Disk Space Error - 30 Gigs free space

Q: Disk Space Error - 30 Gigs free space

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

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.)

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?

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.

Am I the only one to notice and complain over this in W8.1.

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 ?

A:Free disk space & space used by a single Flash Update.

Looks like it is just me then. Today brought a 4.6Mb W8.1>W10 computability update. My free space changed from 55.2Gb to 54.7Gb.

Sounds about right. Ho hum....

Hi everyone,

I'm writing because, I had about 2 or 4 gigs free space on drive D so I moved 15.7 Gb to drive C and immediately restarted. I didn't install anything, but instead of finding around 18+ gigs free upon restarting, I found I had 10.7 Gigs I double checked the moved folder and it still is 15.7 and this makes no sense to me.

I only restarted because I just uninstalled steam which I hadn't even used yet. I have not installed anything. AVG antivirus free can't find anything and drive D is apparently 1% fragmented. Does anyone have any tips. It would be greatly appreciated. I suspect this isn't the only free space missing.

Thanks for reading,
Lloyd

I think what is happening is that you have the same large hard drive named as different folders and search is indexing the entire drive multiple times

otherwise

Hi.

I don't know but gigabytes (on my HDDs) seem to be disappearing. I had just over 200 gigs of available space on one of my drives just a couple of days prior to downloading a game (60 gigs). I look at the drive after the download and it showed 98 Gigs of available space left! How? Where did those other 40+ gigs go?

Just minutes ago I hooked up my 3rd internal HDD (just for a short period). My second drive (different from the one mentioned above) showed 147 Gigs available just before I hooked up the 3rd HDD then immediately after that (after I rebooted my PC) it showed 140 Gigs! So, 7 gigs just disappeared right after hooking up my 3rd drive. I'm talking within minutes. Didn't do anything other than hooking up another HDD. What's happening here? I'm looking at all the stuff that's installed but things just don't add up.

Any idea?

Hi and welcome

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.

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.

OK, I have run out of ideas and things to check. I have a 90gb hard drive (internal), it's got about 45gb free. I have defragged, I have deleted tons of temp files, and other files, etc. Still I cannot save or move a 190 KB sized file. I keep getting 'not enough free space on the disk' message.

This is already an NTFS device, and the file doesn't exceed a fat32 size anyway, so that's not the issue I am facing.

I have closed down all programs, except the app I am using to try to create and then save this file (it's like Microsoft Office, plain text or excel file format just using Sun's StarOffice instead), I have rebooted numerous times all to no avail.

Anybody have any other ideas on why I am still getting this message and cannot save any files?? Any help or info greatly appreciated.

A:Accidentally Installed Paralel Versions Of Winxp Os And Lost 90 Gigs Of Hard Disk Space

Reboot with the cd into the installation of windows xp, and when it says what partition youd like to install it to. Delete both partitions, and create one. Or if your drive isnt partitioned, just format the drive.

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

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

Hello and help
I am attempting to install some new software and am getting the notice that I do not have enough disk space required for the installation. My C drive shows 31G available 597 MB required for this software 1340 MB.
Can someone tell me how to free up disk space? Do I need to delete word documents? Thanks in advance.
 

A:How to free up disk space

Run Disk Cleanup (Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup. Check the boxes for items you want to cleanup. Also click the More Otions tab and remove old System Restore points and applications you don't use.

If you use Internet Explorer open Tools > Internet Options, and on the General tab clear History and Delete Cookies (caution: this will delete website logon passwords too, so make sure you know them).

If you have installed several Microsoft updates and don't plan to uninstall them, you can safely delete all C:\Windows\$NtUninstallKBxxxxxx$ folders.

Delete all files and folders within C:\Temp, C:\Windows\Temp, C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Local Settings\Temp (some may refuse to delete).

Disable Hibernation and delete C:\hiberfil.sys.

Right-click each drive icon and then click Properties. What's listed for the size and the amount of free space?

--------------------------------------------------------------

Newer computers come with the hard drive in 2 partitions. The C partition is the main partition and contains the operating system and programs. The D partition is much smaller and is the recovery partition that contains the files for doing a system recovery back to original factory specs.

2) I see a "hiberfil.sys" in the root C, size 25.5GB, but I never use hibernation (I think I have it disabled). Can I shrink this file size somehow?
3) I see inside the C:\Windows\LiveKernelReports a Winsock*.dmp file size 3.46GB, is it necessary?

My Sony VAIO RZ40 has drives C and D. Drive C is so full that Defragger will not work.

I have deleted Microsoft Word from drive C (planning to reinstall on drive D) but Properties in drive C does not show any reduction in space used.

In addition to Defragger not working, when I choose Disk Cleanup it runs for hours and never does its job.

What have I done wrong?

How did you delete Microsoft Word?

You should have used Add/Remove from the Control Panel.

