How can one increase computer storage?
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.

If you only have 9 percent space free on your C Drive is there anyway you can free up space if you have already tried using disk defragmenter disk cleanup up and add or remove files?
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.

How do you find free hardrive space on my computer?
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.

Asked in Computers, Hard Disk Drives
What do you do if your C drive is out of disk space?
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.

You computer is 80 GB hard drive you need back up the external hard drive must be same as 80gb?
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
