Windows Disk Manager doesn't show free space

Q: Windows Disk Manager doesn't show free space

Good day guys,
well, I was just installing Linux Fedora on my computer (I wanted a Dual-Boot with Win7) but I noticed that I don't have second partition. So I deleted some useless files (trash, games, etc.) back on Win7, and Voala, I just gained around 60GB of free space. I decided to creat new partition on disk manager. And here is the problem. It shows free space, as good as Explorer, but when it comes to that graph below, it doesn't show me free space. I shrinked it, but only gained 6GB of free space, where I can create new partition. I know it sounds complicated, but here is the picture.

I guess I'm doing somethin' wrong, what is it?
My Windows is in Czech language, but I made notes in the picture in English

A: Windows Disk Manager doesn't show free space

Try starting over. Put the Windows partition back the way it was. Make sure everything works normally. Reboot a couple times etc.. and run some apps to make sure nothing is acting weird. Then defrag the Windows partition to move the files toward the front of the partition. That should allow you to shrink to a greater amount of free space.

Always a good idea to make backup images along the way before risking your system.

edit: by "put it back the way it was" I mean delete the 6 GB partition you made, then expand the Windows partition to the end of the free space. Then use the system for awhile as suggested to make sure nothing got broken, before defragging.

edit2: also make sure you leave enough room for page file expansion etc..

Hi everyone!

This is my first post on this forum

My Hard Drive is almost full but I don't understand why. I've check how many space was left on my C:\ with its property windows and it says "22GB left" but when I enter the C:\ drive and I select all the files and then toggle the property windows, it says that only 92.5 GB is used...Is there any "invisible" files that I don't see?

Hello again,

I've got a question about this, since it seems kind of too much of a difference. I got an SSD disk of 60gb with my windows installation and few software. The disk today shows 3gb free space, (out of total 55.8) but the size of all it's folders inside (including hidden ones is 43). There is a difference of 10 GB somewhere. I've read that windows reserve 5-10% of the disk for something (not sure if it's true), but still it doesn't explain the difference. I've ran disk cleanup to free space, nothing changed. This is becoming annoying since if it keeps up, the disk will be full extremely soon.

Hello to all.

I have a problem with my windows 7 pro laptop that shows only 7,49/100 GB free memmory. I tried to delete all shadow copies and previous versions. Also did chckdsk /f which give me 0 errors, tried to search in hidden and OS files, but there arent any big files, diskcleanup with system files cleaned about 1 gb.
Then I downloaded winDirStat which shoved me that I only have 43Gb of data on my c: drive. I don't have any ideas what could be done to increase free disk space. Please help

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Delete the existing SYSTEM partition. It only has 5 MB of free space, that's what setup is complaining about. It will create a new one, or just put the system files on the OS partition.

Hi!

This is my first post here, there seems to be some people here who might be able to help, so I guess it's worth a try.

The problem here is: my Windows XP (with SP1) won't free up space when I delete a file. At first I thought it was a MFT problem with only one of the NTFS partitions, but not much later I found out this is affecting all my 3 partitions, 2 of them are NTFS5 and one is FAT32. So I guess Windows is the problem, it has nothing to do with hardware. I have tried lots of things: scandisk, Win Doctor, chkdisk, virus and spyware check, but they didn't report or fix anything.

If that wasn't weird enough, the free space I had lost due to the problem in one of the partitions came back after a few days. This probably happened for all of them, but I just noticed in one because the wasted space was over 1 GB. Well, the space was back but unfortunately the problem wasn't solved, so I'm still unable to delete files without losing the space.

Just to test, today I tried using the recovery console to delete a file and see what happens, and it works fine, it deletes and recovers the space, yet another proof it has nothing to do with hardware.

The rest of the file system is fine, no data loss, corruption or anything like that.

