I just clicked on My Computer and noticed the recovery disk has a red line all the way down and says 570MB free of 26.2 Gigs, am I in trouble or is it a problem, if so how do I correct that?
It could mean that something is saving files there, which it should not be. I'm not sure how to fix that because I build my own so I don't deal with recovery partitions.
Wait for another person to come by. They might know.
Nothing serious. Open the recovery partition and see what is in there. Files that don't belong there, move them to some other place. Happens all the time - possibly by the system file backup - did you backup files at some point in time using the system file backup facility ??
And there is probably nothing at all wrong with your C drive. What makes you think there is something wrong ??
No I did not back up files using the system file backup. I did just do a clean install yesterday. There 4 files in there, they are Kaspersky rescue disk, recovery, $UpgDrv$ and ADRinfos. I ahve no idea what those are, do I delete them of move them to C: Drive?
The Kaspersky files definitely do not belong there. Move those to C. The others leave alone.
If you post a picture of your Disk Management, I could advise you how to create an additional partition to move your data away from C. Because if your system goes belly up and you have to reinstall, then you do not lose your files. In the interim, make frequent images but use free Macrium, not Win7 imaging which is a dog.
Actually there is nothing wrong with the recovery drive being full and having a red line. You are not supposed to use it anyway. My advice would be to leave it alone before you mess it up.
@Whs: this guy has 873 posts here are you sure this is not a spoof??? Either that or you are telling him things that are completely beyond his capability and he should get local help.
It works for others. In short you simply have to put the picture somewhere on an internet site. Call it up in your browser and capture it's URL then click on the Image button and paste it in there.
Use Dropbox. This time, if you don't have dropbox account, then create one.
Sometime, its better to seek available alternatives rather than questioning again and again.
Good Luck though.
