Not Enough Drive Space

Hello! I currently have an Intel Pentium 4 CPU computer. It appears there are two drives on this computer (the local disk drive - C - and the My Documents drive - D). The C: drive has only 18 MB of free space left, while the D: drive has over 42 GB of space. My computer keeps giving me an error message that I am running low on space on the C: drive, and that I need to delete some programs to free-up some space. I have used the disk defragmenter, as well as the disk clean-up feature. I want to use the space on the D: drive (since it has tons of space), but I don't want to just move programs over to the D: drive, because I know that can mess-up the program file path, thus not being able to open the program. How can I free-up space on my C: drive and use some of the D: drive space, so I won't keep getting this error message? Thanks for your help! Kim

Hi,

the best thing for you to do is go to control panel and then to add/remove programs and remove any unnecessary programs from your C: drive because this drive has been formatted for windows so you can't just take programs and drop them in the other drive. let me know if this works out for you.

please rate me. thank you.

Try to uninstall unwanted softwares from the addremove programe from the control pannel and go to C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temp and delete the all the files in it and also go to C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files this will also free up a lot of space for you.

Error loading operating system


You will need to perform a repair install using a Windows CD. The current configuration on the hard drive was basically with an entirely different computer and thus, it does not know how to "talk" to the new hardware. The repair install should fix that and create a new Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) that will enable Windows to "talk" to the new hardware.

Optical drives do not recognize disk when trying to load new disk


If you cannot read those CD-disks in _any_ computer, then the disks are "bad".

If you can read those CD-disks, then it's time to replace the CD/DVD drive. Find a smaller computer-store -- often they will remove the "dead" drive, and install the "new" drive, for $0.00, or for a small fee, if you buy the new CD/DVD-writer from them.

Im trying to upgrade my hard drive from a 40g to a 160 but it only shows up as 40gb


You probably used software to "clone" the "old" disk-drive to the "new" disk-drive. So, the "new" drive is an *EXACT* image of the 40GB drive.

Click Start
Point to My Computer
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button.
Click Manage
Double-click Storage
Double-click Disk Management (local)
You'll see that the "last" 120GB on the new disk are "unallocated".

Use that "disk-cloning" software to "resize" the 40GB partition on the new disk-drive, to integrate that "unallocated" space into the current partition.

Or, right-mouse click on that "unallocated" space, and create a partition within that space, and to "format" that space, and to assign a drive-letter (E: ? F: ?) to that 120GB of disk-space.

Hard disk drive D reads 9.16 used GB space....the free disk reads 1.24 space. That is only 1/4 of the whole pie shown. I was told that I still have a lot of space...how is that?


Hello your D: drive is most likely a Windows Operating system backup drive only to use when your computer crashes so you do not use Drive D: for anything on your system Drive C: however is your main system drive where all of your programs are kept you should have a 320GB hard drive if im not mistaken but the drive is Portioned which means basicly windows takes a piece of the 320 GB drive and sets it up as another Drive which is your Drive D and all the rest is on your Drive C so if you check the settings on your drive C you should have plenty of space available this is why you have a lot of space left im assuming if your C drive isn't full

My video player plays then stops, then plays then stops, help?


Are you playing from internet, or from hard drive, or from a DVD drive?
If hard drive, update your player to the newest version, and do a Windows Update.
If internet videos, check your Task Manager for CPU or Memory for programs that are hogging a lot of use. Also sometimes it's based on your internet speed, or cache. Cache is a small chunk of space your computer stores, if the cache isn't big enough you can change the cache settings.
If it's DVD drive, is it an ATA drive or SATA drive?

Local Disk C running out of space but the D drive has plenty of space. How to make the D drive the primary partition? Os in on C drive windows Vista.


Do you run Disk Cleanup regularly (once a month)? This will free up disk space on the C drive, it remover old temporary files and compressed files as well as other files.
You can also move and save your data files to the D drive, so the C drive has only the operating system files and program files.

1. right click on C: Local Disk ( your C drive )

2. click properties

3. look at the amount of used space in blue , and free space you have in pink

to free up more hard drive space

Go to the add/remove programs in control panel

Look for programs that you don't need and uninstall them.

then run the windows disk clean up utility.

Really disappointed with dual core


You can buy a 3.02 pentium 4 processor and need not change any thing else. On the other hand try changing your hard disk with a one with smaller capacity such as 80 GB make it primary with the windows partition not exceeding 15 GB . Make this drive (80 GB )primary and other one secondary.Increase the virtual memory size of your system and for sure you wont need to buy any thing or be depressed anymore.
