I need to free up some space in my recovery drive (D: ). Every time I run a scan it fails because I don't have near the space needed on this drive. The drive capacity is about 9 MB, and I only have 8% of that free. The scans keep telling me to free up some space.
Is this D: drive slowing down my computer?
When I click on the icons in the D: drive that have the most space (4GB, 2GB), I get a message saying:
This area of your hard drive (or partition) contains files used for your PC Recovery.
Do not delete or alter these files.
Any change to this partition could prevent any recovery later.
*Does this mean that I won't be able to restore my computer to factory settings, even with my recovery DVDs? Or does it just mean that I won't be able to perform a backup the next time I want to?
If I can't delete any files off my D: drive, how can I free up space on that drive?
I'm tempted just to delete the files...but am unsure, and I thought I would post a message about it first.
