The alert is a notification that your Hard Disk(HDD) space is almost fill up. You should not remove or delete the "Recovery D Program"! , if you do not have any copy of Recovery CD, just in case of emegency if your PC/Laptop have any booting problems. Dell embedded the "Recovery D" because they do not give you any "Recovery Disk" in a CD/DVD form nowdays. On the safe side make a copy of the recovery disk.

Options you can do is to reduce you data on the HDD, by
1. You can uninstall programs you don't use.
2. Transfer your data to another external media

Alternatively you can upgrade your PC/Laptop with a bigger capacity HDD, and fresh install Windows on it.

Low disk space on recovery d


That is the recovery partition that holds the files to refresh the laptop to it's original state. If you are trying to save files to that partition, you aren't supposed to. If you aren't and explorer is showing low disk space and the computer is running fine, don't worry about it. The C: drive not having space is what will cause problems.

If you are running Windows 7, if you type in the wrong password once, it normally says reset password... below the box for the password. Insert a removable disk (such as USB, floppy disk, etc.)
and follow the prompts.

Hi there,

We wish you a very Happy New Year.

Which is your operating system?
Below mentioned steps are for Vista,assuming your operating system is Vista.
Post back if it is not Vista.

Run it from the Command Prompt of Recovery Options if you have, or a Vista boot disk. You can
borrow a friends if needed as they are not copy protected or make a repair disk.

And/or Run the other diagnostic tools I listed.

You probably do have hard drive issues its only can they be repaired or not.

If you need to make repair disks - these help repair Windows not re-install.

its called the blue screen of death and it could have been caused by something you installed recently or a hardware issue, have you tried booting your computer into safe-mode using the F8 key if you cannot boot into safe-mode without getting the same issue then you may have to format your hard drive

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.
