Factory_Image(D:) Low Disk Space

HP Recommended

Can someone please direct me on how I can free up more Disk space on the Factory_Image (D:) drive.

A pop up window continues to show up.

Is this dangerous to my computer?

Any help is appreciated.

for vista

This issue caused by one of two things, the 'D' drive has been used for a Microsoft Backup or personal data has been saved to the 'D' drive.

Please go to 'Start', 'Computer' and open the 'D' Drive.

  • Please click on 'Organize' and click on 'Layout'.
  • Verify there is a check beside 'Menu Bar', if not the check it.
    • On the bar above 'Organize' click on 'Tools' and then 'Folder Options'.
      • In the 'Folder Options' window click on the 'View' tab and in the list put a dot beside 'Show hidden files and folders'.
      • Uncheck 'Hide Protected System files' and click 'OK'
        • Is there a folder in the 'D' drive with the same name as the PC?
        • delete it.
        • (create a recovery disk first before you go to the next step.)
        • if you dont have that folder try to delete the preload folder.

densyo12, I am having the same trouble.

I did as you instructed and nothing has helped.

I'm preparing for the last step

 

  • (create a recovery disk first before you go to the next step.)
  • if you dont have that folder try to delete the preload folder.

How do I create a recovery disk?
