As a starter , you have to press the start button on your lower left, then choose all programs.. After selecting ( all programs ), select ( accessories) , then select system tools and last but not the least my friend, select disc cleanup. I hope this would solve your hard disk problem. If not, another option is that you have to delete any existing movies or game files that you don't use anymore. Frome your desktop, press the right button on your mouse pointing to what ever game or movie files that you need to delete. Select ( properties ), then select ( find target ) . When you found the main files of ether games nor movies, point your mouse pointer from the upper right part of all files then while holding or pressing down the right mouse button dragging somewhat a line to the bottom right of all files and dragging the mouse pointer to the lower left part of all files highlighting every files. When you released the right mouse button a choice will appear, select ( delete ). Have a nice day ! ! !

Solution of low disk space


HARD DISK MAINTENANCE TO KEEP COMPUTER RUNNING EFFICIENTLY.

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.
When this is completed repeat these steps for the D Drive if you have a D drive.
Disk Cleanup and Defrag can take a long time to complete, especially if these tasks have not been for a long time.

Not enough memory


If you have low memory (RAM) then install more RAM.
If you have low memory (hard disk space) the delete unwanted data files and uninstall unwanted programs.

You need to delete items to free up space. Not much else, but maybe run a defrag and disk cleanup.

Why does my laptop show low disc space?


Hello

The low disc space message refers to the amount of free disc space on your c drive. The c drive is the drive on which your windows is installed, thus yu need to delete some games or not neccesary files to free up some space on your drive. Hope this can help you.

Kind regards

Error: "Insufficient free space on startup disk"


Nikon View requires at least twice as much free space on the startup disk as the size of the CF Card being used to transfer images. For example, to transfer images from a 1GB card you will need at least 2GB free space for temporary storage while the images are transfered. The free space must be on the hard disk that the operating system is starting up from, even if the destination for the transfer is on a different drive.
