Not knowing how your system is set up can lead to several questions:Do You have more than one Hard Drive or just one that has 2 or more partitions?
Which drive or partition is Windows installed on?
When you go to My Computer and Right-Click properties what does it say about free-space?
While it is unusual to recieve pop-up's regarding hard drive space, I guess that anything is possible. You may want to move files or programs to another external drive or burn them to CD's to free space. Anything else is just guessing as to why this is happening on your system.
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

it says I have 7.36 GB used and 563 MB Free. I have one hard drive for burner and downloader. I don't know what windows is installed in?

The only thing I see in my D: is my recovery it's locked can't uninstall it and it says not too. Everything else is in my c: drive? So, I don't understand I'm so confused?

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

Disable Low Disk Space Message - #65 on the left.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

You are confused? That means that I'm not alone...If D is your Recovery drive, it is full from the factory and you won't be able to save any additional programs or files to it, PERIOD... Your description of the amount of space must be your C: drive (which seems very small, unless we are talking about a laptop or a very old desktop) or maybe from your description a CDROM drive...You can see why I'm confused....

Ah, yea that's why I'm here. I'm very confused but onething I do know for sure is I have 6% Free space in my D: drive.
I have loads of free space in my C: drive.

What it says up there is infact my D: drive 7.36 GB used up and only 563 MB Free space. And yes your right that makes sense it full from the factory.

Sorry that sounded rude I've been on since 7:30 this morning trying to fix my computer and I'm getting cranky I apologize for sounding rude.

Ok, here's where I'm confused what is my D: drive for? I keep getting my D: drive is full and it will cause my computer to run slow and I may not be able to install updates. I thought all my downloads and updates go to my C: drive and if my C: were full it would cause it to slow down.
