System update with low capacity on drive C:

Hey,

 

I have a Lenovo T410i running XP. The computer is standard setup, and i now wanted to do some updates using the Lenovo System update software.

My problem is that the computer is setup with a C drive capacity on 1.2 gb, while the D drive is 220 gb, so when i try to run the updater, it says that there is not enough space.

 

Is there a way to work around this? Maybe some way changing from C drive to the D drive?

 

Would be nice if someone had a solution for this problem!

That's most definitely not a standard setup.  I'm actually surprised that you don't have more problems than just System Update.  I would recommend using some partition editing software to fix that.  Sorry I don't have any other advice for you.

Re: System update with low capacity on drive C:

Well i'm pretty sure it's a standard setup, since we have a lot of Lenovo laptops with that kind of setup.

 

What kind of software can do that? I thought that i had to format in order to change the size of the partitions?

Partition Magic, for one. I am not sure if it still can be found.

Hey guys,

 

I started this thread earlier:

 

Now i've fixed the problem with small partitions, and they now all with at least 60gb free space. But i still get the error that there is not enough free space to update.

 

I have tried uninstalling, redownloaded and reinstalled the program, but this doesn't work either. Any ideas? Smiley Sad
