Re: "low disk space hp_tools (E:)"

To add to the above – you can always create your own set of recovery disk and free up the HDD of the E: drive to use it as you like it. Here is an HP document that will help you do this - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00810298&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_R1002_US...

Re: "low disk space hp_tools (E:)"

From the screenshot it looks like Hewlett- Packard folder is consuming space on hard drive.

 

If you expand Hewlett- Packard folder, whats taking more space? Have you stored any of your personal files/folders (documents, pictures, music  etc) in folder/drive?
