Upgrading to 7 from Windows Vista.
I am just about to upgrade to 7 (64 bit) from Vista but would like an answer to a matter puzzling me.
I have a two- HD system ....C /D and a recovery partition E. The E has the recovery files for Vista on it.
I am not very technical so the question might appear stupid but should I remove the contents of E with a Format?. I shall never have to avail of this again. In any event, I am always receiving notifications in System Health Reports that there is less than 13% available on this section. My reason in asking this is so that I can go over to 7 without any unneccessary "baggage" in tow.

I would definitely get rid of the Vista partition and utilize the space for the new, Windows 7 installation.
Having said that, are you using an upgrade version of Windows 7 or the full, retail version?
If it is the former, you may want to keep Vista if you ever want to re-install 7, although if you create a system image of your new installation you can restore your system from that, which makes keeping Vista irrelevent.
