HP Tools Drive (E:) keeps filling up on Compaq Presario CQ57

Hello.  I am running Windows 7.

The HP Tools drive keeps filling up on my Compaq Presario.  I don't know what this E: drive is for, or whether it is safe to wipe it clean?  When disk cleaner comes up, it offers only to remove the recycle bin, which is 0 kb.

 

What should I do to clean up this drive and bring usage down from 100%, and what function is it performing?

 

Thanks much!

The partition is set up with very small size to only use minimum amount of your hdd, it will always appear nealy full.

The thread HERE does offer one thing to check.

My HP tools drive is full, I am not sure what is safe to delete to free this space up.
