Free Up Disk Space" OE warning

Q: Free Up Disk Space" OE warning

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."

Big Kudos to anybody who can solve this one! Very little/nothing on Google or microsoft support site.
Here's the problem:

I'm helping a family member who has a new Dell PC with Windows XP Home, Outlook Express 6.
Every time they close Outlook Express, the following Warning pops up:
To free up disk space OE can compact messages. This may take a few minutes. There are 2 options - OK and Cancel.

Here is the rub: We've closed the warning, or we've clicked OK, or we've clicked cancel, we've checked the box that says don't ask me again....these warnings continue to come up next time (EVERY time) Outlook Express is closed.

This is a senior citizen who has, maybe, 20 email messages and no shortage of memory or disk space. I want to prevent this warning from coming up ever again. How do I do it? Is there some default I can change somewhere?

Hello people, I have an external 500 gigs drive with over 100 gigs free and a partition on a RAID 0 with 500 gigs free. I was trying to copy a folder with 25 gigs of data from my external hard drive to my 500 gigs partition, until at about copying 2.5 gigs, Windows shows up a warning saying that there is not enough disk space and that the file (was 500 Kb...) could not be copied. I skipped it and kept doing the same thing for every subsequent file... whats my computer's problem? I have WIndows Vista Home.

I have a C: drive which I want to increase in size. Under disk management there is 20GB of "Free space" - (right next to the C: partition). But neither disk management or EASUES partition manager will allow the partition to use this space. How to I change "free space" to "unallocated" so that it can be used ?

I got the warning msg that my drive "E" (system restore) was almost full. I did a disk cleanup, and a delete all restore points (including system...). After deleting approx 25 restore points and I've deleted down to 2 currently (new ones) and the only way I could get them to go was with CCleaner, My disk now shows only 4.2 free of the setting of 10.6GB. I cannot find what it taking up over 6GB on my recovery disk. What has it gone for....? I searched the internet several hours but can't find the answer. Any help appreciated...TJ

A:Unable to increase free space on Recovery Disk "E"

System Restore points take up space on C, rather than in E or a recovery partition in my experience. A recovery partition is normally put there by the manufacturer to allow you to restore to factory specifications if needed. I wouldn't ever deliberately put anything else on a recovery partition.

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.

ref Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393 Am not entirely sure what Microsoft is thinking but now have been through the process to update  two Win 10 32GB tabs to Windows 10 Anniversary You need over 15GB free to get past the first check but then started getting an error 80070070 "insufficient free space". This continued until I had freed up 18.2GB on disk C. No option to use external disk as with Win 10. This is not for the faint of heart as in the end I was moving whole program directories and "gigantic" files to the D drive (sdCard). However it can be done.

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.

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.

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.

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?

I am running Windows XP Professional SP2 on my HP pavilion dv6000. The OS is installed on the D: drive and the C: drive is my recovery hd. The C: drive is 6.25 Gig and my D: drive is 68.2 Gig. I have not installed anything at all on my C: drive.

Just yesterday I installed CA Internet Security on my D: drive. Since then, the used space on my C: drive has maxed out (6.2 Gig) and I'm constantly getting Low Disk Space warnings. I've looked on the drive itself (showing hidden files as well) and can only find about 60K of space being used. I tried running Disk Cleanup on it but it shows that there is nothing to clean up. I also tried running System Restore but for some reason, after I installed the CA Internet Security, only my latest restore points are showing up (it was never like that before it was installed) and I can't go back to before it was installed. I also checked the drive for errors but it comes up clean.

Since I started having this problem, I uninstalled CA Internet Security and reinstalled Symantec v10 on my D: drive. I have run a virus scan but it comes up clean.

I tried running disk defragmenter and viewed the report. It shows a file called \preload\BASE.WIM which is 5.26 Gig. What is this file and how can I reduce the size of it?

