    Since updating to windows 7 from vista I keep getting this annoying message;

    Low disk space for back up drive D

    My back up is a partition on my C drive

    :confused:

    First, you should never make backups on the drive the operating system is installed on.

    If the hard drive crashes, thee goes your backups.

    Right-click on the D: drive, choose properties. That will tell you Used and Free space

    Also go to Start > Run, and type diskmgmt.msc.

    Now take a screen shot of that and post it back here for us to review.
