Cut some contents from drive d and paste it into any other drive or if you have some data that you dont need very often then you can save it in some external drive i.e pen drive or dvd's.

Laptop C partition low disk space


Make sure your hard disk has enough space. Most often when the error massage comes it will tell you how much free space is required to install the game look keenly and know how much space is required then either move all media files mainly video files especially downloaded in the download folder to an alternative partition and only leave windows and installed program on Local Disk C. Other wise if your hard disk capacity is very small then am afraid that you will have to get a bigger hard disk.

NEED TO KNOW HOW I CAN PREVENT BACKUP FILES FROM GOING INTO MY RECOVERY(D), AND FILLING IT UP. I AM RECEIVING MESSAGE THAT I HAVE LOW DISK SPACE IN RECOVERY DISK. HOW DO I FREE UP THIS SPACE, AND HOW


Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.

  1. Click Start c01508537.gif and right-click Computer .
  2. Select Properties .
  3. Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
  4. In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window. Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
    c01556005.jpg
  5. Right-click Start Explore All Users .
  6. Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
    2. From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select the View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
  7. From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
  8. If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
  9. If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
  10. Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
    CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
    Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
    To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
  11. Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
  12. To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
    2. Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
    4. Click OK .
  13. Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.

My hard drive is frozen and I can't reboot from system recovery disk. I get a message saying insufficient space, delete items from hard drive to continue.


This happens when you have too many files on the C drive and windows can not operate anymore...I suggest to eliminate the files you keep in my documents ..or on desktop ..I am referring on large files like music folders..or movies or pictures..Juts delete a few first which are not important to you ..and after that save all you need into drive D if you have ..or on disks ..Once the C drive is cleaned a little ..and you have a few G free you will be able to operate the pc again ..
If you are already beyond this operation and you can not make any move at all..click that balloon that says it will free some space by deleting the temporary files and all..and after that it will let you delete or move more files..
If you already can not make these moves...you will have to recover it from the recovery disk ..or install it from a boot-able cd with the operation system ..Make sure your recovery cd is containing the operation system ..cause some of them need a clean install of the system and they only contain the drivers and the software..for it ..So you will still need a boot-able cd first to install the operation system clean ..
let me knwo what you have managed to do ..The idea is to free space on C drive cause it is the active drive and need to be at least 20 % free spaced in order to work proper..

Free victim of software counterfeiting


Microsoft, in a rather brilliant move, has released an update that checks your OS serial against a list of known leaked serials (corporate edition keys, etc). If your serial matches one of them then it puts a darling little message on the bottom right hand of your login screen, and also a system tray icon that nags you to buy a genuine copy of windows.
It will also pop up a dialog that says "This copy of Windows is not Genuine"
"This copy of Windows is not genuine and you have not yet resolved this issue. This computer is no longer eligible to recieve select security upgrades from Microsoft.

To protect your copy of Windows, you must click Get Genuine now."
Every so often a little balloon will pop up that says "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting." Below that it will say "This copy of Windows is not genuine. Click this balloon to resolve now." If you're working on a system that has this running it gets annoying in a hurry. What the time interval between pop-ups is, I don't know, but I imagine it'll drive most people to buy a legit key after a while just to get the thing to *******.
Fixing the popup is easy enough.
Reboot to safe mode. Open up

http://www.eradicatespyware.net/How_To_Use_HijackThis.html
and scroll down to the selection that says "020 - Winlogon Nofity: Wgalogon - ..." select that, and click fix checked.
You can also go and delete the actual executable that nags you. The full path to it should be (for most installs) C:\Windows\System32\wgatray.exe.
Reboot after this. No longer should you get the popups and that nagger as you log in should not show up either

Virtual memory low, not sure how much I have got and what I can upgrade to? My desktop ser no is 11419107876?


I assume that you got a little balloon in the
bottom right-hand corner announcing that your
virtual memory is low and that Windows is
adjusting it. If this happens just once, don't
worry.

As the message said, Windows found a problem
and fixed it. But if it happens repeatedly,
it could be that your settings don't allow
Windows to make the necessary adjustment.

First, make sure your drive isn't overly full.
In Windows Explorer, right-click the drive
icon and choose Properties.
If the amount of free space is under about
10 percent, you'll need to free up some space.
You can use the Disk Cleanup button right next
to the free space indicator, or manually move
some files to off-line storage,
or uninstall unnecessary applications whatever
it takes to get more free space.

If low drive space isn't the problem, the
virtual-memory settings may be wrong.
Right-click My Computer and choose
Properties. Click the Advanced tab.
Click the Settings button in the
Performance panel.

Click the Advanced tab in the Performance dialog.
Click the Change button in the Virtual
memory panel. Whew! This setting is buried
quite thoroughly!
Look for the System managed size option,
select it if it isn't already selected,
and then click OK, OK, OK. That should end the
warnings.

I have a acer aspire 5050 laptop/notebook and everytime I try to watch a video on youtube or just serach the internet, it's slow and the wors, "low on disk space" pop up. I click the clean disk...


Acer partition thir drives as standard install.....open my computer and you should see a C drive and drive called data (probably E drive)...when the C drive is low on space windows doesn´t have enough room for a swap file and really slows up......move some of your less used files from My Documents to the Data drive by cuttting and pasting......Make sure you leave at least 700mb free on your C drive so windows can work normally
Also go into internet options in control panel in the general tab under browsing history click setting....where it says disk space to use lower the value to around 300mb....click ok and close window....this should free up a bit more disk space

MY COMPUTER KEEPS TELLING ME IT HAS A PROBLEM


It sounds like you have been storing files on the Recovery partition (D:) instead of your C: drive. You should not do that. The Recovery partition should just that. If you need more space consider a USB external hard drive.

I have a Compaq Presario F700 laptop. It was telling me I have low disk space on Presario_RD (D). I have already deleted alot files and programs and I have also did a disk cleanup and ran the disk...


"low disk space on Presario_RD (D)"
This looks like you are running low on disk space on your D: drive, not your C:. If you were deleting files and programs, I bet it was on C:
It is now very common for manufacturers to split the hard drive into 2 partitions, C: for everyday use and a smaller D: partition that hold recovery files to restore the computer to a factory install state. If your computer was set up this way, the D: is not suppose to be used but I have run into systems were backup programs are putting the backup files on D: and filling it up.
You need to find out what is writing to D: and stop it and then remove the files it placed there.
Be very careful with D:, if you remove the wrong files you may not be able to reinstall windows if you have a serious problem unless you have created recovery CDs.

My computer is displaying a message about the recovery disk is running out of space, I have cleaned it and it is still displaying this message, what shall I do?


Sometimes manufactures make the recovery partition so small that windows sees it as low space hard drive, it is annoying, as you arn't even supposed to save data to it anyway (it is reserved for emergency recovery) your best bet is to turn off windows disk monitoring, the only trade off is that if you C: drive gets full, windows won't warn you (but you should be able to monitor it on your own anyway.

goto START then RUN and type REGEDIT.EXE and push enter

Navigate to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer

If it's not there, create a DWORD value and call it NoLowDiskSpaceChecks.

Double-click on NoLowDiskSpaceChecks, and enter the value 1, and press OK.

BE CAREFUL IN THE REGISTRY!! AS YOU CAN CORRUPT YOUR ENTIRE WINDOWS INSTALL!

DO THIS FIX AT YOUR OWN RISK!
