I get this annoying message that says something to the effect that my "recovery D drive is full" This particular computer has hardly anything saved on it. Our business has all the saved stuff. Tried to defrag and that didn't work. Anybody have any ideas Thanks.

'Recover Drive D' tends to suggest that D is the drive used to restore the system in the event of a system error. Have you been copying files to that drive for your own backup purposes? That could explain the message.
It does seem odd though as the Recovery Drive is normally hidden from view under normal circumstances.

Precisely. The HP recovery drive is a small (couple of GB) partition that's used by HP's system utilities to restore the OS to factory-fresh condition. No one should try to write there, nor should you try to build a virtual memory page file there. I suspect the OP inadvertently did one of the above.

Copying files

I got a new HP laptop and attempted to copy files from my old computer using the utility that came with the new laptop. I have a D drive on my old computer that contains pictures and MP3 files. This utitily doesn't ask where you want to put files, it just places them in like places. It filled up the D drive very quickly. I deleted those files and used a different way to copy files from old computer to new one.

The correct file on D is called RECOVERY.

I have not copied anything to it. as a matter of fact I went in and deleting some programs from it to no avail. Oh well I guess I will just live with it until I get a new computer.
