Preferred Solution: Change HDD space to RAM?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I only have 5GBs left (of 74.9) despite having moved all my documents and pictures onto the second drive and also an external one. It has filled itself up somehow and I don't even have that many programmes.

I'm now on a critical-looking red status

A:How do I change HDD space used on the Vista C drive?

Hi

I assume you want to decrease the C partition and want to add the free space to the second D partition. Right?

In such case you will need to use an 3rd party software like for example: *GParted*

I recommend searching in the internet for this application.
Its freeware and very nice.

I just received a Lenovo 160GB warranty replacement drive, installed the drive and restored my most current Acronis image. The drive that was replaced was 100GB, thus the restored Acronis image was ~96GB C drive.

The attached Acronis Disk Director screen shot shows the difference between the restored C area versus the available drive space as unallocated.

From previous conversations on the forum I have a boot CD burned with Magic Partition Manager (not used thus far).

Before I boot the computer with the MPM CD would someone give me a bit of reassurance that there will be a clear MPM option to convert the currently unallocated space to allocated and then either merge the two spaces or have the currently active space increase in size subsuming that space which is currently unallocated?

Thanks,

Mark

A:Change Unallocated to useable space

mark, are you able to successfully boot into windows? maybe reboot a couple of times to check? If yes, you can definitely format the unallocated space to create a new partition or extend the existing C: partition to use that space. Just remember you have some unallocated space to the left of C: as well - to extend C: into that you'll need a 3rd party partition manager (windows cant do it natively). I don't know about MPM but if that doesn't work you can always use Partition wizard.

Hello,
I guess this is general for most Toshiba laptops. I can't find a solution to prevent FN+SPACE to change the resolution. As language is changed by WIN+SPACE, hitting accidentalyy FN instead of WIN is really annoying moreover it rearranges all the desctop icons.

Anyone with a solution to this:
- just stop the combination
- or configure the list of resolutions to have one entry so it doesn't change at all
- anything else?

Hi
Is there a possibility to change space between icons in windows explorer. I wanted to make it shorter, like in Windows XP. Can you help? I added an imge to show what space I think about.

A:Change space between icons in Windows Explorer

Hello Yaroray, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You should be able to use the Advanced Apearance settings to adjust this. Adjusting the Icon Spacing (horizontal) and Icon Spacing (vertical) item's size should do it.

Those changes are made by the third-party theme you have installed. Go to the website where you downloaded said theme, and you may find a utility and/or instructions on how to change it or create your own.

One other thing, isn't it harder to use Windows Explorer when it's using Aero Glass across the entire window? I've never really understood why people take a perfectly good product and [INSERT COLORFUL EXPLETIVE HERE] rendering it almost unusable....

Hello,

I have been having some trouble lately with my home computer, every so often the Pc will crash with a blue screen, with white text saying that a physical memory dump bios is being completed or something like that, i turn it off then back on again and it works fine, however each time this happens my free space on my hard drive reduces!

Sometimes i will have the correct amount which should be something like 123gb free, but sometimes i turn it on and check and i only have 4gb or so free? could something have become dissconnected or something like that? the pc itself works fine but it just seems to crash when i am either trying to load too much at once, or most of the time this occurs when i am unplugging my wireless adapter, or even repairing the connection which does close quite regularly.

Any ideas?

I have a toshiba laptop running windows 8. I recently bought a seagate 2TB external hard drive. I was going to use it for a recovery drive for the laptop os and backup for my files. when i ran the setup to put a recovery partition on the drive, its now all i see. the laptop doesnt recognize it as a 2TB drive anymore. it just see it as a 32GB recovery drive. what can i do to restore it. I wanted to have recovery and a personal file back up.
 

A:Solved: external drive space change

A Recovery Drive is suppose to be made on a dedicated USB drive, and it really should be a USB key/thumb drive as it doesn't need the capacity of an entire hard drive.

You can however use the drive for backups using File History or System Image Backup.

You can go to Disk Management and delete all partitions off the drive and then create a new partition that's the full size of the drive.

