More info on your drives, how they are partitioned, do you have any free space to be able to expand the partition? Drives have a finitie amount of storage. How about posting a screencap from disk management so we can see how your drives are set up?

With disk management open hit printscreen, this will copy the screen to the clipboard, then open a new drawing in MSPaint and paste it in there, save and upload.

There is no file, it is on the clipboard...
Open MSPaint
create a new image, select edit paste and then save the file in paint.

The disk is maxed out, that is the recovery partition, you should not be writing anything to that partition, it is to recover the original installation in case of failure. What have you written to the D drive?

No, there is no free space on the disk. Modifying the system partition can get pretty shakey to try to free up space on C and then add it to d. XP won't do it, Vista may do it if it can, third party tools like easus partition manager might be able to do it, how much space do you have on the C drive? and what is on the D drive?

Hi,
As raptor_pa stated in his previous post the D: drive is your recovery partition.
If Vista is "automatically" backing up to this drive you are going to have issues (no disk space). Did you set Vista to backup to the D: drive?
You may have inadvertently.
The D: drive is for Recovery ONLY

You appear to have enough space on you C: drive to resize the partition and make a "new" partition. This will allow you to use this "new" partition for your backup.

Have you made or have the Recovery CD for this computer?
Can you tell us what is on the D: drive?
It should show you a recovery folder and that should be about it.

What is the make and model of this compaq computer?

Bill
