Wow! Where to start? First of all if the computer has Windows XP loaded on it that is no longer supported by Microsoft. If you want to re-install an OS (operating system software) I would suggest Windows 7.
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.
Turn off the Computer Turn back on and Press F11 repeatedly when the message "Press F11 to start recovery" is displayed.
The recovery will load and display a menu of options:
Full System Restore (with Backup): This options will move all Hard Disk
contents to the "c:\My Backup" directory and install a new copy of
Windows. This option preserves your existing data files, however all
applications and settings will need to be reinstalled. This option
requires 4GB of free Hard Disk space for the new OS.
Alway suggest backing up your data before you do any recovery
If you are using windows as your o/s; open the control panel, click on performance & maintenance, run a disk cleanup then defrag your drive. The recovery bar red means that the space allotted for recovery operations is very low. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
low disk space because one of the drive is almost full it is having below 200MB space so this message will appear . i think so C drive is full just right click on the drive and make disk cleanup and in that select temporary internet files,temp files, recyclebin,compress old files and say ok it will remove all the files from u r computer which is not required finally space will get increased and message will not come
right-click on "My Computer" then select properties, then System restore.
You now have two choices, expand the % disk space to use for the system restore, or Turn off System Restore, which will wipe out all past restore points.
Do the first one, see if everything goes back to normal. if not, then run disk cleaner foundat: start, programs. accessories, systems tools. This should mkae your Operating system speed up a bit by cleaning out temp files and other clutter. Then defrag, also found in the same folder as Disk cleaner. Next, do a search of your entire hard drive for all files ending in .tmp. delete them all. Those steps combined, should speed things up considerably. Only when everything is working fine again should you turn of system restore and then turn it back on again to get everything cleaned out. This last should be a last resort only, when you are running out of Hard drive space.
Sometimes manufactures make the recovery partition so small that windows sees it as low space hard drive, it is annoying, as you arn't even supposed to save data to it anyway (it is reserved for emergency recovery) your best bet is to turn off windows disk monitoring, the only trade off is that if you C: drive gets full, windows won't warn you (but you should be able to monitor it on your own anyway.
goto START then RUN and type REGEDIT.EXE and push enter
Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer
If it's not there, create a DWORD value and call it NoLowDiskSpaceChecks.
Double-click on NoLowDiskSpaceChecks, and enter the value 1, and press OK.
BE CAREFUL IN THE REGISTRY!! AS YOU CAN CORRUPT YOUR ENTIRE WINDOWS INSTALL!
