    Unhappy Low Disk Space

    Hi,

    I'm a newbie.. this is my first post, so please excuse me if I'm typing gibberish.. I know not of what I speak/type....

    In a nutshell, I keep getting this annoying information box popping up every 10 minutes or so in the lower right hand corner of my browser warning me that I have Low Disk Space.

    It then proceeds to inform me that " YOu are running out of disk space on RECOVERY D: drive." and that I should click the box to see if I can increase my disk space by removing files in my Recycle Bin.

    The first time I clicked on it, I had some files in the recycle bin, so I emptied it. But 10 minutes later the same box pops up with the same message. I click on it, and it tells me I can delete 0 bytes of space by emptying my recycle bin! And This same message now keeps popping back up every ten minutes. How can I have low disk space when there is nothing in the bin to empty/delete?

    I have looked deeper into the disk cleaner by checking "other options" and removed some files from my C: drive that were not necessary but am now wondering if I should go into my system Restore and Shadow Copies and remove all but the most recent restore point?

    Would that solve my problem, or Am I missing a step that will enable me to turn off or stop this box from continuously popping up on my screen. It only happens when I am using my browser, Windows Explorer 9. I am using the Windows 7 OS and have an HP G60 laptop.

    Also, I don't know if there is any connection, but this box seemed to pop up shortly after I installed Norton Security Suite to my laptop.

    Any help you can offer to make this annoying "reminder" from appearing would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Carmel

    Hi traleecarmel,

    Welcome to help2go!
    Your windows error is===> You are running out of disk space on RECOVERY D: drive.
    First of all see information below:

    The purpose of the Recovery (D) drive is to store all the files needed to do an emergency recovery when the system become unstable. The Recovery (D) drive is actually a partition on the main hard drive in your computer - not an actual physical drive. It has much less available space than Drive (C). If you use the Recovery (D) drive to store files (such as files from using MS Backup), the drive quickly becomes full and can cause serious problems when you need to use system recovery.
    Please see link for more:

    Error: Low Disk Space. You are running out of disk space on Recovery (D) HP G60 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

    Lets take a closer look at a few things.
    Please download MiniToolBox from HERE
    Checkmark following boxes:
    • List Installed Programs
    • List Users, Partitions and Memory size
    • Click Go and post the result.


    NOTE Anytime a computer acts weird and Norton Anti Virus is installed, 9 times out of 10 it's Norton Anti Virus that's causing the issue. Perhaps Norton is creating some backup files and putting them on the "D'' Drive / Partition... So yes Norton will be something to consider as the culprit...

    To stop Low Disk Space errors, remove files that are not related to recovery from the Recovery (D) drive. Do so as follows click on the link below:

    Error: Low Disk Space. You are running out of disk space on Recovery (D) HP G60 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

    I clicked on the link but the very first line of the document states: "This document applies to HP and Compaq DESKTOP computers with Windows VISTA

    I just want to make sure before I go clicking and deleting files that this document applies to my situation. Seeing as I am not using a DESKTOP... (it's a laptop) and I'm not running VISTA, my OS is Windows 7.

    Sorry for the apparent paranoia.. but I've been burnt before and just want to confirm what I'm seeing and doing before actually doing it.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Hi traleecarmel,

    Are you still with me? Please let me know how you're coming along and if there are any questions. I will be away from the internet for a few days. Others may be able to help as well during that time....

    hi traleecarmel,

    It seems like you are worried about the disk space of your computer. Don't worry about it. Windows has in built tools to increase your data space.
    -Simply go to my computer
    -right click on the partition with low disk space
    -select properties
    -select the disk clean up button.
    then follow the instructions.
