I went to programs and removed drive (d) i have had no probs since doing this my laptop is an HP COMPAQ 6720S
If you remove drive (d) please make shore you have your back up disks as you can not use f11 no more then you can allways restore if you want
I DID A FORMAT OF DRIVE (D) IT SEEMS TO WORK OK SO I CAN STILL USE F11 AND RESTORE NOW . WINDOWS IS ON C .I did this in the end .As long as you have your disks you are safe to try
hi i brought a philips 512MB, i put my songs on then after a while i deleted them all so i can put new ones on ive tried puttin new ones on and i only have 443MB and there are no songs on the mp3.
Hey, I recently bought a Hp labtop its a Pavilion entertainment pc and so I was wondering if it is safe to delete some files/stuff on the recovery drive to clear up space since it says its full and which files can I delete so that it doesn't affect my main drive. Last time I tried it I ended up losing my recent files.
how do i get files from the d: recovery drive i can't get into it
Just finished with a live chat with an HP Tech Support guy, he recommend this action and it worked for me:
1. Click on Start and then Run
2. Type regedit and click OK
3. Click on the File menu and click Export
4. Type the filename as regbackup and Save the file to your Desktop.
From the Registry window,
1. Click on the '+' sign next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER
2. Click on the '+' sign next to SOFTWARE
3. Click on the '+' sign next to Microsoft
4. Click on the '+' sign next to Windows
5. Click on the '+' sign next to CurrentVersion
6. Click on the '+' sign next to Policies
7. Click on the '+' sign next to Explorer
8. Highlight Explorer
9. Click On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
10. Type NoLowDiskSpaceChecks and then press ENTER.
11. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
12. Type 1 and then click OK.
Restart the computer for the changes to take effect.
You'll no longer get the message about low disk space again.
Hope it helps,
Going to the regedit and editing does not work. I did it several different ways and none work. I have not try adding more space on the "D" drive. I would like to back up the recovery drive on a flash drive and get rid of the "D" drive. Is that possible?
low memory on my D recovery drive -- (Vista) --Solution.Is to clear memory hoard 9.9 G.B 0f unnecessary junk. Yet how is it done ?
Hi. I just got a Seagate Replica 500 gb External Drive I'm very happy with. It was the only e.d. that would back up my entire computer with its software... OS, applications and files. (it also backs up more than 1 computer). It has backed up my D: recovery drive! My D drive is almost full after a year. I won't ask what it is exactly that's being backed up, but I thought it was the bad stuff that was going there... you know, the things that are corrupt, broken, bad files, etc. #I was mistaken) that I could clean up or wipe out... now I don't think that's the case. But I do wonder, should the external drive be backing up my D drive at all? It's taking up space and being backed up continuously. Should I turn the D drive off now that I have my external drive... system restore for D drive to off, and reboot? Should the external drive be backing up my D drive at all? In the event of restore from the external drive, I wouldn't need to restore the D drive, right? :/ Diane
p.s. another unrelated buggy thing... why would Seagate say that the external drive's functions open in Windows Explorer when it doesn't, it opens in the Windows OS... curious. Thanks.
