Vista error--You are running out of disk space on RECOVERY(D
by geralda - 11/23/07 8:35 PM
I have a new Dell Laptop(7mo.old)with Vista Home Basic 6.0.6000
with the following specs:
Memory:1GB/ Hard Drive:120GB/ Intel Core Duo 2MB/ Vista PC Restore
MS Office/Word Home edition/Norton Antivirus/Adobe Acrobat 7/HP printer,copier,scanner,/Roxio DVD/RW
I have not stored music/videos/or pictures on the computer and only minimal text documents. I have never manually requested Recovery.
I have had nothing but trouble with the Vista but have managed to solve most until now.
Suddenly I started getting a popup which says: "You are running out of disk space on RECOVERY(D:)"-->Disk cleanup-->Cleanup files-->Recycle bin which shows only "normal.dotm=17KB(this I had to remove to make my Word program work but have been loath to delete because I don't know if I may need it in the future) and besides it says that "amount gained by deletion = 0KB.
I have read all of the threads on CNET concerning this but most are for XP and don't seem to apply. I am very loathe to tinker with the registry since I really know very little about computers. I would deeply appreciate any help(in simple specific language please).
Thank you. A senior novice
