HOW CAN I UNDO A BACKUP TO A HARDRIVE PARTITION?

In an attempt to backup my entire PC I beleive I mistakenly tried to copy everything to the D drive. Now my D drive has only 15% available free space on it. The recovery partition is in intact. How do I undo  this error without messing upm the recovery Partition. I just had windows Vista Ultimate installed and was trying to back up my PC with this new OS, along with files and settings. There is a red bar showing how much disk space usage and and available free space. How do I undo this?

I assume drive C: is your real drive.
What is the letter of your recovery partition?  If it is NOT d:, you can just delete the files from drive d: that you do not want.

If you want to backup to drive d: use Windows Backup.  That will create one large .bkf file.
You can also turn on compression on the d: drive from diskmanger.
