Re: Yoga 13 - patch that gives 100gb of free space

2012-12-05, 11:22 AM

RE Lenovo offerred the patch that gives you at least 100gb of free space. I also ordered and installed an additional 128gb SSD and 8gb RAM.---

 

Where can I find this patch?

I'm having a problem with the hotfix  download. After I download it, I go through the hotfix installation wizard and it gives me an error message. Unable to execute file.Shellexecuteex failed, code 2. The system cannot find the file? Any ideas?

You have to go to the c:\drivers\hotfix folder, right-click on executable you'll find there, and choose Run as Administrator. The installer doesn't actually successfully run the hotfix itself.

It wasn't a stupid question, since instructions on the Lenovo page are wrong, and the initial installer also fails!

What's the total size of your C: drive? I have 72GB free, but it shows a total size of 100GB, which is correct.

My C Drive now show 65gb free of 100gb. But I recall that was what it was before the hotfix. As I said, D drive is not there anymore. So did I gain any free space with this? My machine really has nothing else loaded on it, other than a few aps??

Thanks to Dennya for  "Run as Administrator" tip.  It allowed me to avoid the same error that Snsn was having.

 

After running the hotifix, going to my computer shows only the C: partition now, with 100GB total.  The drive itself is supposed to have 128GB.  Where are the other 28GB?

snsn,

 

Either you're remembering wrong, or your Yoga came with new partitioning from what most of us have seen. (Which I'd be surprised by, since I just got a factory-new Yoga yesterday that appears to have had its drive image created on 11/26/12.)

 

As it ships, with the C and D drive and 7 disk partitions, the Yoga only had a 63GB C drive with 42GB free, plus there was a D partition that had driver backups on it.

 

Now you have a 100GB C drive with 65GB free (and the stuff that had been on the D drive copied to it).

 

Telos,

 

Well, first, like all drives, a "128GB" drive only really stores just under 120GB, due to file system overhead. (Same reason you buy a new 2 terabyte hard drive only to discover that it only has 1.8TB of actual storage.)

 

Even after the hotfix, there are still six partitions. Two of these could be eliminated, but I wouldn't suggest it.

 

1- 1GB: Recovery Partition (Lenovo system stuff?)

2 - 260MB: EFI System Partition (created by Windows 8)

3 - 1GB: OEM Partition (More Lenovo system stuff)

4 - 100.41GB: Windows 8 C Partition

5 or 6 - 8GB: Intel Fast Startup

5 or 6 - 8GB: Onekey backup recovery image of the original Windows 8 install

 

You could eliminate the Intel fast startup partition without breaking anything; it would just make your PC take slightly longer to boot. And you could lose the Onekey backup partition if you made a backup of your OS on an external drive. However, (1) I'm not sure which of the two 8GB partitions is which; I can't tell from Disk Management, and (2) rather than hobble functionality and safely, why not add an SD card in the external memory card slot, if you need new storage and don't want to open the PC to add a second SSD? You can get a fast 64GB card just for just $55 at Amazon, or 16GB for just $12.
