Question:

“Low disk space” or “page-file” or “Virtual Memory" errors/warnings after performing a OS Restore or backup on oscilloscopes running Win7?

Answer:

If, after performing an OS restore or creating a backup image, the oscillscope reports “low disk space”, “page-file”, “Virtual Memory" errors/warnings, TekScope not starting up, or experiencing odd Windows behavior, try the following proceedure to recover any unallocated hard drive space. 

  1. On the desktop, right click on the "Computer" icon
  2. Select “Manage”
  3. Click on “Disk Management”
  4. In the lower part of the window where you can see (C:) Healthy (Boot, Page File, etc.), you may also see a large unallocated partition next to  it.
  5. If you see an unallocated partition, right click in the C:\ partition and select “Extend Volume” to recover the unallocated partition to the C:/ drive
  6. Follow the Wizard prompts by clicking on "next" through prompts
  7. Click "Finish" to complete the process

Note: if you cannot get the C partition to "Extend" check to make sure that the C:\ is selected.
