Do not place anything in the recovery drive. It is absolutely not for storage.

Go into the control panel and check in  system restore settings to verify that the recovery partition is not being used for windows system restore backups.

 

1.Click Start and right-click Computer .
2.Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
3.In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK .
