    Windows Vista shows the error message “running out of disk space on RECOVERY (D:)” while creating backup for data

    While I was trying to create backup using built-in Backup program on my PC running on Windows Vista, I get an error message saying “Low Disk Space: You are running out of disk space on RECOVERY (D. To free space on this drive by deleting old or unnecessary files, click here”. The system offered me disk clean up after that. But, both office setupfiles and recycle bin shows zero bytes. What should I do to fix up this error message?

    Click the start button located at the bottom part of the desktop and wait until the search field appears on the screen along with start menu. Type Backup Status and Configuration into that field and press the ‘Enter’ key. You can find the ‘Backup Status and Configuration’ program among the search results. Click on that program to view the application window and find out ‘Automatic backup is currently turned on’ label. There is a ‘Turn Off’ option next to this label. Click on that option and then quit the application window. Then, click the ‘Computer’ option on the start menu and double click on ‘D’ drive. You can then view a MediaID.bin file as well as a folder on the screen with the same name as that of your computer. Right click on bot of them and select the ‘Delete’ option from context menu.