Hi

Don?t know if you can help me. I dual boot Windows Vista and XP. (Vista on main partition)

I used Easy BCD creator to create the partitions as per tutorials and everything has worked fine until now.

When I created the XP partition I only allocated 12 GB which was recommended for operating system drivers and folders. The reality is I only use XP for downloading files and burning etc but the files are extracted to another drive which has plenty of space. I now find that I?m unable to extract (WinRar) files in XP as I keep getting the disk warning, not sufficient space etc etc. The warning relates to the XP Partition which only has about 2 GB available.

I researched this and found that it could be due to the XP partition being FAT 32 rather than NTFS etc but I don?t think that?s the issue here. (PC cam with Vista preinstalled and I partitioned that drive).

Why would I get this message all of a sudden when?

1. The files are being extracted to another drive which has plenty of space.
2. I haven?t added anything to the XP partition for ages so it has always been about 10Gb used and 2Gb spare

Many thanks

A:Warning low disk space mystery

Hi

Apologies I meant to say I used GParted to create the XP partition. I think I just need to increase the size of the XP partition and I can do this using the Vista disk management tool. I'm confused as I obviously need to shrink another partition before I can extend the XP one. Disk management shows:

Disk 0 Basic 232.83(4 partitions)
63Mb Healthy EISA config
Recovery E 15Gb Healthy Primary Partition
OS C 207.75Gb Healthy Primary Partition, System Boot etc
K 10Gb Healthy Logical Drive (this shows up as an extended partition and is the one with the XP OS)

Disk 1 Basic 232.83 Healthy Primary active partition

I tried to reduce C to then extend K but it only gave me about 40Mb when there is about 80Gb free. I know there's a simple fix for this but I just can't see it.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Simon

I built a system using a ASUS motherboard P4S533E with P4 2.4Ghz, Western Digital 80Gb, sound and LAN Onboard, Optorite CDWriter and Samsung DVD.

I have installed a AGP ATI AIW Radeon 32 MB and a modem USR 5699B.

The system works fine but time to time come out a warning "Low disk space" and the computer slow down and nothing works then except restart. After restart everything is normal with 80% disk space free.

I tried to disable the low disk space warning but nothing change. The event happens when I use TV tuner recording or I Explorer but every time after one hour or more.

I have last driver of Catalyst for my ATI which I guess is making those troubles even is not very clear. I tried a couple of registry adjustments but nothing. I still guess this is from a driver loaded because the warning is false I have enough space on HDD partitioned in C and D with first partition around 55Gb.

The warning does not happens when I use Ms Office or other programs like scanner and Paper port with OCR or editing images or use sound only.

Thank you for your time.

We had to clone some machines to new hard drives to replace failing drives. But on the recovery partition, Windows now constantly warns that the disk space is low on that volume, via a system tray icon. Is there a way to tell Windows to not warn about
that specific drive anymore?

Earlier today I tried to dual boot my hard drive to run both Windows 7 and Ubuntu. I wasn't able to do it properly (I must have done some wrong steps, I'm new to all this stuff and didn't realize how complicated partitioning was... ah.) and now my hard drive is left with "free space" (15GB, I think its an extended partition) and "unallocated space" (38GB, not sure what kind of partition it is) alongside my C drive (primary), Lenovo Recovery partition (primary), and something called "SYSTEM_DRV" (primary).

I think the "free space" is extended because when I try and create a new volume with the "unallocated space", I'm denied and a window pops up saying I have too many primary partitions.

The option to 'delete partition' for the "free space" is available but if I select it, a warning window pops up (included in thumbnail below).

What I'd like to do is reformat the "free space" and "unallocated space" in some way that it can be used/merged to the C drive.

I've included a screen cap of my HD in Disk Manager below.

Hello again mate.


If you delete the "Free Space" it will become unallocated space that you can extend the C: partition partition into.