Hi,

I was wondering, is it possible to change the minimum diskspace requirement for the Windows Vista Home Premium installation? I.e. Normally, Vista requires about 15GB for an installation, but my full vLite installation of Vista HP only needs a total of about 4,2 GB with a 1.3 GB pagefile included, so I want to resize my partition to about 8-10GB so I have the remaining space available for my other partitions.

Anyone a clue?

TIA

No. The minimum disk space requirements include both temp space used during installation, and the final installation space used. After that, you ned to factor in "after the fact" space, such as index catalogs, thumbnail caches and program installations, amongst others. If you are planning on only using a 8 - 10 GB partition for Windows Vista, then you're planning on increasing your blood pressure.

The smallest partition I'd recommend is 80GB, but I've installed Vista for people on drives as small as 40GB without ill effect.

You could check System Restore to see if it is saving copies of the videos or is it possible that some other program is saving backup copies of all your files.

System Restore,by the way is set by default to use 12% of your harddrive for restore points.

Following the directions outlined in Change Directory in Command Prompt including enabling command extensions outlined in Command Line does not permit the CD command to change the directory focus to a directory with a space in its name.

The error I get is "The system cannot find the path specified." My goal is to get a directory tree (as a file) of the directories and files in My Documents with the DIR command when in that directory.

How do I put the hard drive space used and free space on the Partition C: ? Partition D:\ and Partition E:\ has it but for some reason drive C:\ is missing it doesn't say how much space is used and how much space is free. The GBs are missing

A:How to bring back the amount of free space and used space on a hard drive

I'm a little confused about your question

You can't see how much drive space you have left when viewing your C drive via My Computer, or similar?

If you right-click on My Computer and select Manage, when the new window pops up click on Disk Management from the left hand side. What does that tell you about C drive? Assuming your C drive is actually a hard drive (and not a CD drive or something, though I have never heard of this happening and don't even know if it's possible to have C as your CD drive), you should see details at the top of the screen such as how much space you have left, by percentage of total capacity, as well as GB

Hi I have a HP pavilion g6 laptop on windows 7 home premium. A few weeks ago the space bar enter back space and up and down arrow keys stopped responding whilst I was typing on face book. I shut the laptop down, this did not work. I checked the filter and sticky keys weren't on , I put them on then unchecked them to clear. This did not work. I went on the HP help site where they suggested I take the battery off and hold the on button for 60 seconds then power back up. I did this and to my surprise it worked. Great I thought. But just a couple of days ago the same keys stopped responding again. I tried the same fix but this time nothing.
Can anyone help.... Is this a common fault ? I need the keys to work again ASAP.

This morning a new Adobe Flash update has appeared, KB3079777. The update is sized at 17.9mb. Nothing is running on the PC, its idle and with no disk activity. Free space is 55.4GB. I apply the update and free space immediately falls to 54.9gb. This behaviour is consistent with every such patch applied. Now over time, that space will return which suggests that something else is going on here. But what ?

Also did chckdsk /f which give me 0 errors, tried to search in hidden and OS files, but there arent any big files, diskcleanup with system files cleaned about 1 gb.
Then I downloaded winDirStat which shoved me that I only have 43Gb of data on my c: drive. I don't have any ideas what could be done to increase free disk space. Please help

A:Windows show low disk space, win dir stat shows different space

In My Computer, click the Tools menu then on Folder Options then click the View tab and tick "Show hidden files and folders" then untick "Hide protected system files and folders", click Apply and OK.

Then, go into c:\ windows and delete all the files in blue which statr with a $ symbol. They are only folders that once contained Windows Updates you no longer need to keep. Then scroll down to the Software Distribution folder and to Download. Empty that folder.

Look in Control Panel>Power options and make sure Hibernation is turned off then in System, adjust the size of System Restore so it takes up only 4% of the disk space.

Restart the computer and see hwo much space you freed up.

