Low Disk Space on Recovery Partition

q: We deployed a number of new HP and Dell systems recently with a very small, very fully recovery partition.  The partition picked up a drive letter and now Windows 7 has to tell us about the Low Disk Space over and over. What can we do?
a: As this site recommends - there are two basic solutions. Tell Windows to stop caring about Low Disk or Remove the drive letter.  I've tried removing the drive letter, but it comes back on the reboot.  Then I tried Option Two from this site and deleted the single registry entry from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices as they describe and it worked perfectly.
