You just right click on the d drive and select explore or double click it, there won't be anything in the drive apart from maybe a system back up file.

when in there make a new folder called programme files

If you have a lot of programmes installed on your c drive, then uninsatl them and reinstall again, but when the option comes up to install in a specific folder choose 'D' drive then choose programme files folder, the programme will then be installed there, but will still put an icon on your desktop as normal.

you can also transfer any video or music to the d drive, just make a folder in the d drive called music and video, select your music you wish to move select 'Cut' then open the folder on the 'D' drive and select paste.

Also run this free programme to clear your system up

C drive says there is almost no space


I assume that you're running a spyware/adware program weekly and that no one using this laptop is downloading movies, or large amounts of audio files as either can fill the hard drive fairly quickly. Also, although it is usually given a different drive letter, you may be viewing the restore partition Acer uses if the computer needed to be reset to original factory settings.

MY DATA (D:) IS NEARLY FULL


Hard disk maintenance should be carried once a month to make your computer run efficiently. This removes redundant and temporary files, recovers disk space and speed up hard disk access. Disk Cleanup should be done first - Click My Computer - then right click on the C drive then click Properties, then click Disk Cleanup - let it examine the C drive then it will calculate the amount of disk space it will recover, tick all the boxes to recover the maximum disk space and then Click OK and then Yes to perform these actions. If you have a D drive then repeat these steps on this drive too. Next the C drive needs to be Defrag. This process converts fragmented files into continuous files and this speeds up disk access and makes the hard disk not work as hard. Click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Defragmenter - click to highlight the C drive and click Analyse - then click Defragment. Repeat Defrag for the D drive.

Acer Aspire 5002WLMi Laptop won't recognize full 320 Gigabytes of new PATA hard drive. It's always been running a 80 Gigabyte 4200 RPM but that drive is old...a 2005 HD. New WD320 only reads 137...


The BIOS in the ACER determines the maximum size of the hard drive it can support.
Check the laptop's specification to see the max size you can install in this model laptop.
It appears that the max size your laptop can support is 140 Gb (unformatted). 137Gb formatted.

I suggest you install a hard drive up to 140 Gb capacity in your laptop and place the 320 Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and when you attach this hard drive to the USB port in your ACER laptop then you will be able to get the full 320 Gb capacity after you delete the partition and create a 320 Gb partition and format the hard drive.

I tried to install Windows XP and now it only sees half the hard disk of 320 GB that is only 160.


Hi, You can check the available **** space on your computer by going to Disk Management Utility in Windows XP. You can go to the utility by going to run then typing compmgmt.msc > then click on Disk Management > this utility will indicate the free space and also will give the total size of you hard disk drive. See if there is an unallocated disk space on the computer. You can right-click on it then choose to format it and then assign a disk drive letter like drive d: .

Acer 5315 HD C is full HD D empty


Very likely the answer is yes, IF: 1) there is enough space and 2) that D drive is not being used for something else. Check on what is on the D drive. It's usually reserved by the manufacturer and contains OS restore files (used for restoring your system after a crash). Don't delete these, but if there is enough free space, just create a new folder and put your files in there.

I need more space on my laptop


ahaaahhhhhhh......... you mention your partition drive D is completly empty...transfer your drive C files to your drive D. by that you can free space in your DRive C and also right now you are experiencing slow in operation of your laptop ryt? its because Drive C is almost full and your drive C is the partition where your operating system installed...

about your question of combining the drive c and D yes it is possible. for for me you have already the advantege setup currently i yopur laptop all you need to do is balence your files... make your drive D your storage files. your back up area. like your personal files, pictures, music, videos transfer it to drive D

Have tried a solution but there's still a problem


look first make habit of saving ur downloads to Drive D ok never save ur download s on drive Acer : C secondly let me tell u windows Vista is a bulky OS and it needs much space on hard drive thats why atleast 120 Gb is recommended for Vista it seems like u have an 80 gb hard drive Vista will work but it will take much of ur drive space as my Vista installation is around 39 GB now i dont know but it grows his size day by day thats why some ppl with less system resources go back to XP , u can free up more disk space by doing following:

go to http://www.ccleaner.com download ans install it run the cleaner and look for temp files that may be lying and occupying disk space.

2. Go to My Computer Right click on Acer C take properties click button Disk cleanup select files from all users let it scan ur hard drive and then it will present u with some temp files , hibernation files and thumbnail files and error reporting files check the boxes and perform the cleanup select all of them u will get some space press OK it will cleanup and delete these files and u will see some space freed up, in more options in the same windows u can also uninstall some progrmas on ur C drive which u installed and u no longerr want now u can un install them as well after that come out of it

3. Now go to My computer right click and take properties of Acer C now go to Tools Tab and select Defragment Now and select C drive and defrag ur drive this will take time after this correct free space will be visible to u after all cleaning steps

if u get enuff space u wanted then it is ok otherwise u can also take some space from the D drive and can merge into C drive if u want i can help u in that but i prefer changing ur hard drive as it is too small for a system like Vista , XP will give u no trouble on that drive


pls let me know and do rate me if i fixya problem

Acer 3680. only half of the harddrive works.


check it on the bios the size of your hard disk, if its 80 gb then go to the control panel after booting open the administrative tools, open computer management, then select disk management, check the hard disk there, if there is an unpartitioned space , then convert it to the partioned space

I have an ACER ASPIRE 5720 laptop - it is less than a year old and it is showing the memory is full - the memory is meant to be 32 GB and from what I can see from the programme menus there is less than 4...


Hi j0shuatsb,
Acer like many other manufactures seem to design their system to fail or have issues just after their 1 year warranty is up. Like other Microsoft windows operating systems, when you receive an error message that you're memory is full. This does not mean you have run out of RAM = memory. You're notebook can only run a max of 4GB of memory. The error message refers to hard disk drive space. Depending on you're operating system, windows will lock out so much drive space so it can move about. All notebooks also have a hidden partition which holds drivers & programs used in combination for running the system restore.
This hidden partition can range in size from 2GB up to 4GB.
This also lessens you're total hard disk drive space. Bottom line is there is nothing wrong with your memory.
What you need is a larger hard disk drive. Notice the Technical specifications from this link:
http://www.acer.co.uk/public/page9.do?sp=page4&dau34.oid=24360&UserCtxParam=0&GroupCtxParam=0&dctx1=17&CountryISOCtxParam=UK&LanguageISOCtxParam=en&ctx3=-1&ctx4=United+Kingdom&crc=512458878
It does not show what size you're SATA hard disk drive is.
Since you are still in warranty, now would be the time to increase you're drive size. On another note, if you're HDD is the standard 160GB than there is an issue with your current HDD.
Please run a full system virus scan.
Suggest you back up all you're personal data on to a DVD & run you're system restore CD including a format to help you regain you're HDD full space. A temporary fix would be to uninstall any non needed programs through Add/Remove programs. This should free up some space. Many Acer programs you do not use at all or need should be the first to go.
