I've recently used my recovery cd's to re-install windows on my HP laptop computer. Ever since doing so, my C: drive shows up at 100% full, even though there is hardly anything on it. I go into Disk Managment and it says the following:

Volume Layout Type File Sys Status Capac FreeSp %Free Fault Tolerance Overhead

(C:) partition basic NTFS Healthy (System) 62.00GB 6MB 0% NO 0%

HP RECOVERY(D:) partition basic FAT32 Healthy 11.51GB 1.13GB 0% NO 0%

I am running on Windows XP.

Thank you in advance.

Sounds very weird. :flowers:

Here is a link to a program called JDisk:


This will tell you where all of the space is being used up. You can then check those folders and see if it is good or junk.

I hope this helps. :thumbsup:

Possibility...backup was made and stored on C: by the recovery/restore software.
