Windows Recovery is using it, You need to turn it of on all Partitions other than the one with the Operating System on it, this should be set to about 9% of the drive

Sorry - painting has to be done!
As Woodchip said - check the system restore settings and turn it off on any partition other than the one Vista is installed on, usually C drive. It is set as a percentage of the hard disk but only restores changes made to the system not your personal data. If you have a large hard drive even 5% may be perfectly adequate.
