    Is it the norton files that are taking up the space? This is unlikely unless the program is malfunctioning.

    However, a program I reccomend you use to save space is CCleaner - you can download it from here:http://www.ccleaner.com/
    Don't do the registry cleanup - just the standard ones.

    If it is norton that is malfunctioning then I suggest you re-install it, just make sure you download any updates after installation.

    Good luck, hope this helps.

Norton is known to be memory intensive. Depending on the size of you HD - you may want to save some of your documents on an external drive instead - (good for backing up of you system too.) Run the disk clean up utility found in Programs-Accessories-System Tools-Disk Cleanup then defrag the HD. This will give you some extra space. Last is either uninstall Norton and get a less memory hog such and Trend Micro. Hope this helps.

Cannot sign in to myemail. com; getting message that webmail disk space is running low


If you are not low on disc space, the computer is being fooled into thinking it is. Try running a registry cleaner first followed by defragmenting the file system.

I have a Compaq CQ2103WM computer running Windows XP, it currently has 0 bytes of disk space. What could be causing low disk space after running disk cleaner, Ccleaner, deleting most software, programs...


You need to do a chkdsk on this and see what comes up with that. This will check all of the partitions. It may be that the drive is bad. On start up you can hit f10 and perform a disc scan as well.

My c disk memory is full how can i murge d disk


Unfortunately there's no easy way to add space to a C: partition that's run out of space. My best recommendation would be to purchase a copy of Norton/Symantec Ghost OR Acronis Workstation 10. With both of these tools, you can create a perfect backup of your laptop, and then change the size of your partition during the restore process. The end result is that your computer works exactly like it did before, except you have more space on your C partition.

Or, if you don't want to do that, you can just move non-essential things from your C drive to your D drive, like your My Documents folder, the system page file, temp files, etc...

Hi. I cannot defrag D Recovery Drive due to lack of space.


You do NOT need to defrag the recovery partition. The contents of that partition are most likely in a compressed form, and in any case, unchanging, so do not require a defrag. It's a good idea to leave the recovery partition absolutely alone.

For future reference, if you need to defragment a normal partition in low space conditions, try something advanced like Diskeeper 2008. Diskeeper is the best and most powerful defragmenter, and can defragment drives with even less than 5-10% free disk space. By comparison, the windows defragger requires atleast 15%, and yet does not defrag system files.
