For some reason it says my computer is full on the drive that wants to install updates. It's trying to work through the Recovery Drive... I THINK it's supposed to be updating to the OS? Is there a way to move everything from the Recovery Drive to the OS on a Windows 7 Computer? Right now I can't even clean up disc space to install the 29 waiting updates.

Is it windows updates you are trying to install?
