Most people will think that you are talking a RAM memory.
The amount of Drive C unused space is fine. Of course if you start saving a lot of music, photos, and video, you could eat that space up fairly fast. Just keep an eye on it. Learn to burn your photos, video, and sonfgs to CD's so that you can remove them from the drive if you need space.
What is the HP recovery? I think that it may be the partition [drive] that HP creates for recovery. If that is so, don't worry about that, HP established the size of that partition soley for their data. There is likely no way that you could change it. Best to not play with that partition.
Just a note. A partition is a separate logical drive placed on the single drive that you actually have. Windows treats a partition exactly as if it really were a separate hard drive.
Have you taken the time to buy a recovery CD, or burn one from that partition in accordance with instructions from HP's website?? If not, do so immediately, and make two just to be doubly safe. Also Clearly mark it and save them somewhere that they won't be lost just when you need it.