Hi, I've noticed sometimes that the Free Space on my harddrives won't reflect changes I've made. For example, on my 28.6gb F: drive, I had about 586mb free. I just deleted a video file of about 700 mb, so it should be up to about 1.2 gb. Oddly enough, its still at 586mb. I emptied the recycle bin of course.

Is there a way to recalculate disc space? I have Windows XP and I do have Norton System Works. This isn't the first time disc space hasn't matched recent actions. Thanks in advance.
 

A:Free Space inaccuracies?? Calculating disc space?

If the video wasn't in My Docs then 'System Restore' in XP may have recorded the change to enable a future restore. To record a 700mb deletion that it may be asked to restore back takes 700mb.
System restore ignores the My Docs folder so the above is irrelevant if the video was deleted from that location.

 I have a computer that has their "c: drive" almost full (221 gb drive). Every time it boots a message comes up saying "Windows created a temporary paging file on your computer because of a problem that occurred with your paging file configuration when you started your computer. The total paging file size for all disk drives may be somewhat larger than the size you specified." So first I tried adjusting the Virtual Memory BUT, I only have a drive C and a previous drive that is no longer there. So I am not for sure what drive to set my virtual memory to because there is not enough space on C drive with it being almost completely full and the one drive is non-existent. I am sure its a easy fix and im missing a step but i appreciate the help guys   Thanks!

A:Low Disk Space "Temporary File Space Error"

I would type Run in the search box. Start it and then in the Run box type %temp%. This will open up the temp folder for the current user. These files are safe to delete. Log in to every other user and use the same command. Once those are deleted, use Ccleaner to clear all the browser cache then set the Paging file to 1.5 times the RAM on the system.

Hi

We just placed a new Dell Dimension. It has a 40 Gig hard drive.

User keeps getting this message:

DISK FREE SPACE HAS DROPPED BELOW THE MINIMUM THRESHOLD. FREE UP SPACE ON YOUR HARD DISK DRIVE BY:

1. BACKING UP YOUR DATA TO A TAPE BACKUP, ZIP OR NETWORK DRIVE
2. DELETE UNUSED FILES

IF YOU ARE UNSURE WHICH FILES ARE SAFE TO MOVE OR DELETE, CONTACT YOUR HELP DESK OR CONSULT YOUR SOFTWARE MANUALS.

This machine has over 30 gigs of free space. It's impossible that there is a disk space issue.

Any ideas what could be causing this? Some sort of mis-communication or setting?

Thanks
 

A:Disk Space Error - 30 Gigs free space

It should be a configuration setting. I'd call Dell if you just got this machine. Their "english" is a little suspect though. It sounds like some hokey Dell software reminding you to back up your drive. When does the message appear? After it boots?

I think you need to allocate the free space as a linux swap partition and format it as such.

Hey guys,
I'm having a big problem with my hard drive space. First of all it keeps decreasing for no apparent reason when i am connected to the internet even though i'm not downloading anything. And i'm not talking about mb but GB!! My first guess was a vius so i ran my antivirus (avast) and removed some issues, but the trouble continues... I installed the WinDirStas as i saw in other posts to find if i missed something. And to my surprise i discovered that my HD is occupied by ~80GB of unaccessible files! I'm not sure i am saying that correctly so see for yourselves...

Hi,

I went to a lot of trouble to consolidate the 100 mb (BCD/bitlocker etc) partition that Win7 unexpectedly created when I installed 7 some months ago.

Since then I've configured a 7/XP as multi-boot system and thought it was stable. C: stored 7, D: stored XP, and there were 2 additional partitions.

Tonight Partition Wizard (bootable) tells me there is an unallocated 7.84 mb logical partition occupying sectors 0-16064. Neither 7 nor XP reports the existence of this space.

Definite details about the origin of such a storage mystery would be much appreciated.

Thx,

You can only shrink something as far as you can shrink it, you know? Try defragging and then attempting a shrink again?

It's likely because X amount of data is being taken up, and some of it is here, some of it is there, and the space between probably can't be used. Don't take my word for it right off the bat, but that makes the most sense to me.

