I Very new at all this stuff.
I don't know much of the terminology.

I tried to follow the instructions given but screwed up somewhere while trying to backup files and folders to the 'D' drive (what ever that is). I got a popup saying that it didn't have enough space to finish.
Now I get a popup that informs me that I'm low on disc space every time i boot up. Can I undo that backup?

You will find MANY threads here about your problem.
You should NOT be backing things up to your D drive as it is the "System Recover" partition. It is used to REBUILD your machine back to factory settings.

Yes, you should be able to delete the backup files.

Now, go out and get yourself a External USB drive and a Disk Imaging program and use them.

Open Windows Explorer (Computer) and then select the "D" drive, there you should see a listing of "Folders and Files".
Post a screen shot of that listing and we MAY be able to tell you which items to delete.
