  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.

    deleting hard drive files

    Hi,

    May we know what type of file are you trying to delete? Would it be Office documents, media files, or picture files? If you're trying to delete files for free some space on your device. We suggest to perform a Disc Cleanup. Kindly follow the steps below to
    perform the task:

    • Type in Cortana Disc Cleanup
    • Choose the files to delete
    • Click on "Clean up system files"
    • Click on Ok

    For any concerns, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Regards.
