I have an HP Pavilion m7480n with memory drive (D) of 2.0 GB. Message said "OUT OF MEMORY" and stopped the task. System says that I only have 4% free space, delete un-necessary files. BUT! How do I find out what files are in the D drive in order to delete the unnecessary ones?

It's most likely your recovery partition.
Don't touch it.
Disable low disk space monitoring: http://www.theeldergeek.com/low_disk_space_message.htm

WARNING!!! This suggestion involves editing of the registry. Improper editing of the registry can cause your computer to become unbootable. ALWAYS backup your registry before modifying the registry.

To backup your registry, create a System Restore point. Alternatively, you can use the free utility ERUNT to create backups of your registry: http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/

For more information about modifying the registry, see this Microsoft article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/256986

Unless you turned something on your recovery partition should not be throwing that warning off. Lets get some more information about your computer:

Please perform the following, so that we can get the exact specs of your computer. This will better assist us in helping you more.



Publish a Snapshot using Speccy



The below is for those who cannot get online



Please take caution when attaching a text file to your post if you cannot copy/paste the link to your post, you will need to edit it to make sure that your Windows Key is not present.

Go ahead and follow Broni's advice. That is your recovery partition.
