2018 with a 250 G hardrive?


David & his pack of dogs
 

I was given a HP lap top by a charitable group sponsored by the government. It has 6 Gigs of ram and a 250 G hard drive.  Is that enough to run JAWS 2018 as well as other related products?  The agent knew I was blind.  Perhaps the agent being sighted was not aware of the size of hard drive needed.  After all, he didn’t know Window Eyes had been discontinued. I don’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth however, fear the hard drive is not big enough to handle accessibility products.  It was suggested I just send the lap top back.

Makes no difference for Jaws, if it has 6 Gb of RAM this is probably a computer that is less than 5 years old and I have a PC at work with an Intel E7400 CPU which will be 10 years old next February, it has 2 GB of RAM and probably also a 250 Gb or 500 Gb hard drive and Jaws runs fine on it. Obviously at 10 years old it's not the fastest horse on the track, but it still does what it is supposed to do, it has Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit installed on it and we use it at my store upstairs primarily to look up items in our POS system or go online for looking up something here and there.
This by the way was about $500 at the time with a $89 motherboard and all in all just a super-simple workstation.

I suppose a great deal depends on what you need/want to do with a
computer. For basic browsing and email the described system is likely
enough (although even for browsing that will be very slow if you hit
the wrong site).

Hi:

 

I have a machined with 6GB on it and JAWS runs fine.

 

With 4gb, you start to see a lot of swapping going on, but, with 6 or 8 and above, you get better performance.

 

Cheers.

That is fine unless you have a lot of music or videos. My main OS drive is a 100GB partition that has all my software. all my media goes on a seperate 256GB SSD.
6GB of RAM is fine also. 8 is the best price/performance balance but 6 is fine. Actually anything over 8 is a waste of money unless you do serious CAD or editing of some kind.

Not sure, best buy said it had a 5.1 or slightly higher processor. I am sure
it is fast, just not sure it is big enough. I got it back from Best buy
Sunday Nov. 5 and already it says I just have about 39 Gs left of storage
space. .

The hard drive is beyond big enough. The accessibility software doesn't take that much space.
The Windows operating system takes significantly more space than Jaws.
And 6 GB of RAM should be enough with a fast processor.
If you only have 39 GB of hard drive space, that is the files you are storing, not Jaws.

To test this, launch Windows explorer and navigate to your c drive.
Open the Program Files folder and put the focus on the Freedom scientific folder, but do not open it.
then hit the context menu key or shift-f10 select properties.
If you read the dialog, toward the end you should hear how many bytes are in the folder.

On my system, I have both Jaws 18 and 2018 and the Freedom Scientific bolder is only 348 Megabytes.
I also have Openbook on my system and it takes over 1 Gigabyte.
That is a minimal amount of space given the overall size of the drive.
Richard

Hi!

I have only 32 gig of space on a small HP laptop, an SSD drive.

I have Windows 10 Fall Creators, JAWS, NVDA, Google Chrome browser, and many more programs, and all of that only takes up 16 gigs. So, if you do not put a lot of your own files on it, 250 gigs is way more than enough. If you need more room, you can buy an exterrnal storage drive with a terabyte for $70.00.

You have a great set up there.

I am so happy for you!

There is definitely something wrong, you can install Windowsssss and Office on a system wwwwith a 60 Gb SSD and still have probably 40 Gb or more free space. If you have a 250 Gb hard drive and there is nothing much other than Windows and maybe Office there you should have at least 200 Gb or more free space.
You said the computer was given to you, maybe it has an old Windows installation on it although they only take maybe 3 or 4 Gb, I'd do a disk cleanup and see what shows up and also make sure you check how much is in the recycle bin.
Lastly, make sure the drive is not partitioned, maybe the C drive with the Windows installation is just a 60 or 80 Gb partition and you have another partition with the majority of the drive space in it.

Subject: 2018 with a 250 G hardrive?

I was given a HP lap top by a charitable group sponsored by the government.
It has 6 Gigs of ram and a 250 G hard drive. Is that enough to run JAWS
2018 as well as other related products? The agent knew I was blind.
Perhaps the agent being sighted was not aware of the size of hard drive
needed. After all, he didn't know Window Eyes had been discontinued. I
don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth however, fear the hard drive is
not big enough to handle accessibility products. It was suggested I just
send the lap top back.

Is there anything on it? If not you can delete it and extend the primary partition to include it.

There is definitely something wrong, you can install Windowsssss and Office
on a system wwwwith a 60 Gb SSD and still have probably 40 Gb or more free
space. If you have a 250 Gb hard drive and there is nothing much other than
Windows and maybe Office there you should have at least 200 Gb or more free
space.
You said the computer was given to you, maybe it has an old Windows
installation on it although they only take maybe 3 or 4 Gb, I'd do a disk
cleanup and see what shows up and also make sure you check how much is in
the recycle bin.
Lastly, make sure the drive is not partitioned, maybe the C drive with the
Windows installation is just a 60 or 80 Gb partition and you have another
partition with the majority of the drive space in it.

Not sure, best buy said it had a 5.1 or slightly higher processor. I am sure
it is fast, just not sure it is big enough. I got it back from Best buy
Sunday Nov. 5 and already it says I just have about 39 Gs left of storage
space. .

the size of a drive or ssd is not the real available free space.
that 60 gb ssd only has about48gb free for your use because it uses about 12gb of space for its own use and is not available to you.

Yes, but a Windows and Office installation takes no more than 6 or 8 Gb so even if you start out with 48 Gb you still have 40 Gb left. Anyhow, it comes down to unimportant details, the point I wanted to make is that 250 Gb is a multiple of what you need to run Windows and Office and some other applications, as somebody else pointed out, they are running Windows 10 on a system with a 32 Gb SSD and below are the hardware requirements according to Microsoft, essentially Windows 10 should be able to run on just about any system that can run Windows 7 and in some cases I would say Windows 10 runs better:

Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
Free hard disk space: 16 GB
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver
A Microsoft account and Internet access
