HP Pavillion a6112n D Drive Recovery is full. How/Can it be accessed to clean up? Don't know what filled it up and C Drive is virtually empty.

That recovery section has the files to reinstall windows on your computer, without using the disk. Unless you really need the space, and have a windows disc, I would not recommend deleting this. It can be very helpful if you ever get a very bad virus, or your system starts acting up.

Is this an XP Or Vista? And you can access it through My Computer ---> double click D:.

If this is a restoring partition, I strongly advise not to touch it. It contains many baseline files for a clean install.
Who said I couldn't have everything?

Thanks for your reply, I forgot to state it is the infamous 'Vista' OS. It won't allow access to the D drive. I'd like to see what filled it up on a casual use computer, minimal programs, no music or movies.


Thanks in advance.

It does sound like it is a recovery partition, if you google the make and model of your computer and recovery partition you should get several hits if it has one.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
