C drive: last week 60GB free space, today <10GB!

Q: C drive: last week 60GB free space, today <10GB!

I have not installed any programs on my C drive since last week. last week I had 60GB free space on my laptop of a 150GB hard drive with only the same programs (minus three large programs) that was on my 120GB hard drive before that! now my computer reports less than 10GB free when my 120GB had 30GB free with the exact setup! where is my space going & how do I get my 60GB back?

Preferred Solution: C drive: last week 60GB free space, today <10GB!

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.)

A: C drive: last week 60GB free space, today <10GB!

1) Please scan your system with BOTH your installed anti virus app AND with MalwareBytes
2) Use Disc Cleanup. Be sure to click on the "More Options" tab and then system restore button, which will delete all but the most recent restore point (system restore eats a LOT of space).
3) Download, install and run TreeSize and see where the space is being utilized (http://www.jam-software.com/treesize_free/)

Hi there,

Every time when I first start my PC it only shows 2GB space left on my 111GB SSD drive.
However every time I restart it shows 14GB remaining on my SSD drive?
Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Which number is correct?
Remember I am not changing anything in between restarts?

I recently did a disk cleanup to find i had another version of Vista on my hard drive. This freed me up 140 GB from my PC. For some reason, the hard drive space has gradually dropped over the last 1-2 weeks to 48 and i havent downloaded or installed anything close to that! Installed an 8GB game and some more music and that was it. I have run scanners to delete all temporary files and stuff like that using CCleaner and similar programs but it hasnt resolved my problem. Can someone please tell me whats going on and how to solve it? :(

I have a problem w/ my 60GB Maxtor 7200 rpm h/d.

I'm using WInXP Pro.

I checked under it's properties and it says that I've used 10gb and have close to 47GBs left. I know for sure that I don't anywhere close to that on the h/d. I went through the folders one by one and counted how much space is in them and I counted only 2.5GB.

I already deleted everything in my Recycle bin, including the norton protected files in the recycle bin.

I also reformatted my HD and this is a new install just a couple of weeks old. I also had the same problem before I reformatted.

Anyone know how I can get it to report the right used space size/free space?

Thanks in Advance.

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 was baffled to find my main drive with 80mb space left after freeing up 170gb of space last week. This has happened repeatedly, WinDirStat can't figure out what's taking up all the space, I've run disk cleanup, defragged and ran multiple different virus scans, all to no avail. Literally my entire useful hard drive contents has now been moved to an external drive, all else deleted/cleaned and the entire 750gb drive is still somehow full!

Its severely affecting the performance at a time when I desperately need a functioning laptop, and would like to avoid a clean install or hard drive replacement! Help would be much appreciated

A:hard drive losing space rapidly (170gb over past week)

Its your system restore points. Delete all points then make a new one in case needed.
If that does not do the trick, run your anti virus scan, then download and run a scan with the free Malwarebytes.
You can also reduce the amount of space that the restore points can take.

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

Paragon is very good for servers or situations where you have to make frequent backups. The writing of differential backups is extremely fast (in my test just a couple of minutes). But as usual with those advanced programs, you need to do some learning. To purchase it is pretty expensive - $80 last time I looked. The product key for my last free version that I won in a contest expired after some time. So you may expect the same with this freebie.

Hi Gang,

I don't know where this post is supposed to be because it could just as well be under Windows 98 or Hardware, but here goes.

I have a 160GB hard drive that I use for backups and for programs. I don't it use that often. Mostly for storeage. Its an internal hard drive adapted to USB. But because Win98 doesn't accept partitions greater than 129GB I had to partition it into two sectors.

The first sector, Drive G, had 120GB originally and Drive H had the remaining 40GB. I did this operation using Windows FDisk.

I put full 2 full system backups, of Drives C and D, (one using Norton Ghost, the other using Genie Backup Manager 4.0), on Drive G. Then I realized I consolidate space more efficiently if I shrank the partition of Drive G and gave the gained space of Drive G to Drive H.

So to summarize, I took 50GB off Drive G and gave it to Drive H. This resized Drive G to about 80GB and Drive H to 70GB. (Give or take a few GB's because converting to FAT 32 took up about 10GB).

I performed this exchange of space with Partition Magic.

However my problem seems to be when I try to copy a disk on to Drive H using Genie Backup Manager 4.0, I get an Out of Space on Selected Medium error message. However Windows shows that I have more than 60GB of usable space. So I am out of space according to Genie, but not according to Windows 98.

The text of the error message is not exact but I can get it for you if you wish.

Is anyone familiar enough with these program... Read more

A:Genie Backup Manager says Out of Space with more than 60GB remaining.

I'm going to guess that the size of the backup file is exceeding the maximum file size for FAT32 volumes. Depending on the capability of the program in question, that would be either 2gigs or 4gigs. I think under W98, it may be limited to 2gigs, XP is able to write 4gig maximum files to FAT32 volumes.

Hi everyone,
I installed Ubuntu on my computer a few months ago and created another partition for it on my 1TB hard drive.

I didn't really care for Ubuntu so I decided to delete the partition it was on.
That might have been a mistake.

There was another post about this a couple years ago, but I don't understand the instructions and am not actually sure if it worked. Can someone explain how to do this, please?

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

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.

Alright so here's my problem... I have dual booted my xp machine with windows 7. Also here lately I've been doing a lot of logo contests (i'm a graphic designer and I do contests on crowdspring.com). Well Photoshop is on my XP hard drive (i put xp on one hard drive and 7 on another) and today when I went to turn on my machine, my computer posted, went through the loading screen, then got to the "windows is starting..." screen and just froze there... it wouldn't go any farther. I tried restoring back one day and it didn't work, so I tried restoring back a full month and it still didn't work.

