available space 0, free space zero on c drive

Q: available space 0, free space zero on c drive

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. I have never dealt with this kind of issue.

Preferred Solution: available space 0, free space zero on c drive

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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

i installed ubuntu on my ssd and had a dual boot laptop, however i want to use my ssd as a cache drive, henceforth i deleted ubuntu and now i have unallocated space and free space on my ssd and i am wondering if i need to covert that into a new partitioned volume that can be used as a cache drive

A:Use unallocated space and free space on ssd as cache drive

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

Setting up a new box, Vista sadly to say. Installed MS Office XP Pro and get the following error when closing MS Word ONLY. Excel saves without any errors.

The disk is full. Free some space on this drive, or save the document on another disk. Try one of the following:
*Close any unneeded documents, programs, and windows.
*Save the document on another disk.

I've moved the file location and same error. I cleaned up the drive including removing all restore point except the last one.

Now this thing has a 250 gig drive but it is also used for security in a mini mart with 8 cameras. There are about 145 Gigs of video from the security cameras on this box. At this time I am just setting it up, no cameras are connected, and the security program hasn't been set up yet. I just moved the files from the old drive to this one. BTW the old drive crashed.

I've tried the detect and repair in MS Word and no help. I have uninstalled MS Office and reinstalled and no help and even went into Properties and set the user up on quota with no limits and still no help.

So now I am at a loss and have no idea what to try next. Really don't want to delete the security files because it took 6 hours to transfer them to this computer and unless all else fails this isn't a option I want to use.

Now on the old box, which had XP Pro this, was not a problem so on Vista it should not be either but then Vista is a MS Software so this is understandable. Actually, the old box had a 15... Read more

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

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.

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

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, 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 know that the above thread title has already been addressed in the past but none of them have solved my problem till now.
I have already read following threads-

Cannot extend volume (disk management) although "free space" exists

The problem is that the free space in the screenshot below cannot be deleted to make an unallocated space nor can it be used to create a new volume. Also the c: & d: drives are not able to extend from the free space available thus rendering those 92.89 GB useless.

I have also tried the help in the second link given above; i.e by using the partition wizard (i used a bootable usb for the same) i tried to convert the free space to primary partition, but that option(convert to primary) too was greyed out in the partition wizard when i tried to do so. The other option to resize the partition was also greyed out in the same partition wizard.

I also executed the chkdsk /f in an elevated command window as suggested in the first link. But no error was encountered and my laptop is working fine. I just want to recover that free space.

PN1: Previously I had ubuntu(root) installed on the partition which now is the free space of 92.89 GB. As I no longer required ubuntu i removed it as per the instructions in the given video, which i was successful in doing.

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

User keeps getting this message:




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?


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?

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.

Running vista home premium 64-bit with 600GB HDD. When I open "Computer" it shows graphically and numerically the used and free space on my drives. C - normally shows 310 GB free of 585 GB, D - Factory image - 1.47 GB free of 11.1 GB, K - HP Pocket media drive 237 GB free of 465 GB. The problem I am having applies only to C, with the others remaining unchanged. The graphical representation of free/used space is in blue and white normally. Here is the problem. The last couple of weeks when I open"Computer", I sometimes get C - 50.6 GB free of 585 GB and the graphical representation is in red, not blue. I got an error message the other day that I did not have free space to do what I wanted to do. When I checked free space it was showing, in red, free space of 50 GB instead of the normal 300 plus GB. As soon as I reboot the free space is shown as the correct amount - 300 plus GB. Anyone know what is going on and how I correct it?

I was having some issues while spending time with some friends via the internet (primarily while playing Left 4 Dead 2), and my computer kept on freezing and locking up. I think it might be due to too much space on my computer being taken up, thus making it to where my computer didn't have enough space to play Left 4 Dead 2. I think I'm attaching a picture of what the My Computer screen looks like.

I have an issue that likely has already been covered, yet the solutions I've found / tried have not given me the desired results.

About 4 months ago I had an issue with my C drive filling up. I ran through some solutions such as reducing the amount of space taken up by System Restore, by Recycle Bin. I've cleared out the C:\Windows\Prefetch folder. Not too long ago I was at about 4 Gb of free space. Any software installs are done to the D or F drives but still I'm in the space issue scenario.

It's my first post here and apologies if this has been answered recently; I did a search but didn't find anything. I have a Dell Dimension 8250/Pentium 4 running Windows XP with Service Pack 2. My hard drive is 120 GB and I have it partitioned with my c: being 8 GB, using NTFS format.

The problem is that I only have a few hundred meg of free space on c: even though I do not install any programs nor save any data to it. I have done all the usual things; emptied the recycle bin, deleted temp files, even moved my ServicePack files to another partition. I purchased Partition Magic in the hopes of making c: larger but I get a warning saying that c: may be unbootable if I do so.

