I have an HP laptop running Vista. I'm trying to backup my files to the "D" drive but it shows full and the backup always fails. Does anyone know how to overwrite the "D" drive so I can back this up?

If your D: drive is the recovery partition, you should leave it alone

The "D" drive is the "HP Recovery" drive and is where I've saved the backup before. It won't overwrite it to do another backup. Should I just backup on a disk or thumb drive?
