A brief background:
When we purchased this laptop (a Dell Inspiron), it came with Windows 7, the 64-bit version. My wife is taking a work-from-home job which only supports the 32-bit version of Windows 7, so I had to go out and buy the lesser version after just buying her a brand-new computer
I accidentally installed the 32-bit version on the C: drive (recovery) because -- as I stated above -- I've never seen anything BUT the large hard drive be labeled C...
Now I don't have enough space left to do a system restore and I keep getting pop-up windows stating I don't have enough memory left...
I really just want to restore my recovery drive to the way it was, if possible. If I have to, I guess we can just delete it off altogether if that's the only option available to me at this point...
I have now installed the needed 32-bit version to my D drive, which hopefully shows up as it was done correctly to you guys in my screenshot above.
Let me know if you have any more questions...
He needs the space, he's getting space warnings and he just needs the 32-bit and that would be the easiest way to go don't you agree?

Hmmm... OK, question:
I'm following the steps, and I'm just before step #2 where it asks me for System Recovery Options.
It gives me a chocie of using recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows..
I don't need to FIX the Windows 7 OS on the Recovery disk... I need to DELETE it!
That make any sense?
