There's nothing wrong, and you don't have to do anything.
Some computer makers, including Dell and HP/Compaq, put a recovery partition on the hard disk of new computers. By pressing a special key combination when the computer starts, you can use the recovery partition to restore the computer to the way it was
when it was new.
Windows 7 has assigned drive letter D: to the recovery partition, but nothing in the system will access it, and it doesn't matter that it's almost full.
I recommend that you remove the drive letter from the recovery partition to stop the message about D: from appearing:
1. Click the Start button.
2. Type diskmgmt.msc in the Search box and press
3. In the Disk Management window, right-click the recovery partition.
4. Click Change Drive Letter and Paths .
5. Click Remove .
