TouchSmart 300-1120: drive recovery (D) shows that it is almost full. How to clean it?

I see now that my HP TouchSmart all in his recovery drive is almost full.  What should I do to clear up?  I find that what follows in the player: recovery (folder) and HP_WSD.dat.  Nothing else is seen here.

The reader says he began with 12 GB and now only has 1.0 rest.

I read that someone had this problem but it uninstall him their printer?   I use the HP Deskjet 3052 a. It would do me no harm? It is a wireframe / wireless.  I don't see how it would have something to do with the recovery disk.

I read that if you use Norton Online Backup, he would send information to the D: drive. However, I use Norton 360, but don't use online backup. Norton backup is only used once in a great while and used with an external HD.  I'm lost now, what to do to do this, please I hope someone can help me understand this.

Hi again CurryK15,

Thanks for the quick response!

It is normal that the recovery Partition to use a considerable amount of space. Over time, your system will be periodically save your system information in case a system recovery becomes necessary.

While I do not recommend it, you can delete the recovery Partition by following this resource on the removal of the HP recovery Partition. This resource is geared toward the withdrawal of this drive on laptop computers, but the same principles apply to your office.

I hope this helps!

Best regards

  • Recovery disk - I restored my files, but the drive keeps telling me that it is almost full

    Recently, I backed up my files on the recovery drive. I have restored my files, but the drive keeps telling me that it is almost full. I don't know how to fix this.

    Restoring a backup does not remove the backup files.  You must remove them manually, unless you want to save in case another restore of that backup is necessary.

    And if you did it on your manufacturer's recovery disk, it wasn't a good idea.  This disc is for recovery only and should be used for anything else.  Find another drive to use for backups.  If this is the case, it may be best to contact the manufacturer and tell them that you were doing so they can help you to correctly resolve the situation without causing problems for disk recovery and your ability to use it as it should be used the need ever.

    I hope this helps.

  • HP TouchSmart 300-1120: the video card upgrade

    I came into possession of a HP Touchsmart 300-1120. I do not use not for the games just the navigation and use to watch movies when traveling through Plex home theater.

    I've updated the CPU to an Athlon X 4 605th & maxed out the RAM 8 GB. I noticed that I can upgrade the video card using the Mobile PCI Express Module slot.  Even though I know that the GPU Radeon HD 3200 onboard can handle HD videos, he hangs out considerably. even though I have the film on the hard drive.

    So the question is, where can find one of these cards. And is there a way to upgrade the PSU?

  • TouchSmart 300-1120 video card

    Howdy all!

    I recently had my laptop die (which was a disappointment), but I was lucky enough to find a HP 300-1120 which should serve as a good replacement under the machine I keep in my cabin.

    Now, HP has a intel Radeon 3200 card in it. But when we learned this machine, we also found a broken HP 300-1060 has, which looks identical, but has a nvidea GeForce g210, which is a much better graphics card with dedicated memory. Can I get out of this machine, which is broken and put it in this one? The breakage of the machine were able to be controlled by card.

    Hello

    Yes, you can put the nVidia graphic card in the HP 300-1120. The motherboards in the two computers are the same, so I suggest to remove the processor as well. The processor in the 1060ea is a triple core Athlon X 3 400e which is better than X 2 in the 1120.

    Both computers take in charge the onboard graphics, but when a dedicated is installed in the integrated card is disabled.

  • Pavilion x 2: recovery drive full, how to clean it?

    My computer keeps popping up an alert that tells me that my recovery disk is full. How to clean it? Even when I clean my C drive, he cleared only for a few weeks, then the alert on the recovery disk (D) is complete.

    Hello

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to simply move the folder - there will be too many other references to it (registry, etc).

    What I would say is to try to uninstall all software printer since entering programs and features (with a bit of luck, the uninstall routine will have the correct path) - If this is successful, restart the laptop.

    When windows rebooted, open the recovery partition D and Remove the Program Files (x 86) folder.

    Restart the laptop again.

    To restart, if everything looks now Ok - no space warning disk etc. - you can download the installation package of the printer at the following link.

