I hope I'm posting this in the right area, but I'm not sure. Sorry if I'm not! Anyways, recently I installed Windows 7. I used to have Windows XP. I don't know if I still have windows.old on my system, but my HP_Recovery (D:) only has 577 MB free. Is this normal? I just don't want my computer to crash due to a lack of memory. Also,
You're asking about two different subjects. I assume, Windows XP and now Windows 7 are installed on C:\ drive. If so, then D:\ partition, or drive is a recovery partition, which would be needed only, if you wanted to go back to XP. If you're planning to stay with 7, you don't need D partition at all.
