Why does Windows Vista report that my backup drive is full when it isn’t?

I’m really not sure if this is a hardware problem or a Windows problem.

Windows is constantly telling me that my D drive, which is my back up drive, is full and that it needs cleaning. When I do the clean disc function that Windows Vista provides, the only thing that comes up on Drive D is the recycle bin, which is always empty, but I go ahead and let it “erase” it anyway because otherwise it interrupts me 10,000x an hour.

What causes this message and how can I stop it?