PS: please avoid messages like: "format your HD" or something like that. I know that would solve the problem but right now I have tons of files I would need to backup and tons of programs I would have to reins... Read more

Hi,

I have a small problem with my Windows 7. Here's what happened:

Yesterday, my pc was running fine. I turned it on at 10am and it was running well. My sister ordered a new router so I set it up for her (AirPort Extreme). I installed the utility for it, was a simple setup for me. After that, I connect to it wirelessly and I see that windows update has a few security updates. They install as I turn off the pc. I then turn it back on a few hrs later and notice that when it reaches the login screen, it takes a few secs for it to load. This is unusual being that the days before it was always ready to receive input. So I login, get the welcome screen, and my desktop screen. Taskbar loads as usual, however I can't get anything to show up when I click on it. I think at first that its Comodo (is in training mode) so I close it out. Still nothing. I then press ctrl+alt+delete. Nothing. I then press it rapidly to see what happens. After a few mins, my screen turns black. A message then shows up that ctrl+alt+delete has been pressed but due to something that it won't show up. Had to press either the power button or esc to leave the screen. Safe mode works. I do a system restore back to when the windows update and to the installation of the router. I scanned and haven't found anything yet. Today, my pc looks like its running fine but its still taking a few secs on the login screen and the desktop still idles. I'm going to contact HP to see what they can do b... Read more

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

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.

Hi I'm a newby so not sure yet of how you guys work.

In a fit of stupidity I installed Ubuntu on my laptop, and went with dual boot, but it just would not see my WiFi router regardless of what I tried, so got rid of it following some online advice, using the bootrec.exe/fixmbr command, which now allows me to boot straight into Vista.

However, if you look at the pic attached you will see I have a huge lump of free space 41.64gb free space which I can't use for anything.

Is there a way for me to re-combine the 41.64gb free space with the C: drive again, the options allowed are displayed in the pic, also there is another slice of the drive 5.37gb which I'd also like to be able to use.

I'm not sure I've made my self clear on what I'd like to acheive, which is to bring both of theses slices back in to the C: drive.

On right clicking the 5.37gb drive the only option is Help, as neither of theses slices has a drive letter I don't see how I can do anything to them.

The only options I have for the 41.64gb free space seems to be to make a simple volume (not sure what that actually means) or delete the partition.

I'd like to get back to how it was before I installed Ubuntu, IE a C: & S: with no more partitions, preferably without having to re-install Vista.

Thanks in hopeful anticipation.

A:Old Windows XP disk doesn't recognize all HDD space

Hi PublicEnemy and welcome to TSF !

The 137GB limit with older XP install disks is a known limitation of the OS. You need an XP SP1 or later CD to be able to format a partition larger than 137GB during the XP installation.

Right-click my computer and click manage. Go to disk management and you'll notice some unpartitioned space. Right-click it to create a partition. Use the default values and assign it a volume letter and the missing space will become available as if it was a new drive. Keep in mind that it's actually on the same physical drive than the first partition. Don't use it to backup valuable data from the other partition since if the hard drive fails one day you'll lose both partitions.

I defrag the e partition and it says 23 or 20 or something GB free... windows explorer said 30mb which has gradually decreased till now where it says 0kb free haha...

Using windows 7 repair the disk letters are not the same as when in windows os. when in windows all drives (disks, dvd-roms, and usb backup drive) are lettered as they should be. the system reserved partition is not lettered and only shows up in disk management. no problems with booting up and using windows or any apps.
When going into repair ether by the f8 on boot or using the windows install disk or by using the repair disk and selecting command prompt >diskpart.>list volume the screen shows that the system reserved partition is assigned letter C and the windows system is assigned letter E. there is no usb drive listed. When trying to restore system image from the repair menu the windows system image is listed as drive E. and no backup image can be found.
From what I have read the system reserved partition should not have a letter assigned but when I remove the volume letter it returns. also you cannot change the volume letter of any drive containing the windows system.

How to fix repair so in the event of a hard drive failure I will be able to restore the image to the new drive.

BTW the usb drive is recognized in the BIOS.

A:windows repair and windows disk manager show different drive letters

Drive letters are a Windows software feature - nothing to do with hardware.

Boot into a Linux CD and it will identify partitions by the labels which are written to the HDD.

Windows shows those same labels, but it also invents drive letters.

I believe when you power up into Live Windows it remembers what the letters were previously by a registry entry.

A Windows Boot CD does not use the same registry so it invents a new set of letters for the duration.

I have a 40GB Hard Drive partitioned into two windows xp partitions and one hidden recovery partition. The C: Drive has my bootable Windows XP(16 GB),the F: Drive has a 19GB Non-bootable Windows XP logical partition, 1 GB is used by the hidden recovery partition. Recently, I downloaded big files to my non-bootable partition, extracted and zipped them into CD Size files for burning. After burning I deleted all these files BY Right Clicking on them then delete or highlighted them then used the Delete Key on the keyboard, ran disk clean up and then fragmented the non-bootable partion. To my surprise, the volume on the non-bootable partition shrank exponentially from almot 15 GB free space to 2GB. No matter how many times I cleaned the partition, fragmented it. These deleted files are still taking space from the partition and I don't seem to know where they reside. I cleaned the recycler that is showing in the same partition but to no avail. My question is, where do the deleted files in a non-bootable partition go after being deleted? Certainly, they don't go to C: Drive recycle bin because I already checked there.I even tried to work from Safe Mode but no luck yet. The volume is shrinking exponentially and every file I delete still subtracts from the partition's volume although when I selected all showing and hidden files, the volume is not even 10% of what is used from the partition.