SO... I have a few questions:
1) If I increase the size of c: beyond 8 GB, will my drive really become unbootable if using NTFS and Windows XP or is this only a problem with NT?
2) How can I free up more space on c:? Both hubby and I have separate log-in profiles so under c:\documents and settings we both have all sorts of files with application data for various programs that are installed on other partitions. Do these need to stay on c: and if not, how do I move them?
3) Some programs, for example my HP printer driver, do not allow me to choose which drive on which to install, so they end up on c. Is there any way to force these to install onto other partitions?
4) Can I move my Fonts folder to another partition and how do I access it there?

Try using ccleaner (im my signiture) to try and clear up some space. You can combine the D drive but make sure its not a recovery partition. To combine them go to start and look in the search for "disk managment" but make sure you know what you are doing :D

also check the recycle bin make sure that you get rid off all that you dont need

I have only 5% free space on C Drive. I dumped Big Fish games totally, all but one game on Wild Games, Firefox, (I kept IE & Safari) Dumped a lot of stuff off the desk top, removed a lot of big sites from Bookmarks I've run C Cleaner reg clean, & Malware Bytes. I am including my Hijack results. I'm pretty sure I need to dump a bunch of stuff from registry, but I know nothing about what is safe to remove. What to do, what to do?EDIT; Deleted 2 post to misplaced log topic and move topic from XP to Malware Removal Logs ~ Hamluis.

Is that enough free space or should i increase the size of the drive ?

A:How much free space for drive c ?

My installation drive C is totally 18.5 Mb and have 4.5 M.b free space.Is that after installation Windows7 or ...........?When you have this after installation than is this in theory enough.But you must not forget, that when you work with Windows and other programs, that Windows and the other stored data on your drive and than is 4.5 mb not enough.My advice in this: Delete older programs what you don't use anymore or buy a new hd with more store space.When you had 20 mb free space than was this in practical enough, but now, I am sorry.

Hi guys,

I recently acquired a legit copy of windows and i have SP2 installed. However, I end up only having 635 mb of space on C drive. I dunno if this is the forum. If not, mods please move?

I recently had to reinstall windows because of an infection. I reformatted the C drive during installation. Would that have anything to do with it?

Thanks guys!

My 120 gig C drive partition yesterday reported 62.4 GB free. Today I get a warning telling me free space is dangerously low.
Checking it I see 53 mb free and checking it again 5 minutes later I see 26.7 mb free. System restore is configured for 11% (13.21 GB). The other partition on this 250 gig drive is consistently reporting 69.4 GB free.
When I do a restart I get totally different numbers for that C partition such a 43 GB free and something else again an hour later.
Kaspersky has done a full scan and found nothing.
Any help will be very much appreciated.

Hi DaveV! Welcome to SevenForums! Try doing a System Files scan. This scans all system files, checks if any are corrupted or missing and then replaces them. Open a Command Prompt (Type CMD into Start and press enter) and type in (without the quotes): "sfc /scannow" Remember the space between sfc and /scannow.

Try that and report back

i have started burning home movies onto dvd using ulead video studio 8, i have put aside 50gig as a partition from a sata 160gig hard drive. When i have finished editing the home movie and burnt it to a dvd i then delete the file off the hard drive which is between 2 to 9 gig in size (could be multiple files). the problem i have is when i look to see how much is free on the drive it's still saying that size is still there. i have emptied the recycle bin and also have tryed window washer, the only way to correct it is take all files and folders i want off the hard drive, format it, then copy the files and folders back to get a true reading of space left on the drive. i have to format drive through restarting computer in safe mode only.

I"ve installed windows 8.1 from fresh on a seperate parition on my macbook pro retina 2013 via Apple's bootcamp.

I allocated 40GB which when formatted is 37GB

But now I'm downloading Call of duty on steam which is 14GB however on my hard drive apparently I've only got 5GB left..

Is there a way to free up space or to see what on earth is taking up soo much space..

Ideally I want to buy Battlefield 4 on origin soon but that needs 30 GB space, obviously I'll delete the call of duty game but how can I get all my space back.


Really appreciate any help

A:How to free up hard drive space

Nothing is taking up to much space, you made the partition to small. My current Windows install on my laptop is 33 GB and that's with all my user folders moved to my Data drive. You could run disk cleanup, turn off system restore, disable hibernation (this deletes the hiperfile.sys file), but your still going to run out of space fast.

I am new to this site and this is my first post. From past 1 month, I am facing the problem of fluctuating free space. Somewhere on the net, I found that , it may be due to some malware , which might be eating free space.
I am using Windows 7 64 bit OS and have Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 Anti- Virus.
I ran Combofix Software and it deleted some files from   "c:\users\abc\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk\_hiddenPbk  ".
I am attaching the log of Combofix along with this mail. 
Please help me in identifying & correcting the problem.
Thanks and Regards,
