Many manufactures are putting a recovery disk on a separate partition instead of including a recovery disk. Cheap>>>>....!!
The intention is for the buyer to burn this info to a CD to use in case of reformat or HD death. If you don't, you won't have an OS!
Without knowing Brand ,OS version etc. can't be positive but 2 Megs seems VERY small for any OS disk. XP Home is about 105 megs itself.
Did you get a separate Recovery Disk & the 2 megs may be just settings or freebie adware trial version software?
May I suggest a USB Storage device (flash drive) to unload some docs/files/pics/etc onto, thereby freeing up HD space?? Looking carefully should get you 4 Megs of storage for less than US$40.
Is is safe to remove the "recovery data" folder from my HD this folder is 2 gigs in size and i need the extra space
is has 4 files in it recovery.PQL, recovery.002, recovery.003, recovery.004
