Disk space problem – software error or hardware error

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -


There has been a recent problem with my disk space. My pc got lots of space on it but it shows red and lots of space full in each drive in the my computer menu. I do not get it. I think know whether it is a virus or it has something to do with the hard disk. Kindly someone help me since there are many valuable files stored in my disk and I will be in serious trouble if some of them get damaged.

Both Virus and Hard Disk may be responsible for the issue. Your Hard Disk may be affected by Virus. To solve this problem you are suggested to use an update version of Antivirus you’re your computer. But it is up to your satisfaction about the performance of the Antivirus. Another reason is Hard Disk problem. You can fix file system errors and for recovering of bad sectors of your Hard Disk through the Properties of your respective Hard Drive. When you have completed the above mentioned steps, restart your computer. Disk defragmenter is very helpful in this regard. You can also scan the required disk for smooth functioning of your Hard Disk.  

 I hope you understand it.

If you think your computer is infected with a virus, try scanning your machine. Download Sophos Virus Removal Tool and install it. Once installed, start Sophos then wait until the virus signature database gets updated. When updating is complete, click to start scanning your computer. Sophos scans everything on the system including external drives connected via USB port.

Scanning may take some time to finish depending on the amount of data and the size of the drive or drives. When a virus is found at the end of the scan, remove it then repeat the scan over and over until Sophos no longer detects a virus. See if this works.

On the other hand, if you want to remove clutter from your hard drive, download the free version of CCleaner and install it. Once installed, start CCleaner and clean your system.
