1. By design, the partition is just large-enough to hold what it must hold.

2. I recommend that you not "touch" the partition at all, unless you intend to *NEVER* use that partition to reload the "factory-installed" version of Windows.

3. There is nothing within Windows that ever adds files/folders to that partition.  So, it should never grow.

Did you setup "Windows Backup" to write into this partition?  That was not a good thing to do. Cancel that scheduled event.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the feedback.

 

First, it was te Backup that was made on this part of the hard disk.

So after changing int, ther is new place disponible.

 

Secondly, I have updated the 'HP Client Security' tool. Also for resolving other issue.

 

desktop is now again running OK.

 

thanks

chris
