    Recently moved data from old XP PC via transfer cable to new VISTA Home
    Premium PC. Get a message daily: "Low Disk Space on Recovery.
    Drive C shows 189 GB free of 226 GB
    Drive E shows 232 GB free of 232 GB
    Drive D (Recovery) shows 28.6 MB free of 6.27 GB

    Don't know what to do. Should I increase size of Recovery Disk? If so,
    how? Should I delete some files from Recovery Disk? How?

    Thanks

    Your D (Recovery) drive is a partition created by your computer manufacturer to
    enable you to recover your system to a factory shipped condition. It should not
    be used for anything. Were you given the option of making Recovery DVDs? If
    you made Recovery DVDs you can delete it and expand your C:\ drive to take up
    the space. If you just do not want the low space warning you can go to Control
    Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management and delete
    the D drive letter. This will not harm the data on the drive. To access it
    again you can reassign the drive letter.

    I went to control panel>administrative tools>disk management, then at the far
    right I clicked on more actions>all tasks>format, this removes all data from
    recovery D.
