Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario C700T ?

I get a message saying my D drive is full

\015 My son thought that he should back up the computer before the ''worm''scare. We have a Compaq Presario C700 laptop. After he did whatever he did , there is always a warning that the D drive is full . What has he done and how do I fix it?\015

Answers :

Running Vista right.

For some God awful reason HP has the default backup area as the D Drive. This is where tht built in restore partition is stored. Even better you sometimes can't get the discs to burn as they should because the system might believe that the backup has been made already.

Try this again and make sure it says that it is the DVD burner. Oh, and be sure to burn this to DVD. It will take a few DVDs rather than nearly 20 CDs to back up the system.

Don't forget to make copies of tehose discs as you are only allowed to make one set.

Please for the love of all things don't try to remove the files from the D drive as you might remove something you shouldn't and kill the restore partition.

I also recommend picking up a better incremental backup solution such as Acronis True Image. Last I checked it was about $40. Much better and more secure that windows restore points as many viruses can directly infect the Windows restore files.
