A friend of mine has Windows Vista (HP) and keeps getting the low disk space warning in the taskbar requesting a disk cleanup on Drive D (restore partition).

How do we stop this from popping up, because there's never going to be anything to delete due to the fact that this partition is only used to restore the computer to factory specs.

Don't want her doing something with it to screw up the computer anymore than Vista on there. LOL

You may want to check that Windows is not trying to save restore points to that drive as described here:

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
