This might seem like a dumb question but I'm still learning about hard drive space, and how much it can safely hold, my friend emailed me a bunch of head shot picture files and songs she recorded shes a singer, but its (4056KB) all together. she wants me to upload the files to my blog but I'm worried that if I download all those files my system will crash! what can I do? and will my system crash if I download all of that? I use windows XP I dont have an external hard-drive yet, I have around 896MB of RAM, and right now I have 117 GB of free space, and 2.56 GB D drive space left. Tell me if 4056KB of files will crash it or not and what other options do I have to help my friend by the way her computer is not working I guess that should tell me somthing, but is there another way of doing this without crashing my computer? Thanks.

Of course your computer will crash if it will reach to its full potential. It will crash if it exceeds to what it supposed to be download and stored in your computer.Too much is not good.

Lol well I said I'm still learning about this stuff so if this question seems dumb sorry haha I usually try to keep my computer as free as I can because I do know that they run faster with less junk on it.

Nope! you can down load it, there is only approx 3.96 GB data you want to download from web, and you have much enough space on your hard disk, you have 117 GB space on C drive and 2.56 = 119.56 G.B = 122429 KB space available............ download it all and enjoy............by the way whose stupid IT person made partition of your computer.

You should be fine. kb is muuuuch smaller than mb. You have plenty of space. Gigabytes are the largest size when talking computers, and if you have 117 GB you have a LOT of space.

Its still a lot though and I want to keep as much space free as I can because my computer has space but I already have stuff stored on, and its almost 4 years old and sometimes it runs slow and adding the extra files might make it run slower.

4,056KB is extremely little compared to 117GB. You do not have to worry about your harddrive getting full or that your computer will crash. It is completly safe to download the files from your friend if it is home-made files. If your computer is slow and have 117GB left it is a sign that if you use up 4MB more it is NOT going to be slower. The problem with the slowness is that you have had it for 4 years,NOT lack of harddrive space.

no, it will not crash. If you have 117 free space, it will be safe to download. If you download over 117 it will but 4256kb is fine.

But my computer is nearly 4 years old and its running a bit slow, and I already have a lot of my own stuff stored on it, you dont think its risky downloading more stuff the pics my friend sent are big and there's 16 songs plus additional pics are you sure downloading all that stuff wont damage desktops system.

lol..4056KB is equivalent to approx 4MB. Just mere 4MB, nothing more than that..so dont worry.. First of all you need to see this conversion chart to get things easy. 8 bit=1 byte 1024 byte=1 KB (KiloByte) 1024 KB=1 MB (MegaByte) 1024 MB=1GB (GigaByte) and so on...with TB(TeraByte),PB(PetaByte)..etc.. and you said that you have around 117GB of free space left. So 4056KB is not a big thing. One more thing to add, even if you download 4056 MB or even 4056 GB, then even your computer will not crash.But while downloading 4056GB, it will give a low disk space error.

Oh love this info chart now I have a better understanding of how much space I can safely use. Though I must say I dont know if I want to use the extra hard drive space on an already slow 4 year old computer, but the information.

just by the size no, but for viruses and such maybe, best to scan it first.

You do not have to scan for viruses if your friend have taken pictures and recording songs and then sending them to you.

You mentioned you got 117GB of free space which is equivalent to 981,467,136 kb which is far out from the file you want to download which is only 4,056KB. Your system will also warn you if you already have a very low disk space. Which means that you have to burn your files to dvds or cds to free up space in your hard disk or buy additional external or internal hard disk.

Would you recommend downloading all these sort of files on 4 year old slow running computer? and if I download all that will I still have enough room for other things?