Delete you Internet files, which should free up a lot of disk space.

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.

A:Free Up Disk Space After nothing worked

You say you have only 25 GB devoted to C.

I assume your hard drive is larger than that and that you have some other partitions.

Why can't you steal space from those other partitions and add it to C?

A screen shot of Windows Disk Management might help.

A:Can't free up any space on Local Disk (C:)

Can you post a screenshot from Disk Management?You can use a tool to see what takes up so much space on your hard drive/partition. One such tool is TreeSize Pro Trial - http://www.jam-software.com/treesize/.You are correct in thinking that files deleted which go into the Recycle Bin...are gone once the Recycle Bin has been emptied. But...there are various programs and functions which also may use up hard drive space.There is also the possibility that some malware item is at work on your system...that's why an analysis of what is taking up space is important.Louis

I ran jdisk report, that reports 93.9 gb used, windows reports 131 gb used, a big difference. 93 is the "normal" range for c drive. is windows reporting the wrong free space? what can I do to correct this? see attached screenshot.

A:free disk space issue

Hi Sylveon Fetish Is it possible for you to use WinDirStat instead to see how much space is taken on your drive and where is that space being taken? Will be much more efficient than jDisk Report. Also, if you can add a screenshot of the whole WinDirStat window once it's done calculating, it would help.

I've rebooted, and I am sure there is more than 4GB free on the hard drive. Any ideas? Is there some max size for a file that you can transfer to a hard drive? I've never heard of that.. but I guess anything is possible.

I'm not seeing any update pending on Windows Update so I've downloaded the update assistant tool from MS to force it. It worked fine on two of my desktop PC's but it complains about having not enough disk space on my 32GB Dell Venue Pro. It currently has ~4GB but it says I need a whopping 16GB! That seems a bit too much. Anyone know of a good workaround for this? If I wait for the scheduled WU update, will it still require much less disk space?

During installation, old windows files are also stored (this took 10GB on my surface). So yes, that space is needed.

Look at the pic.

It says that TOTAL SIZE = 39 GB
And Free Space = 5 GB
Which means that the size of all files on C is 34 GB

But when I select all files including Hidden files, and Right Click> Properties, its size of all files is only 27 GB.

I did clear recycle bin and disk defragmenter C, but still the same. So why is that?

Hello - I run Windows XP Professional and while trying to burn cd's I got an alert message telling me I only had 4% free disk space. I removed MSN which took up 111MB and nothing. I tried again and removed my Canon Zoombrowser ex which was 966MB and it still did not affect the percentage of free disk space on my C drive. I don't even have enough disk space to defrag. My computer is 10 GB with 244 meg ram. I have also deleted countless items in my document folder - such things as saved media player videos I received in email attachments and many word documents - all this resulting in no change in my free disk space. I rebooted after removing programs, this also had no effect. I don't know what to try next. Can someone help me? Thank You.

My pc storage is about full. I checked what was using the most space and it was desktop. How do I clear my c drive. I'm a novice so please make your answers as simple as possible

A:how do i free up disk space on drive C

"My pc storage is about full"Could you let us have the figures please? If all else fails double click "This PC" then go to the C drive (which is almost certainly your main drive), right click it and give us the sizes showing. I'm just wondering if the almost full is just from some data drive. The more you can tell us the better because we obviously can't see what is in front of you.It seems odd for the desktop to be the place where most stuff is. If that's right it should be right in front of you so you should be able to decide if there is anything you wish to remove or move onto some other form of storage.Also go to "Control Panel > Programs and Features" to see if there are any programs you don't require any more. Don't delete anything unless you know what it is.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi,

I would recommend that you have a look at Auslogic disk-defrag. It is a free program that you can download and defrag your computer with. It works the same way that the windows defrager does but just faster. That is where I would start at.

Hi, for months my C: (120 SSD) had only 2GB left of free space. So I finally purchased a 250GB SSD to replace it with. I received the drive last week and the box has been sitting on my desk. This morning I noticed that all of a sudden my C: drive is no longer in the red... I now have 30GB of free space. How can this be? I didnt uninstall any programs! All that occured on my PC is a windows update the other night...

Possible explanations?

A:Why did I suddenly go from 2GB free space to 30GB free space??

There is the system maintenance troubleshooter that runs at 1am.
Issues it looks for:
-Troubleshooting history is taking up disk space
-Broken shortcuts
-System time is set incorrectly
-There are icons on the desktop that haven't been used in 3 months.
-Disk volume errors
-Error reports are taking up disk space

Could be disk cleanup, you could also try running that as well. It now has the new mode windows update cleanup which removed older updates that have been unnecessary as new ones replaced it. That will save you even more space.

Maybe a program updated as well.

