Having problems with your Sony VAIO PCV-RS530G PC Desktop ?

Low memory on C drive

\015 I've transferred all high memory files (pics etc.) from the C drive to the D drive or my external hard drive. I keep getting low memory dialogs and many things won't download even though I thought I had specified them to go to the D Drive. Can I switch the C and D drives purposes or do I have to buy more memory? It seems like the memory ran out on the C drive pretty quickly.The C drive has 14 gigs and the D has 129. Thanks in advance for your help.\015

Answers :

I have same model computer and discovered that, like you, Sony had irresponsibly set up the computer to have two partitions on the 160 GB HD, setting the "C" system drive to only 15 GB, and the unused D drive to the remaining 130 or so GB.

Even if you save all your user data to the "D" drive, you can still run out of space on the 15 GB "C" drive if you have applications that require a lot of that space (MS Office suite, graphics and media apps, etc.)

Truly the setup is an unjustifiable procedure on their part. I called tech support but did not get any encouraging help - beyond them telling me to reformat to a size I preferred...

I ended up saving off all data, then reformatting and repartitioning the hard drive, and reloading the Windows OS and applications and data. Not for the faint of heart.
While there are a few paid tools you can buy that claim to re-size partitions on-the-fly without requiring you to save off and reformat, I have no experience with them. They may be fine... or not...

Mostly I am just incredulous that Sony could have ever thought it a good idea to assign the smallest space to the C drive OS partition.
U also need to check your desktop, recycle bin and etc...

Recommend u to run CCleaner to free up hdd space.
