A hard drive is usually partitoned, one hard drive will show up as two. The recovery drive should not be messed with. Don't add files , nor delete files from that drive.

Fuji frontier 550 shows error "disk free space limit reached" in error log info. but despite doing disk defragment and disk clean-up, still no prints or orders are coming out.


Your hard Drive is full.

Go to My Computer
Right Click the C:/ and go to properties
It will then show you how much Disk space is used and that is free.

You need to uninstall some old programs you dont use anymore. If you are using Windows XP go to your Control Panel and then Add or Remove Programs
Uninstall the programs you dont want.

Now you should have enough space to install your printer software.

Need to reload windows xp on Emachines PC


Yes all you have to do is.........

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

Low disk space


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.

Bought a floor sample, a few simple questions, please help!


Most new VAIO's do not come with any recovery CD or DVD what so ever.

The Vista installation has a recovery on the Hard Drive, so the use is welcome to create his own backup and recovery CD's. SONY tech support will probably tell you the same.

As you use windows, it will create it's own recovery points, which will also be stored on the Hard Drive, eating up some space. This is normal unless you turn off this Windows feature.

Also, did you delete files or did they just end up in the File Trash Bin ?
Clean out the file trash bin from time to time to free up some of the HD space.

Hope this helps
