Your D drive is usually for system restore. Insteed of system restore disk the manufacturer will partition a drive and place the installation data in the D drive. You should have a C drive and this is where you want to focus on. Delete unwanted pictures , music, and other unwanted files. Movies will really use a lot of drive space.

Is it ok to defragment my 2T goflex portable hard drive?


Yes. Defragmenting simply takes the pieces of empty space on the drive and groups them together. When you delete data from a drive or it is deleted as part of a program's function (such as deleting files only needed during installation) it leaves a blank space, but files are lined up on the drive. So if the files are like so:

2GB File ' 3 GB File ' 5.5 GB Free Space ' 1.5 GB File ' 4 GB Free Space

Then defragmenting would try to rearrange the files like so:

2 GB File ' 3 GB File ' 1.5 GB File ' 9.5 GB Free Space


So, in short, yes, it's okay to defragment your drive.

R 528 my laptop is problem by c drive in red line today my lape vista window and other drivers by correct with blue


Hi

I think it could be because the hard drive is almost full and not enough free working space on it
because windows needs to have a few GB,s free to use as working space without it it cannot run correctly

could you please go to

start
computer/local disk (c) properties
write down what it says please for
capacity ???GB
used Space ???GB
free Space ???GB

Can you also check to see if you are storing lots of video,s or hundred's of pictures
on the c drive either in your documents or desktop maybe
or have you done lots of backups which could be taking up your space

please check this out for us and come back to us also telling us what operating system you
are running im guessing it could be vista

many thanks

Hello I have an ascer aspire ast 180 ea381b with 160 gb of memory and it is always telling me that I am low on disk space. the C drive has 71.9 GB but only 4.3 M free. The D driver has 71.6 GB and 68.4...


4.3 GB is very less for current day windows versions (you have not specified what version of windows is installed in your computer). Please move some of your files like music, movies, photographs and documents to the D drive and free up the C drive. Ensure you free up atleast 15 GB in your C drive. Also try removing / uninstalling unwanted programs installed in your computer.

I have a 2006 HP Pavillion PC main process: AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ C Drive Free Space 476 MB, Total Size 18 GB D Drive Free Space 270 GB, Total Size 280 GB Is it possible to repartition...


The short answer to your question is "Yes" however, all information on the drive would be lost. As a work-around, store/move more information to the D: volume. Perhaps install any new software programs to D: rather than C:

221 GB Free on MyBook - Error states not enough space for backup


It may be due to the file system.  If formated as FAT32 files larger than 4gb may not transfer.  Try reformatting as NTFS to fix the problem.

221 GB Free on MyBook - Error states not enough space for backup


Is the drive formatted as FAT32?

If so, and your backup is more than 4GB, it will not be able to write the file to the drive.

Open a Command Prompt (Start | Run | CMD) and at the prompt type:
CONVERT V: /FS:NTFS /X
Where V: is the drive letter of your My Book.

That will convert it to NTFS and it will be able to handle files larger than 4GB.
