Question about Sony VAIO FRV37 Notebook

1 Answer

I/O device error DVD will not download software.

I also have a problem with C drive it on has 12 % free space and will not defrag. I have deleted and moved files to D drive to free up space and it just does not free up space.

My C drive has 15 GB and D has 35 GB but it uses C drive I think the partition is backwards.

Laptop C partition low disk space error


You can try and compress your file this will give you 15 to 20 percent more space. Also, download CCleaner and run it this will also help clean up disk space. And run disk cleaner and last run a defrag

Laptop C partition low disk space


1st run disk cleanup. Then compress you C-drive this will compress all your file freeing up space. Then download CCleaner and run that. Finally, run disk defrag. But you should also erase stuff you do not need.

Is it ok to defragment my 2T goflex portable hard drive?


Yes. Defragmenting simply takes the pieces of empty space on the drive and groups them together. When you delete data from a drive or it is deleted as part of a program's function (such as deleting files only needed during installation) it leaves a blank space, but files are lined up on the drive. So if the files are like so:

2GB File ' 3 GB File ' 5.5 GB Free Space ' 1.5 GB File ' 4 GB Free Space

Then defragmenting would try to rearrange the files like so:

2 GB File ' 3 GB File ' 1.5 GB File ' 9.5 GB Free Space


So, in short, yes, it's okay to defragment your drive.

I keep getting a note teling me that I have Low Disc Space on my Local Disc (D) - 4.87MB free of 119 GB. How do I free up this space. When using it's solution it just empies my Recycle Bin but this doesn't...


I would download and run the registry utility from iobit.com
It is freeware and works then run CHKDSK/F.

Within iobits programme are useful utilities that empty the temporary directories and can remove unwanted old files.
Hope that helps.

My D: drive is 99% full how do I free up disk space ?


Music, video and pictures use the most hard drive space. Store them on a disc or on line storage site. After the delete or removing as advised, defrag you hard drive. This should free up space. Get rid of any programs you don't use. As long as you don't delete hidden files you should be fine. Hope this helps. If you are using windows XP go to start, control panel add and remove programs and delete only the programs that you installed and remove only them.

Hp Pavilion a1620n, XP Edition. I Can't defrag my recovery drive.


Unfortunately you will need to do exactly what it states, which is free up some space. Defragging a drive requires there to be an ample amount of "swap space" available so that it can move files into that 15% of space while it rearragnes the placement of other files and puts them back in an order which will provide faster access to the files after the defrag is complete. being that it is your D: drive, can't you just move some files to your C: drive to make enough space for the defrag??

Please be sure to rate this solution.

Try to defrag. and getchkdsk./f/ ?


There can be two possible reasons for this: Defrag checks your hard drive for errors before it runs and will not run if you have bad sectors. You can run "chkdisk /f" from the command prompt (Start, run, CMD, enter) to fix those errors. Secondly, you could have less than 10% of drive space left on your Hard Drive. In this case you would need to burn some stuff to DVD or delete unwanted programs to free up enough space. If these don't work, you will need to provide more detailed information so that we can help you better.

    Sounds like more of a software problem, I've had my dvd drive only show up as a cd drive but i think that was only in windows 98? Many problems will start showing up when your disk is very full. Try deleting some old files until you have 25% free space (only 75% full) or 20% free (80 full) at the minimum, then defragment. I recommend using a 3rd party program such as Diskeeper, since windows defrag Isn't very good.
    If you can not free up enough space because all of your things are too important to delete, think about buying an external hard drive to back up too, or simply look for a bigger hard drive of the laptop and copy the old hard drives contents to the new one using something like norton ghost.
    Most likely you would need a laptop hdd to desktop hdd converter, which is like $5 or less, so you can copy the contents since laptops can only have one hard drive (usually). If you can't do this or don't want to try it, bring your laptop to a pc repair shop and they will transfer your data to a bigger hdd for you for a nominal fee.
    Remember, I do not guarantee this to fix your dvd problem, but it is a good idea to do it anyways to increase performance and reliability.

Low space


Have you tried clearing the "Temp" and the "Prefetch" folders?
Go to Start -> Run

Type - "temp" (without the quotes) in the run dialog and delete all files with Shift+Delete.
Repeat the same operation with the prefetch folder. (Type prefetch instead of temp now)

It should be able to clear just a few MBs.

Also, I would recommend uninstalling any unwanted software that you may have installed on your system.

Also, as it is evident from your above post, you have been saving a lot of stuff in the My Documents folder. I would hereby recommend saving large files on the C Drive(D) drive so a balance would be maintained.
