My mother's computer is an HP with Windows Vista on it. Recently her D drive is filling up. Today it shows FULL. I know the D drive is a recovery drive and should not be touched. However, I think she may have selected the D drive to save her system back ups which I don't think you're supposed to do. This may be why her D drive is filling up all of the sudden. Is it safe to go into D drive and delete those backups or are they supposed to be there and it's a different problem? Thanks for your help.
I think your assumption is correct. I have seen this before. Go to your D drive and delete all of the backup files you find there. Also go to your backup in your OS and change the destination for these backups or this will happen again. Get yourself an external drive and direct all backups there.
