Dear Forum Members,


I understand issues of the Data D: Drive have been discussed previously, but the following seems fairly unique.


My Data D: drive is full, used space 393GB, free space 7.31MB. I do not intentionally save any documents on it.


My C: drive has used space 146GB, 133GB free.


How is my Data D: drive so full, when my C: drive is not, and what can I do to free up space?


Kind regards,

There are some disk utilities you can use to resize the partitions on your drive to give more space to other partitions you want to expand. You can try Partition Wizard Minitool or Easeus Partition Master.

 I'd start the Windows Explorer and look to see what's on the D: drive.  393 GB is a whole lot of data, so I have to believe you'd find some large files & folders there that can be deleted.  If you need a better tool for examining the drive, you could download Treesize from www.jam-software.com/treesize_free.  It's a free program.


Good luck.

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

you can download the free program "WinDirStat", which scans your drive and shows you all the files in the drive, sorted by size.


oops, wpgwpg already posted a related program, but i prefer windirstat since its newbie friendly and free!
