Hi,

I apologize that I did not get you on chat. However, I can assist you further in Question and Answer mode.


The Windows 7 / Vista System Restore feature will make sure that software installations, drivers, and other updates can be rolled back. The only price to this feature is some disk usage. And here, this caused the C drive to full. Please try disabling it by foillowing the instructions below and check if the issue persists.

Click Windows Start button, and from the Start menu, right-click on the Computer icon, and choose Properties:

Click on the System Protection link on the left-hand side:

Once you’ve done so, the steps are different depending on your OS.

Disable on Windows 7

Click the Configure button below the list of drives:

Now simply click the radio button to disable System Protection. (Note again that this is probably a bad idea).

That should be all you need to do. Then, check the C drive space.

 

 

I would suggest you do the following too, if the issue persists.

 

 

Go to the link given below, download and install Ccleaner.

http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard

Install it and run it. After launching, click Analyze and then, run cleaner. After that, click Registry from the left pane of Ccleaner. Then, Scan for issues and Fix selected issues. There is no need to backup the registry.

Please do not disable System Restore on your computer. It serves as a safety net going forward in case you need to roll back your computer. Is your D: drive a second drive or does your computer have one drive that has been partitioned (split) into two please?What Operating System is your computer using (XP; Vista; Windows 7/8)?

Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.


I see that you have been working on this problem for quite a bit of time.

I can remote in and increase the size of the C: drive by giving it some of the free space from the D: drive.

Do you still need help with this problem? If so, may I start a screen sharing session on your computer and help you resolve the problem? I will send a remote link within minutes after your response, so please keep refreshing the page. No extra charge.


Thank you.
