(Solved) - Why is my memory so full?(14 posts)
- Remove Solved Status
To reiterate the above, memory is RAM, you have 4gb, so you will see around 3 to 3.5 active. That is the constraint in 32 bit.
Space, the final fontier.
This is the physical 'space' left on your hard drive after the OS, then programs, THEN data.
You have, what appears to be 70gbs on your C drive/partition?
Do you have a D (data) partition?
Where are you storing your data? If on C specifically, then it will fill pretty quick.
You need to look at the size of your data storage ( music, pics etc ), get them off to another drive as backup.
Look at unneeded / unwanted programs, the ones you don't need, uninstall them. Get rid of things like iTunes etc.
As above, run Ccleaner after the event, reboot.
You should post an image of your 'computer' to see if you have another partition. (data)
Start a new one please.
Memory to most people is *RAM*, the physical h/w installed in the computer. Usually in GB's in most new computers, less in older ones.
Disk Space is composed of used, reserved, and free space, also in GB's, but NOT the same as memory.
Don't use the terms interchangeably and call both memory, it will confuse people.
Post h/w spec's with your problem description please.
