I have an HP Pavillion Laptop, about 3 years old and has always run really well, no complaints (had a slow Startup but that's been solved)- never any virus and a good performing little machine. I've always tried to keep it as clean as possible, all updates, etc. but I've noticed the "D" drive only has 4% space left!!!!! ( 370,163, 712 bytes free) Downloaded some movies from Gravoid and used up some of my room on the "C" drive, but I still have 15, 087, 095, 808 bytes free and once I view and delete the movies, will be more. Yet, how can I eaten up all that space on the D drive? I read it was being taken up by the backup and restore options, is this true?
Is there a way to clear this space? Would it be advisable for me to do this? I got an error message some time ago telling me there wasn't enough room, but I could never figure out what to do about it..... Any suggestions?
