Error Taking Back in Windows-7

Hi All,

I'm facing a problem whenever i'm trying to take backup of my system in a external hard drive. The error message that i get is i dont have enough space. Which i understand i have dont have enough space in my recovery which is a part of c drive only and is a part of system.

Now this is what i did because of which i don't have space by mistake i loaded the windows-7 in recovery partition as well and realised my mistake and then went ahead and removed it from control panel option as a result it removed it at the time of booting. However it still installed at my recovery which is under c drive because of which it's still full.

Now because of which i'm not able to take any back of my laptop and i tried to extend the recovery drive under C but was fail to do so.

Now what is the solution for this..How can i take a back up of my system?

Enclosed is the screenshots for your reference:-

1st One shows the error message because of No space available.
2nd One shows that what are my drives and how much space is their and as you can see i dont have any space in the recovery drive rest all the drives have available space.
3rd one shows that i dont even see the recovery drive so i don't know how to delete contents from it or to fix it.

You do not need to delete anything from it.
Simply use third party backup tool such as Paragon Backup & Recovery 12 Free http://www.paragon-software.com/home/br-free/download.html
It will let you take backup of system drive which you actually need.