Hello, was wondering if anyone could tell me with this, it seems almost 85gb of my hard drive space is being used up by recovery and I am starting to need the extra space in my C drive, is this possible?
Thanks in advance

A:Can I Take Space From Recovery Partition for More Space in (C:) Drive?

As a general rule, if you already ran off the manufacturer recovery discs, you can then delete the recovery partition, create another in the unallocated space and use it to store your data.

You probably won't be bsle to do it with windows tools.

This free program should do the job:

I have a Cannon HD video recorder. I upload from the camcorder to xp with ImageMixer 3 software. this works fine. The problem is when I try to burn a disc I get an error that says "Insufficient work space. In the Preferences, set a rive with enough space as the work space. More than 5.4GB is needed". The workspace is my TEMP folder on my hard drive, sounds like I need to increase the available space for this folder. Does anyone know how to do this?

A:Trouble with not enough space in work space

The TEMP folder is able to use all the available free space on that partition without you having to do anything, so perhaps you just don't have sufficient free space on that partition?

If you are sure you have sufficient free space, create a new folder and set that as the default in ImageMixer's options settings.

So a clients computer would not allow it her to save anything on the pc. I checked the hard drive and it showed 0 available space and 0 free space. The hd was not accesible. I attempted to get into windows utilities but i would get an error saying the rersource was on an unavailable network. I thought it was a damaged hard drive bit the check disk showed no errors. Safe mode showed the hard drive had space and was accesible. I ended up factory restoring the pc. Has anyone encountered this issue. I have a suspicion it could be a new virus.

Hi! I used to be able to burn CDs without any problem...for some reason it doesn't work anymore and I've tried quite a few things after troubleshooting by searching for solutions on-line. When I insert my CD which already has a few files on it, the details shows that there is no free space but yet only 3.43MB of data on it (it should go up to 700MB). I'm therefore unable to burn more data and I've tried the same with a blank CD, it says the same (no free space even though there is nothing on the CD yet). I have already tried uninstalling the driver and it didn't fix the problem. When I right-click Properties for the drive and go to Recording tab, the 'enable CD recording on this device' is checked as it should be. Can someone point me in the right direction? THANK YOU

We could use a screen shot of the drive D partition but probably your backups are stored there and you can delete the oldest to free up some space. Make sure you have another before you delete it. That partition is tiny bTW 9 gigs is way too small to be effective.

My NTFS non-system partition is now almost well defragmented. However this applies only to small and medium sized files.

There are still approx 40 big files (> 1 GB) which cannot be defragmented because there is no free single (!) space slot where they fit in.

So I need a way to shift all occupied clusters to get free contigous space on my hard disk.
Currently about 150 GB is be free on my partition but divided into thousand of individual chunks.

I tried now half a dozend of defragmenters.
Sad but true: NO (!) one was able to perform this easy operation.

Can someone recommend me a real defragmenter which is able to perform such a "shift" operation?

Thank you
Peter

A:How to shift all free space on hard disk to get contigous free space?

I'm not sure exactly what you have and exactly what you are trying to do.

I personally use Windows 7 built in defrag and have found nothing better.

Windows 7 will put things like Windows 7 wants and needs things put.
The Windows 7 defrag or 3rd party defrag programs doesn't care where you want things put or what order you want them.

As far as I know you will have no control over such things.
You are obviously using a 3rd party defrag tool because you are watching the little colored squares and noticing what looks like free spaces between things. Why things are defragged in the fashion they are I really don't know.
What I do know is Windows 7 defrag put things in the order that Windows 7 wants them and that is what counts.

Hey guys, quick question. I just allocated more space to my system restore to ensure that when i back up files/docs there will be sufficient space. But does the allocated space for system restore affect at all how much space is allocated for backup? If not, i will would like to turn back down the allocated space for the restore. Dont want too many restore points Thanks alot for the input!

