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.

  1. Click Start c01508537.gif and right-click Computer .
  2. Select Properties .
  3. Click System Protection from the left side of the Window.
  4. 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
    c01556005.jpg
  5. Right-click Start Explore All Users .
  6. Before you can remove the backup files and folders, you need to be able to view hidden system files as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press the Alt key on the keyboard to make the menu bar appear in the window.
    2. From the file menu, click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select the View tab.
    4. Select Show hidden files and folders , remove the selection from Hide protected operating system files and then click OK .
  7. From the Folder Options window in explorer, double-click Recovery (D:) .
  8. If a Window opens stating "You don't currently have permission to access this folder" opens. Click Continue .
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Several confirmation windows open. Click Continue , and Yes until the folder is deleted.
  12. To set Windows Folder Options back to their original setting as follows:
    1. From the explorer window press Alt to view the file menu.
    2. Click Tools , and then select Folder Options .
    3. Select do not show hidden files and folders and select Hide protected operating system files .
    4. Click OK .
  13. 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.

When I tried to back up my files, it stopped when it was almost finished and now a pop up box keeps coming up saying your D drive is full, low disk space, delete un wanted files. I dont know what to...


Sort your files and delete those files from D drive which are trash in your thought or simply delete the folder which you selected for the backup, delete completely the folder.

Clean old files out of a computer


go to "my computer" and click on the drive (usually "C") and click on explore. the drive storage files will open so that you can choose which ones you want to delete. You can delete one file at a time or hold down the CNTRL Key and keep selecting files but don't try to do too many at once, maybe 10 or 15 at a time, just hit the delete key and they will be gone, realize that once they are gone they are actually in the recycle bin and can be recovered. You will not get your space back until you actually go into the recycle bin and delete the files that are there but once you do this,its final and your files are gone forever (well not exactly, but it would be difficult to get them back).
if you have a drive besides the "C" drive that you want to deltet files on, you can go to the drive and choose "select all files" and then hit the delete key, these will go to into the recycle bin as well and you'll have to detlet them there too to actually recover all your space. Be advised that some files are so large that when you hit the delete key the file won't go to the recycle bin but a diaglog box will open asking you if you want to delete the file.

Video files clogging hard drive


If they are video files, movies and the like, the best way is to burn them to a disk and then simply delete them from the drive.

More space required on C drive.


Hi,

You can recover your c drive space by using the disk cleanup utility .
Just click on :-
Start>accessories> system tools> Disk Cleanup

A new window popup here you select c drive fro cleanup.

It will calculate now the space thatcan be free.
select all the files that can be deleted and click ok.

It will give you space occupied by unnecessary file that was using using your harddisk space.

Low disk space and I did clear files.


Low disc space really means nothing, but low disc space.

I understand you have cleared your files, but your going to have to remove more....if you have excessive music, pictures, and videos...try backing them up to a DVD or flash drive, then deleting them off of the computer.

If you cannot seem to clear anymore space the next thing to do would be purchasing an external hard drive. This way you can save files on that drive while not adding anymore to the current drive. You can view some external hard drives here

My maxtor external hard drive has done a scheguled Plan b backup but files that I removed from my master hard drive to free up space because I had them saved on my external hard drive are now missing from...


When a file is delete, it's still there on the drive, just as before; all that happens is that the file table marks it as free space and changes its name so it's no longer visible. There are a number of "undelete" utilities available, including several good ones, like asoftech data recovery that helped me before:
