    Your D: drive is most likely a Recovery Partition set up by your computer
    manufacturer in order for you to recover your system to a factory default state
    and even if you made recovery DVDs or CDs should just be left alone.

    To get rid of the messages go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer
    Management, under Storage click Disk Management, right click on your D: drive
    and select Change drive letter and paths..., click the Remove button, OK the
    warning confirmation, OK again and close Computer Management. You will no longer
    see your D: drive in Windows Explorer or Computer, but no harm will be done and
    the low disk space alerts should stop.

    Hi,
    I have the same problem. Will your fix prevent my pc from making recovery
    points in the future?
    Thanks

    Re: low disc space in d drive (recovery

    There is a difference between a "Recovery Partition" that the computer
    manufacturer places on the hard drive with all of the necesary files to
    revert your computer back to "when 1st purchased" and the Recovery Points
    created by Vista once a day .....called "system restore"
    under start you will see Computer in the right hand dark section...right
    click and select properties...in the box that opens select Systen
    Protection...there you will see your HD with the latest restore point
    listed.If you uncheck the drive..all restore points will be deleted...in you
    recheck the drive restore points will be created again.Click the blue "how
    much etc etc line for a more detailed explanation...

    I am on Windows Vista and have followed your instructions and nothing
    changed. The clean up did not free up any space in the Recovery Drive. How
    could I have filled up that drive? Help!

    That drive is a hidden partition, reserved for recovery files. Do
    yourself a favor: stop worrying about it and turn OFF that warning.
