Windows 7: Recovery drive almost full

Recovery drive almost full

I have not noticed before the recovery drive on my computer. The bar is red!!! It shows only 1.93 gb free of 20.8 gb. I do not know what this means. I remember seeing it in the past but it was not red. I am afraid that this could be a warning of something to happen. Should i do anything??? Please try to be simple with your answer, i am technically challenged!!! Thanks, ag

An additional comment. I have never stored anything in this drive. When I click on it, it shows a warning from HP in blue lettering indicating that it should not be touched. I also right clicked Properties and under Previous Versions it shows something modified on 11/16/14. Not sure what this means, I have never done anything in this drive. Thanks, AG
