my main drive Local disk (C:) has 204 GB free of 222GB
my other drive is labeled L(E:) has 400 MB free of 9.99 GB

from What I can see the L(E:) drive space never changes even if I run a disk clean up
and I do not know why its labeled like this L(E:)

how ever what I do know is certain folders are duplicates for example Movie maker is on both drives and I tried to delete it off drive L(E:) and it wont allow me to delete it for more space.
On drive L(E:), before I had less than 400MB of space showing and it was red lined for low space so I compressed the drive L(E:) and it stayed at 400MB and Never changes, so I would appreciate it for some one to help me with this duplicated and low space situation , everything is working properly I just do a lot of disk clean and def ragging to keep things running smoothly, I have windows Vista Home Basic
and IE 7 and a Dell 531 desk top

Drive L(E:) is probably a recovery partition and should not be messed with. Just do not try to use it. If it is coming up with messages of it being full simply turn off those messages.

Have to agree with Xhi, this is probably where your recovery option is.
Only clean C drive.

What is the make and model of your machine?

Can you also post a screenshot of your drive management please
