not enough disk space to burn dvd


T

Tawny

I loaded up my 60GB hard drive with pictures, video etc.
throwing caution to the wind. Now I want to unload some
of it with my DVD writer, but it appears that I do not
have enough room to make room. I try to place the
folders that I want to write in the virtual F: drive
before actually burning, but as it copies the files, I
get a "Low disk space" warning and it stops copying.
Isn't there a way to just burn the DVD from the source,
without having to do the intermediary virtual copy?

If your hard drive is in fact really low on space: Have you tried emptying
your Temporary Internet Files, doing a disk clean up for System Restore
which deletes all Restore Points except the last, getting rid of email that
has large attachments, and then compacting your email folders, uninstalling
programs you don't use, then defragmenting your hard drive? That should
give you some space. Then try copying a small number files to your DVD. If
successful, delete the originals from your hard drive, which will give you
more space. With hard drives as inexpensive as they are (less than $99 for
40GB) why not buy and slave a new hard drive to your old one, and move half
(or more) of the image/video files there?

By default system restore claims 10% of your hard drive
shut it off,this will free up 10% burn your pix and the
turn system restore back on and create a new checkpoint?
I've never done this but its worth a shot.

No. It's 12%.

Bad advice. Restore is a very valuable feature. You don't have to
use all 12%. Lower the percentage, but don't turn it off.
