I'm afraid I don't have an answer for you.
Are you getting that disk full error shown in the link?
Because if you're not, it is normal to see that the recovery partition is almost full.
If you haven't saved any files on it, then you're fine.

I'm hoping you are on Windows 7... If so then right click 'My Computer' and select 'Properties' under the 'System Protection' tab look for the 'Configure' button and click it. From there you can delete previous restore points, and change the amount of space the system is allowed to user for restore points. It will also show you how much space you've used up. You may also want to create a new system restore point after cleaning those out in case SHTF and you need to recover. The new point should be much smaller in size than the sum of all previous points that you just deleted.

I followed the document, and I'm trying to delete a download file. I keep getting this message when I try to delete the file:
"There is not enough space on the disk to perform this operation"
What does this mean?
