Recently my Recovery partition turned red showing it was almost full. Well I have tried using disc management to extend it but it won't let me. even when i have unallocated space. the option is gray scaled. well i tried to open up the partition and do it a way an HP tech guy told me to but when i try to i get the screen that "this is a recovery manager and editing could cause you computer not to restore" then it doesn't let me do anything more. Any help would be appreciated.
i didn't add anything to that drive. i know to leave it alone. my computer messed up and created a bunch of restore junk to add to it after i did backup and all that. i talked to the tech guy and i got that problem fixed. so yeah that wasn't my fault. but now i can't delete or extend or anything to that drive and i need to so to get rid of all the messages and stuff bout it almost being full.
From what I know about those partitions, you can neither create or dlete files from them but I guess you found a way to. I would try getting to a command prompt and see what lies outside that image (check the dates on the files) to cpmare against the original and delete the newer ones.