I am getting a Low Hard Disk Space warning, this happened about a week or so ago but went away after I rebooted a few times. I have a 500GB hard disk and right now it shows about 5GB free. Normally I have about 200GB. I am going to try rebooting to see if it works again but I'd like to know what the cause is and if it is a sign that my hard drive is going bad. So far since my 1yr warranty expired about 2 months ago by battery has went bad and I've had one of my RAM cards go bad. i haven't been to happy with it lately.

Hello,
 
I have a few problems with my HP Pavillion laptop but one seems more urgent so I'll ask about that one now.
 
I'm running Windows Vista Home 64
 
(I'm not very tech savvy so I hope if someone helps they'll be patient.)
 
About 3 days ago my computer started flashing a blue screen but before I can read it it shuts down only to restart asking me if I want to start normally.
I keep getting "low disk space on recovery D" all the time even after I made room by sending files to an external drive.
I should say that there's only about 31 GB on my laptop left but I've been flirting with a full drive for some time yet this warning is new.
 
What I've done so far is trash everything I've downloaded in the past few days and cleared my History.
I've done a free CCleaner scan and a free Malwarebytes scan.
I've also downloaded COMODO but I haven't been successful with it yet as the scan takes so long my computer shuts down about 60% into it.
 
I should say that I can't open my computer in Safe Mode because of (I assume) a corrupt windows file that I've lived with for about a year now. (the other problem)
Anyways, when I try to open in Safe Mode it freezes at the same point every time while loading my windows files.
 
Any help will be greatly appreciated as I can't really afford servicing.

My system drive has a lot of free space on it. I have a scratch disk which is full of cache for a video editing program. It's always going to be full for as long as I have any videos that I'm editing. I would like Windows to stop telling me that the disk is full; Windows has no business on that drive; there is nothing there but video cache.

My search has led me to this thread with the following instructions: Windows 10 - disable the low disk space warning? - Microsoft Insider Previews - Neowin Forums






Login as "Administrator" LowDiskMinimumMBytes DWORD 0 --> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Search\Gather

Then

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Search\Gathering Manager

take ownership of "Gathering Manager" and assign the ACL rights for the local administrator account (NOT a user account). Modify "BackOffLowDiskThresholdMB" set to 0x00 (0)

(Recommended)

Restore ownership and ACL to the way they were. Not required,.

Ensure that your NoLowDiskSpaceChecks value is DWORD and not string or another type: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoLowDiskSpaceChecks = DWORD 0x01

Your are prevented from editing such keys for good reason - to protect you from yourself. Be VERY careful how you use the following guidance. Best to make a restore point before you start, or even a system image.

You need to take ownership, add your user account with full access then edit the key. Then undo the permissions changes, removing yourself and making TrustedInstaller the owner again. Start by clicking the 'Advanced' button in 'Permissions'.

NB: to make TrustedInstaller the owner again you have to be able to find it first. Type its full name:
NT Service\TrustedInstaller and click the 'check names' button.

Hello all,
 
I'm attempting to clean up my husbands laptop. I want to be sure I've got it all off because the first removal did not stick. I want to be sure the 2nd removal I did worked and that there are no traces left.
 
What has happened so far:
 
1. I briefly used my husbands laptop and noticed that he was getting a low disk space balloon popup near the clock. I checked the disk and found that only about 10% of the space is used. I asked him about the popup and he said its been coming for a few weeks now and the computer is slow. Right away I knew his computer was infected and began a clean up.
 
2. Ran Malwarebytes Anti malware free which found and removed Wajam which I believe is a hijacker.
 
3. I then ran SAS (super anti spyware) which found the winlogin.exe trojan horse. My research shows that this trojan uses the users computer as a remote relay to send spam and infect others. I removed it along with about 455 cookies (I think).
 
edit - 
4. After the removal, I checked windows updates and program updates and found that he did not have SP1 installed (windows 7). The update was not being offered so I checked the reason for that and found out that he has a graphics card conflict but that I could manually install. I did the manual install and installed the updates that naturally followed the sp1 update.

