Low disk space on recovery disk (d) drive

Okay, I am so tired of receiving Low Disk Space on recovery (D). I have done everything it asked. Empty Recycle Bin which is EMPTY. I am not a computer wizard but it seems unfair that I have pay over $150.00 year to correct this problem once a year. I have checked a lot of places and it just keeps telling me the same thing. That doesn't work. Can someone explain to me in English (plain) how to correct this problem.

 

I did just install a HP wireless printer 3052A

Do you have the D: drive selected in system restore?

 

If your computer is saving restore points for D: this could cause it to use up disk space for no apparent reason.

Look for a folder called "System Volume Information" at the root of D:

 

I am assuming you don't use the D: drive to store any personal files or swap files...

To modify system protection settings:

  1. Right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties". The window should show the version, processor, etc.
  2. In the left pane, click System protectionIf you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. In the box that lists available drives, see if D: is "on" or "off". If it is "on", select it and click "configure"
  4. Select "Turn off system protection". This will remove the system restore points just for the D Drive.
  5. Hit OK to close the settings windows.

This is how I do it on Windows 7 Home Premium. If your version is different, the options might not be the same as these.

 

I hope this helps.

I am sorry. If System Restore is not filling up your drive, it is either a user or a virus using disk space on D.

 

From the factory, the recovery partition has enough free space to prevent these messages from occurring.

 

If you have not been placing files on the D drive, and a virus scan comes up clean, you can probably just disable the notifications all together.

 

If you are comfortable with editing the registry, you can follow the steps listed at the links below:

 

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windowsvista/ht/dislowdisk.htm

 

If you are not comfortable editing the registry, you can make a file that will automatically make the changes for you.

 

Open notepad, and copy/paste the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Policies\\Explorer]
 "NoLowDiskSpaceChecks"=dword:00000001

 Then save it as a .reg file ["save as..." -> Save as type: "all files *.* " -> File name: "nolowdiskspacechecks.reg"]

 

Double click on the file you just saved and it will import the setting to the registry for you.

I had that issue as well but I followed the instructions and it worked--

 

Did you increased the drive space? Increase the space and see if it work--My irritating problem has been solved.

 

Good luck
