Re: my recover d drive is almost full how do ii empty it.

Recovery partition is a factory made paritition to help recovery the system back to factory settings. It normally has less space which is just needed to successfully perform Recovery. It is not recommended to use the space on this drive for any personal data backup. Refer the following weblink:

If you do not have any personal data on the Recovery Paritition, you can ignore the free space available in that partition.
