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?

When everything else fails, read the instructions.
