Windows 7: Can`t create a restore date

Try emptying the Recycle Bin since all of those GB's of restore points went there. The recycle Bin is also mirrored on the Recovery partition. I would suggest lowering the amount of space the Recycle Bin uses to store deleted files. I only have mine set to use 5000 MB for 7 drives and half of that is unneeded. Bill

If you in that screen for disk clean up of D hit clean system files does it show anything marked restore points and it would show it as a very big file size. If you see it check only it's box and uncheck everything else and hit ok.

Sorry I left you hanging yesterday. I had to leave for North Carolina to attend my cousins wedding. Which has been an real ordeal. First the cleaners didn't have my suit ready, So ok I'll buy one there. Then in a little remote town in N.C. the fan belt breaks and the car runs hot. Now trying to get a belt for a 572 CI Chevy V8 is almost impossible even in Atlanta. Espesially since there are only about 1000 of those engines in existence The man here at the gas station started calling everyone within 100 miles and after 3 hours found one in South Carolina 97 miles away. He sent his son to get it which took over 5 hours. Got the car fixed and made to my destination. For which I gladly paid the Station owner $600.00. Have since been trying to find a new suit and finally got that done. Have to pick it up 1 hour before the wedding. Finally got a little time to check my mails.

It looks to me from your screen shots that you are trying to make a backup image of your drive. If this is correct then it can't be done except to an external drive because you don't have enough space on the internal drive to do that. If this is what your trying to do then you will have to purchase an external drive at least large enough to hold all the data from all your internal partitions.

I will not be able to respond for some time but I will be back.

Bill you are talking about different issues but for the restoring from full dead you need a image of your hdd so that is the windows system image backup. The system restore is a way windows keeps recent changes to your machine and can roll back to it if your system is still working when you have small issues (bad driver install or bad windows update). The first one is more what we call a bare metal recovery. I'm at work on windows 8 at the moment so I can not leave a screen shot of the way to do a system image and pick what drive to do it on (seems your's keeps defaulting to D:\ which has no space left and its technically the same hdd so you would not want it there anyway). It does look like from your screenshots you have done a previous backup of your OS on that partition but its hard to tell if its yours or HP's factory recovery part. I would at this point leave it alone and do all backups on another HDD (external).

Below is the what you can click to make sure you did delete the restore points off the of the other partitions. Select the ones not labeled C:\ and configure them then chose the delete button to clean them of the old restore points if any just so your clean as possible.

When I get home I can give you screens for the system image method if you want.

Hope I have not confused you more.
Malcolm

EDIT: @Billmcct that sucks, hope it all went well.
