Can you boot to windows normally? Go to start orb and type cmd on search box and then right click cmd and choose run as administrator, hit Enter.

On cmd prompt type d: hit Enter again. Type dir *.* >c:/Ddir.txt then Enter. There is a space between r and first asterisk, second asterisk and > sign.

Go to Local C disk and look for Ddir.txt and then copy paste the results next time.

Not to hijack the thread but I was wondering why the HP recovery partition would be written to. Maybe "D" is selected along with "C" in the system restore settings.

 

See Manually Creating Restore Points here.

 

See if "D" is checked.

1 File(s)              0 bytes

1 Dir(s)      33,550,336 bytes free

 

It seems that your D: partition is empty.

This is my d recovery partition directory on my HP Pavilion laptop.

Why?

What does this mean?

What should I do?

I may be wrong but I think the D: partition is full because there is only 33MB free. Type the following and post the Ddir.txt file

 

dir/s D:\RECOVERY >c:/Ddir.txt

 

Will give extra info if there are no hidden files.

 

To display hidden files before doing the above command you can type:

 

attrib -h D:\*.* /s /d

 

Edit: If this gives extra info on the D: partition please follow jhayz's advice.

...Type the following

dir/s D:\RECOVERY >c:/Ddir.txt

 

 

 

 

I typed this in the CMD but nothing happened.

 

I put a space between s and D and Y and >

Can you go to My Computer and then right-click D: partition - Properties and post the used and free space next time.

To display hidden files before doing the above command you can type:

 

attrib -h D:\*.* /s /d

 

Follow this step first before using the dir command again as suggested by  John_C or see again the instruction at post#23. If no go, use the right-click run as admin then try again.

dir/s D:\RECOVERY >c:/Ddir.txt

 

 

 

 

 

attrib -h D:\*.* /s /d

 

 

 

 

OK...I opened up cmd and typed... attrib(space)-h(space)D:\*.*/s/ddir/s(space)D:\RECOVERY(space)c:/Ddir.txt and got nothing.

attrib(space)-h(space)D:\*.*(SPACE)/s(space)/d <ENTER>

DIR/S D:\*.*(space)>C:\Ddir.txt <enter>    This will also show you files in the root of D:\

 

 

In the previous post I typed the slash wrong.Sorry.

 

dir/s D:\RECOVERY >c:/Ddir.txt should have been >c:\Ddir.txt

attrib(space)-h(space)D:\*.*(SPACE)/s(space)/d <ENTER>

 

 

~~~ I got "not resetting system file" followed by "D:\Protect Hungarian" (and a bunch of other languages)(also RCBoot.sys, SOURCES, System Volume Information, Tools and Windows)
 

DIR/S D:\*.*(space)>C:\Ddir.txt <enter>    This will also show you files in the root of D:\

 

 

 

 

~~~ *parameter format not correct - "SD:\*.*".

 

 

 

 

 

dir/s D:\RECOVERY >c:/Ddir.txt should have been >c:\Ddir.txt 

 

 

 

 

~~~ Parameter format not correct - "sD:RECOVERY".

My responses start with ~~~ above.
