NEED TO KNOW HOW I CAN PREVENT BACKUP FILES FROM GOING INTO MY RECOVERY(D), AND FILLING IT UP. I AM RECEIVING MESSAGE THAT I HAVE LOW DISK SPACE IN RECOVERY DISK. HOW DO I FREE UP THIS SPACE, AND HOW
Are you sure the files are going in there? Many times the manufacturers only allocate the size that they need partitioned on that drive. I have seen many cases where that drive is full from factory and people always get that message.
- Click Start and right-click Computer .
- Select Properties .
- Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
- In the section "Automatic restore points", remove the selection next to the D: drive, and then click OK . If the D: drive was not selected, close this window.
Figure 3: System Protection tab with D: drive unselected
- Right-click Start Explore All Users .
- Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
- From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
- From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
- Select the View tab.
- Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
- From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
- If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
- If you previously copied or created any files into Recovery (D:) and you want to keep them, copy them to another drive - such as the C: drive.
- Find and delete any files that you previously copied onto the Recovery (D:) drive.
CAUTION:Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot, hp, PC-Doctor, pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive. If you are not sure, do not delete the file.
Press Shift + Delete to permanently remove the files.
To delete files created from MS Backup (MS Backup files are not recovery files), find and delete the folder with the same name as the computer name in the Recovery (D:) partition. For example if the computer name is BOB-PC, the folder containing the backup files would be named BOB-PC and would be deleted.
- Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
- To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
- From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
- Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
- Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
- Click OK .
- Close explorer. The Out of Disk Space errors should no longer appear. If you would like to use the Microsoft Backup Tool again, open it and select a different external backup device to store the backup files on.

How do you use a BlacX docking station to transfer
as long as the drive is working..not clicking or non responding.just pop in the hard drive and it will auto open in windows.or other os then drag and drop as needed. you can open "my computer" to see the new drive and letter. open both drives in two separate windows and move as needed.
