Recovery Image (D)

Pavilion Slimline 400-314

Some personal files were backed-up to Recovery Drive by mistake.  I am now receiving a notification that I am running out of space on that drive.  Is there a way to remove those personal files from that drive?

In general, it is possible to carefully remove just the "extra files" from the Recovery Partition.

 

Help, suggestions, links to HP documents, and examples:

Recovery Drive – Running Out of Space

 

Section Clean Up provides an example of a "clean" partition (Windows 8.x).  The file list may vary by Windows version; in most cases you will be able to discern the files that belong in the Partition.

 

The trick is to only remove those files that are not part of the Recovery file set -- use the file dates as an indicator / guideline.

 

Good Luck.
