I am having a new problem with a 1 year old computer I built running Windows 7 64 bit.
I have two hard drives:
Solid State (Mainly just the OS on here)2nd hard drive with everything else on it.Windows is saying I have used 31.5 gb of space on the SSD.When I enable hidden folders/files and select everything on the drive, it is only coming up with 21.5gb used.I DO NOT have system restore enabled.I DO NOT have Windows backup enabled.Honestly have no clue what is causing this 10gb or so of space to be unaccounted for but I know it wasn't always like this
I have windows 7 ultimate 64 bit installed on my laptop. My problem is that my c drive shows 26 GB used space. However, if i go inside c drive and check properties of all folders including hidden files and protected operating system files, the total comes up to 29.1 GB. I have deleted all restore points and have system restore enabled only on c drive. I have allocated 3 GB on c drive for system restore points.......
I mapped a few network drives to different shared folders on my EX485 with the inital 750GB drive installed. Since then, I have installed an additional 2x1TB. However, in Windows 7 it is showing 1.18TB free of 678GB, so it recognizes the correct free space, but is still showing the old HDD total. I've removed the mappings and readded and rebooted both my PC and WHS with no luck.
I'm running Windows 7 64bit on a notebook. One 500GB drive partitioned to an OS drive and a data drive.I run AVAST (paid version), Malware Bytes and unhackme and no viruses/trojans/rootkits discovered - I'm a stickler for security.I noticed in Windows Exploring that both drives were getting low on available storage (both <8GB). I copied 30GB from the data drive and 10GB from the OS drive to an external drive and deleted the files from the notebook, using shift key/delete. I cleared the Recycle Bin; ran Disk error check (Scandisk) and defragged both drives.Folder Size & Treesize Pro both tell me I have 180GB & 100Gb respectively free; versus Windows Explorer 5Gb & 6GB.My available storage only increased by 800MB and 600MB respectively after deleting the files, so for a file removal of 40Gig I get back 1.4gig of HD space.I've checked pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys [8GB between them] and they haven't altered recently.Ran CCleaner's Registry cleaner - no difference.I rang the OS support for my Notebook Manufacturer and spent 1/2 a day trying different things including HD tune. They couldn't figure it out but suggested Utorrent may be grabbing HDD space so I uninstalled it.... no difference.
My C drive is showing that i have 1.6 GB of empty space. But when see the the contents by opening C drive and selecting everything and doing a space check i see only 86 GB of space taken up. My C partition is 100 GB and I have my page files are on a different drive. So pagefile.sys cannot be a problem, could it?
I installed Ubuntu on my computer a few months ago and created another partition for it on my 1TB hard drive. I didn't really care for Ubuntu so I decided to delete the partition it was on. That might have been a mistake. Well, now there's 87.68GB of free space on my hard disk that I can't use and I don't know how to add it back to my c: partition.
There was another post about this a couple years ago, but I don't understand the instructions and am not actually sure if it worked. Can someone explain how to do this, please? I'm not completely computer illiterate, but I'm not familiar with partitioning disks. It was just the one time with Ubuntu.

i have recently ran out room on my D drive. its 122gb and i can only account for around 11gb.this drive has the 'windows backup' located in it. im thinking that these flies are using all my space (or hidden files)is there any way 2 free up space and/or get rid of the backups?
I have a problem regarding space in c: drive. I installed win 7 in c: drive for second time because of my pc is very slow. I thought the reason for that is low free space in my c: drive. After installing win 7 I have installed programs listed below:
Adobe reader 9.0 Google chrome Intel graphics media accelerator driver jdk 7 avast free antivirus MS Office 2007 package
I have allocated 30GB out of 120GB for c: drive. But, now my pc's c: drive's used space is over 18GB. I think there is some problem with configurations of win 7 in my pc.
There's always a pop-up message that my Lenovo D: drive is almost out of space, I clicked it, cleared recycle bin, but nothing happened still, I manually checked on the drive but I'm afraid to delete these folders such as applications, drivers, etc..