Can someone tell me how to free up disk space? Do I need to delete word documents? Thanks in advance.

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).

Hello all, new member here. I have came across this forum many times in the past years when searching, and have found it to be very beneficial. So, I figured I would see if anyone here may know why this is happening.

First off, the information about the Laptop in question;
-Asus K60IJ
-Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit
-Intel Pentium @2.20 GHZ
-4GB DDR 2 Ram
-500GB Seagate Hard Drive

As a part of regular maintenance, I use Glary Utilities and CCleaner to keep the PC clean. In an effort to protect deleted data, I run the "drive wiper"/"wipe free space" function of these programs every so often. I have never had a problem with carrying out these actions until the other day. CCleaner acts like it does something, but having done this before, I know that it's not a few minute operation. Glary Utilities gives a more reasonable response when trying;

"Error: Cannot Wipe free space for UNC drive"

I don't know much about UNC or why my C:\ Drive would be categorized as this. I am on a home WiFi connection, however I haven't every had this connected as a network computer, and also have all of the network/sharing options disabled. I have not made any recent changes that I can recall which may have caused this.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this may be happening, or better yet, how I can revert back to where I am able to use this feature of the programs?

All input and suggestions are welcome, I appreciate it very much!
Thank you

A:Unknown reasoning for "Error: Cannot Wipe free space for UNC drive"

Hi redhatman, welcome to 7F!

Sounds like something happened when CCleaner (CC) attempted to wipe the free space, Glary picked up on those changes, and it ended up being a UNC drive, and it (Glary) couldn't determine the original working directory to start itself.
Did CC show the "Cannot Wipe free space for UNC drive" error?
Had you made any changes to the file system between the time you last ran CC?

What to try:
Before every CC run the program asks you if you want to create a backup of the registry, if you were prudent enough to do that, try running that backup. https://Problems after you have run CCleaner | www.piriform.com
If you made a restore point try it or the closest one to before the time/date of this wipe.
Start your machine by Last Known Good Configuration. See Step #4 and use your arrow keys to move to that option.
If all the above do not work you may have to try a Repair Install.
As a last resort try backup images or clones if you have them.

If any of these steps resolves your problem you should run a CHKDSK, and SFC /scannow.
By the way, thank you for filling out your System Specs; If you add the model number (K60IJ) of your laptop to your System Specs you won't have to list it or the rest of them in any of your subsequent posts.

I'm running Win2000 and have Norton Systemworks. The computer's never had Internet, and I never, ever buy pirated software, so I don't think it's a virus. C-drive is (I think) 40 G. D-drive is 120 G. These are 2 physical disks.

I noticed awhile back whenever I delete a large video file (sometimes 7 or 8 gig, sometimes larger), the space that should be recovered does not show up in free space. Running Norton's defrag took quite awhile and did not fix the problem.

I tried emptying Recycle Bin, emptying Norton recycle, and no avail. The problem occurs when I delete the file in Windows Explorer, or if I go out into DOS and delete, it's the same. Also if I do the shift-delete (to avoid the Recycle Bin), same. Any of these three approaches yields the same result.

Now, just to show you how smart I am, I went and put some video files on the C-drive. When C-drive filled up (and that sure didn't take long), I copied them to D-drive and deleted two files, totaling nearly 20 gig. Guess what. Same problem. Now, C-drive shows only like 200+ Mb free, although it should have about 20 G.

I tried to run defrag (actually Norton's version), but it says there's not enough free space. Well, duhhh.

H - E - L - P ! How can I recover my free space without reformating? And what should I do next time I delete a large file, so this problem won't resurface.

Any help would be genuinely apreciated.

Jim
 

A:I delete files and "free space" doesn't change

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.

I`m fairly certain the entire space has to be deleted down to unallocated space, then you can extend C

I recommend making and using a Partition Wizard Boot CD to do all your partition management.

