Windows 10 RE Tools

Hello,
I searched within EE on this subject and I might say too many non related answers were found, so I will ask.

I have this annoying pop-up message from Windows RE Tools not having enough memory.  I have clicked on the message and done a system file clean up, which there were none to clear.  I have looked at the drive with the System File manager and it is shown with a red fill indicator.  Searched the internet but have not found anything that is helpful.
How can I add more memory to this drive/partition?  I read that I can delete drivers, but I do not see any files.

The recovery partition is a hidden partition of at least 300MB.  You would have to use Disk Management to shrink your system partition and then expand the size of the RE partition.  

You can also move the recovery partition to a different drive with more space - here are full instructions:  https://www.sepago.com/blog/2012/07/25/windows-recovery-environment-re-explained

what is the "System File manager " ?  i don't know that one
post a screenshot of the drive with it's fill

i would not touch the system partition - after all it's only 300 MB so your gain there would be minimal

the best ways to free up space are :
-uninstall old or not used software
-delete temp files and folders ( you can use disk cleanup for this part)
1.Click Start.
2. Click All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Disk Cleanup.
3.Select Drive C from the drop-down menu.
4.Click OK.

but the most is gained usually by moving the data and picture files to another drive (external or internal) and delete them from this drive

I had prior to this question, tried Cleanup.  Did not do what Dyer suggested, but I made changes that it appears the annoying pop-up message is now eliminated.
