i know this much: on compaq presarios the default drive letter for the recovery partition is D, so if you have not modified your drive letters in any way, do not delete or modify drive D because most likely this is your recovery partition. if you delete it you will not be able to recover your computer if something went wrong.

Well, if randy is correct, then it shouldn't be "filling up". You should not be accessing this partitoin for anything or storing anything in there.

That's assuming that randy is correct. You didn't give us a heck of a lot of info to go off of though.

It's like Tech Help sharades.

That's the recovery partition.. basically, don't touch it. If you've got some junk on there, delete it. It should remain exactly as it was when you purchased your computer since it is used for recovery purposes in case something goes wrong.
