If you have installed the linux in that space then it will not show some times ...
it will also not if it is not partioned correctly ...

you just go to

control panel >(classic view) >administrative tools >computer management >disk management (this is for windows XP)

see if there is any unpartioned space means then just format there by right clicking on it ....

if there is no unpartioned space then check how many drives you have .....
it will show all the partitions over here if you are not able to see some partition in your my computer then may be that partition may be in unsupported format so it is not showing you ... so delete that partition & reformat you will able to use it ...

if you still persist the problem then you can check the harddisk capacity first & then get on to the things ...

that s all your problem will be solved ...

any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye

Error message 1324. The path My Pictures contains an invalid character. Version 2.5.2.36 Can I remove? Can I update so my Quickbooks program can update? Need help please!


There are 3 possible reasons why you are getting this error message:

1. An invalid character in QuickBooks installation path.
2. An incorrect path setting in the Windows registry.
3.Insufficient hard drive space available to install the QuickBooks program.

To fix this problem, please do the following:
  1. Restart your computer, and reinstall QuickBooks.
  2. Confirm that at least 2.5 GB of disk space is available for installing QuickBooks (Quickbooks 2010 requires 1.5GB of disk space):
    1. Double-click the Computer (for Windows 7 or Vista) or My Computer (for Windows XP) icon on your Windows desktop.
    2. Note the amount of free space shown in the window next to the drive letter where QuickBooks is being installed:
      • If the amount of free space is less than 1 GB, free up disk space before installing QuickBooks or install QuickBooks on a different drive.
      • If the amount of free space is greater than 1 GB, proceed with step 2.
  3. Remove invalid characters from the QuickBooks installation path:
    1. Right-click the Windows Start button and select Explore.
    2. Navigate to the path shown in the error:
      • If there are non-alphanumeric characters in the name of any folder in the installation path, right-click the folder and select Rename to remove them, and then reinstall QuickBooks.
      • If there are only alphanumeric characters in the installation path, proceed with step 3.
  4. Create a new user in Windows to rewrite any Windows registry settings that may be causing the error and log in as that user to install QuickBooks.
Note: You must be logged in as a Windows administrator or as a member of the Administrator group to add a new user.
If this solution does not resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free, or you can contact a technical support agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.

I cant sand my data to pen drive frm my pc


If you are not able to send data to your pen drive from your PC that means your pen drive does not have space to carry more data. Please check the space in your pen drive that how much space left in your pen drive or do you have any space left in your pen drive.

to check space in your pen drive follow this:-

open computer or my computer>right click on pen drive icon>left click on properties>now you check the used space and unused pace.

If there is a space left in your pen drive then how much space left because you can download or transferred your data to pen drive up to that limit that space you have left in your pen drive.

If you have no space left in your pen drive or very less space then you can increase the space by moving some files from your pen drive and saving it up in another place in your computer

Computer saying its using more space then it actually is


Go to computer management (Right click my computer and go to manage) and select disk management. There you can see unpartitioned space and used space. Create partitions in unpartitioned space.

How can i expand my pc memory


Hi there,
There is a free program called ncleaner that I use to free up space on Windows. It properly deletes all unnecessary files on your system, and can also 'shred' the free space on the system, and clean up redundant registry entries. I swear by it. you can download it from here:
http://www.nkprods.com/ncleaner/

Another trick is to go to My Computer > C: > Program Files > Java, and delete older versions of Java. Leave the most recent one (ie the highest number), but when Java updates it doesn't delete older versions, which can increasingly take up space on your hard drive.

I would recommend ncleaner as essential, and the Java deletion method as optional. After you have cleaned the drive and the registry etc. with ncleaner you might be able to get a little more space back by defragmenting the hard drive.
Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter
and then press Defragment. This is something you should be doing occasionally anyway.

Try and keep around 15% of your hard drive free at all times to avoid the system from slowing down and hanging up. You could burn all your media files onto disk, or move them onto a USB stick, and then delete them from the hard drive.

Good luck and Happy Holidays :)

Defragmentation


Fragmentation occurs when the operating system cannot or will not allocate enough contiguous space to store a complete file as a unit, but instead puts parts of it in gaps between other files (usually those gaps exist because they formerly held a file that the operating system has subsequently deleted or because the operating system allocated excess space for the file in the first place). Larger files and greater numbers of files also contribute to fragmentation and consequent performance loss. Defragmentation attempts to alleviate these problems.
Example Consider the following scenario, as shown by the image on the right:
410px-file_system_fragmentation.svg.png An otherwise blank disk has 5 files, A, B, C, D and E each using 10 blocks of space (for this section, a block is an allocation unit of that system, it could be 1K, 100K or 1 megabyte and is not any specific size). On a blank disk, all of these files will be allocated one after the other. (Example (1) on the image.) If file B is deleted, there are two options, leave the space for B empty and use it again later, or compress all the files after B so that the empty space follows it. This could be time consuming if there were hundreds or thousands of files which needed to be moved, so in general the empty space is simply left there, marked in a table as available for later use, then used again as needed.[1] (Example (2) on the image.) Now, if a new file, F, is allocated 7 blocks of space, it can be placed into the first 7 blocks of the space formerly holding the file B and the 3 blocks following it will remain available. (Example (3) on the image.) If another new file, G is added, and needs only three blocks, it could then occupy the space after F and before C. (Example (4) on the image). Now, if subsequently F needs to be expanded, since the space immediately following it is no longer available, there are two options: (1) add a new block somewhere else and indicate that F has a second extent, or (2) move the file F to someplace else where it can be created as one contiguous file of the new, larger size. The latter operation may not be possible as the file may be larger than any one contiguous space available, or the file conceivably could be so large the operation would take an undesirably long period of time, thus the usual practice is simply to create an extent somewhere else and chain the new extent onto the old one. (Example (5) on the image.) Repeat this practice hundreds or thousands of times and eventually the file system has many free segments in many places and many files may be spread over many extents. If, as a result of free space fragmentation, a newly created file (or a file which has been extended) has to be placed in a large number of extents, access time for that file (or for all files) may become excessively long.
The process of creating new files, and of deleting and expanding existing files, may sometimes be colloquially referred to as churn, and can occur at both the level of the general root file system and in subdirectories. Fragmentation not only occurs at the level of individual files, but also when different files in a directory (and maybe its subdirectories), that are often read in a sequence, start to "drift apart" as a result of "churn".
A defragmentation program must move files around within the free space available to undo fragmentation. This is a memory intensive operation and cannot be performed on a file system with no free space. The reorganization involved in defragmentation does not change logical location of the files (defined as their location within the directory structure).
