Recovery

HP Recommended

When I open my computer it always tells me the recovery drive cannot be opened.  It tells me it is 1.80 GB free of 15.2 GB

Why is it not opening please and what can I do to sort it out? 

Thanks

@Sakura2,

The purpose of the Recovery partition is to re-install the operating system, ie Windows in the event it becomes necessary. You should not be accessing that partition.  Tampering with the file structure will create an unstable situation.

Why are you attempting to open the partition?

Hi Dean and thank you for answering me so quickly.  I am an older lady and not some super geek young person!!!  I didn't get the mesage this morning when I opened my laptop so perhaps this has corrected it's self overnight!

Anyway, thank you again.