I mapped a few network drives to different shared folders on my EX485 with the inital 750GB drive installed. Since then, I have installed an additional 2x1TB. However, in Windows 7 it is showing 1.18TB free of 678GB, so it recognizes the correct free space, but is still showing the old HDD total. I've removed the mappings and readded and rebooted both my PC and WHS with no luck. Any suggestions? Thank You!

A:Incorrect "free of" Hard Drive Total Space

My network drive mappings never show the correct free space either. I just ignore it.

So I bought this computer off a friend and immediately noticed it was already infected with malwares... sometimes when I click on a search result I get redirected to a random website. If I drag the link to create another tab in Firefox it usually opens the right site though. Sometimes I get popdowns as well.

In safe, safe with networking, and regular modes I've ran ESET caught a few files and deleted them, ran Stopzilla and caught a few more files so they both saying i'm clean now. Unfortunately it didn't seem to fix much and now Stopzilla tells me that there is a 'Vundo.y' infection and when i delete the files they just show back up on the scan after every reboot. I also can't install or use Mbam. I could install it a while ago, but the desktop shortcut would stop working and say that it couldn't find the .exe file. Trying to open the mbam.exe started to load it and then did nothing.

Figured I'd just re-install Windows 7, but now when I try to install it I get a error saying "There is not enough free space to store temporary Windows installation files. Try using Disk Cleanup, uninstall old programs, or move files to an external location such as a CD, DVD, or external hard drive. "

Hi forum! Thanks for your help!
I am having this free disk space problem that I'd like to understand. The message appeared quite some time ago. I had my thunderbird profile in the C disk, as well as some data. So, I moved it and deleted other stuff, and got myself bright beautiful blank space on the C, around 7gbs.-
Thing is it was a month ago or so, and now, the problem appears again. So, I am asking for a kind of solution, but in first place, I'd like to kwon what's going on.-
I have downloaded quite a few things, but they are in another partition. I always wipe off the temporal files, as well as internet temporary files. If I install programs, they are in another partitio too, but is not the case, for I have not installed almost anything(I know that even if we put the 'program' in a partition, some data goes in C nevertheless).-
I am aware of the existance of those progs that will show the ammount of data and its location and stuff. I have read mostly how to get rid of useless things, but I'd like to know what happens, and if I can prevent it from occuring.-
I have seen so far, with one of those that show the data, that the same archive can be located in both folders. That happened with the thunderbird profile files, which 1 gb would be 2 gb of disk allocation.-

Thanks again, and be well!

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

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.

*The computer I am referring to is a Microsoft Windows XP, Version 5.1.2600 (it's a desktop)

Okay, so one day while I was on the desktop computer, I received a little bubble in the system tray saying that I'm running out of space on local disk (C:). My local space (C:) has a total capacity of 228GB. So I deleted all kinds of documents, programs and songs that I didn't need (like over a hundred of em). Then I would empty the recycle bin, thinking that everything would be okay...so right after deleting those files I would probably receive 1GB of free space back...but then next thing I know it's back down to 0 bytes of free space, which means I did all of that deleting for nothing. I thought that once you deleted something from the recycle bin that it was permanently gone, at least that's how it worked with some of the other computers in the house. So what happened to those files that I deleted? Why is my hard drive constantly full no matter how many files I try to delete? Please help because alot of people depend on using this computer for school but they can't save anything anymore. THANKS!!!!!

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'm using WinXP SP2.

My 160G hard disk has four partitions:
C: 26G
D: 35G
E: 80G
F: 14G

My E: drive says it has 32G, free space. This is after I methodically deleted all unnecessary files. I know that the drive does not have approx. 50G of files on it!

I wish to reclaim at least 20G, hopefully 30G of space, that it says is not available.

