I have a HP Pavilion g series laptop. There is a little box that pops up and says "HP Tools drive e is running out of space click here to see if you can free up some space". My recycle bin is empty. When I click on the box its shows me drive e. Drive E mostly consists of a folder name Hewlett Packard that has a bunch of **** in it that I cant even open.
C drive is showing "space free 1.49GB of 19.5GB" whereas when I'm selecting all the files inside C drive its showing 16.7GB on disk. So C drive has 2.8GB free, But showing only 1.47GB free. Where is the space allocated?
Last night I noticed it had turned the bar to red, and said I had only 12 GB left of 135 GB. Im not into video, music, games or anything else I know of that would use that much space. I surf the web, and keep some scanned and some text documents. A few months ago I carefully installed Windows 7, instead of Vista which my PC came with. No problems. I just now deleted the old Windows stuff, and that freed up 47 GB, so thats good. I suspect that my hard drive was partitioned during that installation of Windows 7, and I dont know that that is necessary. Can that be undone?
I have a windows 7 system having a c drive partition of 52 GB. It shows 7 GB free disk space but all the folders(including hidden files n folders) on the drive total upto 27 GB. Plus i guess that my disk space is decreasing regularly. So wheres my missing 18 GB?
i bought a samsung 1000 gb hdd. model:HD103SJ (1000GB/7200rpm/32M) it was my primary hdd. when i bought it, had 938GB total space.I formatted n partitioned it couple times... last time when i broke all partition then it showed total 931.
I just checked my C: Drive for usage and it says that I am using 351 GB. I have 331 GB left, but I am curious as to where the usage of that amount of hard drive space is coming from. I hardly have any programs because of the clean reinstall and the current program sizes are no where near that capacity. The videos and pictures I transferred over combined it about 50 GB. Where is the rest of my disk space? I would like to clean my hard drive as much as possible. Restore points are also limited to using 10 GB as max. I have run CCleaner and Puran Defrag at least twice.
I have one more problem with my laptop this time . i have a Dell xps 15 , i re partitioned it and made my C drive of 141 GB . i installed all the required application and from the last few days i was watching the there is less space in my C drive than it should be there. i checked out the properties and found out that only 32.6 GB of disk space is utilized out of 141 so there should be around 108 GB free instead it shows me that only 92.9 gb is free .i cleared out the temp folder and there is nothing except 3-4 files which is of some Kbs . then where is the rest 15 GB gone ? is there a virus in my pc which is eating up the space ? i am really freaked out
i have a genuine windows 7 ultimate and microsoft security essential and it is updated and i scanned it and found nothing . btw there is something more , few hours ago there was 94.8 GB free , i installed a game in another drive and i removed it after 2-3 minutes coz i didn't liked it , so after un installing the game i saw there there was 93.4 GB left in my c drive again , i removed files from the temp folder but nothing happened and now there is just 92.9 gb left ! what is happening ! i am really freaked out now
I know about the immediate 'loss' of disk space owing to the two different methods of measurement. 1Tb to 931Gb - it's annoying, but I'm used to it.No, before a defrag by Fixbee I had 701Gb free, afterwards - in a matter of 2 hours - I had 537Gb. Obviously, I'm not going to use this product again, where a clean-up is obviosly a 'dirt up', but how do I undo the damage that it's caused - especially if it's not the only 'clean up' tool that might do this?
My flat mate set up a security thing called Drive Encryption for HP ProtectTools. What this does is, upon start up, before it lets you load windows, you need to enter a password and pin. Clearly, it is anoying, so he handed it to me to get rid of it. It will not uninstall, as it says it is still active, and must be deactivated. I went into services - found it - disabled it. I went into some .msc thing i saw on the HP forums, disabled it. I went into the BIOS - Disabled it. I have disabled every aspect of it, however, it will still not uninstall, and continues to ask for a password and pin prior to windows starting.
