Those darn toshiba drives, they cause alot of problems in just a few years of use. Best to save up a little and get a new HD, either Maxtor or Western Digital.

 

Good luck. :beer:

It might depend on what you are deleting from your drive. Check out the history on both...the used space changes. The size isn't making a difference but it could be some program that you are deleting or installing. Maybe you can see what is eating up resources in Task Manager.

 

You don't have alot of free space which is going to effect things. If you think it is dieing you should look for a toshiba utility that will re certify the drive to factory specs (you will lose all data so backup first)

lol. couple virus' huh. well.. might wanna think about backing up all your data and then reformatting and reinstalling windows. you have any clue how long those virus' have been there and how much damage they can do or "did" do?

yup. several different ways. a home network is one way. also.. shutting down both pc's and putting your hard drive in the other computer as a slave drive. then just transfer files over.

 

after that... put your hard drive back in. set it to master. and format and reinstall windows.

you mean FAT32 :rolleyes:

 

There can be major problems going from NTFS to FAT32 but not the other way around...even with Partition Magic 8 (it talks about it in the HELP files). If you find your system isn't any faster you need to reformat using FAT32.

 

Partition format FAT32

Cluster size 1 KB

 

the Cluster size is way too low...should be 16kb.
