Go into your notebook's Control panel settings and select System protection.  Change drive E setting from on to off. Also be sure that you never save anything to the E drive.

my version of Windows 7 doesn't have protection settings for drive e. The protection settings are for C and D only.

I followed the directions:  Control panel to systems and ended up on the same screen as shown above but my drive E is not listed, only C and D but my problem is with "E".

yes i figured it out! after about an hour of looking... your computer has been automatically backing itself up every month, just go in and delete a few back ups!! Go computer, hp tools drive E, and click on the name of your computer in their, then click manage space used by this backup, and click view back ups and delete the ones you dont want!!! by the way they are dated thankfully. but its that simple, hope this helped.

Re: low disk space mesage HP tools drive E?

I am having the same problem. After going to the properties on every file in my HP_TOOLS, I found that the rootfs file I have is taking up close to 2.19 GB...

Are there ANY solutions to this problem out there?
