I get the message Low disk space You are running out of space on HP_RECOVERY (d:).How do I fix this? When I explore the D drive I have a RECOVERY file, a MediaID BIN file and a File Folder with a lot of backup files. What can I safely get rid of?
Also run "disc cleanup" on the D partition and click the "more options" tab. Click delete shadow copies etc. Wait a few moments before confirming as it needs time to gather the info. This will delete any restore points etc on there that may be filling it up.
If it's anything like my Aspire the HDD is split equally and the D partition is used to store image backups on using Acer's own empowering utility. Much like Acronis TI. The recovery partition is hidden and separate and is around 5gb in size.
There are a total of 15 backup files. They seem to be full of program files (mostly nothing important games etc. but some office programs). If I delete these will the programs still be on the computer?
If you have recovery CDs/DVDs with your PC you can remove the partition and its files, if you didn't get recovery CDs/DVDs, removing the partition may prevent you recovering the system if it ever goes badly awry...
