Hard disk drive D reads 9.16 used GB space....the free disk reads 1.24 space. That is only 1/4 of the whole pie shown. I was told that I still have a lot of space...how is that?


Answers :

Hello your D: drive is most likely a Windows Operating system backup drive only to use when your computer crashes so you do not use Drive D: for anything on your system Drive C: however is your main system drive where all of your programs are kept you should have a 320GB hard drive if im not mistaken but the drive is Portioned which means basicly windows takes a piece of the 320 GB drive and sets it up as another Drive which is your Drive D and all the rest is on your Drive C so if you check the settings on your drive C you should have plenty of space available this is why you have a lot of space left im assuming if your C drive isn't full
There may be errors on the disk that cause the free space to be reported wrong.
