Laptop C partition low disk space


Make sure your hard disk has enough space. Most often when the error massage comes it will tell you how much free space is required to install the game look keenly and know how much space is required then either move all media files mainly video files especially downloaded in the download folder to an alternative partition and only leave windows and installed program on Local Disk C. Other wise if your hard disk capacity is very small then am afraid that you will have to get a bigger hard disk.

Error message 1324. The path My Pictures contains an invalid character. Version 2.5.2.36 Can I remove? Can I update so my Quickbooks program can update? Need help please!


There are 3 possible reasons why you are getting this error message:

1. An invalid character in QuickBooks installation path.
2. An incorrect path setting in the Windows registry.
3.Insufficient hard drive space available to install the QuickBooks program.

To fix this problem, please do the following:
  1. Restart your computer, and reinstall QuickBooks.
  2. Confirm that at least 2.5 GB of disk space is available for installing QuickBooks (Quickbooks 2010 requires 1.5GB of disk space):
    1. Double-click the Computer (for Windows 7 or Vista) or My Computer (for Windows XP) icon on your Windows desktop.
    2. Note the amount of free space shown in the window next to the drive letter where QuickBooks is being installed:
      • If the amount of free space is less than 1 GB, free up disk space before installing QuickBooks or install QuickBooks on a different drive.
      • If the amount of free space is greater than 1 GB, proceed with step 2.
  3. Remove invalid characters from the QuickBooks installation path:
    1. Right-click the Windows Start button and select Explore.
    2. Navigate to the path shown in the error:
      • If there are non-alphanumeric characters in the name of any folder in the installation path, right-click the folder and select Rename to remove them, and then reinstall QuickBooks.
      • If there are only alphanumeric characters in the installation path, proceed with step 3.
  4. Create a new user in Windows to rewrite any Windows registry settings that may be causing the error and log in as that user to install QuickBooks.
Note: You must be logged in as a Windows administrator or as a member of the Administrator group to add a new user.
If this solution does not resolve the issue, you can read discussions and post messages and questions relating to your issue on the Intuit QuickBooks Community site for free, or you can contact a technical support agent for additional guidance. Fees may apply.

Fix a Cycle Redundancy Check Error


The "Cyclic Redundancy Check" error is a Windows error message telling you there's a problem reading data you're trying to access.


The root of this problem could either be a damaged storage device or a corrupt file.

Windows has built-in tools to attempt to fix to this problem, and avoid further errors.


Click on the "Start" menu in the bottom left-hand corner and click "Run."

Type in "cmd" and press "Enter" on your keyboard.

This will open a black command prompt box.


Type in "chkdsk /f" and press "Enter."

If you receive a message saying the disk will be checked the next time the system starts, press "Y" and then "Enter."


Restart your computer by closing the command prompt box and selecting "Shut Down" from the Start menu.


Wait for the disk scan to reach 100 per cent.

This may take awhile.

When it completes, your drive errors may be fixed.


Avoid future problems with this type of error by replacing the file that caused the problem.

For example, if you got the error when using a text document, open the document and copy all the text (press "Ctrl" and "A" at the same time and then "Ctrl" and "C" at the same time).


Create a new text document and paste the text in by pressing "Ctrl" and "V" simultaneously. Save the new file, and delete the old document.


Hope this heps

Hi I am trying to download skype 5.5 free version and it is not going past skypetm -Install window.. I hv tried to wait for almost an hour but nothing has worked so far.. Will appreciate help solving the...


Hello,
Maybe you need some hard disk space and Skype requires at least 256 MB of RAM and 18 MB of free hard-disk space for installation files. Try to delete some of your files that are not necessary especially images. To find out how much free disk space is on your computer:

  • Open your "My Computer" folder by clicking the icon on your desktop. If you do not have a shortcut on your desktop, open your "Start" menu and right-click on the "My Computer" icon.

  • 2 Right-click on your hard drive icon. Generally, the hard drive is named the C: drive. Select the "Properties" option from the drop-down menu.

  • 3 Read the pie chart and accompanying information to determine how much free disk space your hard drive has. Windows operating systems use blue to indicate how much disk space you are using and purple to depict how much free space is available.

  • If you have enough space, try to download SKYPE


    If this would help you please don't forget to give rating.


    Thank you for using FixYa. : )

    Hard disk drive D reads 9.16 used GB space....the free disk reads 1.24 space. That is only 1/4 of the whole pie shown. I was told that I still have a lot of space...how is that?


    Hello your D: drive is most likely a Windows Operating system backup drive only to use when your computer crashes so you do not use Drive D: for anything on your system Drive C: however is your main system drive where all of your programs are kept you should have a 320GB hard drive if im not mistaken but the drive is Portioned which means basicly windows takes a piece of the 320 GB drive and sets it up as another Drive which is your Drive D and all the rest is on your Drive C so if you check the settings on your drive C you should have plenty of space available this is why you have a lot of space left im assuming if your C drive isn't full

    Deleting updates, freeing space on hard drive


    if you are running windows vista, this might help alot, if running xp, it might not, go disk clean up for drive c. to do this, open up my computer, and right click on drive c, and open up properties. click on disk clean up, and a window should show up. if you are running windows vista, its going to ask if from current user, or all users, click all users. after the calculating window, a window that says disk clean up for drive c will show up. click on the tab at the top of that window that says more options, and on the bottom box, which should say system restore and shadow copies, click the clean up button. the longer it takes, the more space its freeing up. Goodluck
