If so - that means your computer doesn't have enough space to store the whole download.

Try freeding up some space on your computer - uninstall programs you don't need, go through Program Files to see whether there's any folder with files in it from an uninstalled program and delete it, etc. Empty your Recycle Bin, do a Disk Cleanup... there are lots of ways to free space.

You could always add a hard drive and then mount it as a continuation to the c drive. This would effectively add a hard drive but you would not have to deal with remember what is on which drive as everything would be listed on the c drive


Thanks

1. Click Start, click Run, and then type compmgmt.msc in the Open box.
2. In the left pane, click Disk Management.
3. Right-click the partition or volume that you want to mount, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
4. Click Add.
5. Click Mount in the following empty NTFS folder (if it is not already selected), and then use one of the following steps:
Type the path to an empty folder on an NTFS volume, and then click OK.
Click Browse, locate the empty NTFS folder, click OK, and then click OK.
If you have not yet created an empty folder, click Browse, click New Folder to create an empty folder on an NTFS volume, type a name for the new folder, click OK, and then click OK.
Quit the Disk Management snap-in.

Interesting concept. No trying to remember which HD data is stored on. This could come in handy for a couple of friends I know.

Yeah it is great for the not so savy friends around us *cough parents cough*. It is not limited to drives either you can even mount a seperate partition as a folder if you wanted too. The only catch is you must use NTFS which everyone with xp or higher should be using anyway.

I did the mounting of the new drive. The new folder on the new drive F has the C drive files but still de C drive does not show more room for Windows 7 to install. Do I erase files on C drive? What should I do?

Thanks

Direct to: Lico Solo

Please start your own topic as this topic is 2 months old now.
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Thank you for your cooperation.
