No more space...

This laptop just said that I am out of space. It is running Win Vista. Why does it have the hard drive split into two drives? C and D. Can't I make D smaller to give C more space or something? It gives me an option to compress the C drive to gain space but it says that this will slow down searches and such. Is it worth it?

People take these things too seriously!

Try cleaning all the crap out of it and stop saving everything. system restores, porn you dont need, etc etc

try using a external hard drive to save your work or what ever

the d partition depending on the computer might be the recovery part of it.

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

how big are each of your partitions?

If you have a lot of space on the D partition, move shit over there.

You can't resize your partitions w/o wiping the drive and starting over or using a 3rd party software. Generally it causes issues if you are trying to mess with the partition the OpSys is on.

Partition Magic and Partition Commander let you... along with several others...

If D is a recovery partition, there's probably not anything extra it can give up anyway.

with windows vista microsoft included the ability to dynamically resize partitions, you guys need to get up to date on this stuff. Win7 can do it too.

I just tried it and it only allows me to shrink the D drive, but it moves the space to a new unallocated location, not to C.

You should have left the D: drive and just moved all your porn and mp3s over to it.
Leave your OS and installed apps on C: Then put all your personal files on D:
Now when you back up stuff - backup D:
