Welcome to, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you're using.

Windows XP, Widows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Or a Mac.

If it's a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows.

Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

Also, do you have microsoft office installed on your computer? If so, what version?

One more question, whats the full name brand and model of your computer?

Low disc space Lenovo Recovery(Q:)
Expert:  Dustin replied 1 year ago.

Aha.. thank you.

The Q drive will always be low on disk space, because its a lenovo recovery drive and its not meant to have anything saved to it, other then the factory recovery files.

A simple fix you can do in windows 10 is turn off that warning.. Heres how

  1. Go to Settings > Notifications and Actions Settings
  2. Turn off Windows Explorer notifications (near bottom)

Once thats done, you should no longer get the low disk space error message, but you will still have usage of your recovery drive should you need to reinstall windows.

If you have any further questions, let me know.

I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a rating of excellent ( 5 stars ) selected and submitted below this answer or at the top right of the screen. I always answer follow up questions.