I have kaspersky antivirus and i keep it updated and it was running plus I tried restoring so I know it's not a virus...

Oh and I forgot to mention, it will boot into safe mode... just not regular...

any ideas? Windows 7 still works fine... that's what i'm using now to post (luckily I finally got my air card to work, i guess my original installation of either program didn't work because I completely uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it worked), so i can get online, it's just i can't use photoshop, which is my main concern....

so any suggestions would be fantastic...

This week she was unable to connect. Her IT department couldn't resolve it and said it can't connect because it is not cabled?????

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?

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.

I only have 7 root folders on my C drive. The Windows folder of course takes up the bulk of the space at 53.5 Gb. The other big one is Program Files at 8.8Gb. Any thoughts on where the space goes? I don't even do anything and the space decreases.

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.

Yes, I know this isn't a pressing matter, but I do occasionally want to have fun with my family, and this is one of the only ways, as naturally some of my family lives in a different state. Anyway, I need some help, seeing as how I'm not very computer-wise, and have no clue what's going on. Suggestions?

I have a Lenovo laptop that has 3 drives - C, Q and S.

S is called: SERVICEV003 and shows 380 MB free of 1.46 GB.
Q is called: Lenovo and shows 3.76 MB free of 9.76 GB.
C is called: SW_Preload and shows 13.5 GB free of 137 GB.

I found a question in your forum that was dated in March 29, 2010 that is similar to the one I'm going to ask. My C drive was just showing in the red and I followed the steps in the March 2010 to delete temp files and whatnot. Now, I even did the HiJack this download and have a copy of the file that it created. I would like to know what I can delete from this file, gaining me more space on my C drive.

I need to find out how to free up space on my C Drive. Right now I only have 2% free. I tried to run my disk defragmenter, but I got a warning that it needs 15% in order to run properly. My disk cleanup dosen't seem to work for me either. I'm thinking I should delete or move some stuff on my C Drive, but I'm not sure what the best way is for me to do this. I don't want to accidently delete something important, but I'm sure I have stuff on there that I'm not useing and don't need
I appear to be running 32-bit, Windows 2000 Professional, Service Pack 4v5.0.2195, if this is helpful to know.

I sure would appriciate some info to help me with this, please.

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!

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.

Hello corrina87,

After running the usual apps (disk cleanup,defragmentation) and uninstalling unused

programs you find that you still don't have enough HDD space it maybe time to consider

upgrading or adding another HDD either internally or by an external drive.

A:C drive low on free space

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 the Alienware M14XR2 with an i7-3610QM CPU @ 2.30GHz and 12 GB of ram but my C drive is completely filled up. My C Drive has 40.8 gigs of memory total and less than 1 gig is available. I have a solid state drive installed that has more than enough memory for me but it seems like my OS and everything that I have is taking up all the room on my C Drive causing everything to slow down. I'm not tech illiterate but I am not great with computers. With that in mind, what would be the best way to free up space on my C Drive and is there a way to make things download to my D Drive instead of my C Drive. I get messages saying there isn't enough space on my C Drive to install programs which is insanely annoying. I have moved to my D Drive all my music and a few pictures but that didn't free up THAT much space. Help me please...I'm desperate.

someone have good options of how to clear some space?
I am also using Ccleaner and Disk Cleanup from the properties on the partition.
between the last time i formatted my computer was before 4-5 years so i think this is the only solution but i would like to hear other options before i will do that.
Thanks for helping

A:i have no more free space on my drive

Can I ask why you put Windows on the smaller partition? And why make the partition for Windows so small? I'm not being mean, I'm just simply inquiring. What do you put on the other partition? Can you just buy another 1TB HDD to throw in there(around $40), and just unpartition the first HDD and dedicate that one to Windows and the 2nd one to storage?

As I was doing some imaging backups, I noticed that Macrium was seeing that my SSD drive had the following used/free #s:

Partition 1: System Reserved NTFS Active 24.2 GB used, 100 GB Total
Partition 2: OS & Programs C: 150.0 GB used, 167.58 Total

That's tighter than I "think" is a good idea. So I looked at the folders on the C: drive and cleaned up the minimal temp folder data and emptied the recycle bin. Here's what the folders show:

Boot 0.4 GB
CWP 0.1 GB
Intel 0 GB
Program Files 10.6 GB
Program Files (x86) 12.6 GB
Program Data 3.7 GB
Temp 0 GB
Users 10.0 GB
Windows 21.8 GB
Total: 59.2 GB

What is causing the discrepancy?

A:C: Drive Used/Free Space WAY Different Than Actual?

Could be that hidden and system files are not included.

Also I see you have an Intel SSD. If you have the Intel SSD Toolbox program, that might sometimes leave multiple large(GB) files in the root directory after doing a diagnostic scan.

Your system may have become a zombie for file sharing. If you have any installed, ininstall all P2P programs (Kazaa, Bearshare, Limewire, etc.)

Next, follow these instructions:

@ michellewjy did you check user profile in C drive because by default most of download is saved automatically in user profile...
here the path to check that: C:\Users\select your profile name\downloads
you can also try: Start Menu\your profile name\downloads

Also check the number of restore points you have & the total size being occupied by them on your C drive...
you check by:Start Menu\type "create restore point"\under "system protection"\click "configure"\under "disk space usage" check the total usage..

Lets know if this resolve the issue, if not then we will check further....
