It?s difficult to say for sure without knowing the details but its doubtful you?re loosing files if you are using the Windows uninstall utility.

To get a harddrive upto 1TB with new bulk, what should pick?

Larry the Fixya Computer Guru says;

  • Anonymous Jan 19, 2021this question makes zero sense.
    No PC told, no telling if HDD is boot drive.
    no told OS you run, windows 10?
    we can not see over your shoulder and know what is in your had.

    tell what PC you have. first.
    gee, golly wise, man.
    then is this a 2nd drive to add or the boot drive now to be replaced
    ????

    1TB drives come in.
    SSD 2.5":
    SSD m.3
    2.5" HDd
    3.5" HDd.
    and more, sata and scsi and sas and FiberCh.
    and more.

    1TB tells me not a thing, even external drives.

    or if super lost post photo of your PC first.

Unable to boot system and repair feature will not run. Also, there are no restore points (files). However I can get into the cmd prompt mode. Safe mode does not work. System is a Toshiba Satellite...

Hi there!
Well it seems that you are in a bad situation my friend. So let me help you out.
It seems that your system files are corrupt & preventing it to go to windows (may be due to improper shut-down).

What to do?
Please remove the hard disk from your laptop, put it in an external 2.5" casing. Then plug it to another laptop or pc having a good anti-virus. Now switch on the other computer. The system will correct the files on boot. If this doesn't happen, go to my computer after boot. Locate the HDD in my computer \ your HDD \ properties \ tools \
Here you'll run chkdisk & scan for errors, bad sectors etc. After that scan for any virus in that HDD. Now back up your important stuffs & send it to your DATA partition.
Now shutdown laptop & remove the HDD from the casing, then put it back in your laptop. Now boot & see your problems solved.
Please send us your feedback & vote to motivate us.Thanks.

Free space of Intel Centrino Duo is lessening

Any anti airus program will use more and more disk space as time goes on. Every time it updates, it gets more virus information. Also, if you use the internet, you will get cookies and junk from every site you go to. Under tools-internet options, clear everything off when you get done with the internet. Anything you add to your computer and then remove, leaves a lot of info. in the registry files. Ge a registry cleaner and run it. It will not only get rid of a lot of junk, it will also help your computer run faster. There is NO way to keep your hard drive from geting less and less space as time rolls on, other than removing a lot of stuff.
Get AVAST AntiVirus. It's free and just as good as the ones you pay a lot of money for. It also updates automatically.

LAPTOP TELL ME i HAVE LOW DISK SPACE

This means your Harddrive(HDD) is nearly full with files and there is no more room to save/work on the harddrive.
You will have to delete some saved files or to uninstall some programs that you are not using anymore, this will create some free space on your HDD. Also do a right click on the Recycle bin/Empty recycle bin and it wil clear some space... If you need more help, let me know, I am happy to help you...

Bought a floor sample, a few simple questions, please help!

Most new VAIO's do not come with any recovery CD or DVD what so ever.

The Vista installation has a recovery on the Hard Drive, so the use is welcome to create his own backup and recovery CD's. SONY tech support will probably tell you the same.

As you use windows, it will create it's own recovery points, which will also be stored on the Hard Drive, eating up some space. This is normal unless you turn off this Windows feature.

Also, did you delete files or did they just end up in the File Trash Bin ?
Clean out the file trash bin from time to time to free up some of the HD space.

Hope this helps

More Hard Drive Space needed

well kristy, in installing the new HDD for your PC, just find a free SATA cable (that usually comes with the HDD when you buy one) the a free power pin, shut the computer down, plug both in, screw the HDD in place, then reboot the computer. Format the HDD under disk management (to do this check the link below)

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000

for the RAM, i personally recommend getting the exact same RAM that you have right now, that is because of stability and compatibility. some issues may occur when you use generic plus branded.
