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.

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.

Rather than mess up your registry, remove any files which you may
