  1. 13GB unused Recovery Partition


    I have so many recovery partitions and I can't delete any of them.

    And there's also 13MB unallocated memory which I can't merge.

    Is the 13GB recovery partition necessary? or can I delete it?

    If I can delete it, then how?


    Thanks in advance 13GB unused Recovery Partition da1c56fa-074e-4f1e-be89-7dd2e92c11ca?upload=true.png

    Unused 11GB recovery partition

    The recovery partition is use is the 4th partition. Since your drive has a modified configuration, I do not know where the MSR partition is but the Recovery tools are on the 11 GB partition or the OS partition.

    Using Diskpart to list the partitions on the drive may help. Again, use a admin command prompt

    Diskpart

    How To: Create recovery partition.

    it worked when i copied all the files of the disk to the recovery partition i created, but i had to use WinPE tab to add the entry.

    Type: WIM Image (Ramdisk)
    Name: Recovery
    Path: Z:\Sources\boot.wim
    and hit Add Entry
    I tried it in VirtualBox and it worked.
    At first, it would add a second "Windows 7" entry to the list, but when the installation is finished, the old one is deleted. (I formatted only C: partition)

    Lost recovery partition

    Hello, I see that you are having issues with recovery partition. I would suggest you using the diskpart command in the command prompt. First, open up the comand prompt as an administrator, then type in diskpart. Now, type in list disk, and look for the
    recovery partition drive. Follow the steps in the link below:
