I am so tired of receiving Low Disk Space on recovery (D). I have done everything it asked. Empty Recycle Bin which is EMPTY. I am not a computer wizard but it seems unfair that I have pay over $150.00 year to correct this problem once a year. I have checked a lot of places and it just keeps telling me the same thing. That doesn't work.
I am using a HP Pavilion g7-1277dx Notebook PC Model:QE308UA with Windows 7. For some reason, my backups are being saved to the HP_Tools partition and I can't seem to change it. As a result, a window keeps popping up that says Low Disk Space.
Last couple days, I have been getting the error msg: " HP TOOLS Drive E: running out of space... " then something about pls CLICK here to find out the free up some space... I click and the only thing listed is the RECYCLE BIN which is empty...
I performed a system recovery to factory settings that resulted in my Disk space being distributed differently than before. I have a lot of unallocated space as you can see bellow. I need to know how to fix and how to prevent this from happening the next time I perform a recovery. Also, is it normal for the RECOVERY (D) partition to show multiple times in Disk Management ?
I have a HP 15 Notebook PC with no dvd drive recently I was sent the system recovery cds from HP. I dont have an external dvd drive. What i do have is a Toshiba Satelight laptop with Widows 7 and a good dvd drive. Also I have a 500 GB external hard drive. I was thinking maybe I could copy the disks onto the external harddrive with the Toshiba dvd drive. Then attach the external hard drive to my HP 15 Notebook by usb port and install Hp recovey disks from the external hard drive.
The disk drive seems to be working fine, it opens and closes and runs. But when I put a CD in it, nothing happens. At first I thought I might've accidentally disabled autoplay but it was running, and on further inspection I noticed that the disk drive doesn't show up at all in 'This PC'. No matter where I look on the computer, I've checked all the drives and it seems to be missing everywhere, it's like it doesn't exist.
Specs: Name: HP Pavilion 14 Notebook PC Operating System:Windows 8.1 64-bit
I have an HP Pavillion dm4. My hard drive died so I installed a new hard drive. The original OS installed on the computer was Windows 7. I did not get a Windows 7 disk with the computer. If I order the Windows 7 recovery disk from HP, will it install Windows 7 on my new hard drive? I have the COA info.
I have a acer aspire 5050 laptop/notebook and everytime I try to watch a video on youtube or just search the internet, it's slow and the words "low disk space" pops up. I click the button that is suppose to clean the files but when it's done the words "low disk space" pops up again. Can you help me with this problem?
I've opened the my computer and I see Acer (C) It has 0% free space. Underneath acer (C) it says 8.35 MB free of 33.5 GB. I also see Data (D) underneath data d I see 33.1 GB free of 33.2 GB. The last thing I see is something that says unspecified, and underneath it it says DVD RW Drive (E). I don't know what to do next.
I have a Lenovo 3000 N200. I have 143GB hard drive and only 4GB free space left. I viewed the properties of all the main root folders in the C: Drive and they add up to 65GB so why does it say that i have used 139GB?
The size of the main folders are as follows
Folder Size GB drivers 0.0054 i ntel 0.00232 my music 1.87 program files 4.45 swshare 0.282 swtool 3.11 users 40.3 windows 15.1 Total 65.11972
I checked my backups and one is 40GB in size so i tried to delete it but i got a message saying i do not have enough disk space to perform the operation.Even with this there should still be approx 40GB free disk space. What is taking up so much disk space? Is there a large log file running?i cant find it if there is. How can i delete my backup ? I have tried defragmenting the disk too...
I've created a Factory Default Backup with a USB drive with Acer Recovery Management. I see this message which tells me I can delete the recovery partion to free up disk space after I've created the backup but it never gives me the option to do so.
I DO get the option to remove the Driver Recovery Partition after backing it up to USB but not the 10GB Recovery Partition. It's a a HUGE deal on a system that only has a 32GB hard drive.
I have a VAIO VGN-AW21Z with a small solid state C Drive which is becoming megga full and in the red So I need to take action and uninstall some of the pre-loaded crap.
Have been down the list and removed all the things I feel confident about but there are some other large files there which I am unsure about and hope some of you can tell me what they do. As I only use my lappie to process photos using Adobe PS, a bit of iTunes, web browsing and emailing........ so I don't need any other specialist type stuff (gaming or producing videos etc).
The following list are what I would like to remove if I knew it is safe to do so.
What do they do? Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard (759mb) VAIO BD Menu data (969mb) VAIO DVD Menu Data Basic (543mb) VAIO Wallpaper Contents (134mb) WinDVD BD for VAIO (113mb)
ALSO this machine runs on VISTA and I heard that Windows 7 is a far smaller file. Is it possible to upgrade to 7 and to delete Vista? That might make a huge difference if it is possible?
I purchased a VGN-SR430J/B and I cleaned it with killdisk and installed windows 7 32bit.
This model comes with a 320GB HDD, yet when I go to my computer it says that I have 273GB free of 287GB total. So I assume the 14GB (287-273) being used is somehow the 2.5 GB Windows 7 32bit. But 320 - 287 is 33GB, where did it go? Where can I look?
I am puzzled to see that part of my 320 gb 7200 drive is not recognized. A right click on C drive states that I have 282 GB left out of 297GB. I do not want to move forward with my install before accounting for this space. So...anyone have any advice?
