low hard drive space

Recommended Posts

One of my hard drives has no space on it, which is fine, the problem is windows keeps trying to free space up on it by doing some program that continuously pops up in the system tray. Is there a way i can kill it forever as its driving me mad.

 

edit this is the bastard:

Thats on a totally different hard drive, this is the music drive.

You can buy a massive hard drives for not much dosh these days. if thats not an option....

 

can you backup some of the less frequently used crap to dvd?

 

you could download one of those 'clean up' programs that scan the disc for shite

 

try changing the size of the recycle bin on the drive or drives - default is 10% of each drive iirc.

The recylce bin is disabled on my pc, if its deleted its gone. That hard drive contains only mp3s so there is no "shite" other then some dubious music. There is no page file on that hard drive. The space isnt the issue, its windows crapping itself over the fact a tertiary hard drive is full.

 

The files are accessed on a regular basis and i have no requirement for more space. All i want is shot of the message.
