I have a HPE 360uk PC with Win 7 Pro 64 & 8GB RAM.
There was, from new, an HP recovery partition (D) & this has become red in explorer & I am getting warnings that it is low on disk space. This happened last week, but then the space increased (I don't know why) & all was OK, but I am getting the warning again now. (69.2MB free of 11.8GB)
I have not set up Windows backup as I use Backup Direct. I have made recovery disks.
What should I do? Is it safe to ignore this?
I have turned on view hidden files & folders, but can still see nothing of what is on that drive partition.
I am wondering if System Restore is saving to that partition, & if so, what can I do to stop it?

I have just (through Backup Direct) been able to look at the files on this partition
Under Preload there are a 99 files with consecutive nos all called 10WESUMW611?? all created on 22/7/10 at 07.51 hours
& ranging in size from 14 to 293.3MB. I'm guessing this is why this partition has filled up.

Look under System Protection and see if any partition besides C is checked. The C partition should be be the only partition that is check marked. If the Recovery Partition is checked then uncheck it and reboot.