With all these combinations it can be possible you received a good chunk of free space. However, since you stated you have not run disk cleanup or have done anything, windows might have went nutz and has been wrong about your disk usage and just now got it right.(I am thinking this is the case.)

Or you have not restarted in awhile, and this is when disk information is updated.

I'm running Windows 7 with a 218GB hard disk. At one point I noticed that the hard disk space was significantly less than it should be. I deleted a few files and emptied the recycle bin, but the free filespace only decreased. After restarting, the filespace had gone down to less than a gigabyte. It was constantly fluctuating but would be consistently under a gigabyte. It also caused my computer to act very slow.

Per some suggestions that I found online, I downloaded i.Disk to see what was taking up all this space, and it showed up that I have 176GB used (which is much more accurate). But on Explorer, it still says I have only a few gigabytes left. So obviously something is wrong. I'm running a virus scan at the moment, but in the meantime does anyone know what is causing this problem?

When you turned off System restore you cleared all previous restores and freed up the space they held.

When using outlook exp 6.0, I receive this message. I got a solution from one of the other threads. The solution was to zero the count, in the registry, which worked. However, after several days, the same message returns "To free up disk space OE can compact messages". If I go into the registry and set the value to zero, it's fine for a few days, but still returns. Any idea how to make this setting permanent, or is there another solution for this problem? Please help!!!
 

A:Free Up Disk Space" OE warning

I wouldn't recommend trying. OE needs to compact the messages, for despite the name, it is really deleting messages that you have deleted. I would suggest you read this page, but make note of this line near the bottom of the page: "Do not change the registry just to avoid compaction."

A:Logical disk D low amount free space

I am afraid that I do not fully understand your question. That D partition should not be touched. If you have a problem with your computer, there are keys (usually f keys) that you push during boot up, to restore to factory specs. It should be used only in dire circumstances.

I began by saying I did not quite understand. If you care to elaborate further, maybe I can give further assistance.

Hi,

Recently I have been noticing my free hard disk space disappearing. It was around 80GB, and now it is nearer 70. During this time I have actually been uninstalling programs and removing files, so the disk usage should be noticable less, not more. When I check the sizes of the folders in the root of the drive (c:\), they add up to about 26GB. However the disk usage under the properties for the whole drive are 40GB. Can someone help me to find where this free space is going?

I am on Vista Home Premium 32bit.

Thanks,
Alex

It is most likely System Restore points and shadow copies, which is the way the OS is suppose to work.

In addition download this free software to see what is on the hard drive.

I have had this problem for a while, and finally after a while of not being able to figure out what's happening, decided to ask for some help.

I don't know how, when, but quite often, if not always, Windows (XP SP2) shows incorrect numbers for free disk space.

For example,
for disk C: it shows
Used Space: 17GB
Free Space: 76MB
Disk capacity: 20GB

As you can see, 3GB are missing.

What's strange, is the following. Anytime I see this, I make a copy of a file big enough that makes the size of the free space much lower (say 15MB). When I do that, instead somehow the missing space "gets found".

Why is this happening?
What's causing it?
and
How can I get rid of it?

Thanks

Hello Akash666, welcome to Seven Forums!


Have you right clicked that Free Space to see if you get a "Delete" option in the drop-down, though if it's part of an Extended partition (more than one Logical) you may not be able to create it as unallocated space; post a snip for us to have a look at.

Before we make any specific recommendations will you please post a snip/screen-shot of the entire Windows disk management drive map with a full description as to which drive/partition is which, so we can see what you have going on as there may be a fairly simple way to resolve the situation.

I am trying to create a 4GB primary partition for Intel Rapid Start but the Disk Part shows i have no space available in that drive and would not let me create the partition. Why would that be?

If sfc/scannow does NOT say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation" after the second SFC, please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.

A:Best way to free up disk space? Some dumb questions...

Running out of disk space means that you need to get more. You can put it off, try to recover space on the drive, copy things to DVD, and so on. But eventually, if you want to save things, you need to cough up the bucks.

Movies can be easily stored on DVD's. I usually store them in their original avi or mpg formats since I can get many of them on a DVD. External drives are really a good idea because not only do they give you storage space, but you can make periodic images of your internal drives. Then, when your drive fails, and it will, you don't lose everything, including your operating system. You jst get a new drive and restore everything from the image that you made.

Look on the external. Are your videos still there? that should answer your deletion question.

Hello,

I am having a problem with my HP C8180 printer. It is connected wirelessly to my computer yet when I print something the screen on the printer says 'now printing', but it fails to print anything. However, I tried printing a few words and that worked but I still can't print documents. I think this has something to do with the disk space on the print server and about something called 'spooling'. I would greatly appreciate anyone's help on this issue.

Last night, the available free space on my computer's hard disk was 8.11GB. Today, it's at 7.77GB. I did not install anything or download anything, either last night or today. The free space has been dropping down like this for days. What could be the cause of it?
