A message pops up saying that my d drive has low disk space. how can I add more memory to the d drive?


Answers :

You can't add to the maximum capacity of a hard disk, but you can manipulate it in ways to make much better use of its space. First, do the normal things like deleting temporary internet files and all that, defragment your hard drive (I like MyDefrag. It's freeware), and see how many hard drives you have. Your laptop may say it has a recovery drive or something, and it may say you have one or two other hard drives. These are partitions. All disks are contained in one hard drive, because the drive has separate partitions. You can find ways to move partitions and the like. If your computer has a recovery partition, you really shouldn't mess that with because it's software that you paid for, and the only way to get the computer back to factory state. If your computer has more than one drive (i.e. C:, D:) make sure you're using the space on both of them. It's possible to move partitions, split a hard drive, combine them into one, etc, but you must read up and know what you're doing.\015\012
\015\012Finally, if you simply don't have enough space on your drive, you can get either get a larger capacity hard drive for the computer and move everything over (this is probably the most expensive because hard drives for notebooks are expensive and low capacity because they have to be so small), use an external hard drive, or use a desktop computer as a server.\015\012
\015\012An external hard drive connects to the notebook with usb and is the most easy to use. You can purchase one for relatively inexpensively. \015\012
\015\012If you're nerdy like me, you can use a desktop computer as a server. If you have a desktop computer that you already frequently use, you can set up file sharing between it and your notebook computer. If you already have a desktop computer, you can easily buy a very large capacity internal hard drive for not a whole lot of money. Desktop hard drives ("internal" drives) are the not as expensive as hard drives for laptops because they can be larger and run hotter. With this method, your money would be spent exclusively on disk space, and not on usb controllers or battery power efficient motors.\015\012
\015\012With an external drive or desktop computer (home server) you would move large files like movies from your laptop's drive to the larger drive. You can go to a little extra trouble and set your laptop to move files to the home server automatically.
Open control panel then open system properties select advanced open performance options goto advanced and click change you will see drive space chose custome size change the initial size to something near (not the same or above) the maximum size then reboot your pc.
