I continually get a pop-up that says low disk space on recovery D: and also a pop-up that the last backup failed. How can I fix this problem and keep this pop-up from pestering me?

hi,,,, if you have a recovery partition on the pc, then there should be nothing in there but the recovery file,,, nothing should be saved there or stored there at all,,,, the recovery partition is just a copy of the recovery disc but its a lot easier to use from there,,, you do not have to boot from disc etc,,, also if you have auto backups enabled for a certain time and day etc and keep missing that day ie ,, the pc is off,, or the backup is saving to the recovery partition and its full,,,, then you will get this warning,,,, switch off auto backups or back it up to somewhere else,,, external hdd would be a good idea,,, its never a good idea to save backups to the same harddrive,, even if partitioned, just incise the hdd fails as you will also lose the backup.
good luck.
