Low Disk space on Recovery Disk data backup

December 29, 2010 at 09:58:57
Specs: Windows Vista
I have a Windows Vista Ultimate system
Service Pack 2

I continue to receive a message stated that I have Low Disk space on Recovery Disk D
When I look at the D Disk the 2 applications with the most KB's are:
Start Rep Application 492 KB
RecENV Application 418 KB

What should I do with them? May I delete them, or do I need them? If I need them am I able to store them somewhere else?
The 2 above applications were Modified on 11/02/2006

You should not delete or modify in any way the contents of the recovery partition. Doing so could make it impossible to do a system recovery. In any event deleting these files would reclaim very little space.

Have you been using the recovery partition as additional disk space?

The reason I ask is normally that partition would not grow in size to the extent that you get such error messages.

The only conclusion would be that other files and/or directories have been added to that partition that should NOT be there.

In any case those 2 files you are quoting are way too small to make any impact on freeing disk space.

What is the size of that partition and what does it contain?
