dell 10gb full

  sevenhills 15:22 04 Dec 2010


I have had this computer (Tesco, Dell basic desktop computer) for around 18 months and the computer (D) 10gb drive is showing 99.9% full, but it also has a 288gb drive the has loads of space.
I did delete some adobe files from (D), but when I needed them again, they were reinstalled to the same drive without option for another drive.

Surely the 10gb (D) drive is a restore drive.

Why aren't you using the 288gb C drive in the normal way and leaving D well alone?

maybe d is set as his main har5d drive.

If it's a Dell, I doubt it.

Will it be one drive partition in half, or two separate drives?

Depends on the model

Have you looked at the user manual?

CiG is right, the 10Gb partition is the restore partition. Then, that'll be one physical drive in the system.

I formatted the hard drive, that certainly freed up some space, lol