  • The Profile Manager shows that my new profile. How do my default profile?

    I made a new profile to use exclusively with an alternate version of Firefox. My regular version has accidentally opened this new profile, so I tried to use the Profile Manager to set it as default. However, the Profile Manager is only show my new profile. / AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles shows that I have always my fault and my new profile. Put Pei 'default' in the line just target opens the Profile Manager. How to get back to my default profile or if it will appear in the Profile Manager?

    When a profile is not displayed in the Profile Manager, then you can register for this profile using Profile Manager to create a new profile.
    You can click on the button "Choose a folder" to make Firefox recognizes and uses an already existing profile.

    It is best to create a shortcut on the desktop that selects a specific profile (PEI "profile_name") to avoid opening a profile with a bad version of Firefox.

    Be sure to select the profile in the browser by default in the Profile Manager, for that is used when you click on a link in an external program.

    You can use the - No.-remote command line switch to open another instance of Firefox with its own profile and run multiple instances of Firefox at the same time.

    Hi, I started using lightroom 6 months ago and now my 500 g external drive is almost full.

    How can I continue using a new disc? Should I create a catalog by using exactly the same name or drag the catalogue old through without the actual RAW photos?

    ...

    Maybe 6 months work and 38 000 of Canon 1 d & 5ds raw photos are too much to have 1 catalog?

    I work only with 1 catalog, I should create new catalogs more often?

    No, I know users who have photos of 250,000 in a catalog and run them properly. Optimize the catalogue allows from time to time.

  • HP TouchSmart 300-1120 do not start and with noisy fan

    Hello

    Children were using the PC and recording of large amount of data (about 30 GB) on desktop? Suspecting this could be trigerred overheating that caused the major failure. The dust was found on the heatsink, but nothing was completely clogged.

    When you press the power button, no startup process is initialied and the fan is too loud like a helicopter. Tried the reset of that power on the power button but nothing done and the same thing happened. HARD drive is quite slow during the withdrawal and during the data recovery attempt, which succeeded, after all. Any suggestions please?

    Thank you.

    Hello again @nedzads,

    Thanks for the comments on my post, that they are appreciated. Given what you said and asked about your computer, I will say this. First with many HP computers there are different motherboards that can be used in them. Unfortunately, yours is not one of these. Far as I can see the only motherboard recommended for your computer is the motherboard of Jesse. However, I can give you a bit of advice. Based on what you have said is no longer functional and need to replace I advise you to contact HP Technical Support before commit you to a project like this. Technical support HP has alternatives that may be less expensive and provide you with a computer that is already updated. There is nothing to say that we must commit to anything, but it would be worth the trip I think.

  • I have deleted many programs and files on my system, but drive C never changes in size, he always tells me it's almost full, how do I know what files in windows are also safe to delete

    I deleted a lot of files and programs of C.drive but he never looks any different, it almost always shows full.  Can someone also tell me what programs within Windows are safe to remove.

    OK, if your computer works well here is how to save a huge amount of disk space and is sure to do. In your Start Menu, open computer. Check your free space, take a note. Right-click on OS(C:) et choisissez Propriétés.) Click Disk Cleanup and wait for it to complete the calculation. See the list of available items to remove. Click on an element and below, you'll see a descripion of what it is. Put a check mark in the box of files that you want to remove. Take note of the cleanest Hibernation file, if you remove these you must go to Power Options and enable the hibernation. Also check the files for downloaded programs files by clicking view files. If you want to keep some you should keep all or delete will delete all. You can remove all these if you want to that they will be downloaded according to your needs. Click OK and confirm. These files are recreated when you use your computer. Click Disk Cleanup again and choose the tab of Options more. Here you can remove programs that you do not use. Leave that for now. You will gain a huge amount of space by clicking on clean for the system restore and shadow copies. Click Clean up and confirm. It will take three to five minites then wait until it ends. IF it seems to click long cleaning again and confirm, and the page needs to close. Close the other page also. Now close and reopen the desktop page and you will see a huge difference.
