On of my flock has e-mail to say he is getting the following reading from is HP laptop
-o0-
'HP (C:)
free 687 GB (three quarters free space)

FACTORY_IMAGE (D:)
1.51 GB free of total 11.2GB'
-o0o-

I read that 'D' is the normal 'Factory' system back up and there for my advie would be - 'Don't Touch'
But is he correct is assuming that the space is diminishing and should have some 'clearing'?
If so what should be done?

I don't have HP, but all looks quite normal to me.

Just make sure he/she does not put anything on to D: just leave as-is.

It looks to me like he has a 750GB HDD partitioned. He certainly doesn't appear to be short of space on C:

That's normal.

Tell them to forget about the D partition.

He She means Mb free not Gig,
It needs a new Drive Fitting that is bigger, To do it you need to Image the Drive that's in to a External NTFS USB drive. Remove the old drive and fit the new one then Restore the Image, I have done this on my Medion Laptop that only had a 30gig drive in when I got it. The Restore function will still work after if you do it this way using Acronis
