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.

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.

I get this problem and can't get past it help please Unmountable_boot_volume its a problem with the recovery system a blue screen for dell inspiron 2650


I sure hope you kept a recent backup. Something has gone terribly wrong in there. If you didn't keep a recent backup, do you still have the Windows setup disk(s), or the Recovery disk? It sounds like you will need to do one of those. STRONG ADVICE_ DO NOT start to run a Recovery or Resoration disk NOR a backup and then stop it part-way done! I did that recently, and it took me 3 months to find a solution. It deletes all your partitions. Then nothing will work without much research and work. Once you start a recovery from a disk or a backup, let it finish! It may take awhile, but it's worth it. Don't panic. Just do a backup restore or a restoration disk, and any lost data, will be lost. People call using the Restoration CD a "reformat". It gives you a fresh install of Windows. Try to always keep a recent full partitions backup, it's worth it's weight in gold. Feel for you!

I lost my recovery disks during move now i cannt reboot system theres a problem on hdd it says no room left so now wont let me make any recovery disks yet there is nothing on hdd


Start Internet Explorer.
Click Tools.
Click Internet Options.
Click Delete Temporary Internet Files.
Close Internet Explorer.

Click Start.
Click Run.
Type CMD and press ENTER.
Type CD LOC and press the TAB key and then the ENTER key.
Type CD TEMP and press ENTER.
Type ERASE * and press ENTER.
Type Y to confirm that you want to erase everything in this "temp(orary)" folder.
Type CD \WINDOWS\TEMP and press ENTER.
Type ERASE * and press ENTER.
Type Y to confirm that you want to erase everything in this "temp(orary)" folder.
Type DIR and press ENTER.
You should see something like:

20 File(s) 3,165,781 bytes
20 Dir(s) 1,443,053,568 bytes free

i.e., where 1.4 Gigabytes is enough space to hold about 2 full CD-ROMs of data.

Find a USB memory-stick that is mostly "empty", and connect it,
to create more "available" disk-space, e.g., 1 or 2 or 4 or 8GB more.

Now, try to make the recovery disks.

The IBM Recovery Disk that comes with those laptops is set up for Windows 2000, not Windows XP Pro. The answer is No, you cannot use the IBM Recovery Disk for them, if you install Windows XP Pro.

However! You will have a recovery disk, because you will have the Full Installation disk for Each laptop. Windows XP Pro Full Installation Disk.

(Microsoft Users License states "One genuine copy of Windows per One computer" That means you need Two, genuine copies of Microsoft Windows XP Pro)

My computer is displaying a message about the recovery disk is running out of space, I have cleaned it and it is still displaying this message, what shall I do?


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!

DO THIS FIX AT YOUR OWN RISK!