Two of my USB external Hard drives, a Fantom 600 GB and a Western Digital My Book 500GB cannot be seen in My Computer. I can see them in Device Manager and that says that they are working properly and the drivers are up to Date. In Disk Manager the 2 external drives had a black bar unlike the other drives which had blue bars. The 2 external disks had a number assigned to them but no letter.

I have tried diskpart in the command prompt, was able to assign a letter, then had to format the drives and they did show up in My computer as valid empty external hard drives with the correct amount of space on them. But when I tried to recover the backed up data for one of the disks (less than a third of the capacity of either drive) they went back to not being recognized by My Computer ans in disk manager had a black line with no letter again.

I just went through that process again, got both drives back and tried to recover the backed up files to my Fantom drive and lost the Fantom drive once again.

I am attaching screen shots of my current My Computer (Computer in 7) Device Manager and Disk Manager. In Device Manager you can see the Fantom. The My Book is the WD 5000AAV. In Disk Manager the My Book shows healthy with Disk 1 and the letter L. The Fantom is Disk 2 with no letter and a black bar. In My computer, the My Book is there but not the Fantom.

A:External drives show in Device Manager & Disk Manager but not Computer

Hi Dick1030,

Welcome to Seven Forums.


Please do as follows:

1. It is unusual for the System Reserved Partition to have a drive letter. Please remove the drive letter.

2. Please remove (always Safely Remove) all the external drives including any card reader and do a drive cleanup as indicated here. http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/298744-usb-thumb-drives-not-recognised-not-drive-letter.html#post2477076 It will clean your system of all non-present devices and you will be starting with a clean slate.(Incidentally this can resolve many drive letter assignment confusion of Windows OS, as you can see in the referenced thread.)

3. After you reboot on completion of the drive cleanup, plugin only your WD My Book and the Fantom drive. As you plug-in the driver for each device will be installed ab-initio. You can watch it.

4. Now take a screenshot of the Disk Management and post. While taking the screenshot, click on "Show/Hide Console Tree” and “Show/Hide Action Pane” buttons on the toolbar on top to hide those and also pull up the center partition line up as much as possible so that we get a clear and full view.





5. Also tell us whether you are sure that you had formatted the Fantom drive and it contains data and whether you want to recover the data..


(Your statements and the screenshots are so confusing - atleast to me - it is necessary that you do the above and restate the problem.)

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.

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

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?

Hello sonugsaroj, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you solve this since you have this thread marked solved?

If not, then you should be able to right click on the green partition, and click on "Delete" until it shows as "Unallocated".

Afterwards, you could extend C: into the "Unallocated" space to add it back to C.

I use Windows XP professional SP3 with a 500 GB Hard disk partitioned as
C (300 GB0 and D ((200 GB).

Yesterday I went to C properties to do a disk cleanup (after cleaning all temps, defragging etc...) and to my surprise disk C shows an incredible
80 GB used space when in fact it should be only 13 GB as I have always noticed. Disk D shows the correct amount of used space as 11 GB.

I recently deleted like 8 movie copies (each 4.7 GB) from my hard disk (they are too large to go to the Recycle bin so they are erased on the spot).

I have not installed any software in the past month (all softwares that I have installed are on partition D) so I only have the system files on C and 2 or 3 applications totalling about 13 GB.

I don't know why windows explorer shows 80 GB on C and I am looking for help to fix it. I googled the issue but only found related issues from years
2000 thru 2008 giving different solutions (but the issues weren't exactly like the one I am experiencing althought they were all related to windows not showing the correct amount of disk space.

I have searched for files larger than 1 GB with no results, none of my docs, pics, videos exceed a few MB. I need help to fix this.

How did you do this switching back and forth from MBR to GPT??

Stay away from dynamic disks at all costs. Just say no if they are ever offered.

What is this disk's purpose? Data only? OS? Data and OS?

