My hard drive fills up to within 5 GB of capacity without me taking any action. I run disk check and everything is fine until the next time I turn on the computer and the disk is full again. I ran a couple of malware tools and they found nothing. When I look through the directories I cannot find any huge files. I have the hidden and system files set as viewable. The HD is 300GB and has about 35 GB of real files.
I recently cloned my 500Gb HDD to a 750 Gb drive. When I nstalled the clone it shows a capacity of 443Gb in the computer view and 687Gb in the Data Mgt view. I'm aware of the reasons for the missing 63 Gb but What I'm confused about is the missing 240 Gb between the 2 views. The clone software mfg tells me the that the Data Mgt view is correct and the clone process was successful

I purchased a new PC with Windows 7 in June 2012. It came with a Samsung optical disk containing Windows 7. I am eligible for the $14.99 USD upgrade to Windows 8.Will there be an installation disk for Windows 8 available at this price and if not, then how much more will it cost?If not, then how should I ensure that I can easily install Windows 8 after a hard disk crash? Do I have to keep my Samsung optical disk of Windows 7?

i remember, last week everything was ok and all of sudden this problem has occurred. all other drives are ok only these three are way over their own heads.
my system is
Intel Core i5-2300 email@example.com 2.79ghz,3.48 GB of RAM and windows is 32 bit/
I don't know what is my problem because is not the first time that usb external hard drive is working fine until get damage and said " it need to be formatted " and lost all the INFO because I have to format again the disk to be usefull. Also it is not the same hard disk.
about 20 minutes ago or so I did a fresh install of Windows 7 to clear up and start fresh now for some reason it isn't showing my whole harddrive capacity. I have a 250gig harddrive and right now it's only showing 112g it's a Inspiron 518 from dell if that helps. I just wanna fix it and have my full harddrive.
I got BSOD randomly after I installed windows 7 ultimatium x64 and SP1. Its typically when I open bittorrent or use a lot of CPU/RAM capacity, but also randomly. I tried to remove one RAM-stick (thought it was broken), and downloaded memtest. I still got randomly BSOD (many per day) and have to restart. I have uploaded the files (all in one .rar-file) the crashes direct to, see attachment.
I'm trying to create RAID0 with two drives. The first is 320GB and second 1TB. I know it won't be 1,32TB. The summary capacity should be 1229,5 GB (298.0 + 931.5). It asks for RAID name, RAID level, Strip Size and Capacity. Capacity is by default 596.2 GB and below is "The default value indicates the maximum capacity using the selected disks....". I hope the maximum size could be at least 1100GB. How is it possible to have available only a half of the smaller drive? I have:
GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3-B3 (BIOS version F10) Drives Samsung (320GB) and Western Digital (1.0TB) CPU: Intel Core i3-2100
I installed windows 7 on a laptop with Windows Vista 64-bit When installed, it installed on a D:drive with only 14.6 GB capacity. The C: drive was apparently allocated for the Vista OS. After reinstalling some of the applications, it has maxed out the D: drive capacity.
It looks as if it is loading the apps both on the C: and D: drives. How do I transition the default windows 7 OS to the C:drive which has 238 GB capacity? Will I need to reinstall Windows 7 to do this? Ultimately, I would like to eliminate Vista completely and only deal with Windows 7.
I have a 4gb memory stick that I have used many times to install Linux etc on old laptops etc. Now that I want to use that stick to copy off some files from Win 7, I notice that Win 7 suggests its capacity is only 1gb.I think I have seen this kind of thing happen before but cant remember how I resolved it.Anyone got ideas on how to kick-start Windows 7 into recognising its full capacity?
I'm using Windows 7 ultimate 512MB of Graphic Card Pentium 4 3.0 GHz I wanted to upgrade my RAM as high as I can. So my computer will work fast when I'm playing games or when I'm working on something else. So, what's the highest RAM I can use? By the way I'm using 1GB RAM.
I've just bought Seagate Momentus XT 500GB and installed it myself to desktop. Downloaded DiskWizard from Seagate to clone my old hard disk into the new one.
Problem: How do I boot from the new hard disk? I still got my old hard disk on my computer, I'm trying to use it as extra storage, but it's still booting from the old C drive. How do I change it to boot from my new hard disk?
i installed windows 7 recently then after some while i did that "system rating" thing. right clicking on "computer" - "properties" - then there's "manufacturer" "model" then "rating" in the "system" section. while doing that power went off, because i didn't have the battery on and the charger got unplugged. i restarted the laptop and a message came up telling me that "operating system not found". so i decided to re-install windows 7. then after a while a message came up telling me that there is no hard disk installed. and press f3 to restart
Windows 7 64bit has popped up saying it has detected a HDD problem, I need to back up my files immediately. I installed a new 2TB HDD (Samsung HD204UI) a couple of months ago, surely it shouldn't be failing already? This is my secondery disk. Is this by any chance a malware or virsus playing tricks on me?
i accidentally wiped my hard drive and recovery partion on an HP Pavillion G6 laptop running a 500 Gig seagate hard drive and now it will not recognize the drive.i can not format it or do anything please help.
I am confused about how much I should keep the partition in my new laptop, the reason is, I feel that disk partition do affects the system speed, I do not know whether I am correct or not. I have a 700 GB hard disk presently with Win-7 Installed, I do not know how to do the partition when windows is installed, during installation I was unable to do the partition because 'new' button was disable.I hope there is some way to do the partition after installing win-7. Please help tell the way to do the partition, also tell how many partition is optimum with what size.
first it cannot load BCD, so i try to rebuild it, but nothings happen, next is I reformat may hdd, yes, win 7 installed fluently, but after I restart it won't continue on loading the windows, and restart the system automatically, after that it boot on repair, and it detects sector error on hard disk, then I let system repair to do it, after that it restart the system and boot again to system repair, and it was a loop...I already re installed by OS thrice.
