Windows 7: disk full???

05 Nov 2017   #21

Windows 7
 
 

What I want to do at the end of the day is simply have a machine with a disk that is not on the edge of usability. I wanted to clone the system before I realized that the system is somehow corrupt. Exactly right that I need to fix that first, before I do that clone!

System is HP Pavillion a4327.

Windows update is certainly enabled. I have no problem killing that off, but at some point I would like to enable updates, and I have to clean off the disk anyway.

As I said, I inherited this machine from someone who was a novice, but didn't hesitate to try things. So I inherited all the problems along with it.

COOL

please run the tool i asked.
from that i will be able to provide a genuine W7 SP1 link and the correct version, home/pro/etc.
you can either burn it to a disc or transfer it to a USB, min 4gb

Transfer any private data to an external device and reinstall after your new system is set-up
once i have the info i will get you links to show you how to clean install
IMPORTANT can you read the key on the COA sticker

PLEASE NOTE
NO EXTERNAL DEVICES ARE TO BE CONNECTED while installing

I have run the MGADiag tool. It provides a lot of diagnostics. Which are you interested in? See below for the Win page. [DELETED]

I have already moved all user data to the backup drive.

There is Windows Home Premium sticker on side of the the chassis. It gives Product Key: [DELETED]. THat's somewhat different than what is on the MDADiag tool

Now, I only have 2.6GB available on my hard disk. Am I going to be able to download that 3.1GB install media? Help!

Hi Dramx,

OK
you can download the Iso link to another drive with space on it, backup G has plenty of room according to your disc managemnt screenshot
not sure which browser your using but with firefox you can send it where ever you want
then pull it into the usb from there or burn it to create a disc

or
remove programs and run the MS disk cleanup tool

Oh, excellent point about saving it to my backup disk. That's easy. From there, I'll burn it to a DVD, and then boot from that DVD.
