Programs backup to automatically to the recovery file (D drive)is full. HP setup.

HP Recommended
ENVY dv7-7243cl C2H74UA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm receiving a message about every 3 minutes stating the ( D drive ) is full, in the Red zone.  I recently installed MS Office 365, 1 year substription to replace my prior MS pay by the month office 365 program. My first contact was MS to check out their programs. The technican reported that all programs backup were automatically going to the D drive because HP initially set it up that way. I searched everything I could on the HP website and it directed me here. Could someone that knows how to correct this issue please be kind and help me out? Also, I use wireless internet.

 

Very appreciative,

Hi,


Your laptop came with Windows 8 from factory

https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c03482865

Have you upgraded to Windows 10?

If so recovery partition is not usable anymore as it had been corrupted. Have you already created HP Recovery USB using HP Recovery Manager after first setup of this notebook? You do not need Recovery partition anymore.

You can disable restore points creation/system protection for D:\ drive


Regards

Visruth.
