My laptop is running out of space so I need to transfer the games mainly from my laptop on an external hard drive.   What are the steps to achieve this?

Go to computer stores, get an external hard drive of 1 TB capacity. Ask for one that you can just simply copy and paste to transfer files.

I have a. Digital WD Elements. 1 TB vapacity. It works very well. No action of fancy, complicated to transfer, just copy and paste or drag and drop files.

I also use it to make Sysytem Image backup.

  • Windows XP - a problem to transfer big file from laptop on an external hard drive

    I have a problem to transfer large files (mail.pst - zipped file - 5Gbyte) of the laptop (Dell Latitude D630) on an external hard drive (WD 320 G - FAT 32) where each time, I got the message "there is not enough free space on the disk" although I did successfully drive clean on both sides and there is enough space on both sides (not less than 25 GB).

    Also, I did a checkdisk command and he succeeded, and I use Windows XP

    I did several tests to resolve and in the end, I found that I convert the format of external hard drive FAT 32 to NTFS, and then I could successfully transfer the file.

    I used the following commands:

    (1) command line then chkdsk to repair bad sectors

    (2) convert the command line to change the format to FAt 32 to NTFS

    Note: For Windows xp, "convert" command will not delete the files from the hard drive

  • Can I restore my laptop hard drive files that have been moved to my external hard drive (who subsequentally has stopped working)?

    I cut and pasted and then a few important files from my laptop on an external hard drive. Since the external hard drive stopped working. Is it possible to find the files that have been moved?

    Thank you!

    (More info: I tried to recover the files from external hard disk but it requires a physical recovery and would cost over $ 1000, which I did not; also unfortunately I don't think I created backup via the "backup and Restore Center" files in the control panel).

    It depends on how long you have moved the files, and how the computer has been used since.

    If you have Vista Business, Ultimate or enterprise, you can use the previous versions.

    I want my pictures to download on my iCloud but I don't want all my previous photos on my phone because there are just a lot of space and I have run out of space.

    iCloud is a synchronization service, NOT off of storage of the unit.

    You could cut the phone out of sync from your library. Just move them to your Mac and synchronize your Mac with iCloud. Now, you'll have plenty of space on your phone, but no pictures.

    From your Mac, you can then make an album with photos that you want to access from your phone. This will require ongoing work, but will keep your clear phone in most of the time.

  • How can I remove my photos from my iPhone while keeping in iCloud? because I'm running out of space on my iPhone.

    How can I remove my photos from my iPhone while keeping in iCloud? because I'm running out of space on my iPhone.

    I want to keep all my photos in iCloud. I want to remove some of them from my iPhone 4 (IOS 8) in order to free up space on my iPhone. How can I do this? Thanks for help.

    With iCloud library enabled, you cannot delete a photo on a device (or iCloud.com) without deleting each device which uses iCloud photo library (iCloud.com). In order to save space on your mobile devices (and indeed your Mac if you want to) turn on the optimization of the pictures on these devices (settings > photos & camera > optimize storage on your mobile device and Photo preferences > optimize storage on your Mac)

    Dynamic optimization, it reduces the resolution of your photos, if necessary, so that you don't notice it occurring initially. However, when necessary, it is very effective, and users have reported libraries being optimized for much less than 10% of their original size in some cases. My own library is about 9% of its original on my phone size.

  • Update to SP3 run out of space in C drive, now what?

    I have a Dell Pentium 4, which incidentally, this information is no longer present in my system since update properties to SP3, but it does not show that I am running Windows xp SP3. Because it is my understanding that XP will no longer support unless I am running SP3, I felt that I had to make room for the update. I had problems due to lack of space in my C drive, so I transferred all the files I thought I needed from my external hard drive, including Windows, programs, etc., I removed my programs Office and Word, to make room after the transfer or copying the files. Now, I have so many files in my external hard drive that I don't know if I need or not, but I can deal with it later. As I updated to SP3, my printer is more communicating with my computer, and the message is that the Windows logo testing to verify its compatibility with XP has passed. I launched the program compatibility Wizard to find out why this printer that I have had since I bought the computer was more inconsistent, but when the wizard will ask you to click on the o/s I am running, it does not show 'Windows XP' option, only 95,98, nt4 and 2000 are listed as options. I have an or so of these operating systems in an old drive is fixed, installed by my brother in law when I arrived to this computer. I needed it because I had led a company in this operating system and used the info. from time to time. I do not really use it more I can get rid of him? I could copy it to a cd for the record-keeping. I also tried to update the drivers, but it didn't work because he can't find a better solution than that what is already.
    After following all the links to the endless trails of rabbit, I tried to download "FixIt". I removed my printer, my Java and my WAA player to leave the place to install this promising program and Yes, it is installed! However, it does not complete the action when I try to run it. Now, my computer is old but has lots of features and room for improvement and growth, even if it has only 2.5 GB of RAM. I would like to know if I can solve this problem, if I remove SP1 or SP2 to get more space and I can always go to Dell and buy more Go to add. I did in the past, but I don't know if it made a difference all that I know is that he worked for a while. Also, I need to know if I need to reinstall my Windows xp, how it will affect the SP2 and SP3 updates? Help, please!

    Thanks Cameron, I did, but it still shows on Daavee response telling me to get rid of.lol

    I thought that it would automatically reflect your message. I removed it. :-)
