I do it to free up space on the hard drive.
The OS (operating system) takes up space on the drive.
There are many ways to increase the storage space on your computer. You can obtain and additional external hard drive that will give you more storage space when attached to your computer. You can also move existing files from your computer's internal hard drive to an external hard drive to clear up space on the internal hard drive. You can also compress files on your computer that you do not use often to free up space on your hard drive.
well, first off disk defragmenter doesn't free up any hard drive space, it does what the name implies. Just defrags the memory on your computer. The only way to free up space on your computer is with add/remove programs. You then would remove certain programs you don't use anymore. You can change the drop down box to size so you can see which programs on you computer are taking up the most space then by deleting the ones you use less frequently you will free up hard drive space i.e C:\ see related links for a program which lets you see what is taking up space on your hard drive.
It provides more space if your drive is fragmented. It's like cleaning up your room, everything is neatly organised leaving more free space.
In order to see the free space on a hard drive, you can go to My Computer (or Computer in newer versions of Windows) and right clicking the hard drive you want to see. Go to properties and there will be a pie chart showing used vs empty space on the hard drive. Another useful tool is Treesizefree (look on google). This tool will show you what is on your hard drive and organize it all by size, so you can see what is taking up space.
both save up memory on your computer but if you have a flash drive then you can carry it around and use it on other computers. but a hard drive has a lot of free space to save stuff
Disk clean up is used to free space on the hard disk so that space can be used to store some other data on the hard drive. It is also called as computer maintenance utility.
Defragmenting a computer is cleaning up space that is not being used on the computer. The purpose is to free up hard drive space so the computer runs faster.
On average, once every 2 weeks.
Disc space is the amount of computer storage space on random-access memory devices, such as on a hard drive, floppy or USB flash drive. Free up disc space by running a disc clean-up, removing unused applications, and removing duplicate files.
Buy another hard drive, or delete some of the content on your current one. You could also consider a disk defragement to free up some space, cleaning temporary files aswell. If you get a new hard drive make sure it uses the same connector type and you can either add it as a separate drive or you can move everything on the current one to a bigger on and end up with one big drive with free space and all the previous data on it.
Yes Deleting from your mac, frees up Hard drive space.
Nope - temporary internet files simply take up space on your hard-drive... Deleting them will not harm your computer - but will free up disk space.
the easiest way is the remove old programs you rarely ever use. Games take up the most mem.
The easiest way, on windows, is to open up "my computer" and right-click on your hard drive (usually drive C or D) and select properties. Total, used, and free space is displayed with a pie chart.
when you install to the hard drive 5-7gb
the easiest way is to do a scan on ur fier wall and check the files in the computer and then do a hard drive clean up
Part depends on the TYPE of backup. A "standard" file backup will use far less space, as it only backs up the actual data on the drive. to find out how much data is on your drive, open up "My Computer" and right click on the drive you wish to backup. The information box that appears will show the drive capacity, and the free space. Subtract the free space from the drive capacity to estimate the data size. Another type of backup is called a "drive image". This type will make an exact duplicate of you hard drive onto another drive. for this type of backup, you must have a 80 gig (or larger) backup drive. Steve
Go into my computer, click add and remove programs towards the top, and uninstall programs you no longer need. If you can't free up enough space by doing this consider adding a second hard drive.
Yes, you can, but you a flash drive with a lot of free space.
Nope, you should just get a bigger hard drive. If you don't want to just back up your files on your flash drive. External hard drives will also work if you need space, but a 120 GB hard drive runs around $40.00 - $70.00.
there are some software for this purpose like CCleaner..you can also map tha hard drive with treesize (google it) and check large files.
A disadvantage of a hard disk drive is that it takes up alot of space and could be heavy
If you're thinking of replacing your hard-drive - then yes ! The vastly increased capacity will not only give you much more space for programs and data, but the computer will also make use of the extra free-space on the hard-drive - which will speed-up your system.