I just installed 7 today. I kind of figured it would be like reformatting xp where it just wipes the hard drive clean and you start from scratch. All of my folders are empty but my HD only has 20G of free space i don't know whats taking it all up?
I was counting on having an almost empty HD when it was all installed. Sorry if this is a re-post.
Drive space keeps disappearing from my c drive for no reason. I have windows installed on an 11GB partition. In the last week, free space has dropped from around 1GB to nothing, then back to around 300MB. I can't understand why this is happening, I've installed nothing, disabled system restore and hibernation, and have a fixed pagefile of 250MB (all I need). I use CCleaner but none of the missing space is recovered, windows has eaten over 700MB and I see no reason for this,
I recently purchased a Dell Xps 1340 laptop that came with windows 7 32 bit professional. After a few months, I needed to wipe the hard disk, and so I did. Before I did, I extracted my product key with a program that I downloaded off the internet. I got the following information:
Windows 7 Professional Product Part No.: X15-37377 Installed from 'OEM' media. Product ID: ******* match to CD Key data CD Key: ********* Computer Name: ***-PC Registered Owner: *** Registered Organization:
Anyway, I had a RETAIL windows 7 professional disc, and I installed this onto my dell laptop. However, it keeps telling me that my product key is wrong when I try to activate. I have tried both 32bit and 64bit? is it because I'm using a RETAIL windows 7 disc? If I try a dell oem disc, will that work with my product key?
So I can't change the drive letter. Do I need to use Partition Magic again? The more I keep hearing/reading "do you have a backup?" - makes me believe the tool (OS) isn't capable of handling/accessing the data properly.
I originally had the free space as a D: Drive but decided to reallocate the space used back onto C:. I have gotten this far but am unsure how to continue because the extend drive option for C: is grayed out. I believe this is because the space which used to be D: is still shown as an extended partition. I have a Samsung RC512 with an Intel Core i7 Quad core processor and Windows 7 Home Premium.
there is an option in command line promt: Code: defrag C: /X which will consolidate free space, it takes about 40 or more minutes on 150GB HDD.what means this command? or what free space consolidation means?
I am running Windows 7, and for some reason my computer says I have no disk space free when I have recently deleted items freeing up about 40 more GB.For example, if I try to create a new folder, it says "There is not enough space on SW_Preload (C:). 0 bytes is needed to copy this item. Delete or move files so you have enough space." The reason I started deleting files is because my disk defragmenter wasn't working. I thought if I deleted some files then it would be able to move them around better? Well, all it seemed to have accomplished is making my disk think it's fuller...
I am planning on making a windows 7 image with macrium reflect free. Windows 7 is installed on a 290 GB partition. Now, only 22.3 GB of that space is being used, pretty much by windows 7 and other third-party programs. Will macrium reflect back up that 22.3 GB or back up all 290 GB which is mostly free space? ( I know that the question seems a little weird, but I want to make sure)
i have a reformated HDD that previously contained WinXP. When I installed Win 7 couple of years ago I retained the old drive until I could remove other data from it. That has all been done. The drive has been reformatted, but used space is 100MB. I suspect it was set aside for Win 7 System Reserved space.How can force that space to be freed?
My biggest folders are seemingly Network Service and AppData. My OS is on an SSD with 60GB, I have another 1TB SATA and a second 60GB SSD as well. If I were to create these two folders in the second SSD, and make them point there, would this cause any issues? I am trying to re-enable my pagefile because it is currently set to 16MB and I can't create a full memory dump unless I set it back to the original 8GB. I only have 4GB free on my SSD, and it is not enough. The other SSD is empty and entirely available.
I have just installed Windows 7 on my new Segate 2 TB HDD. It's running great, but when I went into computer management, I noticed about 114 GB of free space. When I tired to create a partition, Windows reports that there's isn't enough space available to complete this operation. I don't know what's wrong,[CODE]
