    D Drive cannot find

    Not enough space on Recovery (DD Drive cannot find :) drive.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Please help me with the following:

    1. What is the make and model number of your Computer?


    Please note that recovery "D" is a partition on the hard drive which contains the image of the Operating system. You can use it to restore the computer back to factory settings. You should not attempt to store files in it.
    If you have any data saved on the D drive, I would suggest you to move it to an external drive and to free up some space, you can follow the steps provided in the article:
    Free up drive space in Windows 10.



    If you are using a HP computer, then you can refer to this article:
    HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - What is the Recovery (DD Drive cannot find :) Hard Drive?



    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking on Yes or No.
