You can not mess with recovery partition. You can only back up c drive only one time. If you try to back up recovery gets messed up with message drive is full. I don’t have a clue what you mean by nbsp ?? The best thing to do is go to hp site and order recovery dvd for about $16 to $20 and then delete recovery partition.
