my NB30 netbook D drive is nearly full.

July 24, 2013 at 02:17:40
Specs: Windows 7
I now use an external hard drive to backup the netbook but have only done this once. I think the netbook has been weekly backing up onto the D drive which is now almost full. I think this may be slowing down the internet on my netbook.
Can anyone tell me how to free-up some space?

Hi paulchenka,

What is the size of D drive?
Is the operating system installed on D drive?
Do you install applications on D drive?

Please perform Disk Cleanup using the link mentioned below:

Generally the D partition is the Recovery Partition & judging by the file names you listed, it appears that's exactly what it is. And if it is the recovery partition, you shouldn't be using it for storage.

108GB seems awfully large though, are you sure about that? According to the above, your netbook has a 160GB HDD (actual size is approx 149GB). 108GB is approx 70% of the HDD space, something is not right.

Maybe you can choose differential backup to save space in daily life with help of AOMEI Backupper. And you can resize your disk by free edition of Partition Assistant.
