    My D drive is completely full and slowing down my computer. I get a regular error message that "factory image D drive" maxed out. There is no free space and I have no idea how to clean the folder. The files within were not put in by me (factory image) therefore I don't know which ones to delete or if I can delete all.

    Hi and Welcome to TSG,
    I had the same problem on my Vista I found that System Restore points were being created in both 'C' and 'D' (recovery). I stopped System Restore to clear out all old restore points and then changed System Restore to save on 'C' only. That solved it for me.
    Hope that helps?

    If not see what else is suggested.
