I'm trying to increase hard disk space on a Dell


Hi.

The Dell Inspiron 1100 is a laptop whereas the Dell Dimension 2400 is a desktop pc.

The hard drives are incompatible because they are a different size, plus the Inspiron only supports one hard drive so you can't install a slave device. The only way to increase hard disk space is to buy a large capacity internal IDE laptop drive or an external hard drive.



Regards.

Want to free up space on my internal hard drive (Apple PowerBook G4) without


Mac do not waste space, I recommend you to use an external hard drive. Try to find one with twice capacity that your computer's hard drive.I mean, if your computer hard drive is 500Gb, then find an external drive with 1Tb

I've met space limit for my SimpleTech external drive even though my internal drive still has space and both are 250 GB. Are there SimpleTech programs taking up space and if so how much of that 250 GB...


Your internal drive is different than your external drive. If you put more files onto your SimpleTech drive, then that one is going to fill up faster. The best thing to do would be to go through your SimpleTech drive and delete anything that you don't need. I don't remember my SimpleTech drive coming with any software on the drive, but if it did, it didn't take up much space.

I only have a 4 GB Hard Drive. I need more space.


Hello,

There will be more works to install an internal hard drive. You need to back up your data in the old drive, install the operating system in new drive, and copy back your data. I will think buying an external hard drive will be better options (or an usb hard drive enclosure and hard drive buying separately).

My pc tells me that I'm running out of hard drive


You can use either.

You can also use external portable hard disk, you can move all your software and stuff to it.

Better would be installing a new operating system to new hard **** with larger capacity, it will make your system fast.

You can also fit hard disk in your computer PC cabinet, you will just need to set it as "Slave" or secondary hard disk, to do this, setting is available on the hard disk.

Does the toshiba satellite a135 s2276 accomodate a second hard drive?


You won't find internal room to place a second hard drive, if that's what you're asking. Most laptops simply do not have the internal space, especially thin-line units.

What you could do for extra storage space is purchase an external drive.

I need to add space to my compaq presario desk top. i don't know how to on this computer. the model# SR5034X


If you want to increase cpu speed so you need to increase RAM memory.
You can fix it on motherbord of desktop cpu.
But if you have low space on disk storage partition so you can add space to desktop with 2 method.
(1) you can add harddisk to desktop cpu with sata or IDE .SATA harddisk is best if your motherbord support SATA.
You can add harddisk as you like for example 80 GB or 160 Gb.
(2) If you want to add RAM memory for speed reson you can purchase new RAm and fix it in memory module slot on motherbord.
There is 2 type on
RAM in currently.
DDR1 and DDR2

you can add RAM memory like 512 MB or 1GB or more.

Hard Drive


Hi,

For some reason, I see a lot of the external USB hard drives having issues. Though I have an IDE to USB external enclosure as well as a 2.5 USB enclosure, I find it more assuring to use a secondary HD installed internally to the PC.

Alternately (and probably more to your requirement), if you intend to add more hard disk space but retain your original configuration, files and data (or simply same everything except bigger) then perhaps what you can do is clone your present HD to a bigger HD and swap when done. There are many programs available for this purpose. An example is Acronis True Image. Alternately, you can do a Google for hard drive cloning software.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
