When you try to create the simple volume, I get "There is not enough available space on the disks to complete this operation." Even when there is obviously a lot of space.

I just installed Windows 7 Professional in the last hour and was not able to create this partition during the installation.  Now that I'm in disk management.  It's showing I 73,24 GB of free space.  What I'm trying to do in the end, is to combine this with a partition already created.  One thing I find strange is anytime I go into "new simple volume" it tells me that the maximum space in MB is 74997 when the free space on the graph shows me only 73,24 GB.  I tried to create the size of the volume to 73000 MB and have also tried 10000MB and get to every time the same mistake!  "There is not enough available space on the disks to complete this operation."  What can I do to fix this?

Your best bet is a third party partition manager.

With the tools of Windows 7, you can only shrink and extend partitions, apart from the creation and deletion of them.

Disk manufacturers quote their sizes of disc in decimal format. Windows Go are 2 ^ 10 or 1024 decimal MB. Then 74997/1024 is 73,24 GB.

    Hello fighclubber25,

    a. don't you make changes to the computer before having this problem?

    I suggest that you try the methods below to resolve this issue.

    Method 1:

    My research, I find that there are several problems with the Antivirus software when trying to install the drivers for the Western Digital hard drive. I suggest that you disable the antivirus software temporarily and verify if you are able to install the drivers. Also, make sure you download the correct version of the drivers.

    Note: Make sure that you enable the antivirus software after the test. You can check the link for more information below:


    Method 2:

    Connect the drive to another computer and check if you are able to load the drivers. Just to make sure that the hard drive is not defective.

  • When you try to create the new thread in a discussion forum, the browser closes and I'm back in the office.

    I tried to create a new thread in a Discussion forum.  Closing the browser window and I was back on the desktop.  I did a system restore, which not only does not solve the problem, but deleted my internet security software.  Has worked with people of tendency to reinstall the software, but I get a message tht says: «Unable to extract the installer...» ».  I have a class of the internet this week and I need this computer.  Can someone please?

    You can undo the last restoration of the system using: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/76256-system-restore-undo.html.  This may fix your problem with security software that has uninstalled when you did the system restore (using a date that probably existed before the installation of trend).  I don't know if it works now that you have done other things to try to reinstate the program, but it's worth a try.  I sincerely doubt that this process could help with the problem of browser (and there not so undo it reverses your efforts).

    You use Internet Explorer?  If so, please repost your question in Forum Internet Explorer: http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/InternetExplorer/threads where the IE specialists will be more than happy to help you with your problem.

    Only trend can help you with installation problems you encounter through their program.  Perhaps it didn't uninstall completely during the restoration of the system.  Check if the trend has a removal tool and use it to uninstall the program, then try to re - install again.  If this does not work, you will need to work with their technical support to solve the problem.

    I hope this helps.

  • Script to create virtual machines fails when you try to add the disk to the cluster data store


    Attached is the script that I used to create virtual machines and it works very well when virtual machines are created to warehouses of unique data, but do not have clustered data warehouses. I think that the reason is that it creates the virtual machine through the esx host (who does not know the cluter) and not via vCenter (who knows about it). Unfortunately I do not know how to fix.

    Thank you

  • When you try to create a system image, receive the error code 0 x 81000019

    Get the error code when you try to create a system image on a 900 + GB hard drive with 900 GB of free space. Keeps telling me that there is not enough space to create the image of the shadow. I'm trying the disk image has only 40 GB of data. What is going on? Using Windows 7 64 bit Pro.

    Many hours of searching the Web for answers about a year ago, said that relatively few people have this problem and proposed solutions in the forums have been complex, machine dependent and seem to fail for most of the people who have tried a fix...

    So when I gave up and called Microsoft... they told me to take my problem to anyone assembled my computer...

    The man who built my machine told me not to worry, simply store all my files on the cloud, as he does...

    So now I store my important stuff on a spare drive, we have installed in the box, go to live with the inability to make appropriate backups and restore points...

    All my old computers is standard backups without any hassle... Just this new machine with Win7.

    (The only "new" thing was a disc SSD C... can't believe it would make one difference either, other than speed... and many people use them in 2011...)

  • Version of Photoshop elements Windows 14 - error when you try to create a Photomerge Panorama "documents must be registered before they can be merged. I tried a few of the fixes mentioned in these forums such as Edit-> Preferences-> general-> res

    We know the fix for the bug "documents must be registered before they can be merged" when you try to create a Photomerge Panorama in PSE 14?

    I think I have found workarounds to the question "documents must be registered before they can be merged" (no thank you lack of Adobe customer support):

    Solution #1

    My workflow template is to take pictures with my SLR and save on the memory in the form of RAW files, download the images on my PC, then open the RAW files in Adobe Camera Raw and then save the images to jpeg using PSE. I wasn't able to create Photomerge Panorama with jpeg images I've saved, but I was able to create Photomerge Panorama with the images I have saved IF I save as TIFF 8-bit files in EPS. A condition for this workaround was that I had to save the pictures at their original resolution and not at a reduced resolution.

    Solution #2

    If I have a right-click on an image and selected open with 14 and observed PES Editor (RGB/8) * to the right of the file changes its name, which means PSE think he has not saved to the file. The solution is to go to file-> Save-> Save (replace existing file-Yes)-> OK. You can then use this file and others you perform the same steps to create a Photomerge Panorama.

    Solution #3

    The way to save JPEG files in PSE is to go to file-> save for Web-> Save-> Save. The workaround is to select the file-> save for the Web and then check the box include the color profile , then click on save and then save again. Then I'm able to merge JPEG files using Photomerge Panorama and I don't get the error message "Documents must be registered before they can be merged". I looked back 11 of PSE that is still on my PC and found that the Embed checkbox color profile did NOT have to be checked to get Photomerge to work for jpeg files. So it appears with PSE 14 Adobe changed the Photomerge Panorama script to require the image file the color profile embedded in the image. If the color profile is not embedded, PSE think the image file has unsaved changes. BTW, this bug, or "feature" has not changed with PSE 14.1.
