Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a sony vaio laptop with seemingly two internal hardrives but one is very full and the other virtually empty but i don't seem to be able to move stuff across to balance it? I keep getting a message saying I haven't enough space and to free it up but as I say theres acres on 'D' drive? Thanks Chris

Answers :

You probably only have one hard drive ,it may have two primary partitions ,look closely at the d drive,even though the pie graph says is empty ,the physicall size in mb,kb,gb,could be small,so basically your moving things on your full "c" drive to a small partition on your full "c"drive labeled" d "drive,if this is not the case,go to controll panel/system/,device manager ,and observe hard disk properties,if you have two hard drives,you will see two hard drives listed,usually the cd-rom takes the "d" drive position,and an extra hard drive will be your"E"drive,but a single drive with two primary partitions,forces the cd-rom to be "e"drive,this configuration often causes problems with cd/dvd-rom drives,just a side note ,in case it applies to your situation,hope this helps,post a comment if you need more help,aloha from maui todd0708
