Not possible...you'll need to back up that c drive, which is the default for all Windows programs..try a back up drive, or move some of those high density(music and image) files to a back up system

C drive is almost empty but d drive full


You might already have the setting where your backups will be saved in D drive and hence it is full now. You can now reset the settings and change it by C drive. By the way, C drive is by default the drive in which your OS and its related files are stored and nothing else.

My laptop is running very slow and from yesterday i cannot make call from skype or gtalk other person cannot hear my voice but i can hear his voice


1. Let your PC boot up completely before opening any applications.
2. Refresh the desktop after closing any application. This will remove any unused files from the RAM.
3. Do not set very large file size images as your wallpaper. Do not keep a wallpaper at all if your PC is low on RAM (less than 64 MB).

4. Do not clutter your Desktop with a lot of shortcuts. Each shortcut on the desktop uses up to 500 bytes of RAM
5.Empty the recycle bin regularly. The files are not really deleted from your hard drive until you empty the recycle bin.
6. Delete the temporary internet files regularly.
7. Defragment your hard drive once every two months. This will free up a lot of space on your hard drive and rearrange the files so that your applications run faster.
8. Always make two partitions in your hard drive. Install all large Softwares (like PSP, Photoshop, 3DS Max etc) in the second partition. Windows uses all the available empty space in C drive as virtual memory when your Computer RAM is full. Keep the C Drive as empty as possible.
9. When installing new Software

After installing SP3 my Asus 900 C drive is full (3.7 GB), even though my data and most programs are on the D drive, which has 6 GB free. Can some of the Windows folders be moved across? John


Do not move Windows folders across to your D drive it will cause Windows to stop working.
You can change the Virtual memory from the C drive to the D drive, this will free up disk space on the C drive.
To change the Virtual memory follow these steps. : -
Click on Control Panel - System - Advance tab - Performance and click on Settings box - then Advance tab - in Virtual Memory click on Change box. Then change the Virtual Memory from the C drive (remove it) and set it up on the D drive. Use the same amount of memory or more but not less. You need to reboot for this change to take place.

Memory low for unknown reason


when you reformated the drive you must not have deleted all partitions , otherwise you would have all the disc space minus the operating system , so check and make sure all partitions made were deleted and the full size of the disc is available for the new installation

Acer aspire 3610 with drive c(full) and drive d(empty)


Right click on My Documents and select Properties.
Select Move.
Navigate to your D: drive. Select the drive letter and then click "Make New Folder." Enter "My Documents" as the folder name and hit Enter and then OK. Windows will then ask you whether you want to move your documents. Click Yes.
All the space the My Documents folder was taking up on C: is now empty and you will notice no difference in the way you work. Anything that belongs in My Documents will now automatically go to My Documents on D:
Note: You may not want to do the next part if you need a lot of space for Pictures and Music.
To get even more space on C:, right click on My Computer and select Properties.
Click on the Advanced tab and then Settings in the Performance section.
In Performance Options click on the Advanced tab
In the Virtual Memory section click on Change
Select the D: drive and set it to be the same as the settings on C:
Now change the settings on C: to have a page file of 0
If you are someone who likes to keep old email on file, those files can also be moved.

put more ram in the laptop is the most economical solution at the moment, as it is so cheap.
your laptop can have 2 gig in total
other solutions that cost nothing
  • remove all unwanted software off the hard drive.( to make room for virtual memory)
  • empty recycle bin
  • run anti spy-ware software
  • defrag the hard drive
  • set virtual memory to 2 times physical ram
  • set performance settings to "adjust for best performance",go to device manager/advanced tab to do this
  • go to start/run ,type "msconfig" go to start up tab and deselect any software not needed at boot up,
  • leave anti virus,anti spy ware,and any firewall selected.
  • when you reboot a box will open saying you have been in making changes ,put a tick in the box at top right so it does not show again.

hope this helps you
please rate my efforts if worthy
good luck
