My C: Drive has absolutely no space at all (0 bytes) and I cannot uninstall programs, as there is not enough room for them to create temp files. I also cannot create a screenshot as Paint won't save (even to my E: drive) and Photoshop won't load.
Please help me and tell me how I can free up a lot of space (as I did have about 16 GB free and have not put ANY more files on the C: drive since I had that much free
I have tried ALL of the Disk Cleanup options and the Disk Defragmentor; none of them clear up anything.
My laptop was supposed to have 80GB when I bought it, however, I noticed, after I bought it, it had two drives, each at 40GB; thus, I assumed it was either partitioned or there were two seperate drives...anyway, that is beside the point. What is the problem is this:
I orignally put ALL of my files on the C: drive, however, a few months ago my C: drive was getting extremely full. I had about 3 GB of space left, so what I did was took all of my documents, music, pictures, videos, etc and put them all on the E: drive (which was the other 40GB of my laptop). This gave my C: drive a healthy 16GB of free space (or something like that) and my E: drive also had about 20GB of free space.
However, recently, within the last two weeks, I noticed that my C: drive had somehow got really full again, it was in the red and had about 1GB of free space , so I tried Disk Cleanup and uninstalling uneeded programs. I did this and it only cleared up about 300MB of space. So I just left it.
Now, I was just innocently browsing the Internet on my laptop on Saturday and I got a pop-up at the bottom telling me my C: Drive was running dangerously low (or something along those lines), so I checked it and it said it had about 200MB free, so I did Disk Cleanup, which added about 245MB of free space and I left it at that.
Today, it told me that I only had 100MB of free space althogether on the Drive! So I tried Disk Cleanup which only gave me about 67KB of free space. After that, I tried Disk Defragmenter and that made the problem worse and left me with only 43KB of space left altogether. That's when I got worried, so I tried to uninstall a program to clear up space and it told me it needed about 1,634KB in order to create a temp. file to uninstall the program.
I now look at my C: drive and it tells me there is literally 0 bytes of space left.
This means I cannot uninstall ANY program to free up space and Disk Cleanup also does not clear up much as I have already done it.
Please can ANYONE help me???
I am getting very worried, as it tells me my system may become unstable with lower than 300MB free on the C: drive and System Restore would also not work under 300MB.
I'd be EXTREMELY grateful.
Thank you in advance, and sorry for my lack of computer knowledge.
