Recovery disk almost full

My recovery disk is almost full. How do I remove unwanted files, or increase the size of the drive partition?

Welcome to the forum.

The Recovery disk, AKA the Recovery Partition, is meant to be almost full as it is not to be used for anything other than the Recovery Software and files.  If you or software is trying to use that partition, then it should be stopped.  When looking with MY PC or This PC, it should look Red, usually is drive d and showing as full, as meant to be.

My advise is to see if there are files in there that are not part of the recovery.  If some software is trying to use it, then identify the software and change the file location it is set to use.  Other than that, all is well and do not worry any further.
