i installed a new printer. after installing it, my local disc C and my cd-rw, disc R dissappeared from My Computer and wouldn't work. i did a system restore which didn't resolve the problem. i used Help, which advised me to reinstall my drivers. i did this and got both the C and R drives back. but also gained a backup D disc. i now run out of memory very fast and keep getting error messages about insufficient memory. could the D drive be causing this ? can i delete it without causing any damage or losing my C and R drives again ?
my computer is a packard bell iconnect, using millenium edition. 800 megahertz Intel Celeron. 32 kilobyte primary memory cache. 128 kilobyte secondary memory cache. 256 Megabytes Installed Memory. c: (on drive 0) 19.01 GB 14.39 GB free . d: (on drive 0) 1.39 GB 95 MB free
25paul, from what you are saying above, you shoul dhave no problem with memory. I don't understand why you have gained a new partition, unless it was already there but hidden. Is one of your applications trying to save to the D drive?
25paul where did you ger disk R from and what is it, if you hacd 1 HB and a CD ROM there should be Dricea A: C: & D:also E: if you have your disk partitioned, R have me baffeled, what OS are you using, try reducing the 128 KB secondary memory, is your drive compressed?
hgrock, when I format/reinstall my os one of the first things I do is change the assigned cd and dvd drive letters, usually to Y: and Z:. I do this to prevent my cd/dvd drives being affected should I add a new hdrive or partition, this may be why 25paul has a disk R:
