Hi, Sorry but I have a lot to learn about computers.
I followed the Vista prompts to back-up my computer but didn't have any discs at the time. I told it to back up to the computer. Now my Recovery D: drive only has 2 GB of 9.65GB available. The computer has given me warnings about it almost being full. Any way I can remove this back-up and put it on a Disc instead? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Did you use the built in Vista backup tool? If so, which one did you use - the file backup or the complete PC backup?

Also, please check your PM's for one from me.

It was the Vista backup and the whole PC backup I believe. I don't know what PM's are... sorry.

A 'pm' is a private message. Look at the top of the page index on this forum. Up in the right hand corner, you should see New Messages
Click on it, and then click on the one that John sent. :huh:
