My C drive memory is completly full after about 3 days.. pls help

Hi there,

I installed utorrent a few days ago and started downloading movies etc... however my C drive is now totally full. I am using vista so perhaps this may be a factor? I have searched for answers and have come accross suggestions relating to memory leak??

So i uninstalled my firewall - this was the suggestion from the help option on utorrent. Firstly Im not 100% if I have even done this correctly. I uninstalled my entire McAfee security centre, and tried to uninstall the windows firewall but I dont think i managed it.

My PC is now very slow in general and i cant download anything..

Any guidance would be great!

Thanks,

Cormac

Hi Jewelisheaven..thanks for your comments..

Its not the diskspace but my entire hardrive that is full. My hardrive is telling me that it has 1GB left out of 69GB - and it was about 5GB full a few days ago. My PC is only a few months old....

utorrent is telling me i dont have sufficient memory for any more downloads..

Apologies if my explanantion is p*nts

Yes, diskspace = harddrive. You've been downloading to your C drive, and now it is full, it is out of diskspace. This is not a µTorrent problem, you're just trying to download more than what you have room for on your drive. If you have a second drive or partition with free space, download new torrents to this other place, or use jewelisheaven's suggestion to move your current downloads to the other partition/drive.

Even unfinished downloads often have to allocate the entire space for their completed length...at least if they're over 50% downloaded...due to their non-sequential download nature.

So lots of unfinished downloads may be filling up your drive.

Have you run a disk checker program on the supposedly full drive to see if it can recover some free space?

Have you emptied your c:\windows\temp folder in a while?

Or has Disk Cleanup been run lately?
