    Hello and Welcome nandanvr!

    I am using windows xp and debian linux.
    In windows xp I am having around 25 gb of free memory but in linux if i copy anything it says enough space memory to copy.
    Can you please post the output of

    $ sudo fdisk -l (l is a small L)

    It will show the total size of your HD and your partitions, among others.

    Post the output of df -h command too.
    Code:
    su -
    fdisk -l
    df -h
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
