Re: HP tools disk full.How to free up space?

i looked up on some other place and my problem is solved:smileyhappy:..

first step is to turn off the automatic back up by going to

start->control panel->backup and restore->turn off schedule (which is on the left)

next step is to delete a couple of files from the hp tools drive E

go to hp tools drive ( through START-> COMPUTER->hp tools drive)

there will be 5 items there.

the one folder with the user"s name and HP after it

for example mine was OWNER -HP

which contains all the unwanted backups needs to be deleted .

and the other one is mediaID-bin

rest of the 3 has to be kept as it is!..

my problem got solved!

What version of Windows are you using? If you are using Windows 7, under control panel, select "System and Security" and then you will see "Backup and Restore".