I just performed a few virus/trojan scans and the drive is clean.
I also removed a bunch of restore points that were set for this drive.
I also just turned off restore points for this drive, which had been set to 12% of drive size.
When I checked the space available, this resulted in no new reclaimed space!

Does anyone here have tips on how I can reclaim at least 20-30G of disk space that I know does not contain files?

What steps do I need to perform to achieve this?

TIA

P.S. my other 3 drives do not have this problem (all of their taken space is legit).

So this is what i first thought to be the same old problem with windows device manager telling me the disk has 60gb free, and windows telling me its full... or so I thought. Lets start at the begging of this story... First I had been running dc++ and downloading stuff to my external hd, and one day, i notice it telling me that there is no space left on the disc. I check device manager, and it says that i have something like 5 gb left. So, I think its probably just a bunch of fragmented files sapping the remainder of the space. But, I was too lazy to defrag it at the time, since the drive is 200gb and over usb interface and was probably gonna take all night had i actually tried. So i change the download folder to my local hd, and run things that way for a while.

So, in about a week, I discover that my local hd has also been filled... time to take out the cyber-trash as it were (yes, device manager still said i had space left, but it was only like 5%, so i didn't think there was a problem). However, upon opening up about another 15% of my internal hd, i discovered that windows still told me my drive was full.

So I lurked around the intarweb and found the whole defrag then disk check method. Did that on my internal - worked fine. Did the same thing to my external, nada. I have 60 gb free, according to device manager, and can't upload an 8gb file onto it. I can, however, upload a 5.5 gb folder, but cannot upload a 6 gb file.

Hi,

I have a vaio T, with windows 7 ..

500 GB disk space, and the idiot who made the partition gave 25 GB to the C disk, that contains windows ..

Long story short, winsxs kept eating up the space, till I have absolutely nothing left now, and I can't even work, I can't see thumbnails, I can't open up images ..

I'm in online marketing, so I need this for my work ...

So now I freed up like 200 mb by deleting the download folder from the ServiceDistribution folder ..

But there is 900 mb taken by service pack 1 update thingy, and 2 GB+ taken by windows updates ...

I disabled windows updates, I just want to free those 3 GB so I can work with this computer for another year, till macbook air with retina comes up so I don't have to deal with this crap again ...


Now, when I use the disk cleanup, those files appear etc (3 GB to be freed), I click OK, it says do you want to delet these files, I click OK .. it runs the load bar for 30 seconds and so, and it closes, like it worked ..

But when I check the disk space, it just didn't work, sometimes it ends up eating like another 50 mb instead ...

I did scan disk couple times, defragmented ... nothing is working ..

Is there any method I can delete these files manually somehow ?

I'm really fruustrated and have work that needs to be done.

Really appreciate any answer.
Thanks

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.

Hi folks,

Lately I have downloaded a fair few movies, TV shows, concerts etc and I have started to become mindful of the dwindling amount of space available on my hard drive. I hope someone can help me with what are probably some pretty dumb questions...

I am wondering what others more expert than me do in this regard to free up disk space... do you burn those clunky video files that are taking up space on your hard disk to DVD-R's, and delete those files from your computer? I have probably got a fair amount of stuff in the 'non-essential' category that would not devastate me to delete from my computer, as long as I first burned to disc.

This is probably an even dumber question: I do regular weekly back-up to a 1 TB external hard drive. Having backed up lots of my clunky video files to an external hard drive, if I then delete those files from my computer, does this also delete the same (backed-up) files from the external hard drive?

Apologies for my ignorance. I am just hoping an expert or experts here might be able to give me some tips for 'best practice' for freeing-up disk space. Thanks in advance for any help offered!
 

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.

Hi,
I'm new to Windows 7, I need some help with a disk space issue.

I installed Ultimate on partition of 30gb. Based on my experience with Windows XP I thought it would be enough. Now I think it is too small.

Anyway free space seemed allright after initial installation but now after few months it is pretty full. I can't figure out what happened to the space. Because when I clean up some directories I notice that Windows 7 quickly starts to consume the free space.