Do you want just a single partition on it?

I'm not sure how I ended up like this, but using Computer Manager > Disk Manager, I ended up with my disk 0 as follows:

System Reserved
85MB NFTS
Healthy (System, Active, Primary partition)

16MB
Unallocated

System (C)
139.64 GB NTFS
Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)

In addition, I have four other hard disks, and they are correctly formatted and partitioned (one partition each -- which is what I want with disk 0).

Objective: reclaim the unallocated 16MB and add it to the healthy section; likewise, reclame the "System Reserved" and also add it to the healthy section.

I'm rebuilding the system and don't have much software, so I could reload Windows 7 (Professional), but I'd rather avoid reloading those 100 fixes!

What should I do?

A:Using Disk Manager, need to unshrink and reclaim Disk 0 space

Just extend System Reserved into the 16mb space which was shrunk from it: Partition or Volume - Extend.

The rest looks correct although it would be best to see a screenshot of your maximized Disk Mgmt map with listings.

Make sure none other than SysReserved are marked Active.

I'm trying to get Realtek installed and i do manage to install it without getting a failure message or whatsoever. But the problem is that it does not work.

I installed and removed many codecs and versions of realtek, it just doesn't show in the device manager.

The only thing i see is High Definition Audio Device, and not Realtek.

How can i get realtek correctly installed??

thanks in advance.

A:Realtek doesn't show in Device Manager

You didn't fill in the system spec's. Makes it hard to figure out what you have without it.

Generally the High Definition Audio Device is the sound module. Does the sound work, just that it's not showing "RealTek"? Did it ever work? If you upgraded from XP, you need Vista/Windows 7 specific drivers, the XP drivers usually are not compatible.

I unlocked my AMD Phenom II X2 CPU to 4 core, but the Windows not show it.
The Task Manager not show it and CPU-Z show only 2 cores. But the Device manager and a BIOS shows all the 4 cores.

I found this solution for the problem, but it is not working. When I do these steps the Windows restarts, but nothing happens. Maybe because I use a Windows 8 and a never version of EasyBCD.

What can I do for working 4 cores?

A:Task manager doesn’t show all CPU cores

You could try opening msconfig, boot options tab. Click advanced and ensure that the "Number or processors" checkbox is unchecked. This is the default setting but sometimes people change it based on misguided advice.

Unlocking CPU cores is always a gamble. In many cases the cores were locked for a reason, such as being defective.

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.

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?m about to commite suicide so I just wanted to make a final query before I do it.

I have a 320 GB western digital HD, it has windows 7 (x64) in one partition and data in the other.
I used paragon partiton manager to redistribute the free space (don?t ask me why didn?t I use the W7 features please). It did, but the partition with all the data was "not formatted". It showed the exact used and free space (so no data loss) but I couldn?t have acces to it. I manged to convert it to NTFS... still showed the right used and free space, but no luck having acces to the files.

So I used the W7 function to check the disk... and after it finishes it the partition with the data is empty, the OS partition is intact, but the other one is empty.

I tried everything, so I?m not actually asking for a solution, my question is:
Given the fact that I haven?t erased the partition or deteled it or have done anything other than redistribute the free space... will a professional HD recovery be able to restore the filesystem or the files?

Thanks in advance.

A:EMpty partition after redistributing free space with paragon manager

Use free Partition Wizard bootable CD which has helped with hundreds of complicated partitioning operations here without a single failure. Partition Wizard

First from the Wizards tab, run Partition Recovery Wizard to see what it finds. When you identify the lost partition by size and space usage, tick the box next to it and restore it.

If this fails, use the Data Recovery Wizard or Recuva data Recovery software.

In the future, always keep your files backed up externally and ask here for exact steps to repartition or "redistribute free space" (whatever that means).

Hi all. I am having a problem with installing Windows 7 on my netbook (Novero Solana). I did a clean install (wiped out Windows 8) and when using a USB boot install of Windows 7, I encountered the following error (Disk 0 Unallocated Space):

"Windows 7 install Error "Setup was unable to use existing system partition because it does not contain the required free space".

The other partition on my netbook is System Reserved (Disk 0 Partition 1: System Reserved), but I don't want to touch it, as I have heard it contains important files e.g. bootup.

Attached is the screenshot of the "Install Windows" screen displaying the partitions. Help would be much appreciated.

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. I tried to put the file in a folder to check if... Read more

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.

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

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?

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

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).

*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!!!!!

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
