No memory with nothing on computer

Hi guys
Last week i installed windows seven again because my computer stuffed up blah blah blah,
anyway when i installed it i tried to download something and it says i have no space free.

So i tried deleting heaps of stuff i dont need but still no space back.

i looked in ny computer file it has local disk which is fine, but there's another folder that's popped up called RECOVERY with 0 bytes free of 14.6. in the file it has program files, program files x86, users, recovery and windows.

How do i delete this file and get all my space back so i can download stuff and install stuff like java even!

It would appear you are attempting to install Windows onto the recovery partition of your system. This partition is provided by the computer manufacturer to re-install the Operating system and all manufacturer specific items without using a disc. removing the contents of the recovery partition is possible but not a good idea.

When you are installing from a separate disc, check the options for the location to install to, you should have other partitions available or an area of un-allocated space, one of these is the correct location for install, 14.6, I assume GByte? is not sufficcient to install Windows 7 on, from a practical point of view, even if it were all free space

Your RECOVERY is most likely the recovery partition. But it is hard to tell without more info. Plse post a picture of your Disk Management so that we can have a closer look.
