I have a Compaq Presario SR5152NX Desktop PC. I use windows 7. but when i bought the computer it had vista (i updated to windows 7 about 2 years back). Anyways recently i started to get a popup at the bottom right saying that the recovery disk is full and click to delete files. when i clicked i find that the recycling bin is empty and i cant delete anything. i deleted all my previous backups and its still full and it stops me from making a new backup because there's not enough space.I see "other files" from the manage windows backup diskspace menu which is taking majority of the space. but when i acutally go to my recovery disk i dont see any folder as such. I dont save anything other than backups on my recovery drive. from reading other forum posts i found out how to show hidden files. but im not sure what files i should avoid deleting and what files i can delete.
I have already said i used to have windows vista i said that because i think some of the files in this recovery folder have to do with vista. when i went into some of the folders i saw folders/files with the name vista. so i would like to know which files i should delete and which files i should avoid. also i have no intention to go back to vista. All i want to do is to be able to backup my computer and in case of a problem to restore it to a previous date on windows 7
Thanks so much for all your help..
