The purpose of the Recovery (D:) drive is to store all the files needed to do an emergency recovery when the system become unstable. The Recovery (D:) drive is actually a partition on the main hard drive in your computer - not an actual physical drive. It has much less available space than Drive (C:). If you use the Recovery (D:) drive to store files (such as files from using MS Backup), the drive quickly becomes full and can cause serious problems when you need to use system recovery.

Do not store files on the Recovery drive. The only files on the Recovery drive should be related to a system recovery.

To stop Low Disk Space errors, remove files that are not related to recovery from the Recovery (D:) drive.

It is generally ok for the warning message to come up, because D drive doesnt have much space and always almost full

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
