HP Recovery Drive

First post for me, so I'm hoping I'm posting in the right place.

For months now I've been getting an operating system message that tells me that my HP_Recovery drive (D Drive) is nearing capacity.  Nothing I do seems to be able to alieviate the situation and I still keep getting these messages.


If you click on the message you are taken to a menu where you can delete certain types of files to help create more space.  I've nothing left to delete and I still am getting the messages.


I hope I am not jepordizing my ability to restore my PC should the need arise.


Any ideas?

Re: HP Recovery Drive

What Windows version are you using?

Ignore it, this drive is of fixed size and never grows.