As I have a Dell Studio XPS 1640 it has a a few of Dell specific driver I must install or I wil not have certain features. I am not thinking dock here. Bios ,chipset, IDT Sc. Windows grabbed the latest driver for the Radeon 3670 but not the Catalyst SW. Nor would I want it to. Has anyone dl'd the latest Catalyst suite? Any fellow xps owners out there test driven Dell's drivers on Win 7 pro yet?
I have had my dv5t 6 days. Every time I check, there is less and less space and I am doing nothing really but surfing and e-mailing, and trying to get the TV tuner to work right. lLast night there was 177GB free, shut it down and went to bed. Checked it after a half hour or so this morning and there was 175 GB, now here I sit in the library and I just checked it again after e-mailing and downloading a 2mb file, and there is 173 GB free. I haven't even begun to use it. Juse a few days ago there was 183.
I've got a TZ-195 which is about two years old. It has a 48gig SSD drive which was just too small to accomodate data plus a biggish .pst file for using Outlook offline. I bought a TT-190 with a 128gig drive which solved the problem, and left the TZ lying around.
Now the TT is on the fritz (won't boot up) and I want to revive the TZ so I can use it while the TT is being fixed.
What is the best way to expand the storage space?
1. Swap out the SSD drive for a bigger one.
2. Plug in a 32gig ExpressCard drive.
3. Install a Mini PCI Express drive (like from an eee) in the one empty Mini PCI slot.
Easiest and cheapest by far is Option 2. But I am thinking this is going to have a very slow data transfer rate? The Express Card standard allows either USB or PCI bus to be used, but as far as I know the ExpressCard SSD drives all use the slower USB bus. Or will it not be enough to make a difference, given that all my programs will be on the main hard drive?
I'm having a problem with my SR290. The hard drive free space keeps on decreasing. Its fallen from 200 to 175gb, and I haven't installed any new programs. Is this somehow related to Vista Business and does anyone have a solution?
this laptop fixer i had met extended my D: (HP RECOVERY) drive by a lot and i shrank it 10 gb. now the 10 gb of unallocated space is located beside D: to the right problem is C: is to the left of D: which means i can not extend C: to gain those 10 gb because D: is in the way...
my physical drive is as follows SYSTEM, C:, D:, unallocated space (10gb), and HP TOOLS
I originally purchased my E1705 with a 60GB 7200RPM drive. I believe at the time it was mainly to save a few bucks and that the largest 7200RPM available may have been around 120GB and added $200 to the price of the machine.
I am constantly finding myself uninstalling applications and looking for things to delete to save space on this tiny little drive, it has gotten to the point that it is a hassle. I recently moved my music library to an external USB drive to free up about 20GB only to fill it again right away by installing Visual Studio 2008 and the MSDN Library.
I need more drive space!
I know there are a ton of options out there for drives which I can easily swap right into this machine but I am having a tough time trying to decide if I am willing to sacrifice the added speed of a 7200RPM drive for the additional space offered by the largest of the 2.5" drives.
I use this machine for everything, it is my primary computer so having the fastest available options is desirable. I frequently render digital video for the creation of DVDs and believe it or not I perform this function currently on external USB drives because of the space issues. Having th space to move this to the primary drive with the full speed interface will be a big plus.
So you can see this is a wee bit over 135 GB. Where in the world is the rest of the space? Here's what I've looked at / done so far:
"System Protection" is turned on and is currently using 10.48 GB. I have the max set at 3% (13.59 GB). There are currently 3 saved restore points. --> EDIT now it says it's using 5.97 GB and there are only two restore points now.I've run "Disk Cleanup" and it says I could regain 33.6 MB. Whoo-whooooo!The disk was 1% fragmented so I ran defrag.I ran the error checking tool on the drive and it said there were no errors on the drive. Now, after finishing the defrag, I've lost more space "as we speak"20.4 GB available of 452 GBApps: 31.4 MBPictures: 76.1 GBVideos: 137 MBMusic: 20.9 GBDocuments: 8.14 GBDownloads: 0 bytesRecycle bin: 0 bytes
FYI: When I go to Lenovo Solution Center and click on Support and then go to Configuration History, the calender there shows the yellow triangle with the exclamation point in it for "System Events" on every single day that I use the laptop. When I click on one of those days, it shows multiple "Application Errors". This has been going on since the day I got it. I don't know if there is a log somewhere that is spiraling out of control.
I forgot to say I use Kaspersky Pure 3.0 for virus software and I have it performing a Full Scan, a Vulnerability scan and a Critical Areas scan every day. I also scanned the drive with Malware Bytes and it did not find any malware. Also I am running Win 8.1 - it came that way from Lenovo.
My hard drive is partitioned C:58.5Gig, D:397Gig.The C drive quickly filled up with programs. I have 100% of my files/photos/music on the D drive and have 346 gig free on D. Is there a way to increase the C alllocation as it is generally full and bogs things down.
I own a Pavilion dv6-7135nr Entertainment PC, running Windows 7. I notice a lot of exclamation marks ! hovering over my question mark from HP Support Assistant. I go there and since I cannot copy and paste it, I will have to type it all out here.
One is for updates, but I see that it did a last check for updates on 6/16/14 and next one scheduled for 6/23/14 and no updates available.I do not see the other message but had to do with backing up my data because I am running low on data space. Nope. I went to My Computer and my C drive is showing: 615 GB free of 676 GB.