I have a problem with my uncle`s computer.. Recently, he was watching Netflix, and lost his internet connection, he said that his computer`s performance was slower than usual. I came over and checked his computer`s status, ran MalewareBytes, I found two items.. However, don`t think that this is the cause of the problem. It`s seems as if he cannot access parts of his computer, such as: Microsoft Management Counsel, Microsoft System Restore, etc. I cannot access the C: drive, or D: drive. They`re currently blank and do not allow access when clicked on. I would be more than happy to restore, but I can not use this option since there isn`t access to it. I cannot install Anti-Virus software, or uninstall programs, since there is no access to C.

My computer keeps saying it is running out of room on C drive. I don't feel like I have that much stuff on my computer. And I feel like seeing as it is a relatively new computer I shouldn't be having this problem. is there an easier way to clean out my computer then to go through every file, every picture, every song to decided if I should delete it or not?
I tried to install a .exe file (in order to support ArchiCad 12) onto my laptop (Gateway NV79). I get a message saying "Out of Disk Space -Volue 'D:'". It should be installing onto the C: drive. My D: drive is my cd/dvd drive.
I had to recover my system following an overnight system crash - don't really know what happened. Following my windows 7 re-install I started getting messages about low disk space. Looking at my disk space I have this:Recovery(C 20Mb free of 14.6Gb - nearly all of this is taken by windowsOS(D 243GB free of 284Gb - I have some downloads on there but also another copy of Windows 7Essentially my C drive, which seems to be far too small is full with Windows 7 and becoming constantly full. My D drive has all the capacity I need but isn't much use in day to day running
I am very new to all this computer stuff; please forgive my ignorance. My daughters computer crashed so she took it in and the it professionsal stated that it was her operating system and if she had the disk she could restore it. So i did, now i keep getting "recovery c disk space low" error. I have read through some of the suggestions on disk clean up but and follow the instructions but its not working. I also had two os on it so i deleted one, but still not helping.
I have a 120Gb Vertex III SSD disk on which I had 56 Gb free space space left untill the beginning of this week. Now, suddenly I seem to have lost 6 Gb. of space, without having installed any new programs. I can't make use of system recovery as on advice this item has been switched off from the beginning. What could be the matter and what can I do to recover the lost space? Are there any programs that would be advisable to transfer to my WD harddisk?
I have a solid state 80gb drive that I try to keep to a minimum. When I first built my computer (about 8 months ago), I easily had 40 gigs free.I haven't installed anything of significant size since, but my drive is slowly becoming full and I don't know why! Now I'm at the point where it's almost completely full.
I have completed my new build: i5-2500k, 8 GB RAM and a 64 GB SSD (Crucial M4).I want to install Win 7 Pro 64-bit on a partition on the SSD. I know the Win 7 64 specs say you need at least 20 GB of disk space to install. I figure I will reduce the page file to 1 GB and eliminate the hibernation file. If I do that, how much space will i need on the SSD partition?
When I want to copy files over files on my external hard disk, windows 7 keeps telling me I don't have enough disk space, but I know that when I overwrite the subdirectory that I am copying to, I'll have plent of disk space.Can I force windows to copy the files without having to delete the old subdirectory on my hard disk? Can I force windows to copy so it only copies the new file?
I have a Getac B300 laptop running W7Pro on a single partition. Through a rather bizarre mix of nostalgia and my love for sheer simplicity, I somehow got it into my head that I wanted to run an XP Pro installation on the same machine.
The next station of this (surely flawed ) thought process led me to wonder whether I could do just that with the already existing Windows 7 installation. I got around to shrinking the C: partition, which netted me some 51 gigs of free space that I figured I could use to create a new partition on which to install XPPro. So far, so good.
As you'd expect by now, simply sticking the XP CD into the DVD drive and restarting the machine just won't work: I got the "XP can't see the hard drive" message. So, armed with Google as my friend, I ended up educating myself about how to use nLite to create a copy with integrated iaahci and iastor. Problem is, Having prepared three copies already, after I start the installation sequence and the XP CD installer starts loading files, I'm ending up with the message "the file iastor.sys could not be found," even though I did make sure to include the file that I downloaded from somewhere in the integration process.
So what am I missing here? What am I doing wrong? (I know that the whole concept is "wrong," but there you have it.)
Here are some of the specs of the machine in question:
