D: recovery almost full and computer slow

 
0
 

I have an HP pavillion and my D:recovery drive is almost full less than 1G available, while my C: Drive still has plenty of space available. I have an external hard drive and copied the entire D: drive to it. My D: is FAT32 and External drive is NTFS will there be a compatability problem?

should not be a problem, also you should not have added anything to it as it for recovery only,to be used along with the recovery cd you should have !it should be let alone in case you need it to recover the computer

while my C: Drive still has plenty of space available. I have an external hard drive and copied the entire D: drive to it. My D: is FAT32 and External drive is NTFS will there be a compatability problem?

should not be a problem as long as when you copy it back the recover partition is still fat32

recovery partition will not slow down your computer ,
try a little cleaning with ccleaner .and malwarebytes .

I am running Verizon Internet Security by Radialpoint. Will I need to do anything with this program to run the anti-malware and ccleaner? You are also saying that it does not matter if the recovery drive is almost full as far as computer speed, correct? Thank you.

Also where do I save this backup I am supposed to do during the Reg Cleaner process?

the recovery partition has nothing to do with windows being slow ,Its just storage of the windows recovery ,incase you need to reload windows to your laptop .
the version IS shouldn't cause any problem with malwarebytes

From caperjack;
should not be a problem as long as when you copy it back the recover partition is still fat32

Meaning, keep it at fat32, changing to NTFS is a one-way process.

i just said that as im confused to his backing up the recovery partition ,and what would happen to it on a ntfs drive , nothing i assume ,if its just backed up to a folder on the ntfs drive . ,and not changing the recovery partition from fat32 to ntfs
its fat32 usually because its a norton ghost image .

also it shouldn't be getting full ,should not have changed as it not meant to add any files to it
