    Hi, and welcome to TSG.

    What is currently stored on Disk E? Is it a separate hard drive or a partition of the same physical hard drive that also holds the main C partiton?

    Do the following in your Dell computer so we have a better picture of its hard drive(s).

    Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) file.
    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.
    Information about your computer will appear.
    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE text here.

    Note: Make sure to disconnect any external USB hard drives or USB thumb drives from your computer BEFORE you do the above.

    When I right click on Local disk E and check properties, there are nothing stored.
    But I only have 37 MB free out of 449 MB.

    I believe that is separate from C drive.

    Thank you for your kind reply and answer.

    You make it difficult or impossible to help you if you don't provide the information that we request.

    Looks like above result shows that I have 0 GB for Disk E.
    It probably shows 0, because mine is only 0.5 GB (500 MB).
    I actually have 37 MB free out of 449 MB

    Thank you.

    You appear to have a Dell Inspiron 20 3048 all-in-one desktop.
    Is that correct?

    According to its marketing specifications, it comes with a SATA3 hard drive and a SATA2 disc drive.
    It appears to come with a Western Digital or Seagate 500 GB(465 GB) hard drive, but I can't confirm that at this time.

    What's the exact 7-character "service tag" number on your Dell?

    According to that service tag number, you have THIS Dell Inspiron 20 3048 all-in-one desktop.

    According to its original components section, it came with a Seagate 500 GB SATA3 hard drive - which has an actual capacity of 465 GB.

    According to your TSGSIU log, its primary C: drive has a capacity of 455 GB and has 375 GB of free space, so it's a long way from running out of disk space.

    The other 10 GB that's not accounted for it probably where the factory restore/system recovery files are located.
