Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

I am getting a message that my drive d has low disk space available please help me..


Answers :

This means that your drive D: is running out of space.

1) Make sure that D: is actually a hard drive, i.e. you have
two hard disk on the machine, or a single drive that has
been divided into several partitions.

If drive D: is a CD-ROM then windows is not configured
correctly, or you have a CD/ DVD burning driver that is
acting strange.

2) Double click on MyComputer on the desktop or single
click on MyComputer in the start menu.

3) Right click on drive D:, then click on properties.
This will show you a pie chart of drive usage on D:

4) If the drive looks almost full, then the messages you
are getting are correct. Also check the numbers above
the pie chart, this will tell you how much space you
actually have.

5) If the drive is full, you have 3 choices:

1) Delete some files
2) Move them to another drive or CD
3) Get a bigger hard drive.

6) Finally browse through the folder on D: drive to see what
is taking up all the room:

Note:
-------

1 TB (Terra-byte) =
1,000 GB's (Giga-bytes) =
1000,000 MB's (Mega-bytes)
\015\012

a) Movies take the most room, up to 4GB
b) Music WAV files are next, about 60 MB per song
c) Music MP3 files take about 5 MB per song
d) JPG pictures require about 1.5 MB per image

7) An older hard drive should hold at least 60 to 200 GB
Drives up to 1 TB = 10^12 bytes are now available for
under $200.00

If your drive is less than 60 Gigs for a desktop computer,
it's time to replace it.

8) If, on the other hand, you find a huge number of small files,
with cryptic names full of random numbers and characters,
you may have a computer VIRUS, filling up your hard drive.

Scan your machine with an anti-virus program such as:
AVG, McAfee, Kaspersky .... and remove the virus.

9) To replace a hard drive, first install a new drive in the
computer, partition and format it, copy your data onto the
new drive and than you can either keep or remove the old
one, depending on how small it is. If it is very small in
relation to the new one, you might as well take it out.

10) Also keep in mind that older computers may not be
able to take full advantage of the new hard drives that
are now coming out.

If you computer is more than 5 years old, this may very
well be the case. Modern computers are astronomically
more powerful and faster then they were 5 years ago,
virtually doubling in speed and power every six months.

So are the hard drives sizes.

Hope this helps, pleas rate my answers.

If you're D:\\ is a hard drive, you can delete non needed data to free up hard drive space. At today prices for hard drives you might consider buying a larger size drive. Like this drive. http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=117008
\015\012This is a PATA/IDE drive. Seagate warrants their drives for five years. You will not run out of drive space any time soon.
