Hi,

it's almost a long time that i see "LOW DISK SPACE ON G:/ ... " ERROR which my windows located at and i ignore it , i also canceled Disk-Clean-Up all the time ,

i uninstalled some programs but after 2,3 Days, i again saw this ERROR and some time my Disk space reduced to even less than 100MB after some hours of working with the computer , when Free Disk space was too Low, windows prevented me to download anything because of Low disk space ...

one time, when i was online and surfing the web, suddenly windows started to saving ... then restarted without any extra ERROR
can this occurred because of Lack of this Space on Windows Partition ? or a Virus ?

Regards

Go to Start then to Run

On right side you will see you hard drive.
Now I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply. Do the following to take a screenshot while the above is open and showing on your desktop.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop

Hi and thank you for your Help,

i have uninstalled some Heavy programs on my computer and when i checked it's now around 2Gigs Free,

i just wondered that can "LOW DISK SPACE" Error and ignoring them continuously and even avoiding it to clean-up Partition cause to sudden Reboot or Crash ?
if so , i should reinstall windows in a bigger partition to prevent any future damage or sudden reboot ...

fine is a relative term...if you're going to do well in GU you may want to do some research on how computers work

Geeks27 the reason for the requested information is I need to know what the total amount of space your HD has and what 2 gigs is in percentage wise the free space available on your drive.
Less then 10% free space on a HD can result in the MBR being corrupted and thus cause the errors you are receiving.
A corrupted hd can also cause this error.
Can you please reply with the requested information and we can proceed?