A:Does allocated space for sys restore affect allocated space for backup

System restore data is kept on your primary partition, backup data would need to be stored on another partition or better still - another drive, so the answer is no.... but that said if you're asking will the space allocated for System Restore affect drive imaging backups, then the answer is it will increase the size of the backup images...

That said, why would you need to operate both System Restore and Drive Imaging?

A:External display settings change when Power options change?

Check to see what resolution your laptop's display is at, what the external TV resolution is when you connect it to your laptop, and MAYBE what resolution the videos you're watching are. This just sounds like a resolution issue. If the TV is at a larger resolution than your laptop's resolution, change the TV's resolution to the size your laptop is at. Then try watching a video to see what happens. Hope this helps.

Trying to set up a FP monitor, and in the process I tried changing the bios setting from onboard AGP (flat panel wasn't working with this, had to add another video adapter card) to PCI, thinking I could change it back if ineffective. But now my display on the monitor that WAS working is black, so I can't undo my mistake.

How to undo damage??
Thanks.
 

A:bios change, now can't view monitor to change back

If you remove the battery on the mothernoard
for a minute or two, the BIOS loses it's
current settings and goes back to the defaults
that will work on any system. You'll have to
let it auto-detect hard drives and everything.

hello, i have a 9800gt that gives a very low fps on crysis, i went to the shop from where i purchased it and they said that you need to change your power supply, currently its 230watt, i was thinking that i should replace my card with another one as mine does not have a six pin supplementary power connector. so my question is that should i change my psu first or should i switch my card first?
 

A:Should i change my power supply or should i change my graphics card?

your running a 9800gt on a 230W PSU!? not sure how your doing that without it shutting down as soon as you start a game. the 9800gt needs a 450W psu with 24A on the 12v rail (s). change the PSU. you are fortunate that you haven't overstressed the 230W psu and destroyed the rest of the system.

Hello Kechik Crew, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to undo and fix this quickly.

hi.which button to press to get out of standby (as none seems to work)and can i change it to mouse.

plus...on my other pc when shuting down i have 3 windows....standby...turn off..restart..on this one i have got to open a menu and pick (which i have to change each time i want it to do different)same as when starting up with my name/password(two boxes)instead of just a simple one(password) as in my other.
 

A:Solved: which key to press out of standby-can i change it...how do i change log in

Change the key used to wake up your machine in the system BIOS setup. You often have a choice of space-bar or mouse-click, but choosing space-bar on my machine allows any key to work. Look under "Wake on..." settings.

Or, give details of your machine if you are unable to find it.

Hi all,

I installed BSPlayer, didn't like it, and decided to go back to using Divx player.
I have all the file associations sorted so all my video files run in Divx again, but the icons are still the same as they were for the BSPlayer.

I know its not a really big problem, but its annoying!!

Any help?

Matt.
 

A:Annoying icon change... change back?

In explorer try...
Tools > Folder options >File types >select the file extension you want to change the icon for then click on the Advanced button, then click on the Change Icon button.
See if the icon you want to use is there.

You can go to Crucial and let them scan your computer and they will tell you how much
memory your computer should have.
http://crucial.com/#
You should buy your memory from the manufacturer of your computer.

I everyone I am a newbie to the forums. I was installing some new font packages the other day for photoshop and all of a sudden the font within some of my programs is now unreadable (looks like Tekton Pro, but very hard to read). I googled how to change font in windows 8 and was only able to change:
CaptionFont
IconFont
MenuFont
MessageFont
StatusFont

I changed all of these, but it did not change the font that is not readable! I have noticed that when I log into Facebook, the search bar font is also unreadable...

Does anyone know how to fix this?!

I recently cleaned my computer with CCleaner and then shortly after, I got this message saying ' You are running very low on disk space on C:. To free space on this drive by deleting old or unnecessary files, click here.'
I'm confused. What I just did was supposed to HELP increase disk space, not to decrease it.
Any help is appreciated!

I'm asking this for someone else.

Drive C total capacity is around 24GB, when selecting all files in C:, it shows 12GB used, but only 2GB is left in free space. What's wrong?
