you do not need any book, notes or theory. Just read the instructions carefully and follow

Tips for a great answer:
Creating partitions on USB drives is useful for larger drives or for keeping data organized.
It also allows one drive to be used for multiple purposes, such as having a partition to store data that is accessed often and another partition for backup.
With the new ReadyBoost feature of Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems, as well as with various server operating systems, you can create a partition on many external drives to use for a virtual memory swap file location, speeding up the computer for many memory-intensive tasks or for systems that are short on RAM.
Back up any data currently located on the drive prior to creating, deleting or changing partition size or otherwise attempting to configure the USB drive.
Open "Computer Management" under the "Administrative Tools" section of the Control Panel. Click on "Disk Management" to display a list of drives and their current partitions.
Right-click on the drive and choose "Extend Volume" to make the partition larger using available space on the drive; "Shrink Volume" to reduce the size of the partition, freeing up space on the drive; or "Delete Partition" to remove all partition information and to create fresh partitions on the drive.
Right-click on the free space on the drive and choose "New Simple Volume" if the existing partition has been deleted.
Click "Next" and then enter the desired size of the first volume on this disk.
Choose to assign a drive letter, assign the partition to its own folder on an NTFS volume or not to assign a letter or assign the partition to a folder if the drive is going to be used on a different system.
Click "Next" to display the format dialog screen and choose to format the drive using the default settings.
Give the volume a name and click "Next" again to review all of the chosen settings.
Then click on "Finish" to begin the format process.
Repeat the partition creation steps for as many new partitions as are desired on the drive.
Hope this helps
