Random low disk problem

January 8, 2012 at 22:21:09
Specs: Windows 7
I just recovered from a major blue screen issue on my laptop; Windows 7. Now something really bothers me, this random "Low disk space" issue pops up on my screen and it affects my computer performance in a very mediocre state - Meticulously i checked all my files and tried to find what to uninstall but their wasn't much programs on my laptop that took a wide amount of space. My documents contain about, around, 800 to 900 bytes i guess? And I do not have a wide variety of ranges of files that would cause my computer to go on the notorious 'low disk' problem.

Sometimes i get confused, Am i being baffled? is windows 7 playing games with me? Is Bill Gates just bored? - I`d be glad if someone proved me wrong.

You took a whole paragraph to say nothing useful in identifying your problem.
How large is your hard disk? Is it partitioned into more than one drive? If so how big is each partition?
What does Computer Management> Disk management have to say about your drive total space and used/unused space? 800 to 900 bytes is meaningless. Do you mean MBs ? How much ram does your system have?
Have you run any housekeeping routines such as disk cleanup? Maybe you should get CCLEANER slim. http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/bu...

Click on Computer, then right click on the C: drive & click Properties - what does the pie chart show?

Well, it obviously shows that all the space i have left is occupied although i did not even download many programs or files. I have like 247MB free from 14.6GB.

if i had to 'do the math' in this situation, i think that due to the blue screen that afflicted my laptop, i was forced to install a new window in my computer - Maybe all the programs i had on my earlier windows that got corrupted took alot of space in the hard drive? But if this fact might be true, then how can i open the other window i was using and how may i uninstall the programs if the blue screen shuts down my computer automatically?

Why are you running Win7 on a 15GB partition (or hard drive)? Of course it will fill up quickly, it's simply not big enough. Microsoft recommends a minimum of 16GB for Win7 32-bit, 20GB for 64-bit.