What I'm trying to find out is what is taking up space. I don't know how.

I have unhidden all files/folders on the disk. When I select all files/folders and then access the properties I can see that the folders and files are taking op 13 GB.

So it seems there is other 'hidden-hidden data' on the disk than files/folders and that 'data' is taking up the remaining 17GB!

Any ideas on what it using this space and why? I'm not using system restore btw.

Is there a tool/utility you can recommend that can help manage disk space on Windows 7? I tried installing WinDirStat but that doesn't seem to work on Windows 7. I couldn't install it.

As a side note: too bad that Windows 7 didn't improve on utilities for managing disk space. It seems I cannot be done without third party tools?

Thanks in advance,
Onno

A:Help! (Free) disk space required to run Windows 7?

Hi Onno. Welcome to Seven Forums!

Perhaps you have the windows.old folder which is created when you clean install Win7 over XP or Vista. It resides in the root (C?) drive of the OS, stuffed with the entire prior OS including all your files.

We help people remove dual boots, rearrange their partitions, copy partitions and HD's, etc. every day here.

If you would like more specific advice please post back a screen snip of your full Disk Management map, using the snipping tool in Start Menu, attaching file using paper clip in reply box. Tell us what you would like to accomplish, and we'll give you the steps.

We've had good results using free Partition Wizard bootable CD to do almost any reconfiguration of HD. It has a great graphical interface with slider buttons to move partitions.

But there are very specific steps to be followed since if the boot critical files are moved, they need to be recovered using the Win7 DVD repair console which is also fully automated.

Hello, I'm a first-time poster and nearly computer illiterate-- but I'm learning.

I am using a Windows XP Pro on a Dell Inspiron 5100. My laptop is running pretty slow--especially on start-up, but more importantly, I have very little free disk space. I keep getting a little pop-up telling me I have X amount (under 200MB) of free disk space. So, I run disk clean-up, which helps a little. I finally decided it's time to try to run the disk defragmenter (it's been a long time since I have), but I need to free up 15% of my hard drive to run it.

I've deleted all the programs I'm comfortable deleting, I've deleted temporary files, lowered the percentage of space used for system restore, lowered the percentage of space used for temporary files, and I still only have 1% of free space. I've try to do some research, but everyone just says to run the defrag tool to free up space, no one says what to do if you can't run the tool.

Somewhere on this site, I found some free defrag downloads, but they haven't worked. For instance, DefragNT. I waited for 40 minutes while it analyzed disk C, and when it finished, it mysteriously closed. I waited another 40 minutes while it analyzed again, and then it froze after I tried to start defragmenting. I tried two different things from "Uniblue"; one was called "Registry Booster", and I can't remember the other one. They just "analyzed" also.

There is another issue... Read more

Hi. Since yesterday, My laptop suddenly started lagging a lot. I opened Task Manager and saw that the Disk Usage was at 100%! The only things causing it to rise are the essential Windows Programs. This causes so much lag though, that if I try to run more than 1 application at a time, nothing starts responding and it forces Me to Force Shutdown manually by holding the power button. I tried a new Browser (went from Firefox to Chrome) and still the same problem. I decided I want to upgrade to Windows 10, since I'm qualified to have it free, but whenever I try to install it, the "Checking for Updates" loading bar never finishes and if I try to close it or anything else, it'll freeze up all over again. Please help!

What should I do? I had to go into Safe Mode to be able to make an account here and type this up. I've already uninstalled some stuff, even though I barely have anything occupying a lot of space to begin with. I certainly didn't download anything malicious, as the day before it started lagging, it worked absolutely fine and haven't downloaded anything from then on.

Thank You!

Diagnostics Test

 System File Check

Please try following:
Open an admin command promptCopy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enterWhen it finished reboot your systemOpen again an admin command promptEnter sfc/scannow again
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.
System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.
