My Computer screens- do not look like the screens used in the link you provided...
I have windows 7. Version 6.1 Service Pack 1
HP pavillion notebook dv7
On the one screen - where I can change the Disc to save Backups to -
there is a choice of C: Drive or E: Drive ... and it looks like C drive is already highlighted.
There was also a place where it said "Turn off notifications about .... " (low disc space)
I CLICKED on this but NOTHING happened!
If you need more info pls let me know!

- HEWLETT- PACKARD
these are the files within HP folder
- BIOS UPDATE
- Quick Web
- System Diags
Thank you again! I am lost on this one!

Ok, that is the problem, system restore should Not be turned on for Drive E
Turn it off, here is how.
Control Panel (icon view) > System > System Protection (left side)
When the popup opens and populates, highlight drive E: in the "protection settings" box and then click "configure", a new window opens, then tick "turn off system protection" then click ok to close all windows, close control panel.
This will prevent future low disk space for E:
