I have 2 drives, C: (69.2 GB) all system files. D: (65.7 GB) a backup & my data. I want to install a new s/w of 12 GB in D:, but its low memory(10.5MB) showing. I tried to delete the backup, but his does not work. I tried diskcleanup, but still the same problem persists. I checked, there isn't any extra file to D:. It's just because of the backup. Can someone please tell me, how to remove the full backup.

Hi kisna234567,

·         You get the error message?

The main objective of the Windows backup and Restore Center is to save the data either automatically in according to the schedule or manually when you want to save data. It is not designed to replace the old data with the new data. Just backup and Restore Center totals with new data every time, and would not remove the old files.

You can backup the old files and folders to storage device as the external hard drive, CD, DVD, USB flash drives and removes the backup files of the computer. You can format the backup partition.

Caution:

·         Formatting a volume will destroy all data on the partition. Be sure to make backups of all the data to save before you begin.

·         You cannot format a disk or partition that is currently in use, including the partition that contains Windows.

·         Quick format is a formatting option that creates a new file table, but do not completely overwrite or erase the volume. A quick format is much faster than a normal format, which fully erases the existing data on the volume.

Follow these steps:

(a) open computer management by clicking the Start button, select Control Panel, click system and Maintenance, click Administrative Toolsand then double-click computer management. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

(b) in the Navigation pane, under storage, click disk management.

(c) right click on the volume that you want to format, and then click format.

(d) to format the volume with the default settings, in the format dialog box, click OK, and then click OK again.

For reference: create and format a hard disk partition.

    Hello

    The best way is to clean install and start over.

    In addition, it is not legal to have both installed version that the license is for a single installation.

    If it is a dual boot with 32 bit and 64 bit installed on different partitions, there would not have been the conflicts you would have never started in one or the other.

    You are unable to make the back because you've done your backup file in drive D: that is your recovery Partition. You are NOT supposed to do.
    Recovery partiton has a very small disk space, no time to fill up the partition.
    Read this...

    Your recovery partition D is implemented by the manufacturer of your computer in the event of serious problems in your system.
    You use it to restore your system.

    You're NOT supposed to touch it... not to add or remove anything from or to it.

    Have you been using the D drive for scheduled backups of file?
    If this is the case, you call the manufacturer of the computer, tell them the situation...

    1. ask for a set of recovery DVD to reinstall Vista, if you do not have a game made yourself.
    2. ask how to remove backup files or elements that are NOT supposed to be there.
    They created the recovery partition, they know how to take care of it.
    Let them teach how you to.
    ..................................................................................................................

    RE: d ' training is complete

    D: is the recovery Partition to your computer at the factory standards,
    and to make you recovery disks from!

    Contact * Dell * purchase DVD recovery and fixation of your recovery Partition.
    They know exactly which files have to be there and those who you
    delete!

    In the future, buy an external hard drive and back up to that.
