    so if one were computer illiterate and deleted his recovery drive, D: then did a fresh install from scratch so i could activate tpm and file history again, pc did not have D: on, it had about 58mb of data left, which i asssumed would be program files. I could not do a back up as it wouldnot recognize drive. went to boot order set defaults from factory, the drive was in order there but still no, so i thought i would be smart and use file explorer to put windows backup copy files to D:. it quickly became full as i picked a wrong folder. password have changed up and went wonky so i made pass reset disk(i hope) and im afraid to reboot. there were issues startingnto happen a day before i made it worse, failed updates kb1809 tho i was running 1809 powershell critical alerts, etc what should I do (besides stop fixing it)?

    :)

  2. how to delete "disk D" recovery disk files ?

    Hello Tom,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    D: Drive is the Recovery Partition, that the Manufacturer has created, for your computer to put it back to factory settings in case of System Crash.

    You can make Recovery disks from D in case of a Hard Drive failure.

    Do not delete any files that are associated to recovery! Do not delete the items RECOVERY, $RECYCLE.BIN, boot,pcdr, or PRELOAD! Doing so can prevent a future system recovery from the hard drive.

    I would suggest you to contact HP support before making any changes to the Partition.

    Hope this information was helpful.

    Thank you.

    C windows installer folder - Delete?

    He can do symbolic link redirection and move the files in it to a different location. *Wink deleted full recovery D:, then filled it w windows prog files manually. derp ;)
    Better try it out in a virtual of first. Just a suggestion.

    Like:
    First move everything in c:\windows\installer to d:\installercache
    Then delete c:\windows\installer folder
    Then type this in command mode as admin
    mklink /d c:\windows\installer d:\installercache

    Removing those installer files is a bad idea. it might prevent you from updating or uninstalling apps.

    Best free file recovery

    My mate was doing a back up and somehow managed to delete a lot of important files and photos, he has downloaded a program called pctools which does file recovery and it finds the files though to recover them he has to pay, he is a bit dubious about paying before the recovery incase it doesnt do as advertised, does anyone know of any good free file recovery apps that actually work.

    The files shouldnt be too hard to recover as they were just deleted from the recycle bin and the drive hasnt been formatted, any help appreciated.
