Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Is there a way to increase the size of the D Drive or another way to solve this problem?
I have an HP Pavilion dv5237cl.
You do NOT need to defrag the recovery partition. The contents of that partition are most likely in a compressed form, and in any case, unchanging, so do not require a defrag. It's a good idea to leave the recovery partition absolutely alone.
For future reference, if you need to defragment a normal partition in low space conditions, try something advanced like Diskeeper 2008. Diskeeper is the best and most powerful defragmenter, and can defragment drives with even less than 5-10% free disk space. By comparison, the windows defragger requires atleast 15%, and yet does not defrag system files.

For it to have gotten to that point where only 4% space is left, something that uses that drive for a temp isnt cleaning out the temp files it places there. One thing that is known to do that to the recovery partition is Norton 360. If you cannot defragment it, then you need to back up all files you want to keep, then wipe out all your partitions and reinstall the OS ( OS disc needed & recovery discs needed).
