I recently purchased an HP Pavilion g6. I received a message that the BIOS should be updated. I said OK and now the partition for recovery data is filled and I continually have a message to that effect flashing on the screen. How do I clear space in the partition or make it larger? It is the E partition on my computer.
I think E is HP_TOOLS partition, double check that.
Ignore this warning for now, bios update stores the old bios files that were replaced on the HP_TOOLS partition, in case the bios becomes corrupted it can be rolled back to a previous version, a critical and needed feature.
DO Not try to modify the partitions, be warned.
I have posted a bug report with HP about this, I will edit this post if I get feedback.
If it is the Recovery Partition, use Windirstat to see what is on Recovery drive E, if you see a folder named as your User name, then you have Windows System Restore turned on for E, it needs to be turned off. Once Windirstat runs (may take a while), expand the E drive to see folders on E.
