What does disk clean up do?
The Disk Cleanup tool simply helps you to delete data you are not using. It will look for things like log files, the Internet cache, and other things, and you can select what categories you want to delete. You can also go to the advanced options and remove all but the last of the System Restore images. Then when you are done and want to commit the options selected on the first page, you click okay.
A good way to free up disk space is to run the windows disk clean up utility by going to "start" and in the search bar type in disk cleanup. Run it and delete all of the files it asks you want to delete. Also you can run the Disk Defragmenter utility to move files around to better places on your computer. I would suggest to download CCleaner to clean the computer.
When you try to copy a file to a drive it gives you a disk clean up message when you have space on the drive?
Disk defragmentation organises the file structure of harddisk by gathering files that are stored in fragments & piecing them together to form a large fragments. It makes the drive function more quickly & reduce the amount of hops to read single file. Disk clean up will delete all the junk & temporary files & will increase the speed of ur computer by creating more space
What is the best administrative tool to use to correct the problem of slow computer response to applications?
Probably the two tools built-in to Windows.... Disk Clean, and Disk Defrag. Disk Clean removes unwanted files (such as cookies, broken short-cuts etc.) Disk Defrag moves the files around the disk to 'eat up' fragmented space, and put file fragments back together. You may also want to use the MSCONFIG and disable unnecessary programs who load at start up.
Yes, you can have them. Try doing Disk Clean up and then running disk defragmenter (found in Accessories>System Tools) to help condense the areas where things are saved. If most of the drive is fragmented, then you should think seriously about backing up your documents, etc. on a disk and consider shopping for a new harddrive and/or computer.
If you are able to hook the drive up to a clean system, do not run any programs that are on the infected disk. You may then be able to run a virus scan on the infected disk and clear up any virus's it contains. If you can't scan the whole disk, or the scan isn't successful in fixing or quarantining the virus, run another virus scan on the folders you need to retrieve data…
