I am totally confused.
You started this thread on 11 July.
You, rshaffer61 and myself have spent time, IN THE LAST TWO days or so, explaining WHICH hard disk drive diagnostic tool you need.
HOWEVER I now realise that on another site on 17 July the suggestion to run the hard disk drive analysis was already made and the correct tool identified to you.
Go to the WD Caviar Blue EIDE (PATA) Downloads page and download Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for DOS (CD)
As that is a quote from the other site dated 17 July
It was also pointed out to you, exactly what I have said regarding E drive and that was ALSO on 17 July
Used Space: 225GB (97%)
Free Space: 7.67GB (3%)
Your second HDD is way tooooo ... full also. You should remove some stuff from this drive.
FULL = 15% free space.
(Time to start storing stuff elsewhere @ 25% free space)
You responded to the above on the other site
thanks man. i'll get on this shortly.
my E drive is full but is that a problem? its just storage, not regular functional. windows is run of my C (or at least i think so)
i will do the manufacturer diagnostic. may i ask what's the goal here?
Additionally to all of this you had also been advised to run many of the programs and utilities suggested here.
AND on 11 July, the date you started the thread on GeekstoGo you were advised on the other site
If your hard drive is 8% free, you should consider getting a larger hard drive or cleaning it up by deleting unnecessary files; uninstalling programs; and moving document, picture, movie, and music files to an external drive. The fuller the hard drive is, Windows will begin to slow down more and more.
FINALLY you have posted this matter on at least four sites and on ONE of these which I also work on your received help and advice from two of the sites more experienced members and have not responded on that site since the 12 July.I have decided to leave the matter with you, as I feel, to be perfectly honest with you that I am to some extent wasting my time.
It may have been more helpful if when matters suggested HERE on GeekstoGo, had already been mentioned on the other site, that this was pointed out to us.
You were asked on the site to run TFC Cleaner. That had already been suggested to you on the other site.The reason I am leaving the thread is NOT that you have asked for help on other sites, but that you were already aware of many of the issues on which you have raised queries on this site.
