|Not 1 to disagree with anyone, especially such as expert as you Xpuser, But I have the exact same problem but without the messages.|
My laptop has files that my son stored on the recovery drive, and even though it's empty (except the recovery portion obviously), it shows red and only 43Mb left. Yet I have done 2 full/clean system recoveries with that drive.
I'll also add, that considering the restore is my only allowed recovery, I am too scared to attempt putting the driveback to normal as
A: I don't know how,
B: Even though it's in a bad way, it isn't broke, so I don't want to fix it without a garauntee that the drive will be normal again.
Apologies for not knowing a decent answer for the poster, but I will follow this thread to see if we can put our drives back to normal.
ps: My son is now banned from any pc except his own now lol.
He can mess his own computer up, and find his own way out of his hole hee hee.
